More moves to prepare for the start of pre-season at the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium
Livingston's defence will have a different look next season with the addition of defenders Mike Mampuya and Curtis Jones. Full back Mampuya is linking up with Lions assistant manager Mark Burchill for a second time after they were team-mates at Cypriot club Enosis Neon Paralimni. Mampuya played in Belgium and Holland with Lierse, VVV Venlo and Helmond Sport and, despite being born in Belgium, earned one cap with the Democratic Republic of Congo in a friendly against Gabon in 2011.Burchill said: "Mike is a pacy full back and to attract him to Livingston is fantastic. He will give us an additional threat going forward but he can defend as well. He is a winner and has great experience which will benefit the youngsters in our squad." Jones has played in Scotland before when he spent two years in the Youth Programme at Celtic and helped them win the SFA Youth Cup in 2012 in an 8-0 final win over Queen of the South. Prior to his time at Parkhead, central defender Manchester born Jones was with Stockport County. He was released a year ago and spent a season working with former Celtic Youth manager Willie McStay at Bristol City. Burchill went on: "Curtis is looking to play in a first team environment and he has a chance to do that here. He faces competition from Simon Mensing, Coll Donaldson and Callum Fordyce to do that and that is a good thing. Curtis is comfortable with the ball at his feet and also has a strong physical presence and we see a lot of potential in him."
