  1. Craigmark deserved their victory. Can't argue. Our red card was deserved and we didn't really test them. Gutted as unlike others this cup is an important gauge and confidence booster. Anyway, onwards and upwards and well done to the lads at Craigmark
  2. Quick query, does Bathgate Thistle have a social club at the ground for our supporters, committee etc and for post match for the playing staff to have a few drinks for an hour or two? If not is there a recommended pub close by? It's a long while since we have been through! Thanks in advance
  3. The form in the ADL for promotion has always been win 16, lose 3 and draw 3. Generally anything less than that and you're not going up. Darvel, Kello and Winton are the only teams that can currently achieve this target. Maybe this year will be different but the history of the league tells you that will pretty much guarantee you're up. A very interesting run in ahead!!
  4. Can't understand why us and Hurlford have no fixture? Does anybody have an answer to that?
  5. Anytime Fabi, you and your team were a privilege to host! Some team you have there, Junior management must surely be on the cards!
  6. We should say that Ross is a great lad and it's disappointing for all concerned that things haven't worked out. He goes with our best wishes and thanks for all he's done.
  7. Ross Robertson is available for transfer, a mutual agreement between Management Team and player.
  8. Let's not forget the return of the legend that is John Redmond back to his old stomping ground!! The pitch is in great condition, even beating some senior games today! Great effort Gus and team!
  9. Ha ha, you couldn't script it! In fairness, I did order the kit in June! Still, it's a great strip and the lads seem to like it, that's the main thing!!
  10. How can it be a diddy cup with Kilbirnie, Cumnock, Beith and Talbot in the semis!?!?! 4 cracking teams right there, amongst the best in the country! Good luck to the finalists
  11. Came away with a draw from the Dam Park today, probably just about deserved! Whitletts were excellent across the board today and I especially liked the number 2, Andrew I think his second name is. Neil, Jamie and Davie have got the team playing really well, not that I'm surprised, we were gutted to lose big Neil! John Dalton and all the team were excellent and the hospitality shown towards us was first class, even Jean in the kitchen looking out for the young Troon supporters with juice and sweets! I really wish you lads all the best this season, think that's the first time I've said that in about 7 years! A credit to Junior Football and the town of Ayr! Good luck and keep it up lads. Jimmy K
  12. Well Adipure, that being the case I'm really disappointed in Gaz. He sat in the dining room in my house and the conversation was very different than you're saying. Shame that others are dragging his name into it. Given his personal situation, he's even requested in the past that he misses football to work away given the money the lads can earn. That's fact and not conjecture from random people on here. His brother Glen was employed at Gazs request so hopefully none of this nonsense distracts them from real life. People with nothing to lose on here causing trouble for their own ends. Dean Keenan, Dale Moore, Dale Shirkie and Gordon Burns all have to work away and do the night shifts, that's what the job involves. To suggest Gaz is any different no matter where he chooses to play football is quite frankly a joke. Good luck in your rantings!
  13. To be fair, he's got a lot of responsibility on his shoulders for a young guy. Probably fair enough in terms of going pro but sure Junior would still be fine.
  14. Nope, as it stands he's not. I have no idea why he would need to go and play amateur football though?
  15. Yep, I'd also be interested to hear about this as well!
  16. Just to clarify this point Cantona, this has nothing to do with AUFC and is the sole venture of AUFA. It is not a replacement for reserve team football and the U20s now provide this function within the game. If the AUFA feel that this is of benefit to the players within their system and that it will help prepare them more readily to break through to the first team then its an understandable move. The other point is that it should not be underestimated the contribution that AUFA have made to Junior football locally with many Clubs having AUFA graduates on their playing staff. If it is either by loan deal as they are still with AUFA or if its a player who has moved on and they are now contracted to a Junior Club, the coaching of these young players has helped the Junior game locally. At Troon, 4 of our regular starting 11 have came through the AUFA ranks. In the long run, Annbank will benefit from having a good core of young talented players who have experience at Junior level. They will then be able to focus resources on upgrading facilities and enhancing the bank balance! Cant be a bad thing longer term.
  17. Is this game at Lugar tomorrow? Might be a daft question but just checking! Cheers
  18. Last night against Beith 8 of the 14 players used by us were 22 or under including a 17 yr old and 18 yr old, the 18 yr old lad won us a penalty and scored the 3rd goal as it goes! Not bad considering our position in the league! I know Beith had a few youngsters in the squad as well.
  19. Plus the imaginary points table is wrong as Pollok can only finish on 36. We are guaranteed 4th spot now with second and third place down to if Kilbirnie and Hurlford win their games
  20. I think this thread is verging on vanity!!! For me Beith are a big club because year on year they remain at the top with ages devoted helpers but with a good support!! How can anybody take Glenafton out this equation with all they have achieved, a proper club with proper people!! Talbot are an enigma at all grades of football in Scotland but it can only take them so far! No such thing as a big junior club in Scottish, UK or World football terms! Let's all be happy that we have a competitive grade of football with some history behind it! To get in the real world though we must join the SPFL pyramid structure, and that's a financial and moral fact. Sorry if that upsets some.
  21. To be fair Hertha, it's a total farce that the game is off. Nice fuel for Burnsy and co in the dressing room when we got there!!
  22. Games off definitely, rain has been mental all day!
