Andy Kirk was well known to Pars fans since he played in 11 matches against them during his five years at Hearts. He was Manager Jim McIntyre sixth signing for the 2008-09 season.
The Belfast born striker has represented his country eight times. He started his football career at Glentoran before Jim Jeffries paid £50,000 to take him to Hearts at the age of 19. He left Hearts for Boston United in summer of 2004 and then moved to Northampton Town, for a fee of £125,000 in March 2005.
Andy only joined the Yeovil Town in January 2008 on a two and a half year deal and scored four goals for them in 15 starts and 4 substitute appearances. They described him as a 'fox in the box', but his chances were limited in his favoured position as on occasions he was played as a wide man and not as the striker they signed.
Sammy McIlroy attempted to woo him to Morecambe earlier this summer but the 5'10" Irishman joined the Pars on a three year contract.
The move re-united Andy with Austin McCann whom he played with during his 134 appearances for the Jambos and then again at Boston. He describes himself as a goalscorer rather than a target man. Made his debut against Partick Thistle on Saturday 2nd August and then scored on his home debut the following week against QOS.
Left when made redundant by Interim Administrator in March 2013.
First goal for club: v Peterhead 05/08/08
