A Catch Up With Kevin Harper.
It’s an unprecedented situation, what has been happening with the players and yourself?
“ It’s a really tough time – no one knows what will happen next. Joe (McLaughlin) and myself have kept in contact with the players in our group chat.
“Most of what we are talking about at the moment is outwith football, we are there to support the guys. With most of them still working it is hard to put football first.
“They are all training as much as they can do at the moment. The squad know I expect professionalism – we are continuing with the mindset we could be playing football in the coming months. They are all working on individual programmes.
“We would still need to have a mini-preseason for the first week or so we came back but the guys keeping fit is a huge help. It’s good for them as well to keep engaged, we are all missing it, well maybe they are happy to get away from my shouting for a wee while!”
Our fans have donated over £7,000 on our JustGiving page.
👏 THANK YOU
💛 A massive thanks to anyone who has generously donated so far, during what is a hard time for all of us.
❤️ It is immensely appreciated by everyone involved at the club.

“It’s incredible really, you can’t say anything more than that. Thank you.
“The whole backroom staff are grateful, I have said so many times but our fans have been wonderful since I came in. I honestly don’t know a support who have been through so many challenges and tough times with the enthusiasm they have.
“To put there hands in their pockets and dig deep at this time, it really goes without saying our supporters are truly good people.”
It is a tough time physically and mentally for everyone. When football is there, I don’t think we realise how much it plays a part in our lives. Health and the wellbeing of yourself and your family are the most important things in life right now and I hope everyone stays safe. Kevin.
❗ Now more than ever, it’s important to look after ourselves.
