Maybole Juniors manager Carlo Walker says the club is already in full swing to celebrate their 75th anniversary.

The Bole are set to kick off their second season in the West of Scotland Football League on July 17 but before then they have had a few surprises off the pitch.

Walker said: “There is lots happening to celebrate this momentous occasion, there is a new black and gold third kit out.

“A local guy, Davie Anderson, has written a song called ‘MON THE BOLE’ which is due to be released soon.

“We also have an open day organised for July 10 and there will be more surprises planned as the season goes on.

“Alongside all that we are hoping to get the floodlights up soon, we are trying to get the planning permission for that currently. “

Back on the park a lot of the bole squad have signed up again for next season, alongside a few new faces.

Experienced goalkeeper Ally Semple joins the club from Cumnock Juniors having previous experience in the juniors with Glenafton and Troon.

The Bole also managed to lure a player over from derby rivals Girvan, with defender Michael Mossie signing on.

Walker says both players with be key additions to Maybole and should help aid to shore up their defence next season.

“Semple is a very good goalkeeper and adds a lot of experience to the side.

“He is injured currently, which is not so good, so he will be out for a few weeks but apart from that he will be a fine addition.

“We spent a bit of money on Mossie to get him, but he is a fantastic signing for the club.

“He is big, strong and very good on the ball and that is something I felt like we needed in defence.

“I am looking forward to seeing the impact he can have on the team with just his ability alone.”

It will not be long until the new signings get a chance to be tested as Bole play this weekend.

Walker said: “I am not as keen as some clubs who have been playing friendlies since May, so our first friendly is away to Bonnyton on Saturday. “
