    East Fife
  1. The East Fife Thread

    Season of 2 half’s, well above expectation 1st half, few injuries and we collapsed into the 2nd half. It’s crucial we don’t take the form and morale that may linger onto next season.
  2. Forfar Athletic 2018-19

    I’m involved more at Keltys 20’s level but if what I’m hearing Dylan has a chance to learn a trade going to Kelty through their sponsor same as Stephen Husband done which has resulted in Hubby being secure for later life after football. Common sense tells you Dylan would be on £200-£250pw at Forfar, add a job on minimum wage as a trainee tradesmen £400pw. Dylan will possibly be on £500 to £600 for 50 hours work per week, he will work full time 9 till 5 as well as train and play for Kelty part time. What difference is that to 90% of players in the SPFL? I may be wrong but does the Forfar goalkeeper not have the same arrangement through the Forfar chairman’s company? Players should be commended for thinking of life after football, it’s a very short career with no riches attached at part time level.
  3. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    My sons part of the setup, they are competing in the same league next season.
  4. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    I take my posts back about the accountants, those figures are staggering. Surely it’s time to cut their cloth unless they have someone covering these losses.
  5. Airdrie Bankies v Forfar

    You won’t have to worry about Easton next season, he’s off to Kelty Hearts.
  6. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Who’s to say the budget isn’t on the money, it’s bad recruitment that’s been the problem. Arbroath have cantered to the League with the rump of the best of part time players, players who are better than the full time players at Raith. It shouldn’t happen. Iv heard McGlynn is hard at work on a squad for next season trying to tie up the best players in League 1 and 2 following Arbroath model. I was told he has our striker Anton Dowds and Dylan Easton from Forfar on his radar, I’m led to believe Easton has signed a pre contract with Kelty Hearts and Big Tonks has not long signed a new contract with us.
  7. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Where’s the relevance in that? Accountants can’t pluck money out thin air. Your income will have dropped heavily being in League 1 and being accountants they will be prudent in what’s being spent so it’s not more than what’s coming in. Yes they can do income expenditure forecasts and prepare accounts etc but being an accountant doesn’t mean they have the ability to increase income.
  8. The East Fife Thread

    Would take Jamie back in a heartbeat, is he not back down south? Challenging move to join a part time club with no other job or house north of the border.
  9. Arbroath vs East Fife

    Route 1 today to Tonks & Court, play off the 2nd balls. Got a good feeling about getting something here.
  10. Arbroath vs East Fife

    Weather could be a leveller today, be chuffed with a point.
  11. The League 1 Squeaky Bum Battle

    Stranraer bottom and Brechin to go down in a play off.
  12. Arbroath vs East Fife

    Take any EF win, a win for Brechin and a draw at Dumbarton. No bad wee treble that
  13. Arbroath vs East Fife

    Big weekend ahead for the top 4, with Aggy back our chances of getting something are made easier. Never turned up our last away game at Forfar, DY won’t want a repeat performance.
