Gowfers’ gaffer Alan McSkimming is all smiles this week as he contemplates what next season could bring.

The boss is still cagey about new signings despite the club parting company with a number of players this week including Gordon McDonald, Scott Hunter, Paul Findlay and Andy Cowan.

Alan said: “It looks like we’re probably going to have five or six new faces joining the club for next season, and they’ve all got junior and senior football experience which will help us to build a team which will challenge for the honours next season. It’s really positive just now.”

Next season’s set up for the Super League has also helped. Alan said: “I think it’s an exciting time for anyone who follows a junior club, the new set up is very competitive and there are a few more local teams in the mix which means there will be some more derbies next season.”
