Good to see Liam Dick stay in the Championship with Raith, rather than the rumoured Falkirk. A steady, reliable player who really came on this season despite our defensive frailties. A good option in the Championship. Opens the door up for Williamson to have a real impact this season. 

Very happy to see he elected to come over to us. He looks on paper to be plenty versatile, so while he’ll likely immediately be our starting LB, where else has he played and how did he do? His interview for RaithTV certainly gives a good impression of him, and he seems to have quite enjoyed his time at Alloa. Best of luck in League One, but hope not to see you next year regardless of how well you do!

Good move for Dick and he deserves the opportunity, he'll do well for Raith and I wish him all the best.

Re Williamson, he played double figure games and didn't look out of place in a creaking defence in the Championship at 17. If rumours are right it's the centre backs the managers replacing. 

Hopefully the 3 youngsters get opportunitys, lower league and a smaller squad, will depend on whether this manager wants to give youth the chance. He got it so why shouldn't they. 

Strikers seem to be more of a priority IMO.

Does Liam Dick have  a long throw? Asking because some thought they spotted it a couple of times when we played you lot last year.

Played centre half a few times and as part of a three but mostly a left back. He was Mr Reliable and slipped under the radar a lot as he went about his business. A classic and perfect example of ‘he’s a 7/10 every week’. Really good in the air and pretty decent physically too. Thought he came onto become a more attacking threat too as his time passed. I really liked him and reckon he’ll do really well at you guys. Very likeable guy too.

Do you think Williamson will be the 1st choice left-sided defender for this season?

I think so, yeah. I reckon we’ll stick to the 3-5-2 and that’ll suit him a lot better too. Like said above, he was coming onto a game in the Championship and a drop in league with more freedom will only benefit him. The fact he’s stayed at Alloa despite interest elsewhere suggests he’s looking to continue and be a big part of the starting 11.

That was on GoRadio last week if I'm not mistaken.

It already is ' this week '.  Maybe it should be ' later this week ' ?

I agree with you if it was sorted last week why is it not announced early this week? Also I'd like to know the full official make up of the backroom staff ect. I know its not @LeodhasXD fault but the communication does need to be better from the club.

The lack of announcement is probably on me for once. I'm taking a couple weeks holiday, and unprofessionally, I'm not coming in for player's signing their contracts to get pictures.

They'll be in for training next week so if the club photographer sends his pictures on I'll get them announced.

Fair enough your absolutely due time off, surely the club must have a contingency plan for you being off.

Also do we need pictures ect just now, surely a couple of lines of text most fans would be happy just to know who we have signed and the pictures could follow in 10 days when pre season training starts.

I want a professional looking announcement at least. Got to make a big deal over any #content.

I think technically a few of them are under contract until the end of the month anyway. They can't be registered until their current contract expires or their former club cancels. We tend not to announce them until they're registered... So we're way ahead of where we normally are.

You'll need to listen to BF's radio show and see if he lets anything slip this week😂

I phoned the club a while back, offering my services to keep the OS up to date, but was advised at that time they didn't need my help.🤔🤭🤔
