  1. The Daily Record has the story - https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/ayrshire/ayrshire-football-clubs-delight-long-18766840
  2. Does anyone know of any astrograss parks in Glasgow that let you hire a 3rd of the pitch for 1.5 hours? Most of them (as far as I know) only allow you to hire them for an hour at a time. Thanks.
  3. They should get a TeamExpert website like the East of Scotland Football Association & League website: https://www.eosfl.com/
  4. I haven't read every post but for me one of the biggest issues is work commitments as a few guys have mentioned. The change to a 24/7 society means a lot more people are having to work all sorts of hours. Other guys just aren't committed and drop out of games for all sorts of reasons. Someone mentioned limiting the amount of players in your squad but I'm not sure how that would help. In our league you are not allowed trialists.
  5. We are looking to add a couple of defenders to our squad, especially a left back. We have a good group of players but we've lost a few defenders this season because of work/family reasons and need to strengthen in that area. If you are unattached, looking for a change, or ex-junior, please contact us. We are a well organised Saturday morning amateur team based on the southside of Glasgow. We play in the Premier Division of the Strathclyde Churches League which is a competitive and good standard. Players should have a good attitude and *must* be able commit to being at training and games each week. Training is at Toryglen on a Tuesday evening. Players must have experience of 11-a-side football as the standard of the league is good with ex senior and ex semi-pro players playing within it. Thanks.
  6. Aha I miss the old email lists, I preferred them to a lot of the web forums that people moved to. (I also got the email yesterday to the juniors mailing list.) Annual discussions on things like winter breaks, fixture lists and a pyramid structure if I remember right. Regular match reports were posted too. It's true what garrellburn says about people moving from one platform to another. Usenet (newsgroups) was a great part of the early internet and pre-dates the World Wide Web. There were groups for just about anything. Gradually though they were overrun with spam and people moved on to mailing lists, then online forums, social media platforms and now Whatsapp is common for group discussions.
  7. Any unattached goalkeepers looking for some game time? My team have friendlies this Saturday morning in Dreghorn (Irvine) and Monday evening in Newton Mearns and need a keeper. Thanks.
  8. Hi did you find a team? We have friendlies tomorrow morning (in Irvine) and Monday evening (in Newton Mearns) and need a keeper. Thanks.
  9. Any suggestions for good public grass parks in Glasgow where a team could train other than Bellahouston Park for preseason? Thanks.
  10. The cup final should be played on grass and clubs should insist on it.
  11. Calling the third tier "one" is just daft. It's daft in the EPL and it's daft in the SPFL. Even calling tier 2 division 1 is confusing. Either go with 1,2,3,4 or give every division a name. Don't name some divisions and number others!
  12. As a provider of football club websites for many junior clubs in Scotland (get the disclaimer in first), I think it's important to realise that Websites and Social Media accounts should serve different purposes when it comes to promoting your football club. Someone else put it like this - your website is your online presence 'body' and social media accounts are the 'arms' bringing people into your website. Social media is great for notifying people of news, and when you add new content to your website, you should use social media to promote that content. However, when it comes to displaying content or recording information in an easy to access, searchable format, social media is a poor medium to use. As an example, check out Vale of Leven's website. We have provided their website for over 14 years. If you go to the Matches page, you will see 49 matches listed for the current season for their 2 teams: http://www.valeoflevenfc.co.uk/content.php?pg=match&pd=1022 However, if you click on the Show all matches link, over 1100 matches will be listed going back to 2003 when Dougie Wilson scored a hat-trick in a 7-0 win against Irvine Vics. (He was then subbed at half time for Meechan who scored a double.) Websites also allow you to do various things that social media can't, like automatically generate player statistics. Clicking on Dougie Wilson's name shows me that he scored 49 goals in 129 games over 9 seasons. You can also view a list of the matches he played in from July 2003 onwards. The Vale of Leven website is a good example of what can be done as Angus (from the club) has kept it up to date over the years and also added a lot of historical information. He's able to quickly update the website from the online control panel. I'm happy to help any clubs looking to start a website or upgrade their website. Find out more here: http://www.teamexpert.co.uk/ We also provide league websites including the East of Scotland Football Association & League website: http://www.eosfl.com/ Stephen
  13. Glasgow Club grass pitches are still closed unfortunately. Did you get my pm the other day?
  14. Are there any junior teams who's parks are available to hire this Saturday morning (29th July) for a friendly between two amateur teams? Struggling to find an available park and Glasgow Club grass parks aren't available yet. Thanks.
  15. Does anyone know of any grass pitches in the Glasgow area that might be available to hire this Saturday morning? Struggling to find somewhere for a friendly. Thanks.
