Inverness Caledonian Thistle played three trialists in their latest friendly against Raith Rovers which ended in a 1-0 defeat in Kirkcaldy.

Caley Thistle continued their preparations for the new season at Stark’s Park, with their League Cup group stage campaign set to start at Annan Athletic next weekend.

Manager Duncan Ferguson previously stated that after the signing of goalkeeper Jack Newman from Dundee United on loan, along with striker Cameron Ferguson, it was unlikely any further signings would be added to the squad due to the current financial situation at the club.

However, Inverness fielded three trialists in the friendly at Stark’s Park on Saturday afternoon.

It is believed one of the trialists was former Ross County midfielder Adam Mackinnon. The 21-year-old, who was on loan at Arbroath last season, was released from Dingwall at the end of the last campaign.

It has also believed another of the trialists was former Clachnacuddin youth player Calum Haspell, who was at Queen’s Park last season.

The full-back joined Queen’s Park from Highland League club Rothes in January.

Haspell was born in Roskilde in Denmark and starred for Clachnacuddin under-20’s before heading to Salem University in America in 2020. After a year in the States, he moved to the City of Malaga Academy and during his time there, he progressed to their senior side CD Almuñécar City.

The third trialists is reported to be full-back Flynn Duffy, who was on loan at Peterhead from Dundee United last season.

Inverness play their final friendly at Brora Rangers on Tuesday night before the League Cup group stages when they face Annan Athletic in the Premier Cup group stages on Saturday.

Raith Rovers scored the winner two minutes from time when a trialist scored in the 88th minute.
