The 21-year-old bagged a hat-trick on debut for the Scottish League One side on route to a 3-2 win over Ayr United.
In doing so he already surpassed his total number of goals from a short spell at Hartlepool in the Vanarama Conference in England, where he managed to find the net twice in eight appearances.
Next up for them is a trip to Kilmarnock in the Scottish league cup.
