Renton two you missed as trialists then were signed Dougie Hill and Grant Murray. They did ok.

That's a good point, I had forgotten they played as trialists first.

And, of course, there are always strikers that McGlynn and Smudger already know very well indeed 👀👀

I'm just mischief making based on something (totally out of context) that I overheard on Saturday, and this tweet:

 

Imagine he's just up visiting family, alas.

Not sure Ayr fans will really care about Kalvin Orsi.

Yes it’s surprising re lack of a big striker especially after McGlynn saying that he specifically targeted big men up front for last season and had to go to England to get them yet this season so far the opposite. There is time though🤞

I'm not worried about it.  We don't need a big target man until the clocks go back, the parks are horrible and we have to bin our classy passing game for a few months.  Fine for now.

Yeah I’m not sure there needs to be any panic. We have almost 5 weeks until our first league game, I’m pretty confident McGlynn will have a suitable striker in that time (along with a midfielder and winger).

Keatings and Vaughan are more proven options than we had at this stage last season. Injury records are obviously a concern but we don’t need to rush, we have two relatively proven strikers at this level which is better than many others, we can take the time to get the right player in.

When we won League One we finished the first game of the season with a 16 year old Kieron Bowie and Jack Smith as our two strikers. Hell we even had Boris Melingui playing as a trialist 4 games in! McGlynn has done what he always does, signs up the bulk of the squad early doors and then looks to add 2/3 quality players later in the window, generally players that weren’t available or wouldn’t commit early in the window.

See Dan Armstrong, Steven Anderson, Jamie Gullan, John Baird in 2019/2020 season.

With Duku and Ugwu both securing full time contracts at this level after a year with us, if JMcG goes fishing again in The English Fifth or Sixth Tier, there will be some bites. We’ve shown an ability and willingness to display a player, that’s got to go down well with anyone who thinks they need a shop window to appear in.
