I see Forthbank is also one of the host venues for the women's under 19 UEFA championships next month, along with McDiarmid Park, Firhill and St Mirren.  

You lot getting any exciting ground improvements out of it?  We're getting the old dugouts ripped out and replaced with a technical area at the front of the Main Stand, hopefully resplendent with big comfy leather chairs with an embroidered St Johnstone badge on, along with some other stuff that I can't remember.

Only thing we had done was new disabled spaces in the West and East stands apart from that nothing else

The pitch has been relaid, hope it's ready in time. Our friendlies are all away games and 5 games at Forthbank in the first 15 days of the season isn't ideal.

After training yesterday, the tractor gate was open and I popped my head in. From my, totally uneducated on turf, option it’s looking really good.

It will do, but that amount of games on a new surface when its still growing will wreck it.

Lets hope it does not get the same amount of use by having 3 teams regularly play on like last season it then it might be in a better condition. Have no problem with the Uni using the ground for their Lowland League games but the fact is Motherwell reserves were using it as well.

Grass pitches can only take so much use before they start to deteriorate.

I read that season ticket holders are getting free entry to the games at Forthbank.
That happening at yours?

Was it not voted the best playing surface in Scotland

Isn’t Brechin’s pitch too small for regulations or something.? There was talk of them not getting a Licence a few years back.

Have Craig Truesdale and Grant Brennan signed for Stirling? Saw they were playing in your friendly against Raith.

Yes about 2 seasons back it was amongst one of the top playing surfaces but overuse has taken its toll, hopefully since been relaid it will rightfully claim its place as one of the best surfaces.

Show offs, like to see Glebe Park after 3 teams use it regularly in 1 season.

As has been said above, there has been no official word as yet, but KR was quoted in the Stirling Observer that he wasn’t looking to sign any other players so I suspect they are being looked at for the Development Squad rather than the First Team.
