If Mitchell looks that impressive for our forward role, we’re in a world of hurt. He was the darling at Bo’ness, but was getting goals on speed and poor defending in the LL…God help us if that’s the best we can roll out most weeks. He really needs some seasoning via constant play at L1/L2 level, and I fear we’ll use him sparingly and neglect his development this year if we keep him at SP.

Did Big Dave play for QoS?

He was very quick and direct and got in behind them a couple of times. I would be worried if that was our full team out there but it wasn’t nowhere near it and we will add to the squad. Murray wasn’t that fussed about winning the game obviously given changes etc he wanted minutes for the players and to try a couple of things like young at LB and Gullan as CF.

Suprised to see a few saying young was poor, I thought the young lad did well in whats clearly not a balanced defence. the lads just turned 18 and is still very much learning the game IMO him, Arron Arnott and Kieran Mitchell look like they will have decent careers. 

 

On the game its self I thought Rovers were decent (defensive howler aside), Queens Squad seemed further advanced in both preparation and numbers. We played alot more football in the oppositions half rather than our own. Still alot of issues to be addressed. we lacked a bit of width and getting some strikes off earlier rather than overplaying it. 

Totally agree with you bud

Do you think Paterson will end up signing for Raith? From the outside it seems a bit odd that Murray’s had him on trial for a few weeks and has only used him sparingly in friendlies when he knows him pretty well from last season and must have a fair idea of whether he’s good enough to step up. We still don’t have a left back and I suspect Paterson would be pretty high up our list of options there if he’s still available.

Someone said he was at the game tonight, maybe carrying a knock 🤷🏻‍♂️

Notting odd about it. Brody lives in Kirkcaldy, Worked with the manager so he may well be training with us out of convenience. 

 

then again he may well be our starting left back this comming season... time will tell.

The fact we even have him on trial at all is odd I think considering Murray had him all last season. 

I don't think we'll sign him.

Did someone not say they were standing next to Patersons parents at the Dunbar game and they said he has a few offers on the table to mull over? Unless he's picked up a knock I'd have guessed he'd have been in the team last night as there's absolutely no way Murray can, or should, be considering Young as our first choice left back. It'll just be our luck that a local boy utilises our training facilities, gets some minutes pre season and plumps to sign for someone else.

I know someone who knows Brody and he has a couple of offers down south but if he signs in Scotland it will be with us apparently, I think it’s probably more likely Murray is seeing if dick can play cb even sometimes. The other trialist last night was Kareem isiaka who played Icelandic 2nd division last season and came through charlton youth academy

Folks, we've got a highlight reel! 

As always, totally impossible to tell anything from that, but at least there's something new to speculate about.

Ah fair enough, I knew he was from Kirkcaldy so training there made sense but it seemed strange that Murray had him on trial for so long without signing him when he already knows him pretty well. If he does have other offers to consider then that makes sense.

Yeah definitely and it would have been good to see him in action last night tbh

Might explain why he was happy to sign on…

I heard this news at Dunbar on Saturday, real kick in the stones. Good news is Brown looks more than capable at the base of midfield.

Thought he played well. Wasn't afraid to go in for a tackle anyway

Would it maybe explain why Ben Williamson was at the game last night? Maybe a short term loan, I doubt it myself probably just catching up with the boys and at a loose end.
