United News

With the games coming thick and fast, as they do during pre season, a few of the boys appear to have picked up wee niggley knocks.

Lee Wilkie, Scott Robertson, Andis Shala and Gary Kenneth all have slight knocks.

Robertson is expected to travel with the first team squad to Dunfermline on Wednesday, and the other three should be fit for the game against Barcelona on Saturday.

In other news, an unnamed Spanish Trialist (he will of course have a name, if you know his name, let me know) is still on trial with the club. So far he has set up a goal and scored one in the Oban Tournament and bagged another in a second string game versus Cowdenbeath.

The club are keeping this all very quiet, maybe so as not to alert other clubs?

We shall wait and see on that one.

At the same time as the first team are taking on Dunfermline at East End Park, a second string, comprising of some first team fringe players, reserves and youngsters, will be taking on Arbroath at Gayfield.

Hopefully we can pick up good results in both games.

And lastly, the Superstars that are Barcelona touched down in Scotland today, and headed to their St. Andrews training base ahead of their games against Hibs and the Mighty Shed!

Stars such as Messi and Eto'o have travelled with the squad, as well as new signings Alexander Hleb (£11.9m from Arsenal) and Daniel Alves (£23.5m from Sevillá).

The training schedule for the Barca squads training camp can be found here,just incase you fancy a wee trip down.
