  1. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    I was there when Whitehill's capacity was set. Although the SFA guys visited for the license, it was actually 2 guys from Midlothian Council who set the capacity. They had never done a football ground before as there were no other licensed clubs in Midlothian. They allocated 700 to the uncovered terracing and the covered terrace would've been similar except it was recently seated so it was about 130. However for the grass banks they allocated only 2 rows of spectators all the way round even though one goes back pretty far. final capacity 2640. Previously it was always reported as 4000.

  5. Teachers of P&B

    I taught maths for 31 years. Surds is just the icing on the cake for people wanting an 'A' pass (if such a thing still exists). Higher is all about factorising. If you can't factorise, forget it.

  7. Inverness v Queens

    Shame QOSTV couldn't film from the west side for whatever reason. Mind you it would only show how empty the main stand was. Shame they couldn't find room for Dobbie's free kick in the 15 mins though
