McBride is back in the country having enjoyed a spell playing for Davenport University in the United States, while Smith has signed a loan deal from parent club Hibernian.

There is further good news in the shape of Blair Atkinson and Brad Raiker extending their loans from Spartans until the end of the season.

Chris Anderson said of his new recruits: “We are delighted to welcome back Andy Martin who has signed from Whitehill.

“Andy was a popular player in his last spell at Vale and we are excited to see what he can bring this time around.

“Craig McBride has also been added after a spell playing in America and will add competition in defence.

“I’m also delighted to have secured three promising players for the rest of season on loan deals.”
