  1. Just a pity ( for us) that we missed the completely open goal at 0-0!
  2. We attended The Battle of The Vales today. Home team will be kicking themselves for not taking the chances they created in the first half. Fell out of it 2nd half, particularly not getting left back Ryan Cherrie involved who had a very effective 1st half, including his long throws on a tight park. Home side finished with 9 men ( 4 yellows). First sending off with 25 mins to go will have taken its toll. As a neutral it was amusing to watch the needle develop between the Voc lino and someone involved with VoL. When you are not involved yourself it always seems pointless but, I've been there!
  3. Lanark v AWR Kilbirnie v Blantyre
  4. Lanark game off today. Our stands and changing rooms have been blown away! Awful news for the club.
  5. Lanark 1 Yoker 3 4 new faces today, including the manager up front. One or two surprise departures too. Played with shape and discipline today, despite losing captain to injury after 15 minutes. Manager missed couple of good chances 1st half. Went into a deserved 1-0 lead on 55 minutes and then inexplicably lost 3 goals in the last 20 minutes, the last on the whistle when everyone had gone up for a last gasp corner. Disappointing result but encouraging signs.
  6. Simon Eeles and Andrew Souter have been announced as Lanark's new management team. Start of a new era.
  7. Meant to say by Lanark! Our main striker, Chucky Watt was missed as he is a handful and makes a difference. His knee went on him at work this week and it looks like he is out for the season. We set up different tactically yesterday to prevent being over run, which largely worked. We have some good individuals but we don't have legs in midfield. The centre back pairing is good but that was only Dom's 2nd game this season (number 4). Cammy Lawson, our captain, has been excellent all season, otherwise we'd have lost even more goals. I don't know the crowd. We always get a reasonable home support and are always well represented at away games. My son and I went to Neilston to watch your game and knew we were in for a test. I like your big centre half. Very competitive team. Good luck for the rest of the season
  8. I understand that our (temporary) management team have stepped aside to be replaced by some lads coming in from Blantyre. I'd like to thank Colin, Spike and Craig for all their efforts. Great lads and we've had some good times. Unfortunately Chucky Watt is out for the remainder of the season, which is a huge blow to us.
  9. Dogged display by Lanark today. All square until 2nd half. We spurned a few good chances during the game but their keeper never had a save to make all game, unlike ours who was on top form. Better team won but we gave a reasonable account of ourselves.
  10. Wishaw (aka Lanark Old Boys) 3 Lanark 3 We deserved our point, albeit we equalised in 87th minute following a keeper blunder. We've been overdue a wee break like that. Our very thin squad ( numbers, not waistlines) is being stretched. Captain Cammy Lawson coming off ill after 20 mins was a blow but the lads responded well to the subsequent reshuffle. League table doesn't make for pretty reading.
  11. Did The Gow have a player sent off in the first minute at Maybole last Saturday?
  12. Great to see RA get their first league win of the season and to keep a clean sheet to put the icing on their cake.
  13. Went to see Neilston lose 2-1 at home to St Rochs today. Very little between the teams but overall felt result was fair. Home side ran out of ideas 2nd half. Neilston equaliser and St Rochs winners were both excellent goals. Very competitive game without every getting out of hand Pitch was in amazing condition, considering the weather recently and barely cut up at all.
  14. Troon 3 Lanark 1 One down in 52 seconds, I feared the worst but then Lanark dominated , missed 3 good chances before equalising and then gave away a 2nd before half time. Wee Chucky Watt almost scored a world to equalise but we then ran out of steam against a superior team. Only had a squad of 13. Gave away 3 really poor goals but, played very well in patches
  15. Lanark 3 St Ants 3 3 times we allowed them to equalise. Missed a great chance to go 2 up when we hit the post. Our keeper had a couple of excellent saves whereas I don't recall any saves of note for the St Ants keeper. That said, apart from the aforementioned post we had one saved off the line and hit the bar in the last few minutes. A good point for such a makeshift 13.
