Blues have signed Australian international Shane Lowry until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old was a free agent having left Leyton Orient last month and being on trial at Blues.
Preferred as a left-back he can also play in the middle. He featured in the friendlies against Kidderminster Harriers and Benfica B, scoring the equaliser in the Harriers game.
On July 10, after the Brisbane Road outfit had played Braintree Town, manager Hendon revealed that Lowry could leave the club on a free transfer as he had a relegation clause in his contract.
The Orient boss was relaxed about the situation because he assumed the former Aston Villa trainee would be gone by the start of the League Two campaign. This news will be welcomed from Blues fans as they feel Rowett’s squad is light at the back with the departure of Canada international David Edgar.
As a teenager he earned a contract at Aston Villa, but after three years he joined Millwall on a permanent deal. In more recent times he has played for Leyton Orient where he featured 42 times for the O’s.
Here’s Lowry speaking last year before signing for them:
