Stenhousemuir FC - The Warriors - The 2019/20 Thread

Recommended Posts

We've already got the best player in the division in Mark McGuigan so "unlocking" the David Hopkirk of old would be quite a thing indeed!
I take solace in the fact he's been training for a few weeks. He must be looking good and in a good place. Not just signed out the blue.

Always cringe my nuts right off listening to the “why did you want to join the Warriors” question!

I’m self-aware enough to recognise we have zero appeal to anyone over any other club other than what we can put in a players hip pocket at the end of the week, I mean COME ON!

Still, better than nothing I suppose. And I feel a little better having heard Hopkirk speak, even if it was generic-question fest

"I wanted to join the Warriors as they are a well run community club, love the project here and Colin McMenamin was my idol growing up at Celtic Nation".

Interview with Kyle Marley.




We've chosen similar questions as it's just a introduction to the player. Not got much interms of production currently, to be able to produce more in-depth content. Give it a few months and I'll look to make the interviews better.

Look forward to the more in depth content. And yes a few different questions wouldn't go amiss.

Apparently we drew 0-0 with Oakley United today.

A clean sheet against a side from the East of Scotland Football League (Conference A), you say? Ambassador, you are spoiling us!

The old results don't matter line will come out, however should really be putting a mob like that to the sword.

Would have taken a point before it so pretty happy with that.

It makes Tuesday's game with East Kilbride must win though IMO.

What’s the thoughts on Lewis McMinn? Played as a trialist for Brechin against Dundee yesterday and other than a couple of nervy moments early on and perhaps should have done better with the goal, he made some excellent saves.

If he was offered a contract I’d fully expect him to be no 2 to O’Neil.

In his two years at the club, Lewis McMinn was out back-up goalkeeper to Chris Smith and then Graeme Smith. Having checked his stats, he came into the team for a few games in 2017/18 after big Wally was injured, although I have no memory of this happening. The games he did feature in included embarrassing home losses against Cowdenbeath and Elgin City that threatened our top-four placing. He did make one league appearance last term in a 4-1 thrashing to Arbroath in January and looked poor, slow to come off his line or offer any assurance to the defenders in front of him.

In summary, I'm not sure if he's any good or not but he would most likely be signed as reserve to Paddy O'Neill.

Bit of a bore fest yesterday. Game played at a leisurely pace. We had a few trialists playing for us but I doubt we’d be pursuing any of them. Chris O’Neil looks decent and Hopkirk was bright enough if lacking a bit of sharpness. Marky Munro done ok as well. The best chances of the game fell to McMenamin after he came on as we ran out of subs. We certainly need to add to the squad.

looked like it was used as a way to see trialists.  many established players didn't play likes Smith, Mcguigen, marsh, Mclaughlin.  different team out second half. players had been in early for a community day so it wasn't really your typical preseason friendly

Cook is injured. I think McGuigan missed Saturday with an illness so could be back for tonight

McLaughlin will be back up centre midfield. If he is our starting right winger then we are in bother.

I'd reckon a starting right winger and a ball playing midfielder still to be signed to play alongside McKernon. 

Gibbons and McLaughlin will be able backup but if we are serious about winning the league it ain't good enough as two of a midfield four.
