As part of the Summer site revamp, we hope to introduce a regular news round-up taking a light-hearted look at matters concerning our great team and Scottish football in general (but mostly our great team). As a forerunner to this, we have asked AFTN correspondent ‘The Undisputed’ to take a weekly-ish irreverent, maybe even controversial, view on things down Bayview way and beyond. Here’s the first in this series, ‘View From The Bay’.

For the third time this week Stenhousemuir have signed a player from Brechin City. It’s a novel approach to building a team – let someone else do it. Then each close-season, sign the whole team. Last year they signed Berwick, this season they’re signing Brechin. Perhaps they’re just going through the SFL alphabetically? Clyde players – you have a year to dig out your maps to Larbert.

East Fife meantime have made four signings. In line with European Union legislation on helping poorer communities we have as usual complied with the statutory ‘one from Raith and one from Cowden’ ruling thus allowing us to also make two proper signings in Steven Tweed and Paul Stewart.

Kevin Fotheringham has confirmed in the press that his wages will almost double when he moves from socially-deprived Kirkcaldy to New Bayview. Analysts say this is the result of scrap metal reaching record highs in the commodities market combined with an ageing population in the Falkirk area.

***

David Longmuir has been appointed Chief Executive of the SFL. David was an Airdrie supporter so, on first thought, ought to be sympathetic to the threat of extinction hanging over teams. Given the psychological theory of how the abused becomes the abuser however, perhaps we can all expect the league to be defunct in two year’s time.

East Fife season tickets will be on sale soon, and will offer up the usual big savings to any supporter not buying one Interested fans should contact the Club, hand over their money and select their seat. Seats D3 and D4 are not available as they’ve already been taken by Jason Dair and Scott Crabbe.
