Livingston FC is pleased to confirm that striker Jack Hamilton has been recalled to the club following a successful loan spell with League 1 side, East Fife.
A goal on his Bayview debut in a 2-0 Betfred Cup win against Cowdenbeath set the tone for the loan as the 20 year-old helped himself to 9 goals in 13 appearances.
7 goals in 9 League 1 matches sees Jack sitting second in the goal scorer charts, one behind Cove striker Mitch Megginson. He leaves the Fifers having bagged the winner in a fine 2-1 win at home to Falkirk last weekend which seen East Fife move to within 3 points of the promotion play-off places.
Manager Davie Martindale said: “I am absolutely delighted to have Jack back and available for our upcoming games as it gives us a different option up front and at the end of the day, Jack is a goal threat when he plays. 9 goals in 13 games for East Fife is a fantastic stat.
“There’s no doubt that Darren Young and East Fife have been excellent for Jack and I’m sure that is a mutual opinion from their side too. I would like to thank them for allowing Jack’s loan deal to be cut short but will stress that there may be the option for Jack re-join them later in the window.
“With us having an incredibly busy schedule coming up and East Fife scheduled for the Scottish Cup at the weekend, it made sense to bring Jack back in for our upcoming games as he wouldn’t have played for East Fife in the Scottish Cup this window anyway.
“I am delighted to have Jack back, a move which can only help us all as a team.”
Jack will continue to wear the number 38 shirt and will be available for selection for Sunday’s Premiership clash with Ross County .
