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.

Looking at some of the amatuer players on trial with vics i think it could be a long hard season for Irvine Vics. Hope its not as always like to see them doing well.

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
