  1. West Region Fixture Update for 23rd March

    A couple of seasons ago when Largs were in relegation zone they had only one game against Talbot to be played. At the time Talbot were still in with a chance of winning the league. This was when fixtures were arranged on a week to week basis. Largs went 58 days without a fixture. Nearly two months. This can happen to clubs due to postponements in winter. But this was in summer at the end of the season. What should have been Largs biggest gate of the season turned out to be a poor gate because it was eventually played on a Monday night in June when Largs were relegated and Talbot could no longer win the league. All the other clubs managed to catch up on their fixtures. Between Largs previous game and the end of the season, of the clubs Talbot played, Rob Roy and Glenafton played 7 games, Beith 5 games and Hurlford, Troon and Kilwinning all played 4 games. Largs were being punished because their artificial surface meant no postponements. I can understand the other clubs being behind but Largs should not have ended up being the final game of the league season after being ahead in fixtures for so long. I doubt Kennie will ever make a mess of things as bad as that.
  2. Maybe time to give Largs some credit?

    As if to prove my point.... Earlier in the week I was going to come on and point out there had only been 2 pumpings all season but didn't want to temp fate.
  3. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Head count of roughly 350 in the 'random matches you are going to' thread in the misc football sub-forum. 400 by a groundhopper over on non-league matters. It's the "official" attendance I was looking for although I suppose this is better than nothing. Thanks.

    Anyone have attendance for Troon v Lochee United?
  5. Todays scores 23/2

    689 attendance.
  6. West Region Fixture Update

    That struck me as odd when he mentioned the drop down lists - I'd have thought if they had already met at the home club then that name would not be available for selection.
  7. St Roch"s 2018/19

    I doubt if anyone from Largs INSISTED on tickets being issued. They may have ASKED if tickets were being issued as that is required by the SJFA in Scottish Junior Cup games. "9. In all rounds of the Scottish Cup Competition, including the Semi Final, where applicable, it is the responsibility of the home club to ensure that every spectator entering the ground receives a numbered ticket on receipt of entrance fee. These tickets will ensure the proper number of people entering and the correct gate receipts thus allowing both clubs to enact Cup Competition Rules - Rule 2. " As for the Euro Millions - I had to laugh at the St. Roch's fans chanting about this. I doubt the Euro Millions winner has set foot in Barrfields in years. I don't think he even lives in Largs any more. I could have swore I heard someone say he'd moved to Troon. I will echo the comment above, your club is definitely heading in the right direction.
  8. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Quoting myself now I've actually had a look at it. Over a ten year period (including this year), there have been 22 different clubs from the West region making 51 appearances. There have been 15 different East clubs making 29 appearances. Of those 15 East Region clubs, 11 have now left the Juniors. For clubs making more than one appearance there are 13 West clubs and 6 East clubs. Only Lochee United of those 6 are still in the Juniors. Auchinleck have made 8 appearances. Bo'ness United and Hurlford United 4 appearance.
  9. Today's Scores 9th Feb

    They never got the chance to put their case to the committee so original decision has been put aside for now and will be re-heard.
  10. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Naw he is just a bawbag Some of the songs though.....no need for that. It does take away from the work your committee do. A very friendly committee wishing us well in the next round. I may say that myself to the opposition if they depart victorious but inside I'm hoping their bus breaks down and they get pumped 7-0 in the next round. But that's just me. With St. Roch's the well wishes did seem genuine.
  11. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    It was to take us into the quarter finals of the Scottish Junior Cup. We don't often get that far. Too right we're going to celebrate.
  12. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    How many East teams are still there by the quarter final stage normally?
  13. Todays scores 24/1

    I thought that was what was happening - them getting the names mixed up. Incidentally "graffiti on the wall" isn't exactly the best of user names to have if you don't want St. Roch's to attract the attention it does. Or are you going to claim it has nothing to do with the Wolfe Tone's song?
  14. Todays scores 24/1

    The main incident that day was the racist abuse of James Marks as he walked round the park. That isn't up for debate. I heard that one myself. What was argued at the time was the guy meant to say "hammer thrower" but instead said "spear chucker" - and as daft as that sounds I can actually see that. I was thinking about that match last week because of how it looked that Clydebank could have scored an injury time equaliser. There wouldn't have been the same over the top celebrations as the game didn't have the same atmosphere as 12½ years ago.

    There's normally another woman there helping her but she was a late call off.
