Young guy.

Right back

Played towards end of season for us. Didn't play first half of season.

Personally i like him good attitude, determined, decent player with good potential. Should do well.

Is the new ground anywhere near starting yet? It's frustrating that clubs like Benburb and Glasgow City have built grounds in the last 3 years since KRR left Adamslie. Having said that, considering Kirkintilloch waited 40 years for a bypass road to be built it's hardly surprising.

23 premier league goals last season between the three. Great trio to have and good options for the manager. I doubt anyone plays like sawyers he's unique

New boy certainly won't be back up. He has an excellent reputation . All three need to earn a starting spot even sawyers.

In my opinion Gary Carroll is totally different from Sawyers and will become a better player.  Still loads to learn but has an eye for goal.  I don't know why he wasn't wanted at Dunterlie. A very strange decision but I've no doubt he will be a success at the Rabs.

That's a powerful front line the rabs have now with the capture of Carroll

Don't agree with that at all. You can't live on last season. You earn your place again through pre season training and friendlies. That's the way it should be.Players need to know they have to earn there place again that's what a new season is all about and what keeps players motivated take that away and people just turn up in any shape and treat pre season as a time to mess about knowing they are getting picked. The comment made by someone else about sawyers being similar to carroll i thought was a strange comment from what i have seen and heard they are different types of players.  

Good to have three excellent options up front. I like what the management are doing bringing in talented hungry players who want to do well at this level.

More importantly in my humble opinion is the fact we have lost our 2 centre half. Any word on replacements?

 I can assure you they are very similar players. I was in same team as Gary for a couple year and played against wullie for same amount of time. Both good players with their back to goal n won't runaway from you.

Heard we have two offers in and waiting to hear back.
The manager and his number two have everything under control I'm sure of that.

Not what i have heard from numerous people and even if they are both similar that's can also be a good thing as a direct replacement for each other. Very happy to have all three either way.

What type of player he is from supporters who have seen him week in week out, from players he's played alongside and one manager. You opinion is different no big deal.

You at Cumbernauld next season then?
