@sportmad72 posted: “5 signings hopefully they’re what we need. Only time will tell #SAFC I’m quite happy but it’s more the wonder of how they will play”

@SAFCFANSVIEW added: “The fact Semenyo is in the squad for tomorrow is also a great bit of work done behind the scenes”

@Ian_Crow3 said: “Pace and Power, what we need going forward and could easily slot in CAM areas to rest Gooch or Maguire and be an impact from bench. Feel he's a major difference maker here. Now hoping hes not the last in.”@LDoubleE_87 tweeted: “Solid window that - let’s finish the business now and get back to where we belong”

@RamseySAFC posted: “If I'm honest I still think we maybe a goalscorer short.”

@james82safc said: “Hats off to Donald he's played a blinder in this transfer window”

@carlrutherford commented: “You never know with signings, especially at this level. However we look to of added some good youth, pace and legs to the squad. Good window. Shame about McNulty as I felt he had more to give”
