Kelty directly may not be.

But the deal of:
- a big signing bonus
- a full time job with conservatory converters
- his weekly wages from kelty

Probably will add up to a full package rate of £750 a week

I thought the Falkirk thread was the place to go for daft stuff.

The above may be a far more realistic view! Very different from Kelty paying £750 directly.

No, just someone who knows the club well and several of the guys that run it.

Totally however clear to see why they can sign players of his calibre.

So full time job-part time football at a lower grade v full time football at United at higher level?

If the Dundee Utd offer is true I wouldn't imagine he would get a fortune weekly there but it would be decent. Depends what his priorities are, he may be thinking longer term after football job wise.  Is he travelling from further away to get to Forfar? Sure someone mentioned that previously.

Dundee United were definitely not looking at him he wouldn’t even warm their bench

Yes if the owner of Forfar Albion is the only reason you got the job on the rig as he owns the oil company...

Yes. Sure Forfar did a lot of this via Ramsay Ladders in the 80s. McPhee? Farningham ? Neil Watt tied in with Angus Marts ? Memory fading a bit but sure at least a bit of this is true.

Foxy was the one and only Forfar player working for Graham's at the same time as far as I know. Might be wrong though.

I’m involved more at Keltys 20’s level but if what I’m hearing Dylan has a chance to learn a trade going to Kelty through their sponsor same as Stephen Husband done which has resulted in Hubby being secure for later life after football.

Common sense tells you Dylan would be on £200-£250pw at Forfar, add a job on minimum wage as a trainee tradesmen £400pw. Dylan will possibly be on £500 to £600 for 50 hours work per week, he will work full time 9 till 5 as well as train and play for Kelty part time. What difference is that to 90% of players in the SPFL?

I may be wrong but does the Forfar goalkeeper not have the same arrangement through the Forfar chairman’s company?

Players should be commended for thinking of life after football, it’s a very short career with no riches attached at part time level.
