  1. Summer Transfer Thread

    One more at Elgin that's not yet on their list - http://www.elgincity.net/?p=9853

    Re wide players, assuming that Ali Sutherland will be away. Gav has never seemed to like him & he got hardly any game time after returning from his loan spell at Rothes, where he definitely looked a level above when he settled in there, including chipping in with four goals in 13 games, which isn't a bad return for a wide midfielder / winger.

    Not sure that there will be much in the way of loan options from ICT, given that they have such a thin First Team squad, & beyond that they're putting all their eggs in the basket of their current U18s side, which they're of course trying to get into the Highland League. Even if they don't succeed in that, then wouldn't like to think that their youngsters would be brought in & played ahead of Elgin's own youngsters, given that the boys that have been given contracts for the coming season are not hugely different in ability to the ICT lads.
  4. The Last Expansion...

    They can & have & do, but Robertson is moaning that the Development Loan system doesn't work for them, so hence pursuing this option

    Gonna be a whole load of defenders in the squad!

    I guess that the logic may be that if they can get more decent local / Academy lads through, then they'll be cheaper in terms of both wages & travel expenses, & that could in turn free up some budget for some 'big name' / 'marquee' signings that could add that additional quality / X factor
  8. Elgin v Berwick

    Would imagine that they'd see it as the last opportunity for a few extra quid in the shape of a win bonus if nothing else

    Perhaps a taste of the future for Elgin yesterday with 16 year old Owen Loveland getting his first league goal after scoring in the cup earlier in the season, & another academy youngster Lee Scott getting his debut, which I believe is the sixth by an academy player this season. Hopefully be seeing a lot more of the youngsters next season.

    Already got five out on loan at HL sides this season that have played anywhere up to 30 times for their loan clubs. Think it's six that have already made First Team debuts earlier in the season, so certainly some of those have been 'blooded' to see if they're ready for the next step. Would expect that over the next 2-3 years there will be a good number coming through....fingers crossed!

    Some good youngsters coming up from the U20s, but reaping the benefits of the Club's enhanced youth policy may be a slightly more medium-to-longer term project, as opposed to seeing immediate benefits next season. That said, if they're good enough then they're old enough, so hopefully that proves to be the case & they get some decent game time & opportunity to show what they can do.
