  1. ADL Season 17/18

    A lot of chat in this thread has been based around the teams at the top end of the table but going by some recent results I've seen, I think Saltcoats (at their own pitch) seem to be showing that they could have a say towards the final positions of those battling for promotion. Seems to be proving a hard place to go.
  2. ADL Season 17/18

    I don’t think they actually have an outright ‘manager’, think the 4 guys take the team. From the outside looking in seems to be a good dynamic between them.
  3. ADL Season 17/18

    I previously said that I fully expected their bubble to burst, might have to retract that statement. They do however still have to play each of the teams around them again. I’ve only seen them in a couple of games but the young lads Greg & Lloyd appear to be the ones taking the team from what I’ve seen of them around the dug out. Whatever the management team & committee are doing fair play to them & wish them all the best.
  4. ADL Season 17/18

    I was surprised with the Ardrossan Winton score at the weekend, said on a previous post that I thought they'd fid their rhythm and go on for automatic promotion. Obviously still in a good position to do so but didn't think they would make it so hard for themselves. @Seaside Sam Dalry are only 3/4 games behind the majority of teams and with the recent weather issues a number of teams are going to find themselves with the same fixture backlog problem. Looking at the teams in the top half with this issue I think Dalry & Irvine Vics have more about them to deal with this issue than Craigmark will.
  5. Whitletts Manager

    When are the interviews taking place? Exciting prospect in my opinion for whoever is appointed.
  6. Whitletts Manager

    You don't think so?
  7. Whitletts Manager

    Haha thanks Lineo, I suppose I just like some reassurance to the information I've been told.
  8. Whitletts Manager

    The applications to date, as far as I've heard have been from: Iain Patterson with John Redmond Mick McCann Paul Cameron with Jamie McCrae Johnny Bailie with George Wallace I imagine that the list would be longer than that though.
  9. Whitletts Manager

    Has anybody heard anything, either rumoured or concrete as to who the new manager will be? Not seen much of the team on my travels this year, and as a result I'm not very aware of their squad, but surely with the infrastructure this club has in place it would be an exciting opportunity to develop this club and at the very least win promotion next season.
  10. Cumnock v Auchinleck 4th Round Scottish Cup

    Looking forward to this. My favourite Scottish derby. Any neutrals looking for a match to attend I thoroughly recommend.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Would it not be beneficial for the progression of Scottish football as a whole if their was the pathway in place from junior to League 2, as the English conference does. i do feel that the professional structure is all wrong in its current model. No need for as many divisions as there is.
  12. ADL Season 17/18

    I was told today by a committee member today that Iain Patterson of Craigmark has applied for the post with John Redmond being part of his management team. Not a Craigmark supporter but sad to hear this given how well the proverbial underdogs have been performing this season.
  13. Girvan Job

    Just heard Gallagher from Craigmark who played with Girvan has been offered the job to do it with Lawrie Dinwoodie who’s there just now as acting manager. Anybody else heard? Is this true?
  14. What game are we going to today ?

    Thinking of going along to the Lugar game this Saturday (if it’s on) as the welcome Linlithgow Rose. Has anybody seen how Lugar are playing this season?
  15. Auchinleck Vs Cumnock

    Was a great game for the neutral today, thoroughly enjoyed it. Well played both teams, gave everything today as you’d expect in this fixture.
