That's a good signing for ICT. Like a few other young central defenders we have had in recent times (McCart being another), Deas came on playing next to Andy Graham. When Andy got injured he took on more responsibility himself and was a really good defender for us. Still a work in progress to an extent but he should be aiming with more experience at a career in the top flight. I'm sure he'll do well for ICT and getting him signed for 3 years is excellent business.

Is he related to Paul Deas? He’s young enough to be his son.

We've signed Robbie Deas on a 3 year deal. What did you guys think of him when he was on loan last season?

was a bit raw at first but came on big time later in the season, you could see his confidence increase every game, good signing and thats the second loan full back we have seen go your way (McCart ) .

Going to embed the betfred cup stream in https://alloaathleticfootball.club/ if anyone wants to watch it on there.
Near future the new website replace the old one at alloaathletic.co.uk.


Good job with the website, much better.

Decent draw for use in the betfred. Can see us having a decent chance of qualifying.
Can’t wait for the debate if season ticket count for these games if fans are back in attendance

I like the Draw, Arbroath have ended up with another repeat of the usual suspects, glad we avoided that for a fresh set of teams, will be interesting to see if we hit the ground running as we will need to to do well in the league .

Same, I'm glad we didn't end up in the Group G of death. I wonder if it's a first that the entire group is playing on astro.

Yeah an Airdrie fan posted something about that, they also seem pretty optomistic about progressing ! i hope we tell it differently,

Again plugging the new website as the old one is down.

Been adding to the archive... 2013/14. I wonder what would have happened had Paul Hartley not have had his head turned. The team was flying up until Christmas.

It's on my list to add all the match reports. Only 2019/20 done so far but that's roughly the format they're going to be in.

Player match data to get added too but we'll see how far I can get. It's unfortunate Kevin Cawley has such a long history to get all his matches in!

We're rumoured to have signed Connor Shields, who spent a bit of time on loan with you guys. What like?

We played him predominantly as a winger... Which was because he was an excellent crosser. But by no means was he a winger but in general I liked him and think it was a missed opportunity that he didn't play up front more because his stint at Albion Rovers was clear that he had goals galore in him.

I didn't feel he did enough when he did play up front to justify a regular game there. Indeed I was a little surprised that his loan was extended at New Year after he had been in and out of the team. But to be fair, he ended up doing a decent job out wide as the season progressed. Direct, strong and fairly quick, plus he could put a good ball in as LeodhasXD said. I felt Kevin Cawley was the better all round footballer when the two of them were competing for that role, but that Shields was a good alternative due to the attributes mentioned above. 

He doesn't seem to have really kicked on since that breakthrough season at Albion Rovers and is at a stage now where he really needs to. There is certainly a player there if he can manage to put it all together. Worth a gamble for QoS I'd say and playing up beside Dobbie would probably be good for him (and easier than leading the line for Alloa).

His goal at Ayr kept us up , i for one am grateful to him.

Ray Grant joins from Clyde, from what I can gather a good signing in midfield. Seemed highly rated and Peter's laddie!

Was really tempted to put joining the family business but being a coaches son is already bad enough😂
