Heard a rumour we're after John Sutton. I'd be very surprised if we managed to get him though.

John Sutton would just be another Craig Beattie or Kevin Kyle, wouldn't he?

Would avoid as I think a quicker more prolific striker is needed. Sutton will score goals but he isn't going to make the same runs as a Moore type player would.

Was looking at a few of the Premiership squad lists and noticed Killie have released Chris Johnston. He was highly rated a few years ago and was tipped to have a bright future in the game however was out for a while with a bad injury.

Think he is from Prestwick so a local lad. Worth the risk? Might just be the winger were looking for.

I would be stunned if we signed John Sutton. He's nowhere near finished and shouldn't even be entertaining an offer of part time football.

Chris Johnston would be a tremendous signing. Wouldn't have thought he'll have many full time offers given his injury history (Raith are apparently interested however) and he's exactly the type of player we're crying out for. Far, far surpasses anything we have at the moment in terms of raw ability.

See the shirts are £55 for adults and £45 for juniors! Might swerve the new top this year, that's just a ridiculous price for a replica top, never mind if it's Ayr United or Man United.

Going to be collectors item as it is going to be last one with current club crest if news reports are to be believed

Anyone have an idea what size of first team squad we're planning to have? 18 + kids?

Wouldn't be surprised to see you lot get a couple loans from us - possibly Kevin Nisbet but that would depend on who we bring in. Although, I said this last year and nothing happened.

Current Squad:


Greg Fleming (GK)
Paddy Boyle (LB)
Robbie Crawford (CM)

Mick Wardope (CM)
Craig McGuffie (u20) (AM)
Brian Gilmour (CM,AM)
Jamie Adams (CM)
Paul Cairney (CM,AM)

Ross Docherty (CM)

Michael Donald (LB,LM)
Alan Forrest (AM,CF)

 

Looking at our squad so far we're probably still going to be looking for

 

1 x GK

5 x DF

1/2 x MF (we really need wingers)

3 x CF

 

Donald, Crawford, McGuffie, Wardrope, aren't going to be knocking at the first team really, maybe Crawford, but they are decent squad players.

We're basically a full defence and full strike force short at the moment with as well as being a goalkeeper short.  I think the squad could be closer to 22/23 this year.
