Wasn’t with us all of last season. Yeah he had a job which meant he couldn’t commit. Was a big loss!

We'd have been relegated a couple of seasons ago without Batchy. He carried that midfield and his supply to TC to ensure we got enough goals was just about the only good thing we were capable of in possession.

Oh hi Gogs. Yeah regrettable but we were all young and stupid once.
 

Out of interest, in the eyes of a Kelty fan, on a scale of one to convicted sex offender involving children where does this rank?

You would have to ask a Kelty fan that. Personally I would say its a small scale offence compared to the one you are referring to, hell its even a small scale offence compared to the absolutely shocking attack on someone that was committed by a certain Linlithgow manager which led to 300  hours community service, £3000 compensation and a payout to the injured parties father of £27000.

What’s this?

Another midfielder? How many have we got now?

Smith, Smith, Collumbine, Meikle departed from midfield.

Incoming  Cairns, Dickson, Donaldson, Willis.    Willis is very offensive, Cairns is an anchor. 

4 in and 4 out midfield wise.  Incoming is considerably stronger than outgoing I reckon.

Two excellent defenders in also.

Couple more to come in yet.

Couple more ? Keeper, striker?

Squad looking really strong defence to midfield. TC and Allum have goals and assuming Coco is taking a step back I agree we are a different option striker (ie fast or a hold up player) and a keeper off having a really promising squad.

A lot of senior experience and more importantly winners medals coming into the club. Expecting a good season! 🌹

"Expecting a good season"......the standard mantra of 99% of Fitbaw fans ahead of a new season.......and then reality kicks in and the performances and results disappoint. Such is the life of the Fitbaw fan. But we wouldn't have it any other way.

Best of luck to big Deano! A really committed player who gives his all. Fights for every ball, committed in the tackle and decent in the air. Better on the ball that he gets credit for too. I noticed the tweet emphasised he's a defensive midfielder. That's where he ended up playing for us but he started off as a centre-half and I think that might be his best position or develops into his best position. Hope he does well. Same goes for David Brownlie. Always thought he looked solid enough in League 1.
