  1. Trialists

    Yes, maximum of four in the starting line up as usual. Trialists are also allowed in the upcoming Sectional League Cup knockout games on the 15th August but not in the quarter finals after that.
  2. Brig O'Lea Stadium

    A few years ago I put up a post about the early stage plans to possibly build houses on Brig O'Lea. At that time a lot of regulars on here gave us great words of support for our fight ahead. Since then, so many visiting committee men have asked us about the ground and if we will have to move elsewhere. We are delighted to announce that we have just signed a new lease on Brig O'Lea Stadium with East Renfrewshire Council that will secure our stadium now until 2045. We will be looking to modernise the ground via funding from the Neilston Community Sports Hub while keeping the traditional feel of Brig O'Lea. So thanks for all the support we received back then from the Pie and Bovril Juniors community. We really appreciated it.

    Saturday's victory over Beith saw the first use of the newly refurbished home dressing room at Brig O'Lea Stadium. Many thanks to club sponsor Rearo Laminates Ltd for generously supplying the wet wall panels and to vice president Steven Galbraith and all who helped him get this job done.

  10. New kits?

    Our new away top this season. Same home top as last season.
  11. West Region AGM outcome

    Kirkintilloch to Ashfield or Petershill is only about 6 miles is it not? No matter how you group the West Region teams, there will always be discrepancies. Our clubs don't all sit in neat wee pockets. Your original group was tighter but the Johnstone Burgh proposal widened the groups. Our group now instead of being in only with Arthurlie, the Bens and the Ants could now include Port Glasgow and Greenock in future years. Years ago they were in our sectional group anyway.
  12. West Region AGM outcome

    Sections 1 and 2 are now an 8 team group. Sections 3 and 4 are now an 8 team group etc etc. This list was the original management proposal but Johnstone Burgh's amendment to it was voted through as a way of sharing around, within a slightly wider geographical region, the fixtures.
  13. Various club name issues

    Carluke Rovers
  14. Various club name issues

    We are officially Neilston Juniors FC and that is the name that appears in our constitution. Funnily enough in our first incarnation in 1898 , there was already Neilston FC who were a senior side and members of the SFA until 1902. So the newly formed junior side back in 1898 called themselves Neilston Victoria FC rather than Neilston Juniors FC which you might've expected to differentiate between the senior and junior side. The Vics went into abeyance in 1939 and then as war was ending, the club was reformed as Neilston Juniors FC in 1945.
  15. SJFA AGM this Saturday

    You think clubs would vote to scrap the Sectional as easy as that!
