  2. Sauchie v Troon Spartans v Syngenta University of Stirling v Hurlford United Beith v Bo'ness United Linlithgow Rose v Blantyre Victoria Civil Service Strollers v Jeanfield Swifts Renfrew v Bo'ness Athletic Cumbernauld United v Petershill Arthurlie v Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic Caledonian Braves v Drumchapel United Vale of Leven v Thorniewood United Clydebank v Pollok Maybole v Darvel/Cambuslang Rangers Dundonald Bluebell v Tranent Irvine Meadow v Auchinleck Talbot Cumbernauld Colts v East Kilbride
  3. Very predictable tbh... "televising every tie could squeeze some more £ from the pips"? e.g. Fri night/Sat lunchtime/Sat teatime/Sun afternoon/Sun teatime/Mon night?
  4. Egypt 0-0 Qatar (aet, 5-6p) Tunisia 0-2 Algeria (aet) Hosts finish 3rd after 120mins and penalties in bronze playoff. Shock result in the Final as Algeria score on 99mins and 120+5mins to win... Majid Bougherra manages his nation to a world title.
  5. Saturday 18th December 2021 Blackburn United 1-3 Jeanfield Swifts Broxburn Athletic V-V Tynecastle Camelon V-V Crossgates Primrose Dunbar United 2-1 Sauchie Lothian Thistle HV 1-0 Dundonald Bluebell Musselburgh Athletic 0-6 Linlithgow Rose Penicuik Athletic 2-2 Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts Whitehill Welfare V-V Hill of Beath Hawthorn Penicuik held. Linlithgow emphatically go 2nd. LTHV and Dunbar secure important wins. Due to the Christmas break there are no more games until 3 weeks time; except for the New Year derbies which have ended up here, there and everywhere. So with 61% of games completed a good opportunity to reflect on the standings. Penicuik remain top but Linlithgow on an incredible run are only 3pts behind, with Tranent another 2pts back. Title looks between this triumvirate. Bottom end sees 5 struggling pegs trying to fit 1 round hole, but handful above could yet be dragged-in.
  6. Saturday 18th December 2021 Arniston Rangers P-P Coldstream Dalkeith Thistle P-P Haddington Athletic Kirkcaldy & Dysart P-P Dunipace Ormiston V-V Rosyth St Andrews United 4-3 Edinburgh United Thornton Hibs V-V Craigroyston Tweedmouth Rangers P-P Leith Athletic St Andrews renaissance continues. Arniston and Dalkeith frozen; Kirkcaldy fogbound; Tweedmouth match ref felt pitch unplayable. Due to the Christmas break there are no more games until 3 weeks time; except for the New Year derbies which have ended up here, there and everywhere. So with 58% of games completed a good opportunity to reflect on the standings. Haddington lead but have Leith breathing down their necks, and both head-to-heads still awaited. Dunipace will not give up the hunt either. Allowing for games in hand anybody down to about Dalkeith yet hope to reach safety.
  7. Saturday 18th December 2021 Glenrothes 2-2 Luncarty Heriot-Watt University 2-0 Hawick RAU Lochore Welfare 2-2 Edinburgh South Newburgh 1-4 Easthouses Lily Peebles Rovers 1-1 Kinnoull Preston Athletic V-V Burntisland Shipyard Stirling University EOS 1-3 Oakley United Leaders held by Luncarty as Oakley close to within 2pts. Kinnoull and Lochore also draw. Due to the Christmas break there are no more games until 3 weeks time; except for the New Year derbies which have ended up here, there and everywhere. So with 60% of games completed a good opportunity to reflect on the standings. Glenrothes lead only narrowly ahead of Oakley, while Preston remain in the driving seat given their games in hand. After that a few longer shot hopes. It looks like catching Luncarty is the best chance of those in bottom half surviving.
  8. Saturday 18th December 2021 Bo'ness Athletic P-P Fauldhouse United Livingston United 1-5 Whitburn Pumpherston 2-3 Bathgate Thistle Syngenta 4-1 Edinburgh College West Calder United 1-6 Armadale Thistle Whitburn go top for Christmas. Bo'ness was fogbound. Due to the Christmas break there are no more games until 3 weeks time; except for the New Year derbies which have ended up here, there and everywhere. So with 57% of games completed a good opportunity to reflect on the standings. Whitburn lead by 2pts from Bo'ness Athletic, 3pts from Syngenta and 4pts from Armadale. Syngenta have advantage of couple of games in hand. It's clearly between these 4 for the 2 or 3 slots in the new Second Division. Bathgate's win at Pumpherston today drops latter into 'wooden spoon' position.
  9. It was 60 years ago today that Hearts and Rangers met in a fog-affected Scottish League Cup Final replay at Hampden... indeed fans couldn't see much of the early action due to the conditions. Floodlights has only been installed 2 months earlier (being hanselled by Rangers v Eintracht Frankfurt friendly). This final is the latest in the year a Scottish League Cup Final has ever been played - although that'll be surpassed by tomorrow's edition - plus was the latest any major final had been played, up until the held-over Scottish Cup Final of 2019-20. Incidentally none has ever been in January. Having drawn 1-1 in late October before 88,000 there were only 47,500 present to see Rangers run out 3-1 winners. They took the lead on 6mins, were pegged back within 60 seconds only to add 2 more by the time 20mins had been reached. There was to be no more scoring. Jimmy Millar, Ralph Brand and Ian McMillan on target for the Ibrox men; Norrie Davidson for Hearts. Both clubs had fulfilled league games on the Saturday, with Rangers losing at Dunfermline and Hearts drawing with Kilmarnock. In those days Monday was a traditional night for midweek play.
  10. Been announced R4 draw is Monday (8pm) live on YouTube.
  11. Would if moved to incompliant ground, although don't think anybody has.
  12. Remember they had no pitches nevermind lines on them. You scored by putting the ball between poles or similar markers but there was no goal-line. Like jumpers for goalposts at school really.
  13. Queen's Park Broomhill Cumbernauld Colts East Stirlingshire University of Stirling Lothian Thistle HV Glasgow University are all licensed and groundsharers. You could add Tynecastle in the sense they share with Boroughmuir RFC. Fort William play all their league games away. Others have groundshared previously and Cove Rangers somehow even got away with sharing 'travelling circus'-style.
  14. Nithsdale Wanderers 2-1 Abbey Vale at QotS on Friday night in the Southern Alba Cup final. Nithsdale are 6th in SOSL and were crushed 7-2 at home by Hurlford Utd in this season's South Challenge Cup - so EOSL and WOSL reps will fancy their chances.
  15. Rangers B 3-0 Partick Thistle tonight. Partick Thistle v Queen's Park confirmed Tuesday 18th January... at Petershill... kickoff 1pm (!)...
  16. Down to earth with a... bump? Also rather ominous report in today's paper the Scottish government is in discussion with organisers on whether Edinburgh Hogmanay event can proceed. Slated to have 30,000 present - and while more 'revelries' take place than in your typical big football crowd, it's also spread out over a wider footprint. Despite almost half the population being triple-jabbed, and everybody else who wants it double-jabbed (with an ability to get #3 within a few weeks), it appears more restrictions are to be announced tomorrow including measures requiring "UK financial support" - which implies limiting or shutting industries again. Passports already apply to all crowds over 10k. Do we think the LC Final on Sunday, then the subsequent Boxing Day and New Year crowds/etc., will go ahead with full stadiums? With winter break meaning no Premiership games between Jan 3rd and 26th does breathing space without big crowds luckily happen to already exist if any crowd restrictions are left off until then?
  17. ... or gains a club from LL e.g. Vale down, Auchinleck up. Plus it's automatic, not playoff.
  18. Egypt 3-1 Jordan (aet, FT 1-1) Morocco 2-2 Algeria (aet, FT 1-1) 3-5p Egypt make hard work of it - while in a mild surprise Algeria win the North African derby. SFs: Wednesday 15th December Tunisia v Egypt Qatar v Algeria Read that some satellite and streaming providers are picking-up SFs & Final so they may yet appear on Eurosport/etc.
  19. Apparently finished with 9-men today due to injuries. Listed 1 sub.
  20. Not sure if a winning streak of this duration has been seen at EOS top level since Kelty and LTHV went at it hammer-n-tongs in 2017-18. Confidence must be coursing through the veins of club and players. Plus after Musselburgh (4th) on Saturday and Broxburn (6th) night before Hogmanay, the next 7 games are against sides placed 14th, 8th, 16th, 7th, 9th, 18th and 17th from which a considerable points haul could be targeted.
  21. Saturday 11th December 2021 Camelon 2-2 Dunbar United Crossgates Primrose P-P Musselburgh Athletic Hill of Beath Hawthorn 1-0 Broxburn Athletic Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts 1-0 Lothian Thistle HV Jeanfield Swifts P-P Penicuik Athletic Linlithgow Rose 5-1 Dundonald Bluebell Newtongrange Star 1-2 Tynecastle Sauchie P-P Tranent Whitehill Welfare 4-1 Blackburn United Linlithgow took advantage of Penicuik and Tranent's games being off to close within 5pts of the leaders and 1pt of 2nd as a fantastic winning run continues... indeed they can go 2nd next week, if they avoid defeat at Musselburgh, as Tranent don't have a game (it was played earlier in season when they and Newtongrange got byes in Scottish Cup prelim). Hill of Beath landed a stunning win; Whitehill a vital win; and Camelon a prized point; down other end. None of the bottom 4 are more than 4pts from safety now. Next weekend is the last before the brief Christmas break kicks-in: Saturday 18th December 2021 Blackburn United v Jeanfield Swifts Broxburn Athletic v Tynecastle Camelon v Crossgates Primrose Dunbar United v Sauchie Lothian Thistle HV v Dundonald Bluebell (2pm) Musselburgh Athletic v Linlithgow Rose Penicuik Athletic v Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts Whitehill Welfare v Hill of Beath Hawthorn
  22. Saturday 11th December 2021 Arniston Rangers 1-3 Leith Athletic Coldstream V-V Kennoway Star Hearts Craigroyston 2-4 St Andrews United Dunipace (eight) 8-2 Dalkeith Thistle Edinburgh United 0-3 Rosyth Ormiston P-P Thornton Hibs Tweedmouth Rangers P-P Kirkcaldy & Dysart Leith took the chance to close to within 1pt of Haddington - in what remains a dramatic race for top and promotion. Dunipace thrashed Dalkeith to stay in touch behind; Rosyth took key points to overtake Coldstream into 7th; while maligned St Andrews rise to heady heights of 11th. Next weekend is the last before the brief Christmas break kicks-in: Saturday 18th December 2021 Arniston Rangers v Coldstream (1:30pm) Dalkeith Thistle v Haddington Athletic Kirkcaldy & Dysart v Dunipace (1:30pm) Ormiston v Rosyth (1:30pm) St Andrews United v Edinburgh United (1:30pm) Thornton Hibs v Craigroyston (1:30pm) Tweedmouth Rangers v Leith Athletic (1:30pm)
