Austin to Kelty Hearts?!

Recommended Posts

I mean, I understand why he left, he was scheduled for transfer soon enough. But Jesus, all the way down to the Lowland League from the Championship...what happened to Airdries interest?

He doesn’t look particularly happy there. I cant help wondering....

“Great news Nathan, I’ve got you a move to Hearts. Just sign here!”

It's probably because Barry Ferguson is in charge they seem like a team on the up wouldn't surprise me if they get promoted to the football league in the next couple of years

Very strange.  The move is also reported on the P&J website.  I get that Kelty are an ambitious club and may well be challenging for the lowland league title next year, but it still represents a massive drop in level for him.  I certainly prefer White to Austin in many respects but I always felt that Austin was a more natural finisher and he's had a few very composed finishes for us.  It may be that a drop down the leagues will provide him with the opportunity to boost his confidence with a hat full of goals, but I remain to be convinced that Yngwie's explanation isn't the truth of the matter!

Or Fashing trip...

Glad to see the back of him. He was hopeless. At least you get 100% from big Jordan, even if his second touch is a tackle 😜

A late late contender for the most ridiculous post of the season.

At the beginning,  he looked like he had potential,  but he spends more time falling down than he does on his feet. I really don't think he will be missed. I wish him well for the furure, and maybe he thinks going down the leagues will help his form.

Apparently Kelty have some money behind them now and really want to push on in the league. 

Maybe their a Brora of the lowland league

They certainly are. Their sugar daddy finds the players jobs too, as he has a conservatory firm. They’ve spent a tidy sum upgrading their ground, which was probably decent enough for L2 anyway.

At least we know what level we are competing with in regards to wages.

Slightly unfair as described above. Also wasn’t it fairly common knowledge that fash wanted a move south?

Why would it be never got a fair crack of the whip where big White started every game Austin has way more about him in front of goal he'll score loads of goals for Kelty good luck to him see they signed Tam o Reilly as well a 1 time decent prospect they'll be good nxt season

I wonder if Kelty are going to do a Gretna with their new found fortune. Punch way above their belt, then go bust following their relegation from the Prem...

Nathan's from down that way so I think its more of a personal move rather than a financial one.

I wish him the best of luck but for one reason or another I don't think it worked out here, I personally thought he would go on to try and get a freekick or penalty as he would go down almost straight away.

Was he not getting regular starts over White at the start of the season?

Kelty will be one of the favourites for the lowland league next year but East Kilbride will be there or there abouts as well. I just wish Bonnyrigg were accepted in after winning promotion from the East of Scotland, another side that would have been able to challenge the front runners. Unfortunately as they currently don’t have floodlights they aren’t allowed up, even though they will have them in place for the start of next season and there is currently teams in the same division without floodlights! Thought we had it unfair?

Even getting players from League One. I'll need to keep a eye on the lowland league next season.

"While he admits the offer from Kelty was a good one financially, Austin has also resumed his old job as a driver/ground-worker."

I see Darren O Dea has cancelled retirement plans to join East Kilbride.
