Does anyone have any clues to what the wages are like in Div 3 I mean is it on average 200 per week or is it more or less?

Could be even less for some.

We should however be able to compete with every SPL team outwith celtic in terms of wages.

I'd imagine it was between 50-200 as the teams are part time.

The East Stirling manager was moaning in The Sun last week about us being put in division 3..  He didn't seem to think it was fair that we could field players who earn thousands a week whilst his club have players who only earn 35 a week.

Do we need to be paying SPL level wages to anybody just now?

Seems like an unneeded spend and after years of overspending that's something I'd like to think we will try & avoid doing.

Its not just about the 3rd division though.

We want to be keeping up appearances in the cups as well.

We should however be signing a couple of older players who can guard our talented youngsters in the lower divisions.

Imagine you're a player in the third division, earning $200 a week or even playing for free and you get offered to play for $200 or for free, but with the facilities of Ibrox, playing before 30k + with millions of people around the world knowing your name.

Anyway these wages are terrible, at my club (Aussie rules) were just in a country league and we dont really have a pyramid structure but if we did we'd be maybe the 7th tear of Victoria, not even the whole country and our best player is on $500 AUD a week(330GBP)
18 year old ruckman on $200 AUD a week (130GBP) and base rate just if you fill in from the u18's or reserves is $75 AUD a week (50GBP)
