Local rag says we have signed young Ryan McLaren, goalkeeper and Michael Holden. Am happy at that, the big keeper was excellent for us last season during his loan spell and a solid centre half to partner Youngy. Good start.

Don't necessarily agree with that based on first 45 mins of yesterday's match. I felt the Vics played some nice football and really dominated. The new players appeared confident on the ball, were happy to take the ball in close contact and always looking for a pass. I don't know who were the trialist amateurs or stranraer loan players but the consensus at halftime was it was a good start. Second half was different with all the changes. Vics were worth their 4-1 lead but Shettleston didn't panic and worked hard to get the draw. I think both teams would have been happy with the run out as the object of preseason friendlies is the opportunity to get a look at new players, try new formations or in our case start afresh. We have three more friendlies and three cup games to get it right for the league starting in August.

P.S. don't know where Shettleston are in their rebuilding or what the expectations are for them but they looked good in patches particularly large parts of the second half.  Wish them well for the season

Its pre season so hard to judge both teams never mind individual players but knowing the amatuers playing yesterday and no disrespect junior is above there level. Maybe just making up numbers with the time of year- holidays etc. I hope vics can get a good team sorted and sign some expeirenced juniors as that will be a tough league and alot of last years team have left. Wish vics all the best

Shettleston like most teams have a raft of players on holiday and will use friendlies to experiment and to look at players

 

We are going about our buisness nice and quietly and like every team working hard behind the scenes

 

We have put last seasons disappointment behind us and are are making good progress in rebuilding the team for the season ahead

 

The game itself shettleston played well and would agree large spells in the second half. It's always difficult for teams when there chopping and changing and you loose a bit of the balance  and a couple of errors creep in but it's the same for everyone

 

Good weather, 8 goals and a game played in a sporting manner with great hospitality after the game. Good luck to Irvine vics for the season ahead and we will look forward at some point in returning the gesture and welcoming you up to shettleston

What level of Juniors have you been watching? I thought vics first half was decent for a new team and first game.

Vics weren’t up 4-1 when changes were made, it was only 2-1. Vics only lost goals when the centre halves were changed for trialists who had started the second half in midfield, two trialists scored also. Positives to be taking from both halves in my opinion especially when losing the goals without an out and out centre half playing.

4/5 ex ardeer players there from last season. Team finishes 2nd bottom and then they fancy a crack in the division above. As I said the ADL thread, Money money money.

What’s happened to the big lad George and boy Wood? Are they signed up for this season? 
Don't know about big George Bonnar haven't heard whether he was staying, going or following the rest of the sheep to the Winton. Woody was supposed to be linked with a move to Darvel, but last I heard that might not be the case. Nothing on their thread as yet but they've been signing players all summer so don't know if they are interested in him. Personally I would like to see Peter stay as I think he would be an asset in our squad.

Maybe it’s because of the things behind the scenes such as screaming at young girls Ardeer ultra. It could be the fact the committee are a shambles like the unsupporting non loyal ‘ultras’ from the sides that are constantly negative about the team when they attend a match every 3 months. Sick of the nonsense that goes on in the stand at an ardeer match with the hooligans. Ardeer are going nowhere I think the boys whoever left I’m assuming Michael Holden and Jamie are part of that clan you claim are snakes are doing what’s right, theyv Been loyal for long enough

I highly doubt they are moving to Vics for money. Will be to play at a higher league and to test themselves against teams from a higher division

Aye That May be true to play at a higher level and test themselves against teams from a higher division but happily took £40 a week to finish 2nd bottom in the ADL and not even kick a ball for a season

Best of luck to them.

This reply just sums up all that is wrong at Ardeer. A club that has sat stagnant at the foot of the table with absolutely no aspirations of trying to better themselves.

More effort spent letting the locals come in for a can of beer rather than trying to build a solid football side.

I suggest the club should start looking inwards on who is running it behind the scenes. If clubs like kello and craigmark can push on and build solid teams and win promotion etc with being so rural and having a very low pool of local players to pick from, a team in the 3 towns should be doing much better.
