Montrose boss Stewart Petrie has suffered a big blow with goal-scoring midfielder Lewis Milne set to join League 1 rivals Raith Rovers.
Barry Smith has expressed his frustration that despite Raith deciding to remain a full-time club this season, they are struggling to compete with part-time outfits for transfer targets.
He has only been training with Raith since the start of this week but new signing Grant Gillespie has already sensed a steely determination within the squad to win promotion back to the Championship.
As someone who has played for Forfar, Livingston and now Arbroath, Danny Denholm knows the football scene below the Premiership inside out.
Courier Sport understands that Raith are keen to bring young Dundee keeper Calum Ferrie in on loan.
Arbroath boss Dick Campbell has been dealt a big blow after key midfielder Blair Yule asked to be put on the transfer list.
Montrose will start to gear up for life in League 1 on Sunday as boss Stewart Petrie welcomes his players back for pre-season.
Raith boss Barry Smith will run the rule over a number of trialists when pre-season training starts tomorrow.
This season will see a radical change in the way some clubs conduct their signing business following the ending of “Emergency Temporary Transfers” in this country.
It’s the start of pre-season training for the Brechin squad tonight but there will be one notable absentee as the players are put through their paces – boss Darren Dods.
