Colin Slater is delighted to yet again have Mark Weir on board for the Rovers as we head into the new season.

As Mark Weir goes into his 18th year as a Carluke Rovers player, our manager had the following to say about him:-

It is a remarkable achievement and commitment from Mark to have served 18 consecutive years at the Rovers.

I cannot think of anybody in my long junior career who comes close to that service, the nearest probably big Starky who was 13 years at Lanark.

Mark is still a key player and a massive part of our plans and will always cause opponents problems with his “wand” of a left foot and it’s a luxury for our strikers to be on the end his perfect deliveries, not forgetting his dead ball qualities.

Looking forward to season 18 at the Rovers Weiry and long may it continue.
