Was it not Josh Rae that was mentioned on here a while ago but signed for another club? I thought someone had mentioned him signing for an English team?

Few posters suggested that he went to Carlisle United.

Unless yous are going to stump up cash for Rae you’ve no chance

You keep talking as if you're due a massive chunk of compensation, he was with you for a year. It would be a pittance if anything.

I'd have happily had Josh Rae at us this season so that would be a good signing, looked good against us the season before last for Peterhead.

Meh shows what I know then as said just what had been told

They’re both ex Peterhead goalies so maybe someone has just got their wires crossed somewhere? Graeme Smith to sign this week IMO.

Would not be so bad but after losing Josh & Brett in the last two seasons Lenny Wilson who was number 2 was expected to get his chance but he went and signed for Brechin for the coming season so in the meantime we have no keepers signed. Jim may have to ask Paul Mathers if he still has his gloves. 😜

How much we talking about? In Yuan mind. 

I don’t know but it’s been enough to put clubs off down south so can’t see anyone in league one being able to keep it. As someone pointed out we’ve only had him a season so you wouldn’t think a great deal but it’s obviously been enough to fend of others.

Personally think it’s how we’ve kept East and Connelly as nobody has been willing to match whatever we asked for. Probably case with strapp at Morton too.

Would be a solid acquisition that, one I had hoped we would consider

Excellent keeper would be a great signing only problem is that he will cost you a compensation fee .

Would like to think we would get around 10,000 for him

Trying to remember was it Queens he came to us from, had a decent season for us and returned to Palmerston when contract up.

He came and sat on our bench on an emergency loan from you after the Covid season cancelled your season  I think

Cant see moffat coming back pretty sure he knocked us back last minute that’s why Afolabi came in 

100% would take deveney back can see he’s got potential to become a top player just never got a chance last season under Murray looked well in his short spells of the bench

If we are going to challenge for top 4, we will need a lot better players than Devenney......  Interesting that we just have a raft of trialists at training, surely we could have identified targets by now and got them signed up....

Would be really disappointed if Rae left us to go to a League 1 (side) rival tbh. Both from a selfish point of view and the fact I think he could play higher than the Championship so he'd be wasted at this level.

Again , if those targets wanted to sign. You can identify folk all you want but if they want too much money or don't want to come to us then what can we do ? You make it sound so simple,  I don't understand that logic. 

For all we know the club have tried to bring in players like Grant savoury etc but have lost out to clubs that offered more money , from higher leagues or maybe clubs that aren't currently involved in an embarrassing employment tribunal! One that may have a an impact on our budget if it doesn't go our way (not sure if theres money involved) 

Last year we acted quickly but it was for players who were a gamble , Mccabe , Frizz and Easton all came with injury risks and we're maybe not as well sought after by other clubs.
