  1. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

  2. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

    Ok I’ll throw it out there. I love Baboucarr. A genuinely nice big lad, who I got along with fantastically well. He’d often enquire about my kids and my well being...in a way that a lot of folk don’t, genuine. He’s a fantastically gifted individual, brim full of confidence in himself...and was part of my own history of St Roch’s, which also will mean I retain a whole lot of affection...same goes for all the lads who grabbed that last day promotion. My favourite 2 moments, where his last minute wonder goal away to Maryhill...to win the game. The second, his 2 goals vs Johnstone Burgh, not even the goals in fact, his celebrations...total joy with th supporters. Was great to see. It’s quite sad his departure coincides with his fathers death...his emotions must be all over the shot. I think he had some growing up to do. He seemed to get involved in hassles on and off the pitch, with his own team mates and opposition. He also wasn’t the consistent of players. I’ve seen folk telling me he was the best striker at the club...as fact. Sure if that’s yer opinion, but the stats don’t back this up. I think if he gets his head into what he wants to do football wise, he can reach for the stars. I haven’t seen Perthshire, so can’t tell you should he be a good signing for them or if he’ll fit. I’ll miss him personally and the St Roch’s squad is weaker without him, but i feel after the recent transfers...we’re a better team.

    Big week passed for the Candy. After the last 2 weeks....we havent been good never mind great. So on the back of that improbably point vs Yoker...we go an make 3 signings. 1. Ryan McManus - Signing from Albion Rovers. Dont know much about the youngster tbh, i'm led to believe he's a forward who is happy to play in midfield. Be interesting to see how he goes 2. Reece Glackin - Have heard in passing he has came through a bad injury spell and has signed from Edinburgh City...holding midfielder going by his debut as a trialist...and a very good one at that on early inspection. Just what we need 3. Robert Maguire - A real shame that he hasnt had an opportunity to show KRR what he is made off, as even despite his return, i think he is a very impressive player...so its with that, i have to say, i'm delighted to have him back. All weak areas in the team the now, so here;s hoping each hit the ground running and we start playing how we should be soon enough. Welcome lads

    A musical and factual inaccuracy if we’re being serious!

    Well done Candy. Did we deserve the point, you could argue we deserved all three, an conversely, we didn’t deserve anything. After last weeks awful performance...I felt we came out to prove a point, and once again looked toothless...whilst Yoker looked clinical and resolute. I dare say Yoker May feel that they were more than a counter attack side, but that’s how I seen it. Their first came from our corner (fuckin header it son)...their second and third, from breaks after concerted Roch spells. Special note to their keeper who made an outstanding one handed save from a Kieran Martin header...amazing. However, a late goal from centre back Paul Tierney, in the 88th minute gave some light...a goal from either Aaron Millar or Danny Irvine (1 of the shots were given as crossing the line)...set up Jordy Logan to level on the 94th minute. I feel we have been at our best this season, on the counter...so when the opposition look to contain an counter, we have struggled and we haven’t been able to break down...until 88 mins of this game. I’d be more content if we had a notable system, but the summer signings have changed our play so much, I’m not sure we have settled at all. I think a draw was fair, Yoker were excellent at the back for most and hit on the break expertly well. But I felt mugged at times and if nothing else, we showed a set of balls. I’m hearing of some transfer movement in the next week... will be interesting to see what happens...today could be a firework to re-kickstart the season. Well done gents...Newmains up next.

    Wonder where Rossvale will turn after this?

    What this needs if serious, is a larger scale version of what Chris an Mark done for the kits. A working committee whose whole purpose is to raise funds.... As yer man above has stated, you can’t take working capital from the club, it needs to be new funds...on the same idea, these fund raised needs to be taken away from the club...as not to be used for other things (which happens when looking short term). The committee would look to grants, fundraisers, begging letters...all with the sole intention of raising the set amount to get the job done.

    Wishaw 5 : St Roch’s 1 That was rough to take and I was only on the side. St Roch’s terrible Wishaw brilliant Wishaw clinical St Roch’s missing chances Goalkeeping great Goalkeeping bad All of that mixed up culininated in an embarrassing result. Dunno how I feel about it yet....
  10. Wishaw v St Roch's

    Only 3 games on in the Central First this weekend, with all 3 being relatively decent games...Neilston hosting the Bens, and Port Glasgow entertaining the Vics...but (obviously biased) my eye is on teh Wishaw v St Roch's match. Wishaw have had the better of the Candy in recent times , in the last 2 seasons, Wishaw have won both matches at the Beltane (3 if you include the abandoned match) and drawn and lost 2-1 at James McGrory Park, which as i recall, we were delighted to take the points that day. They have a certain style with made our side uncomfortable and even the 3-3 game last season, Wishaw were 3 up at half time. However, both sides have had a bit of a upheaval in the summer. The Candy have reshaped almost their whole team, whilst the Wishaw manager has departed. I am nervous about the encounter but encouraged that we are starting to see a team taking shape...how has Wishaw coped with their managerial change and did any players follow him? Opinions on the match please?
  11. I'm surprised by this? On two fronts. I had players freely approached to leave and approached players, constantly throughout my time coaching in amateur football....be it pubs, clubs or even after games. I thought the amateur status lend itself to this. As for players invited to go Junior, i didn't think there would be much problems....always wanted my players to better themselves, However, as i knew it was the norm...doesn't make that necessarily correct. Can i ask what are you expecting compensation wise? You dont pay the player do you?

    Match highlights from Saturdays win over Port Glasgow **no manager reaction due to the incident after the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2OboyhOhSg

    Unfortunately, we, more specifically, the Port Glasgow team, were victims of a theft. Frustratingly it seems we have been victims of an opportunity theft. We usually have a steward on the doors to dressing rooms to allow players quick entry and exit, but he was on holiday...and we have maybe been a bit blasé about security due to no incidents of this nature on match days. Phones, wallets, cards and money were stolen. Unfortunately there are elements of all communities and societies that let us all down, like our numerous break ins over the years. However, action was taken by the Port lads themselves along with members of St Roch's players, supporters club and committee, and all phones and cards were recovered...I'm led to believe that all monies have been reimbursed. So a satisfactory end for a very un-savoury, embarrassing and dangerous incident. The club will be making changes this week to ensure this cannot happen again. Our sincerest apologies to all at Port Glasgow.

    Others have succinctly lauded the efforts of the club. I think the over riding factor, is the open minded approach of willing volunteers. Since i have been involved, the old adage of "thats how its always been done" attitude has dissipated quite rapidly, replaced with the more helpful "why not" look on things. The are of which the club is situated in, isn't the most affluent by any stretch and has felt somewhat left out, with regards regeneration over the years (or so i am told) so it has very much imo, kept its community feel much more to where i am from. So the connect between the club and community is still there, despite maybe an element of separation over the years previous. Very much a look after the community and the community will reward you. Maintaining that connect is hard, especially when you consider the standard of player (and obvious outgoings) have gone up, so its not always perfect, but if the effort is there, then that is good. The manager however, is again imo, absolutely huge and the catalyst in the turn around. His enthusiasm, his contacts, his passion and drive...i really hope we can put something in place to allow the club to be sustainable, but the day he decides he is done with it, will be a massive loss.
