  1. Junior Cup 18-19

    Best post yet stops away teams playing for replay. Most sensible suggestion yet. So not a consideration by SJFA! ...and when the days gets dark at 4pm? Candlelight presumably?
  2. Cumnock vs kello

    As a neutral watching the game last night was disappointed Kello didn't get through after a very spirited performance, with only four first team regulars available. It was a magnificent display. As a Talbot fan - and certainly not forgetting last season - we have nothing at all to fear from Cumnock next week.
  3. Organising a Programme and Memorabilia Fair at Caley Thistle on October 7th, from 10.30am until 1pm. Not been such a fair in the Highlands for decades now, so perhaps it's the right time to do so. If it's a success we hope to make it a regular affair. Stallholders in attendance are Auchinleck Talbot FC Programme and Memorabilia Hut, Easton Thain, Sandy Ridoch, Ken Morton, Niall Harkiss and ICT themselves. Pop down and have a look, even if you don't buy anything there'll be a wonderful array of football programmes and memorabilia on display. Admission is free. BUY, SELL and SWAP.
  4. Talbot vs Hurlford - Wednesday Night

    Would want to see us beat Hurlford every time, but couldn't give a monkey's feck about this competition. Rather beat them every time in the important games.
  5. Talbot vs Darvel

    Very impressed with Darvel today. Very well organised, played the ball on the deck, and ran their socks off. Fully deserved their win, and if they have a few beers on the back of it tonight have one on me as well. Thought the Darvel "ultras" bought a sense of colour and song to the game that is oh so sadly missing nowadays. Best of luck for the rest of the season.
  6. Clydebank F.C. 2018/19

    Always look forward to our games against you, and see you travel to Beechwood early season on August 18th. Programme shop will be open of course, and Bankies fans more than any other club patronise it well. Hope to reacquaint with those who've been before.
  7. Scottish cup dates

    Not fair. Us Talbot fans are going to be kept in the dark again over the fixture that counts!
  8. THORNHILL POP UP SHOP 59A DRUMLANRIG STREET FRIDAY 29th / SATURDAY 30th JUNE 10am - 5pm Dave Eddlestone will be selling hand crafted furniture and also his stunning vinyl, with all musical genres catered for. John Holroyd will be selling football programmes and memorabilia, with a very large stock including posters, books, annuals, handbooks, badges etc. John will also be providing a valuation service, free of charge, for any football programmes / memorabilia you may have, although it is the older items (pre 1970) that carry the value.
  9. Kenny Mclean

    Dennis Gray, Auchinlecl Talbot, played 424 games and scored 310 goals. Seven goals for Junior Scotland in 11 starts as well.
  10. Any of the promoted teams likely to have any title aspirations coming up? Anyone likely to be putting money into any of these teams? Last season was the most egalitarian it's ever been and it's quite possible that with 30 games to play rather than 22 that it could be even more so this year, especially if any of the promoted teams do the business on the pitch. On the contrary, it could lead to more meaningless end of season games than ever if we have runaway leaders and two clubs looking certain to drop come the half way stage. My own view, for what it's worth, is that with less likelihood than ever of the top clubs getting dragged into a relegation battle with six new clubs moving up it does givem the ability to plan for the longer term approach, maybe blooding new younger players from the academies (for those teams that have them) and giving such clubs even greater stability. Close season signings will be interesting, especially if Pollok and Kilwinning splash the cash again. Thoughts?
  11. Meadow v Arthurlie/ Arthurlie v Meadow

    With Arthurlie going down there's now just Talbot who have not been relegated from the Super League since it's inception.
  12. West of Scotland Cup

    And the administration wonders why they can't attract sponsorship for this trophy.
  13. West of Scotland Cup

    You really couldn't make this shite up. Quarter final yesterday, semi final Monday, possible final Wednesday. What way is that to run the second largest trophy in the Junior game? Fixture secretary should hang his head in shame - bring on the Lowland League ffs.
  14. West Super Saturday

    Well, if nothing else, this game has suddenly sparked to life a bit of "feeling" between the teams and the fans. It's been missing for donkey's years now, so hopefuly this might just kickstart the Cumnock vs Talbot derbies as something to really look forward to again.
  15. Scottish Junior Cup Final 2018

    For anyone, like TheLad that still doesn't get it....winning the Junior Cup Final means you have to get there in the first place, and once you're there it's all about winning it, nothing else matters. In this season's ties we had a ratehr easy first tie against Forres Thistle who we beat 8-0, we then beat Hill O'Beath 2-0 away in what many thought would be a very tought tie against a decent side. We then went to Cumnock and thrashed them 5-1 before beating Pollok 4-1, and then Carnoustie 2-0 away from home in the quarters. We then came from a home defeat at Lochee United to win 2-0 in Dundee with very late goals indeed - because this team never knows when to give up. We might not win every game, but we never fail to try and do so. Bar the Forres game, every other club we played was a Super League side, so that's one impressive record. It may have escaped your notice, but this year's FA Cup Final was of a terrible standard, but is anyone suggesting that Chelsea and Manchester United aren't capable of competing at the top level? Put your bitter pills away, pour yourself a glass of wine and chill out, or better still pop along to Townhead Park today and see what has the promise of being a very good game. On the other hand it could be awful, but that's football. I'd not have it any other way.
