  1. What are spectator facilities like? Food on offer?
  2. Lanark 2 Saltcoats 1 Missed a sitter in first minute and a Chucky Watt double inside 15 minutes had me thinking we would cruise to victory but I was very wrong. Amazed that this young Saltcoats team only have 6 points. They made a real game of it and I am told they had a good shout for balls being over the goal line on TWO separate occasions plus for a penalty, all in the first half, which the ref didn't see or give. Saltcoats pulled one back with an excellent strike. Even game in the 2nd half in which we hit the bar. Both keepers had good saves to make and it was uncomfortable for us right to the end. Impressed by the Saltcoats number 9. Good player. Lanark not renowned for grinding out results but we've done that 2 or 3 times this season which is a good sign.
  3. Yet another 'proper' Junior game at Lugar today. Lanark missed a sitter in the first minute and the game fizzed until the full time whistle on 94 mins. We were 1-0 and 2-1 down. Our first two goals were absolute crackers. Went in at 2-2 and , surprisingly for us came out in the 2nd half on the front foot and were 2-4 up after 55 mins. We lost goals within 2 mins of scoring our 4th and 5th goals. Crazy defending. Typical of the Juniors, we were 4-5 up and our wing backs were bombing forward in the 89th minute! Great game made better by an excellent pie - I confess going for a 2nd , for the first time ever (honestly) on 30 mins only to find they were sold out. Things are meant to be for a reason!
  4. Lanark 2 Bellshill 1 Another closely contested game which I felt we shaded. Fairly even first half where our visitors missed two good chances and we had one cleared off the line plus a goal disallowed that was definitely onside ( we were exactly in line). 2nd half, we went 1-0 up courtesy of our player manager Simon Eeles ( as fit as anyone on the field despite his 'seniority') and then 2-1 , this week managing to hold our lead. We missed two excellent chances plus the Bellshill keeper made one very good save. Bizarre booking for their manager after only about 15 minutes for hoofing the ball back onto the park. Crazy reaction so early in the game.
  5. I will say what I always do - we all see WAY more mistakes from our own players that cost us goals, points and games than we do from referees. It has always been thus. Look to your own team and individual players first and foremost
  6. Can't disagree with any of this. Carluke did very well today, particularly with their challenges with squad numbers. It was a penalty but it was weak and it was very unfortunate. Carluke took their chances and we missed a pile, although I can't recall the Carluke keeper having a save to make. Shocking performance by us. Shipping way too many goals. The good news is we are creating chances but not taking them.
  7. Irvine Vics 3 Lanark 3 Typical blood and guts Junior game that we all love. Either team could have won it. Lanark missed a sitter in injury time. Irvine keeper had several fine saves but Lanark keeper also had a couple of important blocks. I enjoyed my pie.
  8. Kello losing a big shock. Stunned silence from our Larkhall correspondents. Well done Newmains. Lanark at Irvine Vics on Saturday who are going well in the league and only lost 5 goals in 8 games, yet lost 6 in one cup game at the weekend! Lanark had consecutive 5-1 defeats, which we will obviously be looking to improve upon. Should be interesting.
  9. Bit delayed and a bit obvious but we were well beaten on Saturday, despite a bright start. 3 down inside 20 minutes, although 3rd wasn't over the line. Thought pulling one back would get us in gear but that never happened. 3 half time changes bucked us up and so only losing 1 in the second half didn't feel so bad! Well known I am no fan of the plastic but that was a nice set up at Bonnyton. Enjoyed my steak pie. Two consecutive 5-1 defeats by teams from higher divisions. Not good.
  10. Royal Albert 1 Lanark 4 3 up and coasting. Made 5 subs and lost some momentum. Good to give the guys some game time however. Lost a sloppy goal and then scored a late 4th. We squandered a fair few chances today.
  11. Was he in goal when they lost 3 to VoC ? I notice he didn't play against Carluke on Saturday, which is their good fortune.
  12. No predictions from me. Long way to go. We've not played 6 of the bottom 8 teams so far.
  13. Well done. They've not lost many goals this season but think this is the 2nd time they've lost 3 in a match. The wind must have made it fun. Bad enough at Lanark.
  14. I hate to have a pop but we were taken aback by how poor The Gow were today, particularly given your league position. We should have won by more today. What a great surprise for us to see Chucky Watt make an appearance and then come on as a sub and score our 2nd goal. He's been out for over a year with a serious knee injury. Delighted for him - and us!
