Not 1 ounce of truth in this, doesn’t he live way down the borders or Stranraer way? 

Stays around Dumfries

Just a bit mentioning it in the Aberdeen P&J today, Willie stays near Dumfries & was happy enough to travel to Peterhead. Training was at Forfar once a week Weds I think but it is now being changed to a Tues. He runs his own business & the change of training night does not tie in with that.

A short term deal might make sense with Easton being out for us for a bit!  Havn't seen Gibson for a few years but sure he'd do a decent job in the LL.

What's happened to Easton? Sounds serious.

The pitch wasn’t great but it wasn’t Vales fault. The council who should have cut the pitch hadn’t, and the very long grass was cut with a hand mower Friday night/Saturday morning by a committee man. Top effort, hopefully when we are back in a few weeks the grass has had a proper cut by the big mower.

Kind of intrigued by this. When I was at Whitehill we once used hand mowers but there were 4 of them on the go and I’m sure it took 2 nights. Mind you that was probably Sir Peter holding us back with his OCD 😉 The wee sit-on mower took  3-4 hours.

Went off vs Braves and Fergie said post match vs Vale he'd be out for a couple of months. Knee I think.

Good result for us tonight. Fash & Russell were good! Mckirdy off with a knock, hopefully not out for long if anything serious.

Spartans were as usual class on the ball. Kelty were clinical and took over once the third went in really. 

St Johnston scout next to me watching the young lad from Spartans. Good wee player.

Nicky Reid (number 11) by any chance? Wouldn't think he's 16. Unbelievable for his age.

I took in the game tonight. There wasn't that much between the sides in the first half, but Kelty took their chances, helped by Carswell being caught in no mans land when Austin headed the ball over him.  

The second half was all Kelty as they overpowered Spartans all over the pitch. The fifth goal was a peach from Russell.  

I think I've seen Kelty and Bonnyrigg three times each this season. Both play in a similar way and dominate the opposition, but I think Kelty has the edge in quality.

Aye that's the one.  Cracking wee player.

Went along to last night's game and it was as one sided as the scoreline suggests.

It goes without saying that Austin should be playing at a far higher level and the Spartans defence just couldn't handle him. Thought Carstairs and Russell also played well, as did the whole team to be fair.

The one save the home keeper had from a free kick in the 1st half was all he had to do all night, Spartans were fairly toothless in attack with Murrell too often isolated.

I was surprised to hear some home fans saying that Spartans were the best team they'd played in the league so far.

Finally, the build up and finish for the 5th goal was worthy of winning any game.

I would say the style Spartans have is the best. Although Colts beat us we were poor and they were dogged and played on the counter.  There were spells last night (mainly first half) where Spartans moved the ball very, very well.  Agree the scoreline was warranted in the end though

The 5th goal was a peach.  Should look great on the highlights!

At the 20s game tonight. No sign of Liam Kelly or Archie Roue. Have they left?


Liam Kelly was playing in the pre season friendlies I think. Good to see the first team coaching staff down tonight.

Both very good players so would have liked them to stay. Was a good win for the lads. Opposition was poor first half but picked up 2nd.

Archie Roue played for Dunfermline against Kelty as a trialist, unsure if he was signed after that or not.

Yeah I saw that game. Both still listed under Kelty. Sure someone will let us know soon enough 👍

Both players felt the 20s development league wasn’t their level. Archie Rouie left 2 months ago. Liam Kelly left last week. Both want to play higher up where or whatever that is.

Archie still looking for a club I believe, we got him into a 2 week trial at Dunfermline which was unsuccessful.

The 20’s is a brand new squad full of 03’s & 02’s -16-17 year olds.

Thanks Dean.  Enjoyed watching the 20s last season and those two always stuck out a bit.  Last night's team looked good and if they have a couple of years at that level then you may have a few pushing into the first team hopefully!
