The Kitmart Dundee Stars are excited to begin our latest social media project to celebrate the club’s historic 20th season. Where you! The fans - get to choose who should be in our coveted all-time starting six line-up.

We start this week by asking you to vote for who should be starting in between the pipes and today’s article introduces you to the first four of the eight candidates selected by the club.

However, you can send in your own suggestions for other players we have not listed by using #StarsStartingSix.

Tomorrow, we will release information about our second set of candidates and your chance to make Stars history will begin on Friday when the first round of voting opens at 12 noon.

Depending on how many candidates make it into the vote, a certain number of goalies will move on into Saturday’s final vote but before then, we will be giving you some more information to help you make your pick.

So, lets meet the first four candidates that were standout shot-stoppers whilst wearing the Stars jersey.
