Talbot were quick off the mark on the signing front when they bagged the signatures of two experienced players. With Scott Johnston moving to Super First Division side Girvan the goalkeeping position was plugged by the signing of former Irvine Meadow keeper Brian Hewitt.
Most of us will remember Brian as a former Irvine Meadow keeper especially from back in October 2012 when he was part of the Meadow team that defeated us on penalties in the final of the Ardagh Cup at Beith. Brian also had a successful time at Neilston.
The problem position that Talbot struggled with last season after the injury to Mark Campbell was filled by new signing Danny Boyle.
Danny was part of the Rob Roy side that dominated the start of this seasons Premier Division, He was instrumental in the Rabs 2-0 win over us at Guys Meadow at the start of the season and its undoubtably this display that has caught the eye of the Talbot backroom staff. Danny is a former Cumbernauld stopper and was highly rated by the Super First outfit. He turned down a move to Gus McPherson’s Queen Park back in 2014.
