Would take him in a heartbeat as I think we definitely need another centre half but the question becomes whether he’d be willing to relocate to the central belt. Montrose are probably more likely to get him (if they have an interest that is) than us for that reason alone.
I'm sure it was posted on the Cove forum that he's actually from Motherwell. I think he'd be a pretty good and solid defender for us but the question is, would McCabe want him? We are generally set in our ways in playing out from the back and I'm not sure how good he is at that. However, it would create a better balance in defence if you have one ball playing centre back in Dycey and one out and out defender like him.

Wonder where Aggie will end up now he's left Raith?

 

There's talk of Stevie Crawford going to Dundee United as Liam Fox's assistant, so Agnew as the new East Fife manager makes sense. If he does end up there then it'll be interesting to see how he gets on. It's hard to judge these things but I certainly feel a lot more confident with McCabe than I would have with Agnew.

He’s part time might have a part to play in it

That's what I'm thinking. You can affect how we play but you can't affect how other teams play - and a lot of the teams in this league just shell it. 

He did a similar role as you say for Cove - just domed everything while the midfield and attackers did their thing up the other end of the pitch.

Saddle up guys and gals,   for an exciting couple of days,   The well documented loanee window closes on Friday at midnight,  surely we will land a wee gem at the last minute to boost our 18 man squad,  I hope and expect this too happen...

 

You never know they might end up modelling this season's new home kit which is getting launched this week (apparently)......

It will be an interesting team selection tomorrow.

Henderson, Ballantyne, Fordyce, Frizzell and Smith are the only definite starters i can see although personally McCabe would also start for me but not sure he will.

                                                Henderson

                            Ballantyne Watson Fordyce ATS

                                                 McCabe

                                    Frizzell Devenny Telfer

                                            Smith McGill

Hopefully the goalie understands that sometimes you need to hoof it after his horror show against Alloa.

Agree with your team selection, although I think he might play Ballantyne LB and Watson RB with Dycey and ATS in the centre.

Yeh whilst Ballantyne could play there and has a great attitude, i love a leftie in that position. Deveney probably suits our system better but i'm still unsure of him.

Me too but I think I'd rather Ballantyne in at left back than Deveney, he's still young and raw but based on what we've seen on him so far i don't think we'll win a league with him playing every week as harsh as that sounds.

Deveney not the only problem,

Not a lady myself so I suppose it’s not really my place to decide what’s acceptable and what isn’t but the club’s “Lady’s Day” in hospitality comes across as a bit outdated, particularly the awards for best dressed presented by the man of the match. I think it’s a good thing to try to encourage women to come to the games, and I think the heart’s in the right place, but not convinced this event is the best way. Just seems a bit condescending with the focus on prosecco and dresses. Also seems a bit overpriced at £72 but I’ve never attended hospitality so I don’t know how good it is in terms of value.

Not offended by it, but I won’t be paying £72 to be judged on my frock and can’t abide prosecco. Well intentioned, but better ways to open the door up for female fans to get to know each other. Hope those that do go enjoy themselves - but it’s a no from me. Defo outdated IMO.

I know it's up to the management  and its maybe no important but it would be nice to see all the  players photos on the official site, it's maybe like signing players it's takes a while,

They’ll be waiting for the new kit before that.

Aye you could be right, no sign of the pen, if manager is on the sidelines again, seems  daft as he is needed on the pitch, not be easy  on sat, Kelty have some good players,

I count 19 but that includes, an injured goalie, a player/goalie coach, a player/assistant manager and of course Rhys. With the loan window closing today then Injuries, which are guaranteed, could be our biggest issue.

Yes i'm aware that we can sign out of contract players but i would imagine that would now be a tiny market.
