  1. Strange fixture

    Now a week earlier - Friday 7th
  2. South Of Scotland Photos 2018/19

    Great photos. Note though that this one was 3-5, not 2-5. Heston Rovers goals on 13min (1-0), 25min (2-1) and 41 min (3-1). Edusport 19min (1-1), 42min (3-2 : HT score), 54min (3-3), 58min (3-4) and 90min (3-5).
  3. Yoker news today

    This happening? I'd've expected continuing with McKenna Park for that last match, leaving moving back until next season.
  4. Lowland league attendances 2018/19

    Wednesday April 10th, Vale of Leithen 0-3 BSC Glasgow, displaced to Pennypit, I headcounted 51 of us.
  5. South of Scotland attendances 2018/19

    Friday 5th April, Annan Athletic SoSFL 0-3 St Cuthbert Wanderers. I headcounted 33 including kids. Although there should be an 'official' attendance since a gate was being taken - the only way in for spectators was by walking through the players' tunnel (!) at the pitch end of which £2 was collected. Home keeper sent off at 0-1 for deliberate handball, no sub keeper so an outfield player put on the gloves. Handbags near the end with one from each side also getting an early bath.
  6. Junior Day

    And also some from further afield than that - the bloke sat next to me at Peebles who I got chatting with had come over from Switzerland. Apparently there were others from the continent too.
  7. South of Scotland attendances 2018/19

    Wed 27 March, Creetown 1-5 Nithsdale, played under lights at St Cuthbert Wanderers. My headcount was 30 of us.
  8. Clydebank F.C. 2018/19

    BUMP Sat 30th March v Cumnock - at New Tinto (even though Maryhill are Away) any word on intended venues for the remainder? : Sat 13th April v Renfrew (Maryhill have no game, Benburb are Away) Sat 20th April v Pollok (Maryhill and Benburb both have Aways) Wed 1 May v Rob Roy (Maryhill have no game, Benburb are Away) Sat 4 May v Troon (Maryhill have no game, Benburb are Home) with H to Auchinleck and H to Beith both TBA Thanks
  9. Clydebank F.C. 2018/19

    Next home game (Saturday 30th March, v Cumnock) is at Benburb, and with a 3:15pm KO. No surprise given the state of the mudbath handed back to Maryhill after the Cup replay! Anybody know if it's just this one that's going to New Tinto, or has that now become 'home' for the remainder of the season? cheers
  10. How's the grounds looking?

    Juniors up North have made Friday decisions (it is rock solid up here, with frozen-snow cover, the car said -10 this morning!) : http://northregion-jfa.pitchero.com/match-info/fixtures Surely the West ought to have rules that allow clarity to be declared on a Friday, whenever any have absolutely no chance.
  11. In summer-season football, the Moray Welfare league provides Sunday afternoon fare. The most scenic ground of which is Aberlour Villa. And Cullen despite just playing on an unroped pitch has an ascending bank behind, from the top of which there's a nice view across the bay with the pitch in the foreground. There's plenty of overlap at the start and end of the Moray Welfare season with the end of & start of winter-season Saturday football. Else during the height of the summer proper the most scenic summer-Saturday-afternoon venues to combine with are in the North West Sutherland League, e.g. Helmsdale, Lairg and Kinlochbervie have all got great backdrops. Note also that the Skye & Lochalsh summer league is generally 7pm Saturday KOs, some of which can therefore be got to as a double after an afternoon KO. Also look out for the Highland Amateur Cup. For all summer-football clubs, but played on Saturdays, so yields summer-Saturday-afternoon fixtures for clubs who normally only play on midweek nights, e.g. Caithness AFA, Inverness & District AFA (of which Avoch's ground is the most photogenic)... Enjoy.
  12. Gartcairn New Facilities work underway

    First team games at this (existing) other pitch immediately? Or still playing at the MTC pitch for a while until works have advanced? Thanks.
  13. Outsiders for Tomorrow

    Gartcairn are not really at home though - it's being played at Petershill, so as unfamiliar to them as to Lochee United.
  14. Junior Cup 18-19

    Rosyth v Newmains has been switched to become Newmains v Rosyth. Perhaps implying that the set up at the Fleet Grounds 3G is not up to Junior Cup criteria (?)
  15. Defunct Clubs

    Using the same Recreation Park ground on the northern edge of town as the current Insch team play on in the Aberdeenshire Amateurs. It's one of the better AAFA venues but wouldn't pass the criteria for today's Juniors. Insch Juniors finished third in the 1991-92 season.
