  1. There should be more teams in the Scottish Cup not fewer. Can start at end of October and be in 4th Round for January / February as normal, no replays first 3 rounds though. League One and League Two teams will all be voting for this then greeting about how Premiership clubs don't give them enough percentage of their TV money even though the teams that are getting kept below them in the pyramid get exactly £0 for their league games while they get thousands.
  2. A bit of a disgrace to say the least if Scottish Cup permanently to be reduced to 52 teams. Around 70 plus teams must have spent millions altogether on floodlights and ground improvements for what exactly? A very tiny chance to get into Lowland League and/or League Two?
  3. Another new signing Marc Wardrope 20 year old midfielder / right back from Bonnyton. Son of one of our best keepers Michael Wardrope who won many league titles and cups at Meadow during his time with us. Michael and Gareth Turner also helped rebuild our team from scratch after our relegation to Super First with players who all gave 110%.

  5. Don't get you. Meadow have always been one of the big Ayrshire teams and trophies won only Talbot and a couple of others can compare. Trophy wise a bit of a lull in the 1990s still won league titles and other trophies though and always been regarded as a big name in Junior / non league football.
  6. 12 Ayrshire League Titles, 7 West of Scotland titles and 3 Scottish Cup titles plus numerous other trophies Meadow had won before there was investment around 2006ish...
  7. What did you all think of the list? Dalglish or Law for number 1? Goram at 5 and Andy Robertson top 10...seem a bit high? Missing a lot of players from 1900-1960..? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/53132194/page/4 A couple of my pals did a wee podcast on it and invited me to talk about it [emoji85][emoji23]. Excuse my bad chat and a couple of inaccuracies especially on John Collins, was a bit drunk doing it on a Saturday night. From 15 minutes in. https://open.spotify.com/episode/0S5pzGhsJuQM3rotvxwyIB?si=y_rbJYcyRx2P4DmItjSBHw
  8. About the Irvine Meadow under 20s. "Irvine Meadow are pleased to announce the management team for our new U20`s Development Squad who will compete in the new Lowland Development League (West). Head Coach Jamie McCulloch comes to us with playing experience in England at Oldham Athletic FC and Ipswich Town FC before an ACL injury prematurely finished his playing career. On returning to Scotland Jamie coached in the Ayr United Football Academy before moving to Hibernian FC then onto working with the SFA on the Project Brave initiative. Jamie brings with him a proven track record of player development and progression. Jamie will work closely with the first team staff and be assisted by his backroom team of Nick Coles (Strength and Conditioning Coach), Scott Johnston (Goal Keeping Coach) and Jon McTear (Team Coordinator / Recruitment). Squad recruitment is progressing well - 15 players already signed with more expected in the coming weeks - to complete what we expect will be a strong and talented squad - all pushing to take their opportunity in the first team squad. Jamie stated “We are delighted to be taking up this challenge at Irvine Meadow and look forward to working closely with Colin, James and David. From first discussions, management and the club committee have been open and clear on their ambitions and philosophies, which are totally in-line with our own footballing values. Young players are not commodities, they need to be valued and appreciated to develop them properly into first team environment - the investment in the development squad and buy-in from the club has been tremendous. We look forward to introducing these young players to the Medda fans and seeing them at our games on Friday nights to watch the lads develop and progress towards the first team”.

  10. Your first post on here was about Darvel Legend as has most of your posts been about him. Your either his besto or you are him [emoji849]
  11. I was hoping we could get our level back for even September going by very low death and infection rate in many parts of Scotland, but Jason Leitch doesn't sound too optimistic here although they do expect crowds back in October at some point. I think he is being a bit too cautious unless like Leicester and a second spike in our cities.
  12. Is there not 67 teams so 4 X 16 doesn't work? 16-16-17-18 would perhaps make most sense as teams in bottom division less likely to go as far in the cup competitions so gives them more league games from 2021-22 onwards. Or could it be taking so long as perhaps thinking 18-16-16-17 long term?
  13. I think it's McTernans local team so less travelling and Jordan may get much more game time at Arthurlie than he had in last year at Meadow.
  14. Current Squad Graham Boyd Ryan Carnwath Calum Gow Lee McCrea Andy McLaughlin Mark McLennan Darren Miller Shaun Newman Brendan Sharpe Neil Slooves Jared Willet Plus hopefully Ben Carson to come back from long term injury. New signings Martin Findlay (defender) Jamie Henderson (centre midfielder) Jamie Martin (attacking midfielder) Ryan McKie (winger) Dylan Pooler (striker / winger) Michael Reilly (striker) Hopefully add another 2 or 3 before we start football up again.
