Bohemians have confirmed the signing of New Zealand international forward Alex Greive from St Mirren on a multi-year contract.

Greive, 25, becomes the fourth addition to Alan Reynolds’ squad this transfer window, following the arrivals of Ross Tierney, Leigh Kavanagh, and Archie Meekison.

Manager Alan Reynolds expressed his excitement about the new signing.

“I am delighted to get Alex on board. He's quick, he's sharp, and he is going to be a real handful for defenders,” Reynolds said. “Alex can play anywhere across the front three, and we have had him in training over the past couple of days. I've been very impressed by him.”

Reynolds acknowledged that Greive will need some time to adjust.

“Like everyone else who comes in during this window, he will need a little bit of time to get up to speed. But he has been away with the New Zealand squad recently, so he is in good shape,” he noted.

Greive shared his enthusiasm about joining Bohemian FC.

“I was aware that Bohs are one of the biggest clubs in Ireland, so once I heard they were looking at me, I was very interested,” he said. “I've had good conversations with the gaffer about what he wants to achieve here, and I am really looking forward to being a part of that.”

Greive also mentioned his familiarity with some of the players in the league.

“I know Nando Pijnaker and Max Mata from the New Zealand set-up, and I know from them how good the standard is in the league here. I am looking forward to the challenge,” he said.

“I know Archie from being with Dundee United last season too and Jake Carroll from when we were both in Glasgow, so there are a few familiar faces at the club already.”

Having trained with the team for the past two days, Greive concluded, “There is a great set-up here, and the manager is ambitious. I am really looking forward to getting started now.”

Pending his International Transfer Certificate, Greive will be eligible to play in Friday's SSE Airtricity Men’s Premier Division game against Sligo Rovers.
