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

    Fantastic result today A world class free kick from Halliday then goals from McDonald darn maguire and another berto free kick had us 4-0 up at the break and for that 15-20 spell we were as good as I have seen us . Passing movement finishing we had it all. Second half saw EK to there credit come out and try and restore some pride and a mini revival looked on the cards as they fought back to 4-2 but superb play from craig and a exquisite finish from darn maguire made it and 5 then McDonald with a cute finish made it 6 but EK pulled back a consolation to make the final score 6-3 candy . 9 goals a world class free kick and some lovely football on a real heavy leg sapping pitch all for a fiver. If carlsberg made football matches it still would not be as good as a day out at James mcgrory park

    A word of praise for the referee today who allowed for common sense and understanding to ensure game went ahead today . 9.00 game virtually off but he allowed big ken and billy time to work on the pitch given the weather and temperature was rapidly improving so called for 11 30 inspection by which time after hard work and good fortune weather wise the pitch was fine to play the match .
  3. St Roch's F.C. 2017-2018

    10.20 game in doubt as club tweeted 11.30 pitch inspection then word came through game on. So got out of bed and started to get prepared for a trip on the garngad express to JMP then came an unexpected text 12.30 another pitch inspection and I felt that knot in my stomach that has been far too familiar this season game off but due to a shite bus service a decision had to be made take the chance and gamble against the odds or stick and go plan another adventure for my Saturday afternoon. A quick look outside and the ray of winter sunshine blasting into my living room convinced me to go get the garngad express so 1.15 found me at the depot for the bus and the text came through " GAME ON " My gamble had paid off and I skipped on the bus with an extra bounce in my step . As I reached the famous old ground and exchanged greetings and handshakes with the candy faithful in the glorious sunshine I was confident candy could bounce back from last week's shocker at the shire . The game started brightly for candy and despite never upping the gear they looked comfortable and it felt it would only be a matter of time before we made the break through and around the half hour mark it duly came thanks to a neat finish from McDonald. Candy had a logan goal disallowed right on the stroke of half time but without the aid of television replays I have no idea if it was the correct decision or not . Second half continued in the same vein with candy comfortable and Lesmahagow offering little another offside goal this time from martin looked the wrong decision from my vantage point but the ref without the aid of linesman is never gonna get everything correct . A daw penalty made 2-0 candy and that was the cue for Lesmahagow to give up the ghost It was now a matter of how many and a lovely individual finish by rab maguire from great team work and a nice finish from craig put the icing on the candy cake . 4-0 FT Comfortable victory and a bit of redemption for last week . As the fans started to head towards the club house and the exits news came through Rossvale had lost 1-0 which completed a perfect day in the garden of God as that result means we are back in the title race tho points in the bag are always better than games in hand . Next week should see a much sterner test as face glencairn in the cup but one game at a time sweet candy someone once sang so we will worry about that next week For now we will enjoy our Saturday in the knowledge that to quote some poster last week " the candy bubble ain't bust yet ".

    Has the bubble burst ? Certainly not As a club we growing by the week and the committee are working tirelessly to ensure they keep taking the club forward. On the pitch I think it's clear we are not as good a side as last season but if we can just hit a wee run of form then we will be in the mix for promotion come the run in . Yesterday tbh was as poor a performance I have witnessed since early season thrashing at Cambuslang and Wishaw but it's how you react to these kind of results which is important and we need a big performance and result now at Lesmahagow on Saturday.

    Not changed that much that your still nowhere near playing in pollok [emoji23][emoji23] I used to live in pollok and it would take around 20 odd mins to walk from the pollok centre to shawlands so maybe I should complete in the next commonwealth games
  7. Fluid Fans?

    Pollok play in shawlands which is a good 20 minute walk from the pollok housing scheme .
  8. Freebies for the committee

    Asking folk to buy a place on the committee is certainly not the way I would run my football club For me it's the best qualified person for whatever role regardless of your financial situation and if you can afford to buy yourself onto the committee then you can afford to pay at the gate
  9. Freebies for the committee

    I actually do help at my club in many different ways so I know that some guys do an absolutely fantastic job but I also know how hard it is for clubs to get by. I'm very proud to say at my club all our committee are season ticket holders. I have no idea our uptake at away games as tbh it's none of my business but I can tell you my terrace buddy who is on our committee pays into every away game .
  10. Freebies for the committee

    Absolutely m8 I saw folk pulling out there card for admission to a friendly so not to pay a couple of quid gate money which was really just to pay for the ref and wash the kit .
  11. Freebies for the committee

    Let's not get silly I'm not asking for players to be charged that's just nonsense But I don't think anyone should get in free at any game just cos your on a committee after all its only £6 which is roughly the price of a pint but like I said £1220 per season is a hellva lot ah money to clubs that are struggling to survive .
  12. Freebies for the committee

    Yes jim quick count based on 20 games ( league and cup ) at 6 per head if you combine your own and away committees not paying then each club losing just under 2.5k per season A sobering though when money is tight at many clubs
  13. Freebies for the committee

    Given that most junior sides survive on a very limited budget is it time to end this practice of up to I believe 12 committee members getting into games for free ?

    No fear you will see a massive away support when the candy roll into town for the cup tie vs Auchenleck. We always travel in good numbers so make sure there is enough pies beers and teas to keep the candy faithful in good spirits Thanks [emoji38]

    A very fair assessment of the day
