  1. West Premiership Prizemoney

    How would Auchinleck know about how much you get for coming second?
  2. The 1925 Scottish Cup final

    Nwarly as many as talbots home gate then!
  3. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Aye, and one of his players almost took the dressing room door off its hinges on the way out.
  4. Darvel Juniors 2018/19

    Are you the maniac who was going crazy with your players after Colville Park lost last night?
  5. Summer transfer speculation 2019

    41 goals so far this season, second only tp Adam Forsyth as his old man keeps reminding everybody but a better player overall in my opinion. Good with the head as well which is becoming something of a rarity these days. I think he will get goals in the second division if he has a couple of decent players alongside him.
  6. Todays scores 11/5

    Re the debate about teams being inconsistent and not good enough fot the Premier dovision. Only Glencairn anbd Benburb have truly been consistent throughout the season, all the teams battling for the third promotion spot have been inconsiastent (including ourselves) but have shown good enough form at times to match , and even beat, these two. You could say several of the teams in the Premier are not good enough to be there, like Rob Roy and a couple of the Ayrshire clubs, but they are and likely to remain in it for another season at least. Look at what happened to the two rop teams in last seasons championship, by far the worst in the Premier and strasight back down, interesting to see what happens next season, I reckon Glens and Bens are good enough to stay up but whoever goes up with them will struggle.

    Thanks for info, I seem to remember seeing a Scottish cap in a display many years ago and allegedly it was his but how it came to be with other KR memorabilia I wouldn't know. Some of it has ended up in the custody of North Lanarkshire council so may be lost in their archives somewhere. Our player Walls, was definitely an Arthur so not the same guy.

    Harry Pinkertom had been with Kilsyth the previous season and I believe giot a Scottish junior cap, was this Arthur walls at no 4 who came to us a few years later? There does seem to be a few players in those days who played for both clubs. I suppose if they came from the Falkirk area it was fairly likely as both towns are within easy travelling distance, we certainly had a lot of players from there.
  9. Rossvale to ground share with Benburb

    As far as I understand it KRR are putting up a significant part of the funding from the sale of Adamslie. They will hope to learn from other new grounds built recently and provide more than just the absolutely basic facilities, ie playing pitch and changing rooms. Some covered terracing is a must, as is a capacity for at least 1000 I would think. Went down to the site a few days ago and nothing has changed in the past few years although latest word is that work will start in June.
  10. Rutherglen Glencairn 2018-19

    Think its got more to do with some teams having very poor defences. To score 100 goals in 30 games is an average of 3.33 per game. A few clubs in the lower leagues are conceding a lot more than that and making fairly average teams look better than they really are, Not saying Glencairn, Gartcairn, etc are not decent sides but maybe they will be found out when they move up a league.
  11. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Maybe we should get together and our squad plays the home games and yours plays the away games. Win the league at a canter!
  12. Kilsyth v Rossvale 25.7.16

    Another great home win, just a pity our away form hadn't been just a little better and we would undoubtably be going up. Spoke briefly to cameraman at the end and he was very complimentary about the standard of football played last night by both teams. There is still a bit of a gap between us and top three but ambition must be to get above at least one of the bunch chasing third place. A win at Arthurlie would certainly put the cat amomgst the doos!

    Interestingly my official SFA copy of the Laws of the Game, published 2006, does not specify the actual cross sectional shape of the posts and crossbar. It only states that they should be the same width and depth (5ins/12cm). They could be square, circular or presumably even multi faceted, hexagon, octogonal or even auld thrupenny bit shaped. That would make for some very interesting rebounds off the post!
  14. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    i doubt that anything other than square section goalposts and crossbar existed in that era and the idea that anything else would supersede them was most unlikely. I have photos showing the old wooden square posts still at Hampden well into the 1960's and they probably still exist at a few of the old grounds to this day. Last junior ground I remember seeing them was Showpark at East Kilbride not more than 6 or 7 years ago.

    These sort of crowds were the norm in the immediate post war years. Five figure crowds even for fairly minor cup finals which were always played a senior grounds. Have a look at The Irvine Meadow website and you will see details of the Scottish cup run in which they played before 220,000 spectators, admittedly with multiple replays, but still a truly amazing total.
