The trio, who worked under Harvey at Penicuik, were announced by the League Two side late on Monday after impressing on trial.

Harvey said: “I’m absolutely delighted to finally have these three boys tied down. These are three players I have a great amount of trust in, they have worked under me for a number of years now and they know the demands of playing in my teams. They have shown over the last few weeks as trialists they have the quality to make a difference to our team.”

Hume and Barr both scored at Borough Briggs in Berwick’s 4-2 victory over Elgin City, which ignited Harvey’s reign - Barr netted a tenacious goal, stealing the ball off Craig Beattie to slot home, whilst Hume nodded in from a free-kick.

Barr was back on the scoresheet against Clyde last weekend, and also won the man of the match award. Forbes scored at Broadwood too.

Harvey added: “All three bring different attributes that will compliment what we already have in our dressing room.”
