  1. Skelped! After the 1st 15 minutes Talbot took the game by the scruff of the neck and never let go, Meadow unable to adapt or change things, truth is Talbot never really got out of 2nd gear.
  2. Cracking game in prospect, not been to many games this season so far due to other commitments, be there on saturday though!
  3. Captain Bertie 1.45 Chester Critical Moment 2.20 Chester Treasure Beach 2.55 Chester Patent @ £1.00 each 2/1,2/1 and 10/1 = £178 spondoolies if they all trot home!
  4. Yes best team on the day won,can't for the life of me understand the tactics employed by meadow,we're not a long ball team when we get it down and pass we are a joy to watch and very few teams live with it,yesterday they were devoid of ideas in all areas of the park and found themselves wanting big style,too many players just never turned up. i'm not going to comment on the penalties or ref,it's over now,just have to get the heid doon and concentrate on the league and other trophies now.
  5. I have all the results up till 1986 if you're interested.
  6. Nice recollections here lads,Ayrshire has only lost 1 team in recent(comparitive) memory that was Dreghorn Juniors in 1974ish or thereabouts i'm not old enough to remember them as i was just a young lad then with no interest in junior football at the time,i think the new part of the A71 Kilmarnock to Irvine dual carriageway passes through the ground they had now. Theres quite a few interesting pieces of information in this book,for example it used to be the case that all the local finals were played on the same day! Here's the results for some of them from Sat June 3rd 1933. East Fife Cup- Denbeath Star 2 Rosslyn Juniors 3 Maryhill Charity Cup- Ashfield 3 Petershill 1 WOS Consolation Cup- Cambuslang 2 Kilwinning Eglinton 0 Dundee Telegraph Cup- North End 3 East Craigie 2 Lanarkshire Cup- Wishaw 4 Burnbank Athletic 1 Musselburgh Cup- Tranent 4 Newtongrange 1 West Fife Cup- Inverkeithing 2 Hearts of Beath 1 WOS Cup- Strathclyde 3 Rob Roy 1 North Eastern Cup- St Anthony's 3 Glencairn 1 Victory Consolation Cup- Baillieston 2 Milngavie 2 Smyllum Cup- Shawfield 4 St Roch's 1 Elder Hospital Cup- Benburb 3 Clydebank 1 Renfrewshire Cup- Neilston Vics 2 Neilston 3 Rothesay Charity Cup- Rothesay Royal Vics 5 Bute Athletic 0 Glasgow Cup- Cambuslang 1 Ashfield 0. As you can see some teams managed to field 2 teams on the same day must've had big squads or different kick off times! The weather was just as bad then too as the following snippet will confirm,The Sunday Mail reported that on the 8th Feb 1931, 2 of Grantown on Spey's players walked 3 miles from Glenmore to Grantown with snow 2 feet deep on the roads,in order to join their teammates at 10pm for the long trip to Rothesay for a 5th round junior cup tie v Rothesay Royal Vics,all in vain though as after the 14 hr journey the team suffered a 5-1 loss,makes todays players seem like a bunch of pansies eh! The 1st floodlight junior game in Dundee was on Wed 18th of Oct at Gillburn Park in front of 1000 people,St Joseph's beat Carnoustie 4-1. In the 1960's Beith centre forward Willie McManus scored 7 goals on his debut v's Kilwinning Rangers,only for Beith to lose 8-9! Oh well no football this weekend never mind i'm reading a good book!
  7. Brings back memories of an early 80's vivit with the Meadow up to Muirkirks old ground,2 old guys shooing the sheep off the park and shovelling the shit into a barra 10 mins before kickoff.
  8. I've just been reading A Centenary History of Scottish Junior Football Published in 1986,there are a few clubs in there that have went defunct since that year,i can remember seeing 1 or 2 and where they played,does anyone else have any stories or recollections of them? Aberdeen Bon Accord,Arbroath Vics,Baillieston,Balbeggie,Blantyre Celtic,Bonnybridge,Cabarfeidh,Clackmannan,Coltness,Comrie,Coupar Angus,Crombie,Cuminestown,Downfield,Elmwood,St Josephs,Jubilee Athletic,Forfar Albion,Glenboig,Halbeath,Leven,Maud,Perth Celtic,Polkemmet,Rosslyn,Tulliallan. No doubt i've missed a couple and maybe 1 or 2 are still going( my apologies). Personally i remember seeing Baillieston,Balbeggie,Bonnybridge,Coltness,Downfield and Jubilee Athletic.
  9. Disnae matter which one of those three you get you'll still get beat! that's if you get past deveronvale of course!
  10. if we manage to get through i wouldn't say that's as far as we'll get,after all we could be drawn against the winners of the following ties at home,whitehill v inverurie,edinburgh city v keith,deveronvale v ayr,spartans v forfar or wick v brechin. not one of them would fancy coming to meadow park if we'd put out arbroath in the previous round.
