  1. Enjoying the guy in the white shirt, with his back to the game, staring casually at the bandstand as Bonnyrigg stroke home a 98th minute penalty equaliser.
  2. Dalkeith Thistle 4 Ormiston Primrose 1. An impressive start to the league campaign continues for Dalkeith, now three wins in a row, and 14 goals scored.
  3. Surprised but delighted to find out a new brewery (Otherworld Brewing) has opened up in Dalkeith (near me). Surprised as it has been on the go for a good few months and the first I heard of it was visiting this superb wee beer shop in Castle Douglas (nowhere near me) today! I'll have to wait for these to chill to try them out. This new brewery appears to be directly behind Cross Borders for those who know the area, which must mark it out as the greatest postcode in Scottish Brewing? Now, must find a stockist somewhat closer to home, although I suspect the Eskbank Trading will have these in by now as well.
  4. Threave Rovers 4 Campbeltown Pupils 0 FT. Grotesquely lopsided game. Threave took the lead after four minutes and it has been incessant attacks on the Campbeltown goal ever since. Hopefully Campbeltown will give their away support (me plus me alone I think!) something to cheer in the second half. Had a nice wander around Threave Castle before the game so all is not lost. Cracking day out actually. Never in a hundred years would I have visited here were it not for the fitba! EDIT - much improved second half from Campbeltown. Kept Threave down to a few chances only and even got up the park themselves a few times.
  5. Second appearance of the week on this fine thread for Linton Hotspur. Tonight Edinburgh United U20s visited to be run ragged. Crowd was 25 ish. Random for me only in the sense that I went out for a walk after my tea and happened upon this two minutes along the road! Didn't know a game was on tonight.
  6. Peebles Rovers 1 Easthouses Lily 1. Two goals. Two red cards. Two gokarts racing about. Tremendous stuff.
  7. Peebles Rovers 0 Easthouses Lily 1 HT. Good game here, Easthouses scored a cracking goal. Volley from about half a mile out. Man sized midge threatening to attack at any minute, keeping the crowd on their toes. Some interesting looking mushrooms over by the corner flag for the foragers amongst you. EDIT - finished 1-1. Easthouses had a player sent off at half time, Peebles then had a player sent off after about 65 mins, then equalised. Game finished at 9:30pm in more or less pitch black conditions. Absolutely smashing stuff all round, both teams were going for a winner. Thoroughly entertaining.
  8. Tweedmouth Rangers 1 Dalkeith Thistle 6. Disappointing result for Thistle after putting eight past the Rangers in October. Landells must go.
  9. Campbeltown Pupils get off the mark early with a 3-1 home win over Eglinton. The daunting prospect of a trip to Threave Rovers (5-1 winners at Glenvale) now awaits next weekend. A mere 232 miles each way, a shade under five hours if they do F1 pitstops. I'm heading down to Castle Douglas to cheer them on.
  10. Whitletts Victoria 2 St Roch's 0. Late change of plan saw me heading here instead of Saltcoats. What's not to like about this? Well, there's the tuneless drummer leading the children singing their charming songs about the IRA. There's the 6/7 year old kids in Whitletts kit waving their Union Jack back at the away supporters. There's the downtown Bucharest Ceausescu era vibe of the Dam Park architecture. There's the dive bombing seagulls. There's the guy tanning his cans from a blue bag carry out at an impressive rate coming way too close to me and calling me Big Man a lot in that sinister/friendly way, whilst telling me what a fabulous atmosphere this is. There's the people wearing balaclavas because they saw somebody on You Tube do that once. And there's the fitba. HOOF. Can't be arsed with any of this. Day 1 of the league season and I've picked a stinker. Nice pie at least.
  11. Dalhousie Castle Hotel & Spa has a helicopter landing pad. Short limo ride to NDP from there, it's not really so Forfar to walk either.
  12. Bonnyrigg Rose 1 Hibs 4. Attendance 2,400 at a spruced up New Dundas Park. Bit of a gala day occasion for the locals in Midlothian as the "big team" (for many) came to town. Hibs were very comfortable throughout, looking like a significantly better team than Killie yesterday. Bonnyrigg had some decent spells but will rue conceding a third goal immediately after scoring, just a few moments away from HT. Game disrupted twice due to spectators needing medical treatment. Hopefully just heat related and nothing too serious. Great to see David Marshall, who becomes the first international goalie to grace these parts since Henry Smith was at Whitehill Welfare. Bonnyrigg go on to host Falkirk on Wednesday.
