I was under the impression that compensation for out of contract u24 players is based on the money spent on their training, and has no relation to their perceived ability. I would imagine that the fees due at this level are very minimal, especially given that they've only spent 1 or 2 years at the club and haven't come through the academy. So I highly doubt that it is an issue, and I can't remember any cases where transfers have been blocked because of the rulings.

I doubt it'll be a sum worth getting excited about tbh. I don't think that will put sides off signing them.

How much are we due in compensation .What are the rules or can we ask for whatever we want .

Under 23 s require compensation to move. As I believe there is no limit but depends how long player has been at club. Most of ours have been at club for one year except Fitzpatrick. If can't agree then I would imagine tribunal like Lewis Ferguson a few years ago going to Aberdeen. But the fact  nobody has signed with anyone maybe means no one is willing to pay what we are asking. With the rules these players would have been offered new contracts.

One of the better posters, will be sadly missed.
He also had the best profile pic.


He loved a good wind up and thought the pic may get a few bites. He bought me a share in the South knowing fine my feelings about them. He however was Queens through and through a love that was past to his kids. My thoughts are with them.

I'm sure they're just waiting 'til I've bought my season ticket before announcing Innes Cameron is coming back. 

Don't. Just don't 😧

Saying that, I'm feeling bad about myself putting the boot in because whatever people's opinions of him are, I always felt that he did usually put a shift in. My negativity isn't towards him personally but, rather, the style of play - launching it up to 'the big man'.

I'd be interested to see how Reilly and Paton could work together. Maybe they'll not be physical enough for our league but then again, maybe it would make us play more progressive football through our midfield. I thought that was when we were at our best last season (I know it was only for about three 20 minute spells!).

Ruari Paton has been on a podcast, the link is on his Instagram. Should give it a listen.

I listened to the first minute, realised I'd been pronouncing his name wrong for a year (I didn't know it was pronounced Patton not Paiton) and decided it was all too much for me.

Paton saying he offered to pay his compensation fee himself but the club ended up doing it

That was very good of him and not surprising at all; I always thought he was extremely hard working and a great team player last season, he seemed to be one of the ones who truly cared. I'm pleased that the club didn't let him pay it - I know we're cheap, but surely not that cheap that we'd let a new signing pay his own transfer fee!

I also think that (in relation to the previous discussion on compensation for Rae, Connelly etc) this proves that compensation due at this level is extremely minimal. If a 20 year old playing semi professionally for Stranraer can afford to pay his own compensation, it can't be much of a stumbling block.
