Actual work on the Newtown Park pitch didn't start until 29th April though.

The shafts had to filled before work commenced. Apparently 3 weeks ahead of schedule plus the floodlights have been delivered. Just have to wait and hope for a long spell of good weather

FYI - the contractors at Westfield were very good at running exactly to date.

At one stage we were around 2 weeks ahead of schedule as well, but that was eaten up waiting for the specialist crew coming in to lay the carpet. They are brought in specifically for that bit, apparently that's what they do all over the country.

As they were/are booked solid, they couldn't come to us earlier, only on the initial schedule they were booked for, so we lost the two weeks on the park even though the surrounding work kept going.

Not to say that will be the same at Newton, just letting you know that was our experience given its the same contractors.

All in all, they were excellent and hit the initially scheduled end date.

Hey pieman at this early stage this is the BU preseason gossip and rumour emporium.......... let's not let assurances from virgin posters like yourself get in the way of the build up of expectations by the BU faithful.

Until a player signs and is officially announced on the BU website any names mentioned are to be treated with a pinch of salt.

It’s put to bed anyway. Already signed up for next year at least.

From the pre-season friendly thread Saturday 6th July - Irvine Meadow v the BU's.

Always remember the cup-tie there when the supporters club bus driver gave us a comprehensive tour of Irvine before arriving at the ground! :lol:

McKenzie heading west I believe .

Aye, was on the cards, not enjoying travelling.  I wonder if Nicky P will be the same?

Disappointed  to hear that but didn’t get the goals to match his work rate. 

Very quiet on the new player front.

The bus journey back was what I remember thanks to a police officer directing the supporters bus down a back road that went on, and on, and on. After about 90 minutes of a mystery tour of the moors we rejoined civilization about 20 miles from Irvine.

Too good for them, I'd say but good luck to him.  Was a great lad on and off the pitch.

Darvel seem to have a bit of cash and signed some decent players.

The chatter is that several new faces are turning up at the BU training sessions, some are coming back for further sessions and some don't return.    I expect a number of announcements in mid June when I believe the transfer window officially opens. 

In Max we trust !!
