Confirmed wth club yesterday. 

Strong squad with lots of depth and experience as well as some young lads. 

Deano being back is a massive boost imo.

Looking at Todays game,Yes 2 or 3 first team missing,but defence was shocking and the young lads that came on are not good enough,Degnan and brotherston seemed to pair up well

Brotherston didn't play on saturday, he wasn't there infact. It was Declan Tremble up top who grabbed the first goal.

Now that the huffing and puffing of pre-season is over, anyone with an intrest in the Star got any predictions? Last couple of season's Star have been on a bit of a slump so here's hoping they can improve this season. Actually see they are 6th in the Lowland league all time records. Think sixth will be a bit out of reach but hopefully a solid top ten position.  On paper some good signings, new manager and a big squad for a change.  Personally i think the league might divide in to 3 and Star just need to raise there game against  the "lesser" teams, always seem to give the top teams a good game. Hopefully a good competitive season and a Nineth place finish in the league.

Mind you i think i wrote something similar last year.

I'd just like to say that, as far as I can see, there's only 1 set of midweek fixtures shown on this seasons list and like last season that fixture for us is an away match at Dalbeattie Star (a venue I enjoy visiting).

Can this be coincidence or is it the work of unseen (and annoying as f*ck) forces?

Always a tough game against Dalbeattie, home or away, but as you say, it's the games that you're expected to win which are most difficult for you. Same could be said for most teams though.

We've got a mid week trip to Berwick to look forward to. Is it down to those same unseen forces Judge?

Hope you bring better weather with you this year, it was a wee bit wet last season.

Star have got the same midweek away game as last season as well, Edu/Caledonian Braves away, which was handy at Annan but now up at dogging central on a Wednesday night

24/08/2019  Edinburgh University - home

To be clear, I wasn't suggesting that it was a decision made to make it harder for EKFC...simply that it was done to deprive me of my favourite away fixture :(

Hmm, what about the LL always drawing Shire and BSC against each other on the opening day in a bid to stymie the early progress of the two Forth Valley based powerhouses in the league?

No surprise the EK fan is shutting down talk of conspiracy theories... I've heard on good authority that the oystercatcher on their badge is a high-ranking member of the Illuminati...

There are 3 midweek rounds - you're also at home v Civil Service next month and away v BSCG in October.


Cursory examination of the listing would indicate that distances are kept down:

July 30th/31st
Dalbeattie v EK, Edusport v Gretna, Vale v Gala, Berwick v Bonnyrigg
CSS v Stirling Uni, Spartans v BSCG, 'Shire v Edinburgh Uni

August 27th/28th
Gretna v Cumbernauld, Gala v 'Shire, Stirling Uni v Vale, Edinburgh Uni v Berwick
Kelty v Spartans, EK v CSS

October 1st/2nd
Edusport v Dalbeattie, Gretna v Gala, 'Shire v Vale, Spartans v Berwick
Edinburgh Uni v Bonnyrigg, Cumbernauld v CSS, BSCG v EK, Stirling Uni v Kelty



There is actually a far more extreme case: over 7 LL seasons Gala + Vale will have met on such midweeks 6 times. Dalbeattie + EK and Gala + Gretna each only 4 times. (2 at K-Park / 2 at Islecroft).

Only in 2017-18 did Gala + Vale not meet in midweek: all bar 1 by natural light at Vale.

Of course derbies on international weeks, Christmas/New Year, etc. are more frequent still.

Are you saying it removed its blazer to model for the badge?

All you had to say was conspiracy theories won’t be tolerated Jerry. I’d have taken the hint.

Are you and the Judge colluding on the posts?😉

Don’t think he’s allowed to say.
