  1. AVERAGE CROWDS in Lowland League

    I think another couple of thousand were in the Celtic end, hiding the claret & blue, quietly supporting their big team

    So you missed a 5-0 win in the Challenge Cup in 2003. We won a league cup game 3-0 at ours in 2007 and whitewashed them in the league that season for a final tally of P6, W6, F23, A2.

    Definitely Oakley if you've ever been there. I had a look at Google maps which is maybe where your confusion comes from. The 1:50000 OS map is much clearer. I think the Blair Burn is possibly the boundary anyway.

    Think the pub scenes were in Creetown though. But there were locations all over the place including up north.

  9. Toilet roll consumption query

    Do keep up, it was 6. At this rate we'll have to stop buying them and just use the divots the Spartans players kick up every time we play them.
  10. 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.
