Yesterday saw the publication of the fixture list for 2016/17 and today the squad return for pre-season training.
Our opening Betfred Cup tie takes place in four weeks’ time when we welcome Falkirk to Forthbank and we kick off Ladbrokes League 2 at Annan on August 6.
Binos boss Stuart McLaren said: “Knowing the fixtures allows us to plan in a little more detail so that we are prepared as best as possible for August 6th and beyond.
“Given the choice, I think the majority of teams would wish to start with a home game but it’s really of no significance. Each of the other nine teams will be as difficult as the others to beat so it doesn’t really matter which order you play them in.
“The players and staff are all excited to get back to work, knowing that the 16th of July then the sixth of August will not be long in coming.”
