ROSS County have failed to hold on to striker Andrew Barrowman, who has joined SPL newcomers Dunfermline.

The 26-year-old former Inverness frontman left the Staggies after a second spell at Victoria Park.

He has joined the Pars on a two year contract.

"He is a big boy, good in the air and a bit different from what we have in attacking options," said Dunfermline manager Jim McIntyre.

"We felt we needed a target man to compliment the types of strikers we have and have not really had anybody like him since Graham Bayne left."

Barrowman scored 29 goals during his first spell in Dingwall between August 2007 and June 2008, when he joined Inverness.

He netted only two goals before moving back to County on loan in February last year and scored five time before the end of the season.

Last summer he moved back to Victoria Park on a free transfer and scored five goals last season.

County had been in negotiations with Barrowman to keep him at the First Division club.

Meanwhile, the Staggies will host Queen's Park in the first round of the Scottish Communities League Cup on 30th July.
