The East Stirlingshire Thread

They used to charge us for opening the pie hut and the wee bar under the stand and of course, for the privilege, all the profits were theirs. 

Graeme, who ran the bar, used to do it for nothing, great guy. When he heard Shire were getting charged £90 to open the bar, he stopped doing it.

Hopefully enough investment for a top 4 finish in the Lowland league next season lads. Get you in the Champions League at least.

Given their last 2 games are against Spartans and BSCG it's not impossible 'Shire could face a fight to finish top half.

You must say this is a marvellous season for little Civil Service Strollers. They are now joint 3rd and 1pt behind 2nd - although they themselves finish with Spartans, Kelty and Cumbernauld. If they do finish 4th lets hope it's rewarded with a place in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

You just focus on staying in the dizzy heights of League 1, can't wait to hear Edinburgh Uni run out to Steve Austins theme tune in a couple of years

Very sloppy performance from Shire last night which was punished repeatedly by a Strollers side who deserved to win. CSS also had much nicer strips than I remember them having previously, which is no doubt the driving force behind the their push up the table. 

I hope they do end up finishing in the top 4 - it's entirely within their reach, it would be a great achievement, especially if they keep out Spartans.

Good to see Strollers bringing a few supporters with them and wearing the colours. 

They've got a decent side, there, although they were gifted the goals, last night, they took advantage of what came their way. 

From our point of view, a poor performance, very slack and unfocused. Players will have to work hard if they want a contact for next season.

This time next season you might be facing the prospect of playing the Shire to stay in the league Neilly, although word on the street is even you canny face watching Stenny these days

With this significant investment from Shire I was wondering who would likely remain at Shire and who would be shifted on. Obviously Danny Ashe going to Kelty is one but who else?

Somebody better have a word in his lug hole regarding that teams record of signing players.

All will be revealed, in time. Sure they'll want to secure some signatures first, before they look at moving players on. Heard a couple of names that are, seemingly, done deals but until they're officially signed and sealed..........

I just saw that with the boy that scored the goals for Bonnyrigg. Quite a few players moved on. They are a strange club

The Usual. Same with any club no point announcing players going etc because it can all change like when we nearly lost David Grant to Bo'ness and he changed his mind and stayed with Camelon

If your running a reserve team aswel you will probably need a big squad. Would have been better just getting a 20s team for the 20s east league

When you say quite a few you mean three that have been signed since he became manager, one of which was always a temporary signing as he was always heading to Australia at the end of January.

That leaves six in and four out so far, none of the four were getting regular starts under the last manager either. Throw in another two that are up for transfer Hare and Nimmo. Hare hardly started any games either.

3 too many if you ask me. Shouldn't be signing players and shifting them a few weeks later seems silly.

When Finn Graham signed everybody knew he was leaving, everybody gained, Brechin freed up some wages, player got some game time before going to Australia that he hadn't been getting at Brechin and Kelty got a player for 3 months. As far as I can see the reason Liam Devlin left was due to problems with travelling, that's hardly Kelty's fault if its true.

I'd prefer a reserve team to a 20s team. At age 18 to 20 you should be playing adult football, learning from experienced pros, either playing alongside them or against them.

Aren't reserve leagues supposed to be on the way back?

You can play overage players in it. SO could use it for reserves

What was the SPFL U20s league for professional clubs is now a Reserve League for upto 18 full-time clubs (excluding Livingston, Ayr, Inverness and Raith)... most of their games are played on weekday afternoons and there's a sectional cup.


There is a Reserve League 2 for part-time SPFL clubs but has been shrinking and has had to consolidate on a single nationwide division. They only play 16 games over the course of the season plus some sectional cup-ties, generally on weeknights.

It currently involves Livingston, Ayr, Raith, 5 part-time clubs, and East Kilbride who got an invite last season when they needed numbers... Edinburgh City chose to stay with the Lowland/East U20s set-up after promotion and another invite wasn't taken-up, IIRC. As noted you can or play 2-3 overage players in that U20s set-up.
