    Don't know about big George Bonnar haven't heard whether he was staying, going or following the rest of the sheep to the Winton. Woody was supposed to be linked with a move to Darvel, but last I heard that might not be the case. Nothing on their thread as yet but they've been signing players all summer so don't know if they are interested in him. Personally I would like to see Peter stay as I think he would be an asset in our squad. T

    Irvine Vics - IN: Brian Mcluckie
  3. Irvine Victoria 2018/19

    Don't necessarily agree with that based on first 45 mins of yesterday's match. I felt the Vics played some nice football and really dominated. The new players appeared confident on the ball, were happy to take the ball in close contact and always looking for a pass. I don't know who were the trialist amateurs or stranraer loan players but the consensus at halftime was it was a good start. Second half was different with all the changes. Vics were worth their 4-1 lead but Shettleston didn't panic and worked hard to get the draw. I think both teams would have been happy with the run out as the object of preseason friendlies is the opportunity to get a look at new players, try new formations or in our case start afresh. We have three more friendlies and three cup games to get it right for the league starting in August. T P.S. don't know where Shettleston are in their rebuilding or what the expectations are for them but they looked good in patches particularly large parts of the second half. Wish them well for the season

    Guys, one thing for sure about this season is that it shouldn't be quite predictable as some of the previous ones. There is a lot to be excited about, with most teams bringing in new personnel, albeit some having to start afresh. I agree with DL to a point about Glencairn, and Cumbernauld, to some extent,in the fact that you survived in the old superleague for so many seasons, but just fell short of making the step up in the restructure. Whatever happens, I am looking forward to it. T

    I think you will get good odds on your own mob, as I just don't see any stick out favourites, DL. What's your own thoughts?
  6. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Again on paper looks a really hard league to call. I personally think that once the dust settles by mid point of the fixtures, that Glencairn, Larkhall, Cumbernauld and Rossvale, will be battling for the 3 promotion spots. There doesn't seem much between the rest with new management and squads in place, but could be a few surprises sprung. I don't include us in that and will be happy if we stay up as I don't see us as promotion contenders at this early stage. However doesn't stop the excitement building with new places to visit. T

    Local rag says we have signed young Ryan McLaren, goalkeeper and Michael Holden. Am happy at that, the big keeper was excellent for us last season during his loan spell and a solid centre half to partner Youngy. Good start. T
  8. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Good signing for you. Am disappointed we didn't go for him as he is an Irvine boy who knows the club well. Will do a job for you no doubt. T

    All the best Kenny, just sorry you're not with us this season. No doubt if we have no game, we will pop along to see the Vics old boys in action for the Winton! T

    What's happening signings wise? Do we have a team for the local five a side league yet? T
  11. Cambuslang Rangers 2018-19

    Any reasons given for this? Always look forward to this game as I catch up with an old work colleague. T
  12. West Region summer transfer thread 2018

    They should be followed soon by your old pal Longair and Lamby the keeper.
  13. Irvine Victoria 2018/19

    Don't necessarily agree that it could be a disaster of a season. New management team maybe didn't fancy the bulk of the players from last season and could have others lined up. If that is the case then fine but agree we should be getting updates. It is common knowledge locally who appear to have left, but there are some who stayed and it would be good if the club came out with a statement confirming this to reassure supporters. They are never slow to post on Twitter during the season and aren't slow at asking you for your money for season tickets, sponsorship and the like. And before I get a snidey response I don't begrudge them my cash. There is nothing to be secretive about. Sent from my Moto G (5) using Pie and Bovril mobile app

    So we don't have any of last season's squad committed to this year? Also if you are keeping your cards close to your chest with potential new signings, you can at least tell us who have left the club! T Sent from my Moto G (5) using Pie and Bovril mobile app

    I see that Winton have announced that Mears, Harpo and Chris Wilson have signed for them. Any chance the Vics could keep their fans informed of any player movements, even something as simple as who re-signed for next season as a starting point?
