Rumours or not, I find this very worrying on a number of counts. I'm torn between thinking it's just complete rubbish and, well, actually possible. Easton and Reilly are class acts who should be going up a league (still possible!) not dropping down. Even with what would be a guaranteed starting place surely it makes no sense? Unless of course Kelty are throwing money at them, but is  that sustainable for Kelty? Well that's not really our problem and as I've mentioned before, Kelty have a long-term plan, so they should have the figures worked out. Would be nice if our Board made a statement but probably won't with playoffs coming along. Putting a wee bit of a cloud over things, though.

I wouldn't worry about that, one mad Cowdenbeath supporter claimed Kelty were paying Easton £300 then ten minutes later claimed it was nearer £500:lol:

What there's only one mad Cowden person??? :lol:

Purely hearsay but Ferguson, who was dreadful at Clyde, is purportedly on £40k, Bob Malcolm on £26k.

Jeez, their backers must have access to a shed load of money. Sustainable?

I don't blame anyone for accepting more money as I don't know their personal circumstances. Whether Kelty is a long term proposition or not remains to be seen. History suggests it's not. Shame if Reilly leaves as he has more to offer in the long term to the team than Dylan.

As I said, pure hearsay. Money definitely getting thrown at the club though.

If we lose Reilly & Easton it’ll be a nightmare, but I wouldn’t be surprised they are gonna get more money & actually be appreciated!
Fair play to the last wanting to get more money for themselves, Kelty is closer to home to travel as well, slight lack of ambition but fair play.

Calls possibly playing in the Lowland league to playing in the Championship a "slight lack of ambition"...:lol:

Aye. What kind of car has the Kelty chairman got ? Driving it was always part of the bonus plans at Raydale if I remember. Wee James Grady driving a Bentley or a Roller for half an hour or some such nonsense. Gretna rides again..

You guys are getting good at adding arms & legs on this thread! FYI he has a giant mobile conservatory that he's giving to the squad on a weekly rota :thumsup2

I've also heard Thomas Reilly and Dylan Easton are leaving Station Park to join Kelty Hearts.

The thought of a footballer as good as Reilly jobbing in the Lowland League is a crime against nature, frankly. I want to see him in the Championship.

Shades of Bobby Linn signing for Ballingry here, how long did it last there before it went tits up?

Both will be huge losses to the team.

Unbelievably some fans will probably be glad to see Easton go which is insane. He was superb again on Saturday

That will be the Ballingry Rovers that were probably getting 10% of Kelty's attendance?

Thomas, if you're reading this, come to Dumbarton and I'll literally write lovely things about you in the local paper every week.

Promise x
