FRENCHMAN Cedric Uras made his Falkirk debut yesterday after signing for the club until June following a recommendation from Celtic defender Bobo Balde.

The 27-year-old impressed enough during a two-week trial with the Bairns last month to earn the short-term deal after he initially trained with Balde at Parkhead to regain his fitness.

The two played together at Toulouse and Uras, released by Bastia at the end of last season, completed his move on Monday night after receiving international clearance.

The versatile defender played for 90 minutes in the Bairns' reserve-team win over Hibs and is keen to kick-start his career in the SPL.

Uras said: "I am very happy to have signed for Falkirk. Everyone has made me feel very welcome here and I am hoping to do very well with the club.

"I don't know too much about the SPL but I am learning and hopefully I can be be involved with the first team as soon as possible."

Falkirk boss John Hughes said: "It's great news we have managed to get Cedric and he comes with a high pedigree."

Meanwhile, the Bairns received a further boost yesterday when captain Steven Thomson signed an extension to his contract that will keep him at the club until May 2008.
