Phil’s comments on selection:
We welcome new boys Ross Jones, Craig Robertson and Adam Sinclair into our starting squad, while welcoming back Stuart Edwards and Jack Turley back into the ranks.
Phil’s comments on the match:
Stirling have made some strong signings over the summer, most notably Ross Curle, so will deliver a stern test for our season opener. Our preseason has been good though still plenty to work on, with the number of new recruits and returning players trying to fit into our structure and culture. Hopefully this will not affect the flow of the game and both teams are able to show their best form from the off, particularly as good weather is forecast.
