  1. Central league division 2

    Indeed not.
  2. Central league division 2

    Of all the weekends to miss - Lanark 12 Newmains 0 Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia Dortmund wasn't a bad substitute, I suppose.
  3. Central league division 2

    Did I hear correctly that Carluke have dispensed with the services of their management team?
  4. Central league division 2

    Vale of Leven 2 Lanark 2Our longest away league trip but I like watching games at this venue. Pitch was in great condition and my pie was good, served by a very nice lady..3rd draw on the bounce which will kill us, like last season.Nothing between teams in first 30 mins then we lost 2 stupid goals in 3 minutes and went downhill from there for next 10. Cat had to make a couple of good saves during this periodPulled one back on 40 mins following a great run a cross by Ronan Kearney and then went straight back up the park to miss an excellent chance although keeper saved well.46 minutes and they get a deserved straight red . All over them for a period and then we went flat. VoL did well and seemed to cope well with 10 men until an excellent and deserved equaliser on 77 mins.Should have killed them off but clearly didn’t and therefore VoL deserve credit for only losing one goal in the 2nd half . Our centre back Cammy Lawson got his 2nd(stupid) yellow for dissent after the final whistle and was shown a red. Madness. We can't afford his loss through suspension.Missing 2 key players but we remain mediocre in the main, with the capacity to be brilliant in flashes .
  5. Goals, & gossip. Saturday 07 Oct.

    He made absolutely no attempt to play the ball. Player bearing down on goal, albeit not last man. I suggest that it was the cynicism of the challenge that got him the red.
  6. Gartcairn Juniors 2017/18

    Excellent highlights. I thought your 2nd and our 3rd was offside but have changed my tune. The penalty we gave away and your 3rd are absolute howlers. Saw a post mentioning your keeper at our 2nd, which I didn't notice at the time but the guy on the post is as bad so maybe your keeper doesn't feel so bad! Love the pre and post match interview with your manager.
  7. "Given the fact Wishaw play in the central Scottish, the standard is pretty decent. Having played in the bottom level of junior football it's kick rush football and in my opinion don't feel Lanark is much of a step up in standard other than them having a lovely pitch." At the risk of opening old wounds, I have to say that Scott Schoneville has done extremely well in his 3 games since joining us. His debut was against the then league leaders Carluke. He played in a tough away fixture at St Ant and was as good as anyone, once again when he took on the current league leaders. The standard of play in all of the games, particularly both the home fixtures was high and he has more than held his own, despite not being used to playing at this level.

    Lanark have drawn with RA, Gartcairn and St Ant's and beaten Carluke and VoC who are all above us in the league. We haven't been playing particularly well. We still have to play 3 of the bottom 4. Just shows that there is all to play for.
  9. Lanark United 2017/18

    Lanark are definitely progressing under Paul and Craig from where they were at the start of the season. Word is that training has improved dramatically, which is good to hear. The return of Cameron Lawson is a boon. The young lad Scott Schoneville has been excellent, despite getting 2 yellows today. Peter O'Donnell is kicking on from last season. Had some good guys on the bench today. Still think we are a bit suspect at the back. Great to see Shug make another cameo appearance today. Big Shaun Gallagher getting fitter. He has a great touch and smashed in his penalty today against a big keeper. Young Ronan Kearney is a player although guilty today of shooting when his fellow striker was in a better position for a square ball. Hopefully he will learn. Sean McKenna getting back to fitness. He has been a loss in the past few games. We had a trialist who came on for 15 minutes at the end last week, lad with the hairdo. Any news on him? Finally, sorry to learn that our Player of the Year (IMO) Gareth Halford and the club have had a falling out. Worse still that he has signed for our nearest rivals Carluke. Clearly between the two parties but, will we get to hear what the problem was, if only the official version? Hopefully we will have some funds to invest. Not as despondent as I was. With most teams being able to beat the other on their day this division has lots of twists and turns ahead.
  10. Central league division 2

    I thought a draw was a fair result on balance. Both teams benefitted from dubious offside decisions at Gartcairn's 2nd and our 3rd. Our keeper, who played well, had a howler for Gartcairn's 3rd. I was impressed by the Gartcairn keeper. A big lad.
  11. How come no games scheduled for this date?
  12. Cambuslang Rangers 2017-18

    How has Hendo settled in?
  13. Central league division 2

    8 man VoC? Did they take the field with 8 men or did they have players sent off? If so, when and indeed why?
  14. Today's scores 23rd Sep

    St Ant's 2 Lanark 2
  15. Central league division 2

    St Ant's 2 Lanark 2 Lanark opened the scoring in 44 seconds. Beautiful through ball by the returning Cameron Lawson chased down and cut back by Ronan Kearney to be tucked away by a young trials ( he may be signed by now). Lead didn't last long as St Ant's equalised on 6 minutes and then took the lead on 34 minutes. Shaun Gallagher followed up last week's miss of the season with another howler before half time. He created a great chance for himself, rounded the keeper but put the ball wide of the post. Similar story in the 2nd half when he couldn't stretch far enough to make good contact with a great cut back. However, Shaun persevered and created another opening for himself which he tucked away with aplomb on 93 minutes to secure Lanark a deserved point. St Ant's also missed a sitter in the 2nd half.
