  1. Rutherglen Glencairn 2017-18

    True, but the young lad showed a lot of potential today. Gary Smith scored one today but he should have had about four.
  2. Rutherglen Glencairn 2017-18

    It was imperative to win today after a good win last week, and with a lot of our promotion rivals winning as well. We should have had the game tied up in the first quarter and nearly paid the price, but we got there in the end. Very impressed with Maryhill's lone striker Ciaran Smith today.

    Rutherglen Glencairn 3 (Smith, McKay, McNab) Maryhill 2 (Marenghi, McGillion (penalty)). Pictures and full match report to follow.
  4. Kirkintilloch Rob Roy New Stadium

    Unfortunately it looks like Rob Roy are becoming the Clyde of the junior scene, desperate to return to their home town but just can't seem to make it happen.
  5. The annual West Region midweek mayhem

    The thread isn't about Fixtures Man. It's about the date of the start of the midweek fixtures.

  11. Darvel Juniors 2017/18

    See this "tell me we never deserved to win the game" stuff - at what point did football not become a game of scoring more goals than your opponents ? Defending and goalkeeping is as much a part of an overall team performance as scoring goals. Darvel could only find their way past the Glencairn defence once, and Glencairn found their way past the Darvel defence twice. Goals are what count so, to answer your question, no you didn't deserve to win the game. Being honest, I wouldn't have grumbled with a draw, but we got the penalty near the end and defended well after that. Blaming the decision for the first penalty is a red herring, as your own bench admitted quite openly that was balanced out by the honkin' decision to disallow a Glencairn goal for offside just after half time. I know Darvel had a goal disallowed as well, but nobody complained about that at the time, it seemed clear cut, whereas nobody thought our disallowed goal was offside. So it's swings and roundabouts. It's the old Tommy Burns complaint about Celtic v Rangers at the time he was manager when Celtic used to dominate Old Firm games and Rangers won with breakaway goals. "If only they didn't have Andy Goram." But they did have Goram, he was as much a part of the team performance as Laudrup was at the other end. Creating chances and not scoring doesn't mean that you deserve to win a game. Scoring more goals than the opposition is what it's about.
  12. Tell me about it. We play Maryhill next week, then we have a fortnight with no league fixtures just as the better weather is hopefully coming in.
  13. Darvel Juniors 2017/18

    The question has to be asked - how on earth was Darvel's no.6 not given at least a 2nd yellow card for his tackle for the 2nd penalty ? He had been booked at the first penalty, but surely that's at least a 2nd yellow for the 2nd penalty as well ?
  14. It's really tight, but it always is in this league. We've moved ourselves into a good position and are looking to climb further, but we're very aware that the four teams directly below us will fancy their chances as well. The midweek mayhem starts soon, so that'll see a few surprising results due to squad issues. Nobody will be taking anything for granted yet, except for the two promotion certainties Petershill and Cambuslang Rangers.
  15. Best/worst grounds in junior football history.

    Don't stand at the corner behind the goal then ! [emoji16]
