Talbot’s first pre-season friendly involves a visit from East cracks Newtongrange Star. The Star who are now under the guidance of former Musselburgh gaffer Stevie McLeish have added a number of influential signings for the start of this season. A number of them come from McLeish’s old club Musselburgh and this looks like being a tough encounter.
Talbot to date have only added two new signings but have lost the services of Davie Gillies, Scott Johnston, Willie Boyd, Robert Love and Martin Findlay. Goalkeeper Scott Johnston has joined ADL Champions Girvan while Robert Love has joined Largs Thistle. Davie Gillies has joined up with his old team mate Gavin Friels at Dalry Thistle.
