Missing the Fitbaw so much I would happily take my chances watching the BU's playing any team in the lion enclosure at Blair Drummond Safari Park. #SadButTrue

FFS DD walk to the fridge and get a beer. Just think it will all be in the dim and distant past when “a real Saturday comes”. Chill. As Bob says ‘eveythin gonna be alright’

Aye but were they midweek 200+ mile round trips in winter as we found out a few times. 😉

Dumfries and Galloway are fantastic trips on a Saturday and probably the best on the LL circuit but we just got unlucky a few times and had to suffer it when other Saturday's might've been available. 

Gretna s wee bar inside the ground is superb and if you there early enough you can catch the early tv match in the club (not associated wi GFC08)  in the car park. 

Dalbeattie is a cracking town for a few refreshments before the game as well. 👍

 

I’m down D&G way every so often with work so a midweek game down that way in the winter would possibly work out alright. Plus I’d have all my warm and waterproof work gear in the van if the weather wasn’t great!

Ach, in my younger days I've been from Edinburgh to Watford for a midweek testimonial, so no big deal.  With a fixture list, you can plan workdays off, if need be.

Thanks for the info on other grounds, always good to know!

Just having a look at the squad and maybe get confirmation on the current situation.

GK - Murphy, Adamson (still with us?)

DEF - Jacobs, Snowdon, McGregor, Hunter, Campbell, Turnbull

MID - Gemmell, Morgan, Comrie, Nimmo, Grant, Locke, Faulds

FOR - Donnelly, Anderson, Ritchie, Stevenson, Keast, Miller, 
 

Anyone not signed so far ? Assuming Miller & Locke have put pen to paper.

Boheesian,

Max said in the Journal last week that they were signing a player (he was referring to Nick Locke) and "that's us got our squad (of 21 players) built." 

You have listed 21 players above so it appears they have all signed up for the season.

Knew that a good number had put pen to paper extending contracts during the latter part of the season but wasn’t sure about Adamson. 
Stopped buying the local paper months ago.

Greetings, I wanted to ask you about a former player of the club, Jim Sinnet, I think he was a forward, but I don't know if he would be a central forward or what type of forward he was ...does anyone remember him?

Jim had a relatively short playing career at Newtown but he made a huge impact.  Signed in the summer of 1983 from Armadale Thistle.  The 5 ft 10 centre forward was very skilful.  He made his debut at home to the wee rose and scored in a 2-2 draw.  In fact he developed a penchant for scoring against them, scoring 10 in 10 competitive games in two seasons.

He scored 30 goals in his first season, including 5 on the way to lifting the Junior Cup.  He also scored the winner in that years Brown Cup Final.  The following season he hit another 20 goals, including a double over the wee rose in the East of Scotland Cup Final.  Stenhousemuir came a calling at the season's end.
