  1. Ex Armadale thistle. Tell you whit ti dae :-)
  2. strange
  3. This must have been before my time and I'm five years on the committee. Never heard of any these suggestions and I attend every meeting off the Club. Anyway another post made up to hijack the agenda. Put it on the community club section of pie and bovril.
  4. As one of the so called spivs that spends dozens of hours per week working to ensure the town of Armadale has a junior football club, I find it offensive to state the volley is a ruin, in actual fact it is probably the best pavilion in Armadale and far from the worse in junior football, recent memory serves me that the wood Park pavilion ( a superb modern changing facility) was recently closed to renew the floors. A small band off volunteers work tirelessly in Armadale and to be constantly told the place should be demolished is a bit disheartening. if the people who volunteer services at the club were to actually turn up.and do the work the place may look a bit better, as of the now it's Armadale only junior ground and that's how it will be for the foreseeable. Good idea pie n beans but doesn't fit into the only show in town idea rammed down everyone's throat. I used to be open minded but not anymore.
  5. OBVIUOSLY it's only your opinion that counts. Why weren't Armadale thistle football club never invited to the table until it became clear huge funding could be obtained thru the clubs volunteer park. The club have been in Armadale 82 years. ARMADALE THISTLE WILL PROSPER AS THEY HAVE BEFORE. And for the record Broxburn is probably the worst playing surface in junior football. Just ask any junior club. ATTEND THE AGM AND HAVE YOUR SAY.
  6. The Club understands that a good youth set up would only benefit the club. However the current West Lothian league doesn't go to under 21's which is one of the reasons we feel for kids leaving football late teens. It would also benefit youth teams if a pathway to junior football were available and possibly encourage teams to keep going to under 17's 19's etc. The history surrounding volunteer park should be a selling point for Armadale clubs. All the visitors to the volley are mesmerised by Armadale great history. A rebuilding programme for the club is about to get underway and we encourage anybody with an interest in the club to attend the AGM.
  7. Not the best season for the dale. But rebuilding all aspects off the Club are underway. The clubs AGM is the 28 this month in the pavilion at 12:15. Feel free to attend and give the club your views,.as for standing still that is far from position the club are in. Again attend the AGM and listen to what the club plan for the future.
  8. It's understandable that clubs on the up like Blackburn are going to be disappointed if there is any reconstruction. I personally think the fans should be asked for there opinions.travelling is a big issue not just the cost but the time spent on match days by committees, coaches and players. As you say Tuesday evening will clear up how junior football will be contested in the East.
  9. Your HOAT. Take off your maroon tinted glasses. Near ripped the strip of the dale player. Sub 15 elbowed Armadale 5 in box. Keeper kicked in head. Hope yeez get staoted aff Bathgate yeez are honking. N managers a complete tadger.
  10. Decent performance from the dale. Laughable that Armadale keeper sent off for hand sign, when ARNISTON manager abused opposition players all game ( as usual) and nothing was done by ref. Also deliberate kick at stand in keeper and deliberate elbow on dale centre back resulted in no action from referee. All that's wrong with football. Deliberately trying to cause injury should receive harsher punishment than sticking up the vickies. DALE AWAY TO FORFAR NEXT WEEK...... UNBELIEVABLE 3 LONG JOURNEYS IN A MONTH..
  11. Very long deal deal for a player who historicaly last no more than half a season. Didn't really get going at Armadale. Seldom at training. Part of the famous nine nothing team.
  12. armadale thistle have placed Lewis Milton on the transfer list. Interested parties should contact club secretary Scott Watson on [email protected] Lewis is based near airdrie
  13. It's so Chris can spend more time watching his beloved rangers on a Saturday.
  14. Armadale Thistle have placed defender kieran brennan on the transfer list. Interested clubs should contact club secretary Scott Watson through email [email protected]
  15. True or not true. There are no clubs over fifteen years off age... What happened to the girls team? Great to see so many kids involved but after a point the interest seems to go ( not only in Armadale but Throughout) football needs a good juvenile league system that takes the players right upto adult ( and therefor junior) football. I'm sure young men would rather play at a juvenile club that gives them the chance off junior football rather than pub league football.
