Rossvale departures

Big blow for them losing most of best players.  

Feel a bit for them as they will only ever be used as a stepping stone as a club by players and management somewhere to learn with no pressure from fans etc. 

Can see a few those players popping up at juniors in the wosfl or outright junior leagues.

Always liked the boy slattery , mcnab tall lad at back is decent. 

They'd be my pick of the bunch. 

Take it the vale have lost a 'diehard' supporter now the lad mcgonigal has left. 😄

Decent player though bit overrated imo. 

Is the Tall lad at the back not Matt Niven ??

So basically no longer a bishopbriggs club for adult over 18 football. 

Junior club in west of scotland playing out of govan and under 20 team. 

Briggs was never a goer for a junior or senior club.

You need roots in a community spanning generations of adult football. 

Rossvale will forever be type cast so to speak as youth football team(s)

what 'outright junior leagues' would want Glasgow players? ...

Why was Jon Connolly the Fauldhouse manager? Because of his contacts locally in West Lothian or to bring in Glasgow area players to help them win east region trophies? You do realise that it's only around a 30 minutes drive from the city centre in Glasgow to somewhere like Whitburn or Armadale? People are taking this anti-junior thing too far sometimes. The east region south section is clearly in a death spiral now but that doesn't mean that they won't potentially want to sign former Rossvale players.

And therefore it is all down to the manager.

Of course I realise how far away these wee timewarps are from civilisation. However they are far more likely to recruit from the Falkirk / Edinubrgh area. The Rossvale players however are unlikely to want to jump into that league - why would they? First two players announced to have signed up elsewhere have stayed in Rossvale's division.

Things are shaping up nicely for next season. Exciting season ahead and the club will continue in their great journey.

I would very much doubt that any of the players leaving Rossvale will be playing in a lower division than Rossvale are currently tbh

"wee time warps far away from civilisation"?!  From a patronising big city slicker.

haha have you driven through Armadale or Whitburn in July? And I live in the 3rd emptiest authority in the coutnry so hardly a 'big city slicker'. Would you like some sauce for the chip on your shoulder?

Listened to Gormz podcast and also read his newspaper interview.... He seems confident that the players coming in are an upgrade on the players that are leaving.... 
A big changeover of playing staff at Rossvale, just about the whole team. They will be doing very well if it's an upgrade on last season as they did very well. You'd expect the manager to be talking positively about the squad he's put together.
