  1. I believe there has been major investment but also an admission that they have got it wrong. Appointment of a new CEO and additional funding next season for an even bigger push.
  2. There's been no money at Berwick for years. It's a shame as I actually like the club but some of the figures they've posted over the years have been alarming. There has been plenty of money at Berwick over the last three years. A combined loss of 250k For that period has drained the tank and all reserves come the end of this season. The mismanagement during this period is beyond belief. Wish we had the same opportunity when we took control in 2003 with a debt of 150k and major cash flows problems.
  3. EK, we've barely got enough for a YTS squad.
  4. Both away for a fee no one has guessed right. Not earth shattering but club left with no choice but to accept Money for two players that have had their head turned by higher wages and worth nothing in a few months. Here is a prediction, neither will be anywhere the East Kilbride starting X1 next season. The money they are set to spend next season will make Kelty’s efforts this year look small.
  5. There has been a bid made but that doesn’t mean they are away.
  6. What’s annoyed many fans is the fact we’ve basically tried to carry on as if nothing has changed. Now the cupboard is bare, Reality is setting in. Do you get a Lowland League parachute payment in EOS, asking for a friend?
  7. That was our accounts ending April 2019 which was for League Two season. Also would include redundancy payments for our management team that were sacked. This years will be lower but not by that much tbh.
  8. Breakdown roughly would be as follows :- Playing Squad - 110k Management and Physio 40k Admin/Kitman/Groundstaff 40k win bonuses would also be 1k for each win but here weren’t many of them and explains some of the drop in wages. when you think paying squad get paid over 52 weeks now, the average for a 19man squad isn’t a lot. i don’t think our Lowland wages will be much less tbh with a major reduction in income, grim viewing. We are heading towards a crunch period in our future. This club deserves a little bit of luck after the last few years.
  9. You are right HJ we shouldn’t have exchanged such views like that at a football match. Apologies to fellow supporters and ES supporters. Between us, we have followed Berwick Rangers for nearly 70 years and despite the unpleasant bad mouthing there was a huge amount of passion for this club due to different views about our current plight. After a long positive chat, we shook hands, there was never going to be any blows. I would describe yesterday as a typical Berwick performance of this season. Nice possession football in non dangerous areas and again lacked a cutting edge and no real threat on goal.
  10. It looks a straight red here, studs showing and ball gone, could easily have been a leg breaker.
  11. Without trying to sound too doom and gloom, I can’t see us getting anything against Bonnyrigg. We have to be realistic, we are playing a side that have been together 2/3 year’s and know each strengths weaknesses etc. They are a strong side. For us it would be great to win but we have a very young squad that is just coming together. The goal has to be to stick by them, improve as the season develops and finish a lot stronger than we started.
  12. Great highlights as per Skell, Sean Brennan looked like he saved us from further embarrassment.
  13. Good skilful ball player, if he had the pace to match, he be easily playing in the championship. Frustrated the life out of most of us Berwick fans as we all knew there was a very good player in there somewhere. Thought he’d thrive in a good team, Edinburgh City should have taken a chance with him. Good luck to him.
  14. A new season nearly upon us and one of the toughest as we play non-league football. Ian Little looks to have done a reasonable job putting a squad together from basically scratch. Hopes : To be competitive and challenging for 4th, 5th, with a run in the Scottish Cup to boost the bank balance. Some interesting away days to look forward too and hopefully some enjoyment watching Berwick again. (If not we'll still get pished) A tough start with the League Cup group stages, expectations are very low as we aren't putting a squad together to compete with Ayr, Stranraer, Falkirk or Livi. Avoiding heavy defeats will be par. Good luck to Yano/Helicopter Haynes and the players turning out in the Black and Gold for this season.
