Kevin O’Hara joins DunfermlineFriday, 10th Jul 2020
21 year old striker joins Dunfermline from Alloa Athletic on a three year deal.
After a mutually agreed compensation arrangement was sorted out between both clubs Kevin O’Hara joins Dunfermline on a three year deal. The 21 year old is a product of the Forth Valley Football Academy and began his professional career at Falkirk. O`Hara was released by Falkirk at the end of the 2018–19 season, following the club`s relegation to League One. He left the Bairns having made 43 appearances and in July last year signed for Alloa where he scored fourteen goals in 35 appearances. He has two Scotland caps at both U19 and U16 levels. Kevin`s first comments were:-
"I am absolutely delighted to come to Dunfermline, it is a massive club and I have enjoyed playing here over the years. I am a Dunfermline player now and my aim is to score goals and make Dunfermline as good as it could be."

Manager Stevie Crawford has known Kevin as a youth at Falkirk and he said:-
“Last year Kevin was given a platform by Peter Grant at Alloa and he did fantastically well for them. He probably got a bit of belief in himself that he could score goals at that level. We are very fortunate that we have somebody coming in at 21 years of age with a good part of his career now ahead of him.“
