The 22-year-old Italian has impressed during his three-week pre-season spell with the Blues.

The left-sided defender quit Italian football at the end of last season after four years at Monza.

Manager Greg Abbott said Lombardy-born Bugno - son of former Tour de France runner-up and two-time world road racing champion Gianni Bugno - was "a really nice lad who has worked hard from day one."

"He's settled in quickly to the way we do things on and off the pitch.

"We really think we've got a player we can work with over the course of the next two years. He gives us something a little bit extra and it's up to him to carry on the good work and stake a claim," he added.

The deal is subject to international clearance and clearance of registration with the football authorities.

I saw him against ST Mirren and he did a great job. St Mirren are no push overs but as Baldy Blue quite rightly says, lets see how he fairs in league 1.
If he can deliver the same performance as he did on Tuesday night, then Greg,s patients and methods have paid off.

Are west Cumbrians among the least friendly in Great Britain?

Yes, I find them difficult to deal with

No, I always find them humorous and helpful

Not sure, I'm never sure how to take the marras
