    New date for final league fixture: We would like to clarify our position and the reasons for the revised fixture date for our final league game of the season to ensure complete transparency. We had originally (for a number of reasons) rejected a request from Port Glasgow to move the fixture from the Saturday 19th May date set by the West Region, the main ones being that we always endeavor to play every game on the date given to us and we have ourselves had to fulfil tough fixtures over the last few weeks with several players missing. After some dialogue, we were then advised on Saturday 12th May by the West Region that the fixture will go ahead as planned and we therefore continued with all our plans and preparations to host on the 19th. On Tuesday 15th we received further communication from the West Region that Port Glasgow were unable to field a team on the 19th, therefore the game would be forfeited, with 3 points and a 3-0 victory being awarded to us, hence crowning us league champions. Our team manager together with our committee immediately rejected this proposal as it does not conform to our values as a club and we feel it is not good sportsmanship to win a league title in this manner after what has been a long, exciting and highly competitive season. After meeting to discuss possible options to fulfill the fixture and a lot of negotiating to ensure all the fundamentals for a match day could be in place we proposed a revised date of Friday 18th at 7.30pm, and despite a number of hurdles and several aspects not being ideal for us as a club, not to mention some additional costs, we feel playing the game is the only possible solution to ensure the integrity of the league is upheld. To confirm – Our final fixture goes ahead at Huntershill on Friday 18th May with a 7.30pm kick off.
  2. Central 1st Division 2017-18

    A tremendous league this season and shows how well us lower division clubs can perform week in and out. There has been some terrific fixtures been and gone. And several more to encounter before it all finishes. The vales games vs shotts were sore ones. Then we had a 9 man last minute loss to the candy. Then of course we took a last minute point off the bens. Last two fixtures were massive for us away to Neilston and wishaw. Not lose either of these were very important but of course one win at either would have gave us a bit more breathing space, for a couple of days anyway. Best team against ourselves has to be shotts, nullified our midfield and forward line simple. Good luck to all the teams for their remaining fixtures this will run on for several weeks yet I am afraid.

    Can’t force people to come and watch it’s a choice thing. We will just get on with the job in hand. Either way makes no difference to the club we can’t rely on support flocking to our games. Would be good if the local community got involved more but hey ho good Will to all men and all that. [emoji1335]🥂
  7. Greenock -Rossvale

    Not the best of games and it was a late switch around fixture wise. Absolutely freezing so don’t blame people staying away. And xmas shopping I am sure. But great 3 pts for the vale. Top of the pile going into the xmas and new year break. Really can’t ask for anything more from the management and squad.
