Binos Back at Work

Stirling Albion returned to pre-season training last night, with further sessions planned for Thursday and Saturday, as Greig McDonald’s men begin the build-up to the 2012/13 campaign.

Greig said: “We had the guys running round Kings Park and everyone was in good spirits. We’ll work the players hard in pre-season and I’m also planning a number of closed-door friendlies because I think the best way to get ready for the first competitive match is by playing games.

“I’m really happy with the players we have managed to retain and I think the two guys we have brought in – Bradley Coyne and David McClune – will add quality to the squad. I’m also in talks with a left-back and have a couple of goalkeepers I am planning to invite to train with us at some point in the next few weeks, although we would obviously only need to sign one.”

Meanwhile, former Partick Thistle and Grimsby Town keeper Kenny Arthur, who had been linked with the Binos, has agreed a deal with Second Division Airdrie United.
