The two guys on the right had their faces blurred when it was first posted ūü§Ē

Edit: Looks like one of them is Sam Ramsbottom 

Considering they both don't have shorts on i'd imagine they are both goalkeepers.

Rohan Ferguson possibly.

Doesn't look like Ferguson but I could be wrong. Does look like Ramsbottom though, surely we've had more than enough of ex Morton players.

That does look like Ramsbottom. Oh ya fucker.

I know supporters of teams who players previously played for often exaggerate how bad a player is, but he is genuinely without doubt the worst goal keeper I have ever seen at Morton and pretty much in professional football. It's no exaggeration to say he was directly at fault for at least one goal a game, often 2.  Thankfully Hopkin realised what a clusterfuck of a signing he was and got Danny Rogers on loan to replace Ramsbottom. 

I hope you sign him.

Sometimes I think I'm fairly knowledgeable about Scottish football and then I'm reminded there are people out there who can recognise Sam Ramsbottom from distance in training gear¬†ūüėā

The other one looks a bit like Reece Willison who was Airdrie’s third choice keeper last season. He only played a couple of games but generally looked quite shaky, would do fine as a cheap backup though.

Hes not going to play anyway so as long as he's cheap as feck that's the main thing.

Even if he did your only looking for this guy to play the rest of that game.  A loan goalie would then be brought in to start games.   Your just looking for a cheap body that can do that and play in the training games.

Yeah as much as we just need a cheap back up to sit on the bench it would be safer to get someone who's actually capable of playing in goals as if the worst does happen and Robbie gets injured we'd be humped.

We had Graeme bloody Bowman on the bench as a trialist last season. 
 

For any good training session you would want 2 keepers so not reading much into having people in for the first training session.

Again your only requirement is for the guy to play the rest of that match. You then bring in a new no 1 as an emergency loan. The chances of that happening though are too low to pay a proper experienced goalie to sit on the bench so you have a young cheap body in case of emergency and to play in goals at training.

Trust us, I know Fasan's bad but he looks like Buffon in comparison to Ramsbottom. If you're wanting to sign someone as cheap cover you'd be better picking up some unknown teenager from the East of Scotland League or Ryan Stevenson, he's genuinely the worst goalkeeper I've ever seen.

Seriously Ramsbottom?  He shouldn't be playing professional football. Nice lad but he's just not ready for any level of professional football.

The boys turned up at the first day of training. If hes as honking as you say then he'll soon be on his way. There's loads of cheap alternatives out there.  He's not signed anything.

I hope the club has been making sure not to follow up on any enquiries regarding this chap:

Then again, we've been scammed by numerous alleged footballers so we won't have learned our lesson

Probably one of the quickest and most boring games of spot the trialist ever. We not got any big steamroller centre halves in on trial?

All a bit harsh on Ramsbottom.

He is a big, good shot stopper - sign him.

As long as you don't mind every save being palmed to the opposition striker in the centre of the goalmouth to finish with ease, from literally anywhere he makes the save.

He will talk up his stats for 'saves per game' completely neglecting that every save causes a goal.
