The 19-year-old academy graduate made his first-team debut against St MIrren in September and will look for regular game-time with the Lowland League title hopefuls to continue his development.

Shanley knows the league well, having spent time on loan at Civil Service Strollers last season.

Easter Road Sporting Director Graeme Mathie said: "This is a great opportunity for Ryan to play in an ambitious, attack-minded team.

"I've no doubt he'll benefit playing alongside a lot of good professionals under the direction of Barry Ferguson and his staff."

Shanley added: "I trained with Kelty a few months ago and was impressed by the high standards on and off the pitch.

"Staying with Hibs gave me the chance to work with the first team and make my debut but I know I have to work hard and play regularly to be at my best and push on."
