I hear they’ve went the other way and lost the majority of their good players

What players have they lost ? Not seen any of their names popping up with other teams unless they’ve went other way like Ayrshire

Going by the Nithsdale twitter account they don’t seem to be struggling. Looks like majority of last seasons squad retained with 4/5 new faces added in. 
 

Abbey vale and threave also been busy going by the twitter accounts.

He’s there too ...... take it from me ! Johnny Baxter too apparently until he leaves for pastures new later in the year.  Anyone thinks Threave , Saints , Abbey Vale or anyone else will keep pace with that potential line up is deluded at best .......

On that case then they’re going be super strong. Take it they’ve kept everyone else such as defence and midfield?

Season is going to be very interesting - looking forward to it and hopefully the Saints can cause some upsets :D

With Stranraer taking the step down to League 2 I wouldn’t be surprised to see the better players in the reserve team moving up to the first team.

Possibly Tam but if I’m honest I can’t see them taking too many chances with the youngsters because if they have another poor season they could potentially end up risking Lowland League football and that’s a scenario I personally doubt they might ever return from ! Just my opinion but I’d reckon they’ll spend some of the Rangers cash to acquire a few proven players for this level in an attempt to bounce back straight away. 

I think most people realise that there are several very decent teams in LL that are certainly better than the perennial strugglers in League 2 and once the WOSFL adds a few more strong outfits it’ll be nearly impossible for them to the SPFL any time soon. The real shame is that this Pyramid currently stifles these forward thinking sides and I for one would love to see 2 promotion places available for those looking to progress and help revitalise Scottish Football which is long verdure

Going by Stranraer Facebook they have signed a lot of good players and used that rangers money so must be going for it to get straight back up. Doubt they will use any of reserve boys unless struggling maybe... Lewis Mccintyre will be a miss

With only 16 signed players there’s a very real possibility of some of the reserves going up as we seen last season.

One of their Reserves works for me and he says they’ve made really good signings and he fully expects them to compete at the right end of League 2 this Season ! I still believe there’ll be limited opportunities for these young lads although I might be wrong and time will tell

Would guess it will be much the same. First team running with a small squad, fill the bench with reserves when there are injuries or suspensions, take them up to Angus Or Elgin and give them two minutes football. 
Don’t think the manager realises  how good some of there boys are. Not one of them has looked out of place when given the opportunity. 
Credit to the South team last season, second half of the season they were losing their best players week in week out and still looked a terrific team.
