Yeah I’d back that squad over a whole season, with a few additions to have us up near the top end of the league emoji1360.png

Kevin and Joe seem to have a good partnership and it's encouraging that dome really good quality players have committed so early which is some difference to the same time last year. Harper has already stated that he is looking at the promotion play offs as a minimum which is pretty bold.

Should be an interesting and probably open league next season. Wouldn't be surprised if the team who wins the title has a record low points total and the team that goes to the relegation play off with a record high points total. We'll see.

Nice one, best of luck. Certainly, have nothing to fear anyway. Cove will evidently be much better than Berwick but Stenny and Brechin will be worse than Clyde and Peterhead and I reckon the rest of the league will be a much of a muchness from this past season.

Jordan Stewart should be a very solid signing for you lot

Aron Lynas ex Brechin and Ryan Goodfellow ex Cowden joining Rovers

Lynas is a jinx. Relegated with every club he has played with so far (Alloa, Shire, Brechin City).

Jordan Stewart seemed to have a few injury/illness issues, and Lennon didn't play him much during the 2nd Half of the season.

However always thought we looked solid at the back when he was in the team, and think he will do well with Rovers fitness- dependant.

Stewart did have a niggling back problem which kept him out for a bit of the season but if he gets over it rovers will have a solid player 


Great signing, if he is fit.

He was a youth with us sure he was still with us the season we got relegated from the Championship and strangely signed by Alloa. Going by that stat not a good one for Rovers:lol:

Absolute bombscare. Ended up being third choice keeper and getting loaned to Berwick - probably helped Rovers stay up :lol:

Lynas is full of energy and will give you 100%. However is fairly limited and has a tendency to throw himself into rash challenges. His 2 red cards in the Championship cost us points in games we looked comfortable in.

Hope he does well at Albion, a very likeable chap.

When Stewart is fit he is a fantastic player, just keeping him off the injury table is hard. Is he stays fit hes an excellent signing for you guys. Would've kept him but I think Lennon didn't prefer him that much and his niggling back problem kept him out most of the season

Hmm, I suspected that would be the case when I seen where Goodfellow had been playing recently. Here's hoping he's only here to challenge for the starting job and not a shoo-in as No 1. We will definitely need another goalkeeper, and maybe a bit of competition will bring Goodfellow on.

The other signings seem promising though, and for the first tine in years we could actually field a team at this stage of the season; we normally shop in the July 2nd chance market.

He played 1 1st team game for us against East Fife in the Irn Bru Cup which we were winning 1-0 with little threat until he let a guy score dierct from a corner and minutes later conceded another goal from a corner.

This more or less ended his time with us as he sat on the bench and only played in the Fife Cup v Burntisland.

When McGurn was suspended a few months later we brought a 36 year old in on loan from Livi to cover for him. Strange that Harvey signed him for Berwick as he must have knew he wasn't rated by our manger as he was manager of Berwick the day we brought the loan guy in.

Possibly hasn't happened before but one of your old players, Tom Sermanni, has coached his side to a win over England. NZ beat them 1-0 in Brighton on Saturday in a warm-up for the Women's World Cup.
