There are at least 4 clubs in League 1 paying that sort of money (Airdrie, QP, Falkirk and Cove). Of course there are boys in League 1 on £150 a week but you've signed guys like Kirkpatrick and Moore who are not your run of the mill League 1 players commanding £150 a week - they could demand more than that from clubs higher up the league than you. Again, if it's not money, why are these boys dropping up to 4 levels when they have offers from clubs higher up? 

Nobody is saying you're spending £500K on your yearly budget, they're saying you're spending well over the odds for some players that could easily be playing at a higher level. The fact you've tried to deflect with that budgetary figure says a lot tbh. Nobody suggested you were spending that but you've jumped to it. 

I’ve just sent you a screen shop that out an end to that Mckeever £400 a week

Any when we signed Ross he had taken a break from football his last club was in League 2. Why would we need to give him over £500 a week, fulltime player in the championship are on that, there boyd a QOS fulltime on £350.
Ive know Ross for ten year we didn’t have to pay anywhere near that to come to Darvel 
I believe you.

I’m not saying we don’t pay well we do, but I can assure there aren’t players on £400 a week not one. We speak to players every summer some come and some don’t. Why would I come on a public forum we don’t offer of that if we do, I would embarrass myself,

I'll ask one more time, if it's not wages then why are these players dropping to WoS from Championship/League 1 level?

Are you going to admit now that Ryan wasn’t offered £400 

You would need to ask them, but there aren’t players on the money your saying they are

I didn't see Ryan deny it mate :rolleyes: - only joking, as I said in the message, the person I got the info from would have no reason to lie about that, if it's not entirely true then fair enough but I still don't agree with your assertion that you aren't paying better money than a lot of clubs up the pyramid. Craig Moore was literally a Championship level striker and he dropped 4 levels to play for Darvel. If it was a Kelty Hearts fan telling me that Tommy Reilly and Nathan Austin only want to play for KH because it meant less travelling to Forfar or Inverness I'd be laughing in their face as well.

I don’t know what goes on at Kelty, what I will tell you Thomas Reilly was very close to signing for a premier league team in our league this season not us. Would that have meant they are paying £400 a week.

We could go on all day mate, I’ve said my bit

If I was a League One level player being offered the same wages at, say, Dumbarton or Darvel I'd go for Darvel. Less travel, more chance of winning something, lower level so will probably enjoy running the show against Bonnyton and Rossvale and, most importantly, don't need to speak to Andy Geggan.

Less travel for who? 

Probably why you're not a footballer and a handsome, dedicated athlete like Andy Geggan is tbh.

A regional league with all the games taking place within 40 miles of Glasgow is less travel than League One. Cove, Montrose, Peterhead are all a bit further out.

Although the WoSFL Premier Division probably has more trips to East Ayrshire than is healthy no matter what club you play for.

Ryan McGeever was offered an amount not too dissimilar to that figure in the summer. A 2 year deal at Dumbarton was enough to persuade him to stay but there's no doubt Darvel are offering players £400, possibly more at their top end. 

I had a very candid conversation with someone who was pursued by Darvel in the summer but signed for a league 2 team instead. Heard all the rumours about the money and just outright asked him, it was decent money and signing bonus but not £500 a week stuff. 
For all folks want to slag darvel, they’ve invested in their facilities, invested in their team and are now one of the best non league teams in the country. Fair play to them.

I'll give you that they have invested in the facilities and the team but they have a long way to go to be considered one of the best non league teams in the country.

So theres what over 100 teams in the Wosfl, eosl, LL, HL and sjfa etc, id be pretty comfortable saying that the top 5/7 in the wosl are in the top ten of that 100+.

Lot of pish.

They aren't even one of the top ten in non league teams in non league scotland.

They have won nothing, never really beat any of the big hitters. Brought shame on this level numerous times. A disgrace.

What good is a some fancy facilities when it's a basket case of a club no matter how anyone tries to spin it.

Ok. I dont know what someone at darvel did wrong to you, but it must have been awful.

Some of  the figures banded about are just silly and is pure jealousy , as a supporter I don’t care whether they are on £40 per week or £400 per week I would be expecting a lot more on the park than what we are seeing and that’s up to mick to sort out which I really hope he can and im sure he will , Ive read and listened to another couple of articles at the weekend where mick said he had no say in not entering the junior cup , well the committee had no say either so who decided they wouldn’t enter the junior cup ? Honestly when I’m on the street that’s all people talk about and is the worst Decision the club has ever made , u should never forget ur roots and always remember my dad saying to me just win the junior cup for me and he won’t be alone in that , most people who have been associated with the clubs history  that’s the trophy that we would Like to see the most , I’m no having the too many games nonsense when we have floodlights this season , if Talbot never entered it there would have been an outcry about it from the locals
