Goalkeepers

Graeme Smith
Kyle Marley

Defenders

Andy Munro
David Marsh
Chris O'Neill
Marky Munro

Midfielders

Kieron Gibbons
Thomas Halleran
Scott McLaughlin
Jamie McKernon
Alan Cook

Forwards

Mark McGuigan
Ryan Watters
 

Nobody else but probably room for 5 more? Midfield looks uninspiring unfortunately. And obviously need to get some strong support up front for McGuigan.

We'll need cover in defence, a right-sided midfielder, a bit of creativity in the middle of the park, and another striker.

You're not kidding when you say the team looks uninspiring. There's still time to bring better players but so far, this has probably been the most disappointing summer since I started supporting the club!

Tiwi Daramola is signed as well but think he is going out on loan

That's a shame, I was looking forward to seeing a bit of him next season.

Conner Duthie hasn't left the club as far as I'm aware. He hasn't signed a new deal yet but then nor has Ryan Watters. I'd be keen to keep Duthie on.

There were also a couple of young lads out on loan last season - Kyle Johnson and Aidan Kemp. No idea what has become of them but I think Johnson's contract has another year to run.

Ryan has signed on for this season

When you see that squad written down it makes for grim reading.

Definately need a couple of decent midfielders and another striker as well as defence cover.  So much for increasing our budget.  I know some of the names that were being bandied about and failed to materialise but so far less than impressed with what we have brought in.

That midfield looks really weak.  We all know that Cookie blows hot and cold and Halleron and Gibbons are hardly game changers albeit they are still quite young. Really need to get a decent playmaker in there and a decent strike partner of Mark.  On a more positive note the defence looks quite sound although needs a couple of players for cover.

Will be interesting to see what developes in the next week or so.

If you add 4 or 5 first choice picks then as a squad it's OK.  But if you add more squad fillers then it looks really weak.

I don't doubt we've increased our budget (attempting to sign Shane Sutherland on loan from Peterhead, for example) but I reckon the management team just hasn't been able to land a single target and have had to turn to players like Jamie McKernon and Scott McLaughlin instead. It's so disappointing when you're talking to guys like Robert Thomson but have to sign up jobbers from the Lowland League instead.

You’d think we will be looking at getting another couple of loans in again, only Mark Munro so far so hopefully another couple to come in and flesh out the squad. Obviously they can be hit or miss though, you’d hope for another couple of McBrearty’s rather than yer Ross’s or yer Dingwall’s

First pre-season game on Tuesday night isn’t it? Perhaps we will see a couple of trialists turn out for that? We’ll be struggling to fill a bench for it otherwise!

I wouldn’t underestimate the signing of Jamie Mckernon. He’s a cracking player who was arguably our best player alongside Ryan Mcgeever when we finished 6th in league 1 a couple years back. Hasn’t quite worked as well during his 2nd spell due to being forced to play at centre back for half a season as a result of our horrendous injury crisis in defence. Stenny have got a very good player at this level

This is good news, The last player we signed from Queen's Park (Vincent Berry) was a wee superstar so I'm looking forward to more of the same!

Why do you think this is?  Do you think that the Swann affair may be having an impact?  The money on offer from some non-league clubs must be having an impact as well.
