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

    Well Saturday came and at the crack of dawn I was ready and prepared to catch the 1920 SRSC to Uddingston to see candy v thorniewood but the best laid plans came unstuck when just as the referee drove into the thorniewood car park Uddingston was hit by an unsuspecting artic iceblast rendering the pitch unplayable. A decision was to be made either back to bed to catch up on some much needed beauty sleep or face a day shopping for ladies shoes with the Mrs that decision was never made as while in mid deliberation I heard a beep checked the message and it read like beautiful poetry PETERSHILL @ JMP . So now Saturday morning had became derby day ( the battle of the north ) time for a quick cuppa then jump 2 buses and reach the theatre of dreams in time to help out on gate and get the flag of war up in its usual postion to welcome our rivals to the home of the rightful king's of the north . The weather took a turn for the worse and conditions became horrible and the pitch very heavy as became very clear that winter was not only coming but had firmly arrived in the north east of Glasgow. The first half saw peasy show why they are a top super league one side as they bossed the match and created the better of the chances and controlled the tempo of the match but we managed to get in at half time level thanks mainly to the aptly named John stark who kept the house of peasy at bay . The second half was far better from the candy as they managed to get a foothold in the game and only some poor finishing and bad luck stopped the house of candy taking victory in the 2018 battle of the north. Both sides retreated back to the warmth of the dressing room happy in the knowledge that neither had lost the battle and hostilities would be resumed on another day between now and august. Overall from a candy viewpoint it was a good run out against tough opposition and the gaffer would have been delighted to have seen the return of his captain ( Carter ) , naismith, Danny and tj from injury and saw them come through in a game where no quarter was asked or given . Thanks must be given to both clubs for arranging the game at such short notice and giving the fans there candy fix for the week.

    Can't imagine any of us other than the old boys will be in the seated area . Never been to beechwood before is there a traditional away end ?

    Pie and bovril was once described to me by a wise old fox as an argument in the pub with a drunk guy It does not matter how much you reason with them there minds and opinions won't change . That was borne out earlier this season when a Rossvale fan came on here and accused us of kicking down a fence and steaming in over the turnstiles . Every man and his dug came on here to give there two bobs worth and slate the fans and the club but the reality was we NEVER even entered the ground to watch the match never mind steam the turnstiles so view us like a blank canvas look forward to meeting passionate fans like yourself and enjoy a good cup tie rather than listening to the sweetie wife's and begrudgers on here .

    St Rochs fans are fantastic I don't believe we have an unsavoury eliment or had fans who show bad sportsmanship What you find when we come down to beechwood is a large Colourful and passionate support who enjoy some good craic and a laugh. People who slate the candy usually have a hidden agenda and you would need to ask them why a little old team from the garngad gets under there skin so much .

    Yesterday was a funny old game as they say 1st half we lacked probably everything you could mention needed to win a football match but second half was an improvement and the team never gave up and were rewarded with all 3 pts for there efforts . At 3-4 bens missed an absolute sitter from some horrific defending which would have sealed the game for them and bens themselves probably need to ask themselves how they never saw the game out 2-4 they were in easy street but soon as it went 3-4 they started to get edgy and stopped doing everything good they had done up until that stage and once we equalised then there was only ever gonna be one winner it was just a case of could we create one last chance before the ref blew for full time and thankfully we did . We need to stop giving away cheap goals and making games hard for ourselves but on the other hand the team deserve great credit for a never say attitude . 3 pts is 3 pts regardless and was a big win yesterday as we cut the gap on the top two so roll on thorniewood away next Saturday

    I think the ray of light regarding the indiscipline of team was that we never got anyone sent off yesterday and that allowed us to continue working hard and gave us a platform to go and win the game . Too often this season we have had players sent off or even 2 sent off so it was a relief to keep 11 on the pitch especially when the game was going against us .
  12. Junior Club allegiances (Or lack of)

    I ended up following st rochs out of what can only be described as fate . A very close friend of mine passed away suddenly and quite young also leaving a young family behind so a group of us where trying to think up a few ways to raise some money to help out the family and since my friend had been a keen amateur footballer a football match was suggested and agreed . Despite not being anyway local to st rochs they had been approached and had agreed to let us use the ground for the memorial match . We raised a good few bob and in the days after that I thought about there kindness and support so I decided to give something back and go watch them on the opening day of the season. I turned up on my own but by the end of the game I had met and spoke to a few folk and had enjoyed the day out so decided i would head back again and the rest is history . I now help with the supporters bus, the merchandise and yesterday I was even on the gate to help out . I absolutely love following the club have met some smashing folk along the way and rediscovered my love for football where you are no longer just a seat number but whatever you want to be as at junior level every club needs folk that will just lend a hand and help the club in whatever way possible.
  13. Fixtures and season end

    I think we piss him off by just being st rochs lol
  14. Fixtures and season end

    It was possible archie Rossvale have played 5 more league games than st rochs The fixture man has selected Rossvale v glasgow perthshire for that week and st rochs a free week ( 3rd this season ) Surely it would have made more sense to have st rochs playing glasgow perthshire and giving Rossvale a free week so that others can catch up on games played
