Manager's Programme Notes


This afternoon, we welcome Hamilton Accies to Dens Park as First Division Champions and not, for what we had hoped, would be a title decider.

For that achievement I would like to congratulate Billy Reid and his side and they thoroughly deserve the guard of honour that we'll be giving them as they step out on to the pitch.

It is a way of recognising what a very good season they have had.

In fact, I think both teams have been excellent. We are disappointed not to be the ones finishing top but it has been a good race and taking it to the last week of the season means my players also deserve credit.

With the outcome of this season already decided, next season is very much in focus, discussions having already started with the players who are out of contract.

Some have indicated that they will move on, while others have asked for time to mull things over.

However, next Tuesday is the deadline as we need answers by then because plans will have to be put in place to replace those who are leaving.

There will undoubtedly be a turnover in players because that is the nature of the game these days with contracts lasting only one or two years.

That is not a new scenario to me though. I had to make changes when I first came to the club, but it is a bit different this time round, because we don't have players on big contracts to get out the door first.

Steps are already in hand to bring in new players. I have met people this week with a view to a couple coming here.

I have also had talks with someone down south with in the hope of getting a player from down south, so the planning for next season is already well in hand.

However, we do have this afternoon's game with Hamilton before bringing down the curtain on this season and hopefully we can sign off with a victory, because that is no less than our very loyal fans deserve.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you all next season.
