Dylan Mackin scored eight goals for Livingston

Falkirk have signed striker Dylan Mackin from Scottish Premiership newcomers Livingston for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old, who scored nine goals last season, has agreed a one-year contract with the Championship club.

Eight of his goals came in 21 appearances for Livi before he joined Brechin City on loan in January.

Falkirk manager Paul Hartley said: "He is a physical presence who will add a different dimension to our attack."

Mackin began his career with Motherwell and had spells on loan to Airdrieonians and Alloa Athletic before joining Livingston on a two-year deal last summer.

His transfer to Falkirk includes a sell-on clause for Livi should he command a fee in future.

More than half of Mackin's appearances for Livingston were as a substitute.

His departure follows the arrival of former Rangers striker Kenny Miller as player-manager.
