Currently 3-1 to Dunfermline in the reserve team fixture, just incase anyone was wondering about the QoTS lineup.

Robby McCrorie has been called up to the Scotland U21 squad for their games on 5th and 10th September.


Let’s just hope Jack Leighfield is fit for the Clyde game

Who is he? Ex Livi and Stirling by any chance?

Surely Semple should have been playing in this reserve game to get match fit? 

The past 2 games he has been off the pace and needs too lose a hell of a weight.

If he’s keeping a clean sheet while he’s “off the pace” I look forward to seeing how good he is when he’s fully fit

I don't see the point in him playing in a game like that tbh.

I absolutely do, especially with there being no 1st team game at the weekend.

Isn't this kind of situation the purpose of It being a no age restriction reserve league instead of the U20s that went before it? The young guys that make up the reserves would benefit from playing alongside a more experienced player too.

There are only 3 CBs in the squad. Would be very silly to risk injury and leave the first team short.

Ok I see that point. Overall though, not talking about Semple specifically now, I do think the reserve games should be used to give minutes to guys who haven't been getting much (or any) 1st team action. No point in someone staying on the bench 3 or 4 games in a row then not being match fit if he's needing to step in to cover injury or suspension.

In a normal world I’d agree but don’t think manager can afford to run risk of injuries at moment

With such a small squad and considering the lad has missed so much pre season work due to an injury in a friendly at East Fife, I'm not surprised he is not with the reserves. Regarding playing experienced players in the reserves I had experience with a club with a large squad who did just that and some of the players did not give a dam although a few of the good pros did put in a shift and it was good for the youngsters. The reserves should not only act as a feeder for the first team but also as a competitive competition and playing down can be to the detriment of the reserves. It's a fine line but you need to trust the manager to make these decisions as it is the first team results that really matter with progression next.

I saw a trialist nabbed a hattrick for us against Threave yesterday! I can only guess that will have left a good impression! Anyone any clue who it is?

Was a trialist with intention for the reserves/youth team I’d imagine
