The seaside leagues make a pleasant change of scenery as well, until you're stuck there.

You're never going to return though champ. It's the end of a long and utterly pointless cul-de-sac for you.

Time will tell.  We will just enjoy the journey .  

If by pointless you mean continually punching above our weight for the best part of 40 years and managing to be relevant enough to remain living in your head then I will happily accept that. 

Keep dropping in for a chat though. Our door is always open .

Were you "punching above your weight" by recording zero wins and the worst points total of all time in the second tier - a mere handful of years before a similar Angus club mounted a title challenge at the same level? Absolutely not.

Were you "punching above your weight" by recording three consecutive relegations despite the pandemic bailing you out? Absolutely not. 

You were stinking the place out. 

The good news is that you'll now never be back, and so your revisionism about plucky wee Brechin's exploits can be saved for your endless series of bus trips to Wick. 

Thanks for playing anyway.

Aye that implosion was as embarrassing for us  , but as incredible as it sounds , the club has come out stronger after a complete overhaul . A new committee and board of directors , a very successful supporter share issue , a rise in season ticket sales, bigger home crowds and a whole new community input  has put us in a far better position to move forward. 

Far from being defeated I think you will find that the fighting spirit is still there.

Welcome to the Highland League as they say, its not all plain sailing and thinking you will just turn up and win is a bad mentality to have, like your management team. Teams go to the death here and many a winner, equalizer is scored in the 95th minute ! Your down fall is your own doing, the Broch game at home a great example, you should have been up 6-0 ht. 

Haven't you got one more year at it before the backers / sponsors pull out ? Better get yer skates on or you will be in here forever !!

I love all the made up shite. No single backer. Sponsors signed up to 3 years..... seems like if you dont know anything make it up.

Would this be the ‘similar Angus club’ from a town 4 times the population of Brechin?

Would that be the Brechin that has a population 45% greater than long-term Premiership members Dingwall?

Possibly not a fair comparison as the Dingwall side have supporters from all over Ross-shire and Brechin has three SPFL clubs in its county to draw potential support away from them.

That’s probably the worst comparison you could use.

Not even sure if you are being serious with this comparison. God help you if you are.

Brechin's blazers also dinnae have pockets as deep as Uncle Roy's

And what happens when the Uncle Roys of the world lose interest or pass away? You only have to look at Gretna to see what happens.

They drop to their natural level; Championship/League One.  County won't do a Gretna.

Zander Clarke out injured for St Johnstone now is there a chance they could recall Jack? I know they have Ross sinclair but they might still need him back. To be fair the few games I've seen Ian Ross play hes looked like a pretty decent keeper so wouldn't be too worried if we did loose Jack

After last Saturday I think it is safe to assume Jack will be staying .🙈
