Irvine Meadow boss Colin Spence hopes he has unearthed a gem in Connor Boyd.
Medda snapped up the 23-year-old striker after he banged in eight goals in two friendlies last week.
A 12-minute hat-trick against Irvine Vics and five goals and an assist in the first half of a bounce game 24 hours later convinced Spence to get a deal done.
Boyd, a former Killie pro-youth player, spent last season in the amateur ranks with Hurlford Thistle.
Spence said: “We brought Connor in for a look and he certainly grabbed his chance with both hands.
“That’s the squad pretty much sorted and while there’s no pressure on the lad, hopefully we’ve found a wee gem.”
