So, this.

Don’t get me wrong, an official club Twitter account was both long overdue and needed- as are the new Facebook page and club website that are rumored to be coming soon- but could the club please start signing players?!  The first pre-season match is tomorrow (against Highland League side Wick Academy F.C.) and our defense currently consists of Scott Boyd (love him!), Steven Saunders (four starts last season) and Ross MacKillop (promoted U20 player)- methinks this isn’t going to be enough!  Supposedly we have two central defenders on trial at the moment:

  • Jordi Balk, a 20 year old Dutch player currently playing for FC Utrecht’s youth side (Jong Utrecht).
  • Benedict Frempah, a 19 year old English player recently released by Leicester City F.C. after only one year with the club.

I’m sure they are both fine young men full of footballing potential, but surely there have to be some older, more experienced players in camp?  I can’t imagine going into the season with only one veteran player (Boyd) in the defense.

Starting to get a bit frustrated with the pace of things…
