If Kelty sign even a tenth of the players they're rumoured to be after they'll have about 70 players for this season.


Lee wallace, easton, Reilly, linton and Fash only ones I know...

Great to have Wallace back. Was excellent for us the last time around and has been pretty consistent with Arbroath.

Certainly offers something a lot different to Dowds and would be a decent partnership at this level anyway.

Danny Ashe of East Stirling signed a pre-contract a while back. One or two goalies coming in as well since Scott Christie left.

You do have to take into account players leaving as well though, four senior players announced as leaving  (Dalziel, Christie,Greig and Nimmo)another four players at least on the way out probably.

I understand it's normal for fans to get defensive about accusations of money getting thrown around but realistically, it's likely that players like Wallace, Austin, Easton or Reilly will command much higher salaries than any of the players you mentioned.  These are all players who could take their pick from almost any club in the bottom two leagues and possibly a few Championship clubs. None of the four players you mentioned would be anywhere near that position.

i appreciate players don't always take the highest offers, there are other factors. But for Kelty to take any of the players they're rumoured to be signing, they'll have to be outbidding clubs at least two levels above the league they're in, which suggests that by lowland league standards, they have got an extremely hefty budget this season.

Fair play, why not push the boat out a bit to try and get into the league for 2020, but if these players are signed, it's a bit silly to suggest Kelty aren't flashing the cash.

Edit. I think it's more likely Kelty might splash out on one or two of these players. I'd be shocked if they signed up the lot of them.

But you know it's a fact at that level, Darvel rumoured to be paying Meggatt between £500-700 per week, these fuckers seem to play under different rules than the Senior Clubs!!!

If a junior Club has a busy puggy in the Social Club it doesn't go through any books and goes straight into some players pay packet!!!

I wouldn't argue with any of that but if there are eight or nine going out, that does free up wages for players coming in. Also would think nearly all the players being going out with the exception of Christie and Greig will bring in transfer fees while most of the players coming in will be free agents.

Who would pay a transfer fee for any of those players? I would think they would more than likely just be released.

One thing with Meggatt. His contract is made up of work outside football with the football but being an add on.

That’s how kelty do it too. Get Guys Doing Door to Door sales or learning trades for conservatory converters.

Thought it'd be something like that. Not a bad wee way to do things.

Nimmo went to Bo'ness last week, Kelty were looking for £4000 allegedly when he was put up for transfer, fair to say he wont have went for nothing. If I remember correctly they extended about ten players contracts just after Ferguson  was appointed, wonder why they would do that. :)

No disrespect to the guy, but if Kelty have got someone to pay a transfer fee for Scott Dalziel, get them on the fucking Brexit team because their negotiating skills must be something else.

Nobody said how big the transfer fee would be, just that there would probably be one.

Sorry son. We can't afford to keep you on for next season. The puggy's been cleaned out twice this week.

f**k knows what Kelty have to gain if this is true, would be hilarious if Ferguson still managed to f**k it up and not sure anyone would be surprised either. From looking like such a well run club who would've eventually got themselves into a position where they had a chance to come into the league they've gone all Ballingry.

The argument of "aye but we're letting players go too" as a reason why lowland league teams are managing to sign numerous players from two and three levels above them in the pyramid is absolute nonsense. If we signed two premiership players but let Kane and Court leave that doesn't really mean that we've balanced ourselves.

Kelty are clearly spending money. Which is fine, every clubs entitled to do it if they can, but let's not pretend otherwise. You're not telling me players are going there for the love of the team or the blessed privilege of working under Barry fucking Ferguson.

Ferguson at Kelty will probably have a bigger playing budget and better players available, than when he was managing Clyde in Lg2. Wouldnt surprise me if we see a few shock results in the early rounds of the scottish this year

I'm sure he wasted a fair amount of money at Clyde as well to be fair. I'd be shcoked if they didn't have the largest budget in L2 when we won it a few years back.
