They’re good players undoubtedly and would take a fair bit of replacing at Meadow Park. Threave certainly have a pull mind you as we’ve seen throughout the years   

Threave rovers have signed Graham Wright today. Looks like Jake Gemmell’s replacement so the Saints move must be correct. Given what I’ve seen of the two, Gemmell is the superior goalkeeper with more potential but only time will tell.

Gemmell is miles in front of Wright .

In fairness both of them are top quality. Jake probably has the potential to be better but Wright has proved to be top quality for a long period of time.  Not much between them. What Jake offers in potential and ability . Wright probably matches up in terms of experience and attitude.  Not miles between them. Not a chance and if Jake matches Wrights career he will be doing well

Wasn’t Gemmell a first team player at Annan a few years ago?

Threave have apparently signed Ryan Coates from Lochar, Grant Learmont from Heston and Corey Thompson amongst other rumoured players. Poor quality players by all accounts compared to previous season signings.

Coates is like a drunk man on a motorbike  .

Learmont  isn't a bad player .

The other I've  never heard of .

Coates, Learmont and Wright. I don’t think they’re anywhere near the standard of Jamieson, Wilson and Gemmell.

Yes I hear Jake has signed with Saints which is good for us. 
 
Also hear Stranraer have signed some more good players and have got players back in who went away to juniors last season 

Saints the dark horse team next season?

It appears the majority of players are staying where they are for next season. The only other rumour I’ve heard is Dode Martin to Dalbeattie.

Confirmed earlier. Goalkeeper merry-go-round in the south it would seem
Dodo to Dalbeattie. Wright to Threave. Gemmell to Saints. McCulloch to Nithsdale.

Dode to Dalbeattie is a sensible signing. Any idea why Gemmell left Threave for Saints? Money? or a disliking of the new management team? McCulloch to Nithsdale is a surprise.

Possibly financially motivated but credit to Saints for a strong turnaround in the second half of last season and look intent on building a strong team this season based on their recent signings so one would assume that has counted towards his decision too. McCulloch to Nithsdale certainly a surprise, especially since he's not signing from the Sunday League which looks to be where Nithsdale are doing their shopping right now. It's known that 'Dale have money to spend so maybe they're offering a decent signing on fee? Are the new signings from the Sunday League getting cash?

Any club paying cash to play in that league need to have a look at themselves .

You don’t mean anyone has EVER been paid over the years ? Do you really think so and pray tell whom ?
