DAWN OF A NEW ERA FOR JEANFIELD

4 months ago By Scott Cummings

SENIOR DEBUT FOR JEANFIELD

Tomorrow sees Jeanfield make their debut as a Senior club with a trip to Bo'ness United in the League Cup.

Swifts along with 24 other clubs from Fife and the Lothians left the Junior grade in the summer to become part of the SFA pyramid which provides a pathway all the way up to the SPFL.

This summer has saw a lot of changes both on and off the park with changes in committee members and coaching staff plus 4 players leaving the club with 5 coming in.

Manager Ross Gunnion had this to say when asked about the new season and the future ahead for the club.

"Here we are at the beginning of another season, albeit it’s not just any other season!"

"In my 7 years as player and manager at this club I’ve not encountered a pre-season that has held this much excitement and optimism."

"We’ve called time on 90 years in the Junior game and embarked on a new chapter in the clubs history, one which now sees Jeanfield Swifts enter the Senior ranks in the East of Scotland League."

"Pre-Season has went well, even if it’s been a little rushed given the earlier than usual season opener for us. We’ve welcomed 5 new signings to the team and all have settled in well."

"But now the real action starts and I’m excited to see how our existing players have improved and how our new additions will perform against a top class team in Bo’ness Utd."

"As a start it couldn’t have been much tougher, but that’s a mark of where we are as a club. We have worked incredibly hard to get ourselves to a level where we are on an equal footing with teams like Bo’ness, Linlithgow Rose and Bonnyrigg Rose. We forged ourselves into the best Junior Club In Perthshire and we are now faced with new challenges and promotion to the Lowland League as the target for the club."

"We’ll visit old friends and also travel to new grounds and form new relationships."

"I for one am incredibly excited by what this season and the future will hold. We hope all our fans and supporters will feel the same and we’ll be doing our utmost to repay that support with results."
