I'm backing Bonnyrigg to win and to ultimately win the league. Admittedly I haven't seen Kelty yet, but certainly from what I've heard and from what ive seen of Bonnyrigg they are miles ahead of anyone we've played in the league.

I've only seen your team once this season and that was the Friday night match against BSC and your team played very well that night, although BSC made it a tough game I thought. I've seen Kelty several times and I think if they play to their best it will be a close match.

Same Bonnyrigg squad for next season.

https://www.bonnyriggrosefc.co.uk/news/contract-extensions-2516060.html

Ten players pledge future with the Rose


We are delighted to announce that we have agreed contract extensions with Alan Horne, Dean Brett, Ewan Moyes (one year), Johnny Brown, Johnny Stewart, Keiran McGachie, Kerr Young, Lee Currie, Lewis Turner and Mark Weir who have all committed to two year deals. The management team and officials have been working hard behind the scenes on these agreements but in truth they were straightforward conversations, with both the players and club keen to continue the relationship.
The above ten players have collectively spent forty nine seasons with the club and close to sixteen hundred appearances and is a massive boost to the club as we come towards the business end of the season to retain the services of the above players.
With George Hunter already under contract next season and the three under 20 players signed last month it puts us in good stead for next season and beyond.
Talks remain ongoing with other players at the club at the moment and we hope to make further announcements in due course.

Apart from the Gray brothers thats basically our starting team signed up for next year.

Great work by the club to get this announced and sorted early.

If we are lacking anything in the squad its maybe an option of a midfielder that is at home playing wide. Our full backs are excellent at getting high up the pitch and creating width but most of our midfielders look more comfortable in a central position. (minor issue)

Our squad is too small for this level, but we don’t want to bring in bodies to make up the numbers. It’s worked so far!

I could crush a grape!!

3 - 0 Kelty at halftime but match abandoned as Ferguson gets  call up from Rangers as Gerrard bottles facing Hearts in cup and resigns 

Odds on that 🤔🤔

21 players , looks like the only teams with a bigger squad are Cumbernauld colts, East Stirling and Stirling Uni.

Jamie Docherty is on that list twice. Laidlaw and Neave are from the 20's but have featured this season and are signed on for next year.

So far we've played 31 games using 22 players. Of that 22:

  • Louis Swanson has left
  • Jamie Devlin has left
  • Robbie Neave, Aaron Laidlaw and Nicky Weir have played 77 minutes between them

We're running with 17 players of which 2 are goalkeepers plus the academy boys. A body or two in wouldn't go amiss if they would add to the squad.

I know we,'ve tried to bring in another midfielder but our offers for the player have been rejected, despite him being out of contract iin the summer.

Aye fair comment but sometimes the best team don’t win on the day.

Game of two halves today, with the wind playing a part as Kelty had the better of the first half and Bonnyrigg the second. A draw would have been a fair result on the balance of play.

The quality of play wasn't the greatest as both sides went long more often than not. However there were two outstanding goals from Currie's free kick and Easton's strike from distance.

Both sides were guilty of "going down easily" with Austin the main culprit. It took him half an hour to get a touch of the ball, but he had already hit the deck four times.

Kelty's highlights should be an interesting watch, assuming that they show some of the Bonnyrigg chances and penalty claims in the second half.
