Midfielder Brad Spencer has signed a new one-year deal with Raith Rovers.

Queen of the South have completed a double defensive swoop with the arrivals of Paul McKay from Airdrie and Roberto Nditi from Forfar. the former can also play midfield.
Queens also confirmed that striker Euan East has signed on for another season at Palmerston.

Exciting player to add to kilmarnock's currently tiny squad: CHELSEA are keeping up the charm offensive to sign Billy Gilmour’s kid brother Harvey from Kilmarnock.

And Billy made sure Harvey, 15, was given a taste of fame when he went to Porto for the Champions League final and even got his hands on the cup.

Chelsea's scouts have been tracking the ball-playing midfielder for more than a year who is ­currently starring for Kilmarnock’s youth team.

Ange Postecoglou is the new Celtic manager.

Livingston have completed the signing of Liverpool left-back Adam Lewis on a season-long loan deal.

Dumbarton have been doing some serious business. They are going to need their own thread at this rate...

They announced the return of Joe McKee earlier (from QoTS) and have now added two more faces to Stevie Farrell's squad.

Striker David Hopkirk joins from Stenhousemuir, and winger Ross MacLean, fresh off a title win with Queen's Park, has also signed up.

Defender Edin Lynch has joined from newly relegated Alloa. No contract length given

Dumbarton have signed experienced midfielder Paul Paton on a one-year deal, he left East Kilbride in the summer

Kilmarnock have announced the signing of Forest Green defender Chris Stokes on a free transfer.

The 30-year old centre-back joins the Rugby Park side on a two-year contract

Josh Kerr signs one year extension at Airdrie.

Falkirk Football Club can confirm that Sean Kelly will be leaving the club upon expiry of his contract for the 2020/21 season. Defender Scott Mercer's completed a move to East Fife, 2 yr deal. East Fife have transfer listed Thomas Collins.

Peterhead manager Jim McInally has started making plans for next season without defender Kyle Bailey and striker Steven Boyd after the deadline for agreeing new contracts passed without deals being agreed. Bailey should have high adaptability and low loyalty (has played in Malta and Norway).

Forfar: Manager Gary Irvine has confirmed that long-serving midfield player Murray MacKintosh, in fact, the second longest-serving player at the club has rejected a new contract and will move on to pastures new. Also leaving are Jordan Allan, Chris Antoniazzi, Kyle Dalling, Scott Fenwick, Graeme Holmes and Hamish Thomson but I think we've covered most of them in previous posts.

Queen of the South have signed former Hearts striker Ally Roy after his exit from Airdrie.

Elgin: Young GK Oliver Kelly has signed a one year extension with the Club. He will join Lossiemouth FC on Loan for the remainder of the Season.
Fullback Jamie Tinnock, Midfielder’s Charlie Hay & Matt Jamieson will join Highland League outfit Deveronvale Football Club on Loan for the remainder of the season.
Note - I was a bit confused by the wording 'remainder of the season' - seems they are on loan for the whole 21/22 season.
Stephen Bronsky leaves the club.

Stranraer - oh to be a fly on the wall for this chat as Mark Lamont cancels his transfer from Clyde: The changes at the club since Mark agreed to join us have unsettled the player, and he has expressed his reasons for this.

Marc Laird Edinburgh city to Stirling Albion (1 yr)
striker Dylan Bikey has signed a new deal for 2021/22. Meanwhile, full-back/midfielder Cammy Thomson has left the club to join Linlithgow Rose

Cowdenbeath: that 18 year old defenders Ross Pollock and Lennon Watson are the latest players to sign a new contract for season 2021/22. popular central defender Jamie Todd is the latest player to sign back on at Central Park for 2021/22.
We can also now confirm that leaving Central Park will be Mac Whyte, Jamie Pyper, Michael Herd, Jay Sandison, Jacob Glass and Lewis Owens. Jay is joining Camelon whilst Michael is rejoining his old club, Spartans. Jamie meantime has been signed by Berwick Rangers whilst Jacob we understand is potentially going to the USA

Kelty: goal-machine Nathan Austin all extending their contracts on Saturday, and then midfielder Thomas Reilly, defender Scott Hooper and goalkeeper Josh Donaldson extended their contracts in the last few days.
Sadly, Paddy Boyle, Jamie Stevenson, Thomas Scobbie, Matthew Flynn, Craig Reid and Andy Rodgers will be departing the club.

Hibs forward Ryan Shanley has joined Edinburgh City on a season-long loan.

Dundee have officially confirmed the permanent signing of Paul McMullan on a two-year deal.

The forward moved across Tannadice Street from Dundee United on a loan deal in January,

Hamilton Accies have announced the signing of Kieran MacDonald from Raith Rovers . Weirdly he seems to be part time even though Accies are a full time club. Prob best to leave that out if it messes up Hamilton's status to have part time player, all others (I believe) are full time.

Hurrah, a scout! Motherwell: 51 year old Englishman, Nick Daws is our new head of recruitment operations.

Add John Joyce coach as an Ayr United coach. Added at same time as Jim Duffy but Jim got the headlines and John was a footnote.

Forward Robbie Muirhead signs a one year extension with Morton

Arbroath FC would like our supporters to give a very warm welcome to our newest signing 28-year-old Goalkeeper Calum Antell. Calum joins the club from Edinburgh City

Morton defender Michael Ledger has penned a new one year deal to remain at Cappielow

Josh Meekings Wealdstone to Brora Rangers (given the level, if he is not already in the dB, not worth adding).

Falkirk have completed the signing of Leon McCann on a three-year deal. The talented left-back departed Airdrie

Partick extend GK Jamie Sneddon and Def Steven Bell,one year deals. Strictly speaking Bell is signing from East Kilbride but spent the second half of last year on loan at partick. Bell should have good influence and professionalism but should also be on a part-time contract as he has a full time job outside football. Kyle Turner signs a two year deal with the Jags after leaving Dunfermline.

Rhys McCabe QOTS to Airdrie. M C
Dylan Easton Kelty to Airdrie. A dynamic and stylish player, Dylan can operate as an attacking midfielder or supporting striker.
Jay Cantley. GK. Falkirk to Airdrie
No contract lengths given for any of above. Assume 2 yrs.

Ross county coaching staff: Don Cowie has been promoted to Assistant Manager from his role as 1st Team Coach last season. Joining as 1st Team Coach is another familiar name in the shape of Stuart Taylor- who previously played for Ross County between 2004-06. Stuart joins with a wealth of coaching experience, latterly with Aston Villa, Wolves, Stoke City and Ipswich Town.

Also joining Malky’s backroom team is Enda Barron. Enda brings to Ross County extensive experience and knowledge of Football Data Analysis and Player Recruitment structures. (IE. SCOUT)

Goalkeeping coach Scott Thomson, Physiotherapist Willie Nolan and Sport Scientist Liam Jukes remain on board. Assume any other coach in dB not named has left. Leave any scouts as we have so few.

Blair Spittal has committed his immediate future to Ross County in signing a new one-year contract at the Global Energy Stadium

Brighton u23 captain Teddy Jenks joins Aberdeen on a season long loan. Central mid.

Dundee United have confirmed the signing of Charlie Mulgrew from Blackburn Rovers. 2 yr deal. Please give him coaching stats as he will apparently move into a coaching role in year 2 but don't make him a coach at the club at the moment

Dunfermline have signed ex-Inverness striker Nikolay Todorov. 1 yr deal.

Liam Shaw Sheff Wed to Celtic would already have been in as a pre-contract move, Celtic contract length now confirmed as 4 years.

LB Calum Waters signs a 1 year ext at Kilmarnock. Steven Warnock has signed a new contract with Killie until the summer of 2023. Althghough only 17, he played a couple of first team games last year so can be added to the squad. Transfermarkt says he is a right winger who also sometimes plays on the left wing.

Michael Ledger has signed a new 1 year ext with Greenock Morton

Stenhousemuir have signed former Airdrie and St Johnstone midfielder Euan O'Reilly as they prepare for the League Two campaign

Conrad Balatoni has signed a one year deal with Clyde after leaving Edinburgh City.

Cross referenced all above to the weekly spfl list of transfers

Steven Boyd (Peterhead) F
Mark Durnan (Falkirk) DC
Conor Sammon (Falkirk) S C

Mark Lamont (Clyde)

Andy Black arrives at Kelty having been released by Edinburgh city.

The club can confirm that James Vincent, Kevin McHattie, Nikolay Todorov, Brad Mckay, James Keatings, Martin MacKinnon and Shane Harkness will be leaving us this summer.

Falkirk have signed up Danny Grainger and Tony Caig as coaches ahead of pre-season. Danny Grainger joins as Sheerin’s number two and Tony Caig will be the Bairns’ goalkeepers’ coach.

Jason Naismith (RB) latterly of Ross County, signs one year deal with Kilmarnock. Euan Deveney (LB) will also remain in Ayrshire for the new campaign. Northern Irish box to box mf Brad Lyons is added from Blackburn having spent last year on loan at Morecambe. 2 yr deal. Fraser Murray has joined the Rugby Park rebuild after signing a two-year contract with Killie. Another midfielder who comes from the Hibs academy after being on loan with Dunfermline last season.

John Ginnelly has penned a two-year deal with Hearts after his smash-hit loan stay from Preston.

Jamie Ness (free agent) should have injury proneness 18. He took a year out of the game but is apparently looking for a club again.

GK Ryan Scully in db as a Scottish free agent, is Irish. He has exclusively played in Scotland since a young age though so perhaps could be given Scottish second nationality to make it more likely for a Scottish team to sign him.

GK Peter Cherrie, in db as Scottish free agent, is contracted with Dundalk until 31/12/21

Alan Davidson NI/Scottish free hasn't had a club since 18/19 and can be removed.

Michael McGlinchey (NZ/ Scottish) free agent has quite a high Rep, presumably related to his Kiwi international status, however his last two clubs in Scotland were Queens Park and Clyde so perhaps his club rep can be brought down to suit.

Apal-who?

Queen of the South have won the race to sign goalkeeper Josh Rae. The 20-year-old left Peterhead under freedom of contract last month

Celtic have secured the signing of Scunthorpe United striker Joey Dawson on a three-year deal. The 18-year-old will join the Colts. Young goalkeeper Tobi Oluwayemi has signed a new contract that will keep him at Parkhead until the summer of 2024. Also Colts.

At Kilmarnock, Colin Doyle will be back-up keeper and GK coach. GK coach Billy Thomson in the db has retired joined Stranraer. Stuart MacFarlane becomes fitness coach and Alan Maybury general coach. Killie fans aren't impressed with Doyle's performance and he should have poor reflexes / agility.

Forfar management team: Scott Robertson (Dundee) ass man, Gary Harkins, coach, Wayne Henderson is to remain as the club’s goalkeeping coach, while Mark Farrell continues as the club’s fitness ‘guru.’

On the medical side, Lara Jordan will be praying she is not so busy this time round in her physiotherapist’s role while the club are once again very lucky to have Jane Crawford entering her fifth season as the Club Doctor

Striker Steven Doris signs a one year extension.

Dumbarton sign player 12, GK Sam Ramsbottom, last at Morton.

Montrose FC have confirmed that, following extended negotiations, striker Russell McLean is to leave Links Park having turned down a contract extension offer.

Elgin:young defender David Wilson leaves

At Kelty, Kevin Thomson keeps it in the family by hiring his brother in law, Musselburgh manager Kevin McDonald, to be his assistant.

Confirmation that the Stranraer management team will all continue playing as well as coaching, their squad as it stands today is this group with anyone not named having moved on: The Blues already have 11 players – Greg Fleming, Sean Burns, Ayrton Sonkur, Kieran Millar, Grant Gallagher, Matty Yates, Josh Walker and Jamie Walker, as well as the management trio of Hamill, Darryl Duffy and Scott Robertson – returning, as well as the addition of Tommy Muir.

Dundee United youngster Jake Davidson has joined Queen's Park. D C

Dunfermline, Lewis Martin high injury prone, per his manager: Lewis has had a bit of a tough time over the last few years, certainly the last 15 months probably. He’s been struggling a wee bit here and there but he’s a big part of the group and it’s just a matter of getting him the right diagnosis for the illness/injury he has at this moment in time. We’re looking at that closely.

Tony Ralston signs one year ext at Celtic.

Checked all above v weekly spfl list, nothing missing

Zach Hemming (GK Middlesbrough) is pleased to be reunited with Paul Stephenson (Kilmarnock ass man) after signing a season-long loan deal with Killie. He signed a two year deal with Middlesbrough before leaving. Chris Burke has put pen to paper on a new one year deal at Kilmarnock.

Kilmarnock have sold DM Alan Power to St Mirren. Judging by comments on Killie message boards, power's pace and acc should be single figures now. 1 year deal.

Stranraer add to the squad listed just above, with Paul Woods (AM) returning to the club from East Kilbride and Sean McIntosh (Predominantly a right back but able to play in a variety of positions across defence and midfield,) from Brechin. Both 1 yr deals. Grant Gallagher is new club captain.

Jack Gurr: Atlanta to Aberdeen. 1 year deal. Think he is English with US second nationality.

Highly-rated Celtic coach John McLaughlan has left the Parkhead club to take up a role as Hearts’ academy coaching development manager. Exiting Hearts is 21 year old Andy Irving, who joins Turkgucu Munchen of Germany - didn't seem to merit its own post in Germany scouting somehow... Left footed centre m/am with 13 for technique.

Ayr United have secured the signing of Rangers academy product GK Aidan McAdams from cinch Championship club Greenock Morton. 2 year deal. Won Morton poty and has worked with the Ayr manager before so should have something about him and like the manager.

Justin Amaluzor Maidstone to Motherwell. Good opportunity to use a Beck song in the Twitter unveiling.

DONE UP TO AND INCLUDING THIS POST


Former Dundee keeper Calum Ferrie has signed a two year deal with Queen’s Park.

Forfar sign former Dumbarton mf Stefan McCluskey, 1 yr deal.

GK Deniz Mehmet moves from Dundee utd to Dunfermline. 2 year deal.

Cove Rangers
: We are delighted to confirm the signing of experienced midfield duo Ross Draper and Iain Vigurs, who have penned three year deals with the club. (Both recently released by Ross county). moving on from the club is defender Tom Leighton, who spent last season on loan with SLFL side East Kilbride.

Tommy Wright is pleased to secure the services of Liam Polworth at the second time of asking after the former Motherwell midfielder signed a two-year deal with Kilmarnock.

There is a player called Danail Ivanov in Peterhead's April21 db squad. Per transfermarkt he appears to now be known as Danail Dimov and has played for Chernomorets Balchik since July 2020. Definitely same guy as tm shows his spell at Peterhead and a loan to a Highland League club that match to news stories about Ivanov, plus name and position match up.

It's a slow news day here in Scotland...

Aberdeen midfielder Mark Gallagher has joined League Two side Forfar Athletic on loan for the 2021/22 season

St Johnstonehave handed a number of their youngsters their first professional contracts with the club.
Goalkeeper Craig Hepburn and midfielder Bailey Pert have both signed deals that will keep them at the club until June 2023.

QotS add Irish forward Ruari Paton, bought from Stranraer, 2 year deal, and Scottish Sunderland releasee Lee Connelly, also a forward, on a one year deal.

Not sure if Manny Perez still shows in the Celtic squad but he was transferred to Portland Timbers in late April. They immediately loaned him to Austin - transfermarkt says he returns to Portland 31 Nov 2021. He should have second nationality Mexican.

Despite being only 21 Forfar player Chris Antoniazzi should have coaching stats:https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/f ... inks-park/
Despite the surname, I can't prove an Italian second nationality

Craig Samson at Hibs is the GK coach as well as a registered player

A famous name signs for Edinburgh city:
We are delighted to confirm the loan signing of highly-rated St Johnstone youngster Alex Ferguson for the season.
The youngster is ear-marked by Saints’ manager Callum Davidson as a terrific prospect and has already handed the 17-year-old his senior debut for the first team. A midfielder, Alex is already building a reputation for being very comfortable with either foot and extremely skillful.

Arbroath:
We are very excited to announce the signing of 21-year-old midfielder Dylan Paterson.
Dylan is a young, very quick, talented and creative midfielder who has been capturing the eye of many clubs after being a stand out for Junior side Bo’ness Athletic where he has been their creative outlet and scorer of many goals.

At the other end of the age range, 37 year old Gavin Swankie signs a 6 month extension.

Back to youngsters, Kieran Mitchell signs his first professional contract at Raith Rovers. One year deal for the 16 year old striker.

A few signings at Clyde:
The club is pleased to announce the signing of right-back Billy Mortimer. 1 year deal from Cumbernauld colts, not sure if will be in dB,prev with queen's park.
The club is pleased to announce the signing of forward Robert Jones on a one-year contract. Should be a hold up man with low off the ball / finishing. Last club Dumbarton.
he club is pleased to announce the signing of experienced central defender Jonathan Page. One year from Brechin
The club is pleased to announce the signing of forward Kieran McGrath. Possibly in dB at either east Kilbride or Peterhead. Manager claims his atts are technical ability, vision and creativity.

So far as I can tell, these players on the Apr21db with Clyde are no longer there (in addition to any released in previous posts) - Chris Johnston seems to have been released back in March, Marky Munro is not on the up to date squad list on their website, and neither is Kristoffer Syvertsen, whose Twitter indicates he has left. So all 3 as frees for the moment please.

Cove Rangers are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper, Kyle Gourlay, who joins on a 2 year contract after leaving Hamilton Accies at the end of last season.
They have simultaneously loaned out young GK Balint Demus to Formartine Utd in the Highland League

Queen’s Park FC today announced Max Gillies has re-signed for the club. New one year deal

Brechin have released most of their squad: Also departing the Club is David Hutton, Bobby Barr, Sean McIntosh, Paddy O'Neil, Connor Coupe, Ewan McLevy, Abdul Osman, Jonathan Page, Chris Paton and Scott Reekie following the expiration of their contracts.
They have added Stephen Simmons to the Hearts old boys' club as assistant manager, with Craig Nelson currently remaining as Goalkeeping Coach and Seb Panczyk as Physiotherapist.

Jamie Redman, in the db at Cove, should be a free.

Cowdenbeath: Cian Kavanagh should be at Waterford (Ire), moved last season. Kyle Sneddon was released March and can be a free. Graham Taylor (not that one) has been transferred to Berwick Rangers.

Dumbarton: all these guys were freed some time ago - Denny Johnstone, Donald Morrison, Matthew Reilly & Chris Smith. Joshua Bradley-Hurst and Jaime Wilson aren't on the official squad list for the season but no official confirmation they are gone so note here for me to google them later in the close season.

East Fife: Thomas Collins has moved to Kilwinning Rangers. Given level, may want to take him out of db completely. Note to check Aiden McLaughlin at end of close season, not announced as leaving but not on squad list.

Edinburgh City: Blair Henderson has been released. Possibly signing with Spartans, again candidate for removal.

Elgin City have signed Kyle Dalling, prev Forfar. David Wilson, young def, has left the club and is available on a free.
Related to Elgin, please can you add Murray Miller, 19 years old, DM C, first nat Australian, second Scottish, to Rangers (R) - he was on loan to Elgin last year. It seems he prompted a "tug of war" (copyright: The Sun) for his international future and he chose Australia, I have to think if Australia U17s managed to locate him in Glasgow and are paying business class fares to get him back for meaningless U19 fixtures, he must be half decent.

Falkirk: home strip this year is the normal very dark blue and white, but "The away strip sees a return to light blue for the first time in over a decade." Primary colour of Man City blue with the very dark blue from the home strip used for CM01 text.
Scott Harrison left the club in 2019 and is available on a free. Veteran Lee Miller has joined East Kilbride and as former co-manager of Falkirk should be given coaching stats, although it appears he has no coaching responsibilitie at EK.

Forfar: Mark Hill has had his contract terminated after 'fitness problems', give player low natural fitness. Martyn Fotheringham has retired - he should be an out of work coach. Martin Scott is moving to Gala Fairydean (non league) to take up a player-coach role.
Neither Archie Thomas nor Michael Travis are shown as squad members on the club website, but neither are shown as going anywhere either. Hold to be reviewed later in close season.

Scotland - Transfers, Scouting & Feedback

Post by Here2Win79 »

Hamilton: add Daryl Meikle, CM, Scottish, dob 14/6/01 (ie age 20) on website as first team squad member.

Hearts: Leeroy Makovora has been released. I reported this above but mangled his surname so badly that it may not have gone through... To save the AI rushing out to buy more keepers, please can you add their reserve team GKs, Harris Spratt (13/11/03)and Harry Stone (20/04/02). Both Scottish, the latter seems closer to the first team as he has a squad number.

Inverness: Lewis Toshney left the club in March and remains free. James Vincent, who was at the club but freed up above, should have coaching stats added as his twitter says he has a UEFA B Licence.

Kilmarnock
: Their new away strip is a nightmare for those like me who struggle to read dark on dark in cm01, namely deep red shorts with two different shades of dark blue on the top. Maybe we can promote their new third strip - white text on a purple background?
Kirk Broadfoot - who had been considering his future with the club - has been training with lower division teams so pretty sure he has been freed.

Montrose: please give Aaron Lennox second nationality English - has been in the UK for >9 years.

Morton: I'm not sure Brian McLean is coaching them any more (is still in their playing squad) but they have few coaches so prob best to leave as is. He should like Rangers, John Brown, and Steven Pressley.
Jamie Butler's contract expired recently and he isn't in their squad on the website; set to free. Ditto Luca Colville.
Jim McAlister can be completely retired, he now works as a kitman at Rangers.
Chris Millar has left for East Kilbride (player only role)

Partick: Andy Rodden has departed for non league East Stirling. So has Dean Watson.

QotS: Daniel Harvey left in 2019. Currently at Gretna but contract due to expire so make free for now. It looks like Jack Leighfield has been freed. Nortei Nortey and Dan Pybus are no longer in the squad list either.

Queens Park: Lewis Moore, once of Hearts, has been signed. Will Baynham, formerly with the UCSB Gauchos (giddyup) joined in Sep 2020 and is still there. Will is (according to tm) a centre forward who can also play on the left, 24 years old, first nat Canadian, 2nd Oz (no idea how he is getting a wp, says he was offered a place in Bournemouth youth academy so maybe moved here with his parents when still of school age, then off to uni in the US). Canice Carroll and David Galt appear to have left the club and Dan Nimmo definitely did in 2019 so can be deleted from the db as has only played juniors since.

Raith Rovers: Jack Smith is off to Juniors football and so can be deleted.

Stenhousemuir: Josh Grigor is on loan to a team I have never heard of for the whole season, Syngenta Juveniles FC. Assuming they aren't in the db, any Scottish lower tier club will suffice, maybe East Kilbride as based on the above they already have loads of players. Coming from the lower leagues, is Michael Anderson, BSC Glasgow, now at Stenny. M L.
The Brazilian blood of Jack Hodge hasn't carried him to Samba success but in the opposite direction from Anderson, as he signs for BSC Glasgow.
