When Falkirk were relegated in 2019, there was the expectation that they would rapidly return to the Championship, but despite boasting a full-time team, they have thus far failed horribly to live up to their means. Indeed, last season the Bairns missed out on the playoff entirely, going on a dreadful run of form at the end of the season as they lost five of their last six games and won just one of their last eight. Changes were no surprise, then, with Paul Sheerin the man taking charge of the Bairns and a turnover of playing staff that has so far seen 15 players depart and nine arrive. Falkirk can be pleased to have retained the services of Callumn Morrison, who was their top scorer from the wing last season, although he went off the boil towards the end of the campaign, like much of the squad. In truth, much of the squad was expendable otherwise as they failed entirely to live up to expectations. It is expected that Falkirk will attack this season with a new attitude. The big names that they previously boasted have largely been dispensed with. Jaime Wilson is an interesting arrival from Dumbarton, where he had an impressive campaign, adding to a forward line that boasts Anton Dowds and Aidan Keena, two players often started of service last season. The midfield should remain creative this season. Craig McGuffie has arrived from Morton along with colleague Aidan Nesbitt, while the arrival of Seb Ross is one that could quietly be impressive. It is the defensive where there are the biggest question marks. Right-back Ryan Williamson was disappointing for Partick after impressing with Dunfermline, while Leon McCann is a young arrival on the left to rival Paul Dixon. In the heart of the defence, Brad McKay is a strong arrival from Inverness, but more is needed from Ben Hall alongside him. This was an area that was too weak last season. Falkirk should be well supported but equally things could quickly turn sour as this is a frustrated fanbase that has grown used to far better.

Target


Nothing short of promotion will be acceptable. The squad looks capable of achieving it but is not outstanding and is arguably in its weakest state since their relegation.

Season Review
2020/2021

№5: Falkirk

Unquestionably no side suffered as disappointing a campaign as Falkirk, who finished an embarrassing fifth in League One, having been one of the favourites to win the title. Certainly, with the squad that they possessed, they should have finished at least second. Mistakes had started to be made at the end of last season, though. The management duo of Lee Miller and David McCracken, who had proven to be incompetent last term were retained. Initially, with Partick floundering, they were made to look better than they are. Falkirk won six of their opening eight matches of the season, though only two of these came against teams that would finish in the top five, while there was also an ominous 1-1 home draw against a Forfar side that finished bottom. Things started to fall apart shortly before Christmas with a 1-0 loss to Airdrie. Then followed a draw with Airdrie and a loss away to East Fife. It seemed that the shutdown had come at the right time, especially when they started with wins over Montrose and Falkirk. Their fixture list was light compared to some clubs and full-time status should have played into their hands, but a succession of poor results ultimately saw the managers sacked and Gary Holt put in charge. The momentum against Falkirk, though, was too great. They took only one point from their last six matches. They will struggle to reflect on any positives from the campaign. An experienced squad should have achieved far better, with their management teams unable to find a way to unlock packed defences. Big changes should be expected in the summer. The playing staff have shown they cannot be relied upon, while a new manager is required to get Falkirk back to where they should be.
