I think what they meant is frightful of negative comments about them before they have even played for us which would affect confidence or something along them lines🤷🏻‍♂️

Expect 8 players named Smith and playing in emoji624.png.🤣emoji23.pngemoji85.png

Well that's one to start:)

Next four signings?

Smith signs on

Midfielder Euan Smith put pen to paper this week to join the Black and Gold for the coming season.

Euan, 25, has spent the last three seasons at Brechin City, making 50 appearances for them in League One and the Championship having started his career with Kilmarnock and having loan spells at Arbroath and Clyde.

The athletic 6’2” player is looking forward to regular football under Ian Little and we extend a warm welcome to Euan.

I think he will be an excellent signing for you personally think Brechin should have retained him, hope he does well for you

Don't think you can stop players talking, Jamie posted about Wright on the Facebook page last week. 

If he was signed last week the club have had a week to announce it.

Think there is a valid reason why this is yet to be announced Dale. His current non retention contract doesn’t expire until the end of June. He’s signed paperwork to join Berwick but can’t be rubber stamped until then.

Hopefully another signing to come today and very close to signing another player that played in league one last season.

Things looking a little more promising with the squad.

Any friendlies at Shielfield? I'm going to be going down to Berwick a lot at weekends so looking to get my football fix with the local team.

Might be down the weekend of the Ayr game so that could be fun. Never been to Shielfield so I look forward to the experience.

Ciaran Chalmers ex WW, Selkirk and Kelty last season good signing for Berwick. 

Decent signing. Strong in the tackle & good in the air. Chipped in with a few goals last season too.

Berwick Rangers chairman John Bell: Lowland League will be tough

Berwick Rangers chairman John Bell reckons his side face a tough task if they are to bounce back to the SPFL pyramid at the first time of asking, writes Craig Goldthorp. After last season’s relegation from Ladbrokes League Two – confirmed by a heavy 7-0 play-off defeat over two legs to Cove Rangers – Berwick were demoted to the Lowland League..

Bell told the Berwickshire News: “It would be remiss of me to say that we are going to march to the top of the Lowland League table. We know there are a couple of teams in the Lowland League that are throwing money around. Kelty Hearts and East Kilbride are spending twice what we can afford in terms of budget.

“We need to be a bit more careful with recruitment and get guys that are hungry to do well for Berwick. We are not going to push the boat out to compete with clubs that have much more resources.

“We want to be competitive, put out a team that can be in the top four or five all season and put smiles on faces.

“Although we only got relegated last season, the two or three seasons before that were woeful. Losing 7-0 on aggregate to Cove was a nightmare. It put the seal on what had been a fairly horrendous season. Our players were low on confidence as they had been struggling.

“Although we beat Peterhead at one point, it was a false dawn because I don’t think we won another game after that.”

Berwick’s first ever campaign in Scottish football’s fifth tier will be led by gaffer Ian Little, who has taken on the managerial reins himself having been appointed co-manager with John Brownlie following Johnny Harvey’s departure in May. It is Little’s second spell as Berwick manager in his own right, having previously bossed them between December 2011 and January 2014.

Top 4 or 5? Setting the bar high eh? Also interesting that he “doesn’t think” we won another match after beating Peterhead. Clown.

Aye that's a silly one he will know fine well that you never scored a goal after that and not even take a point.

"Following previous seasons when a demanding schedule of friendlies has taken a toll on the squad before a competitive ball is kicked, Ian Little has taken a different approach this July with a low key build-up against opposition from both sides of the border.

 Two games will be staged at Shielfield Park, with Coldstream visiting on Tuesday 2nd July for a 7.45 pm kick off, and Billingham Synthonia of the Northern League will provide the opposition on Saturday 6th July, at 3.00 pm. 

Both matches are ‘unofficial’ fixtures, and as such no admission charge will be made.

Spectators can enter the ground by the rear of the main stand and Season Tickets will be on sale from the Club Shop. "

Another chunk of income not coming our way. The Hibs fixture for example must have netted us a tidy wee sum.
