  1. Haha, hopefully the game is on tomorrow as there has been a lot of rain again but forecast is better tomorrow i believe! Hopefully see you there for a pint after the game, I am at work but hoping to finish for 3:30 and make the 2nd half...
  2. To be fair I barely check the website and normally just google the fixtures😂 I'd imagine it will be a midweek fixture at some point then 👍
  3. Do you have a game next Saturday the 17th? We don't have a game scheduled.
  4. Selkirk 0-8 Gretna Simply put........Did not see this coming after saturday’s shocker! Great response from the lads. Couldn’t make the game unfortunately & unlikely to see another match until September but a big confidence booster regardless of whatever bad times Selkirk are going through. Bit disappointed we failed to better EK’s result on Saturday though
  5. He was a trialist on Saturday & despite a poor team performance he was one of our better performers, didnt play tonight though but i’ve heard nothing from the club on him signing.
  6. Tommy has been a great servant to the club, its a great shame he gone from his role. I’ve no idea what happened personally, its an internal issue & i don’t have anything to do with the ins & outs. Last time i was at Raydale was last home game of last season, have been unable to attend any pre-season games, i’ll be there saturday though.
  7. First time i’ve been on here in ages..........Should have much more updates on the goings on at Raydale this coming season. Couldn’t get to many games 2nd half of last season due to work commitments but that has fortunately changed. I have taken over the clubs twitter page & there are at least 2 more individuals helping out with the social media now. Looking forward to the season ahead. Good luck all!!!
  8. Haven't seen Spartans yet this season but i'm sure they'll be there or thereabouts. Best side i've seen at Raydale were EK but since the beat us they've struggled, a labouring win at home yesterday says there not the team they were last season & BSC defeat yesterday has thrown the league wide open, no reason why Selkirk can't get involved either, best season yet for the Lowland League!
  9. Its a shame, we had a very good programme that Cicero used to produce, i myself put a couple of contributions towards it including a football quiz. Unfortunately the board/committee changed hands & the current people don't produce one. Very unfortunate as i took great pride in our programme & did plan on bettering it but it just wasn't to be.
  10. I have to say i'm maybe biased but i thought the game of the day yesterday was at Raydale. The game is a local derby and was very much played like one too. Probably our best crowd of the season helped by the excellent travelling away support. We definitely deserved to be in front after a bright start and 2-0 just after half time was justifiable, but near enough straight after our second goal we switched off & let Dalbeattie back in the game, we conceded two very poor goals (the first was a good goal from Dalbeattie's point of view) both were defenders switching off & it looked as if we'd thrown the 3 points away, Dalbeattie really could have been in front themselves in the last 10 minutes with a header just wide where the lad really should have scored. It was thanks to a goalmouth scramble where we got our winner, Star failed to clear & Connelly managed to stab the ball home. A stramash in the goalmouth followed where Jack Hunter was shown a red but it was very difficult to see who committed what offence, Star saw red minutes later from an off the ball incident but to be fair the referee had lost the plot far earlier, needless yellows for nothing really and deserved bookings going unpunished, that was the only negative to the game though. Another good win for us though, those games are the ones we'd been losing or drawing previously so it was nice to get the win. A really good 7 out of 9 points in the last 3 games and could easily have been maximum points. Encouraging times under Irons & Aitken. A quick note, very enjoyable night had in the "wee bar" afterward with a very good turnout for the fundraising event. A free drink for everyone after the game & myself and a few others managed to win a free round of drinks after winning the football quiz put on after the game. The Snail racing was surprisingly popular & i managed to win a bottle in the raffle as well, although a very sore head today! All we need now is 3 points tonight!!!!!
  11. Was unable to get to the game tonight due to other commitments but just saw the score, another cracking result 5-1 away albeit at Annan where i expected us to well anyway. Anyone that was there got a report on the game?
  12. Good peformance yesterday from Gretna against a very good side in BSC. We almost handed BSC their first defeat of the season & that result would have been deserved, a very even first half i thought, they came out of the blocks 2nd half quickly & looked to be getting on top but their opening goal came against the run of play after a good 5/10 min bit of pressure from Gretna, I honestly thought this game would go a bit like the EK game a few weeks back & we would lose by a few but we showed great character to get a quick equaliser followed by taking the league shortly after. BSC got an equaliser shortly after hitting the post but it was a weak goal for Gretna to concede. Man of the match - Steven Black, thought he was excellent, we play an awful lot better with Blackie marshalling things at the back. Special mention to Wrighty in goals, replace an injured Jonny, no idea if this was just a short term replacement but very good to see him back after a few years away, played very well (although should have done better for their equaliser) but a very good showing. Been a tough few weeks but i'd fancy us to do well on Wednesday night away at Edu Sport, the game is at Annan so hopefully we can get a good crowd. Irons/Aitken have really turned this team around, we showed great belief and character throughout, incredible to think this is pretty much the same team that were so shambolic in the first 2 games of the season!
  13. Was at work last saturday so didn't see the game but was told Gretna battled to a 1-0 win. Good to see a bit of organisation & that i believe was the second consecutive home clean sheet. Not working this weekend so looking forward to the game this weekend, not confident we'll win against EK but far more optimistic we'll give them a good game.
  14. Thought i would start this as other teams seem to have one but we don't have anything recent. Gretna won 6-1 away at Whitehill today & what a result that is! Only followed via Welfare's twitter but sounds like we were once again superb (coming back from 1-0 down also) I was at the game on Wednesday & have to say its the best performance i've seen from us at Raydale in a good 12 months. Irons & Aitken need to be commended for the transformation of the team in the last month, No idea what Henney was playing at but if you'd seen us in pre-season & at home to Civil in the 1st game of the season you would see why i'm so impressed! Glad to see the back of the old boss. Not getting carried away but i honestly thought we'd do well to stay up this season but now top half/mid table sounds much more realistic. Hopefully attendances pick up in the coming weeks, they certainly will if we keep improving like this.
  15. I highly doubt we'll see any of that committee back at Gretna, The current Ceo runs the show........Fact!
