  1. Unfortunately Cumnock and Greenock have had to withdraw but Maryhill are now taking part.
  2. The junior legends return after a three year break when they contest the Alex Gourlay Cup at New Tinto Park on Saturday July 2nd. The event will be played as a 7-a-side format across the pitch with events kicking off at 1pm. All teams involved are mainly made up of ex players from the sides they are representing and promises to be a great day once again, we are waiting on one team to confirm but at present the following sides will be represented, Benburb, Port Glasgow, Greenock, Kilbirnie Ladeside, Larkhall Thistle, St Roch's, Petershill, Tantallon Victoria, Arthurlie, Cumnock, Auchinleck Talbot, Largs Thistle, PG & Dac's All Stars, Clydebank, Beith, Neilston, and Ashfield. The action kicks off at 1pm and entry is £5 for adults with OAP's and children free. Hopefully there will be a good turnout for what is always a great day.
  3. Hi, sorry for the late arrival but.... David Fulton, Digger, is also the record appearance maker for Junior Scotland which as things are will never be beaten.
  4. There will be NO cherry picking..... they said!
  5. I guess I best own up and admit you were right.....
  6. My last comment on this will be this, everything through time will come out in the wash. I have seen documents, know several people who have been to every meeting etc. I am not saying for one second that everything we have posted is 100% factual, I will say that everything we have posted to our knowledge is factual. Bottom line as clubs we all have to make our own decisions that are best for each of us. For anyone willing to throw dirt at any club irrespective of their stance, think again or better still if you have a voice get involved with your local club and make that voice heard.
  7. Can I just say that Arthur McGettigan has given many years to Arthurlie FC not just in his position, various positions, he has always done what he thought was right for the club. Right or wrong I have the upmost respect for him because apart from his shirt and tie events he is down at Dunterlie Park fixing divots, doing this that the other, the things that punters don't see but moan if its not done. All the best Arthur and after speaking to a few people today I can confirm that if not all then most of the original statement seems to be true. No point in replying he said she said.... lets let it run its course and see where we are. Final point, for all those having an opinion and getting angry, join the committee and you will have a say. To everyone from anywhere keep your family close, sty safe and stay healthy.
  8. Due to the current situation regarding CV, Pulse Radio has advised that no guests will be permitted into the station from this week only. Therefor Nugent4nil will be hanging up its microphones until things change. We will be back but in the meantime we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year, good helth to you and your families. Dynamite Dave and Borning Bob x
  9. Sorry for singling you out, it wasn't a personal thing more to make a point. I have been transparent on here from day one basically because I host a radio show and my name is Robert Burns. I love junior football, I love the way we always come together etc. I also realise that times are definitely changing, and adapt or die is probably true at the moment. I kinda like to think that this year will be the 12th Legends event I have arranged and I am also coming up for nine years on the radio promoting junior football clubs that I am entitled to an opinion. I have been wrong on many occasions, at other times I might have said something you or others didn't agree with but... I have given guests a platform to speak and while I maybe didn't agree with them I gave them air space because... life is all about opinions as is football. I would honestly like to think that although you don't agree with my thoughts, if you listened a few weeks ago, I did state all go or nobody goes don't leave any clubs behind, now that seems the way Talbot are going and I applaud them. I have spoken to Burnie Man on a few occasions and in years gone past he helped me regards the Arthurlie programme, I don't agree with lots of things he says but I have the upmost respect for his views because I know who he is and what he has done for his club and juniors as a whole. Yourself though are sat behind a user name and trawling my twitter account from last year? I just have to ask one question...... why? Anyway all the best to all the present junior clubs, and all of the football community getting through this virus. Take good care folks
  10. Thursday nights show with Graeme Ramage http://listenagain.canstream.co.uk/pulse/index.php?id=10802
  11. Tonight's show with Gartcairn's Alex McDowall http://listenagain.canstream.co.uk/pulse/index.php?id=10693
  12. Gutted but not surprised its come to this. So many with ideas and better ways to do things but arent willing to actually do anything.
  13. It wasnt advertised on any forum as it was a secret for Jimmy. I was soley responsible for organising the night and tried my best to get as many along as I could. It willl happen again next year regards the hall of fame and it will be made public.
  14. Last comment tonight, maybe for a while. So many have had a go at me for my personal opinions but most on here know me or at least know my name, I have never hid that. Robert Burns Arthurlie supporter.... just does my nut in that all the ones having a pop are behind user names. I am NOT for a second saying any of your view points are wrong or indeed right but FFS at least have the courage of your convictions and name yourselves. We are all in this because we love juniors fitbaw times ARE changing and we all have different ideas how we go forward so be open be honest and also if any of you fancy coming on the radio your more than welcome.
  15. I have and to go forward things would change, if you can give me the benefits of moving I will happily look over them. My one and only worry and personal thought is that if ones team goes we all go I don't want teams left behind that end up closing shop all to join a league where if you get promotion two years running your playing against a ten year old team with no park and zero support apart from family.
  16. I absolutely get what youve said and I do agree with most, what I dont get is the hunger for clubs to become senior as the likes of Pollok for example have bigger crowds than the bottom two senior leagues. Senior football in Scotland imo has too many clubs, many junior supporters follow clubs because they are junior clubs, lots of them have a favorite 'big' team so the likes of Arthurlie moving up would mean they lose support to St Mirren and the old firm
  17. I may pop along, will you be there ? Nope im in hibernation mode
  18. With the current weather conditions Arthurlie have arranged a provisionally friendly for tomorrow. Its Arthurlie v Ashfield @ The Cowan Park Astro Barrhead with an 11am kick off. Obviously this depends on both sides games being called off which will be notified tomorrow morning.
  19. Thanks you so much, a reasonable and qualified opinion which I may agree or not with but the fact youve actually taken time is appreciated. Regards the show, anyone is welcome along they have free reign to talk so opinions vary,if you fancy coming along one Thursday night to Barrhead you willbe more than welcome.
  20. Correct Peter, my worry is we go or stay but some will be left behind and iMO id love the West Juniors to either go enmass or stay.
  21. The bit about knowing a players name and nickname, absolutely embarrassing. Can't believe the Linlithgow fans don't know their players names now..... I get you, sorry, I mean if they go up to the SPLF
  22. So you 'think' there are spaces for new senior teams while the likes of Pollok have a bigger home support than most in the bottom two divisions?
  23. Jexit will obviously happen, as in the Juniors leaving the current set up but for what? A chance to be promoted into the Lowland League that has clubs younger than your match day mascots who have a zero fan base, more traveling, more costs in traveling, less 'local' derby's. YES there is that carrot of the 'BIG' Scottish Cup and the chance of entering the bottom tier of the SPFL which is dying on its arse and will mean you have to have floodlights, emergency services, raise your prices, etc. I follow Junior football because I love it, name another grade where your team can win a cup but you know you will hold it that night? Name a grade where you know every player by first and nicknames and can share a bear with them after. The list is endless, my huge worry is that some will go and others will be left behind hence IMO if one goes we all go if not we stay as we are and look at the possibilities. I love junior football and must state that while many make comments about this and that that member clubs vote in the West committee and clubs vote in their representative's so if your a member and not happy do something rather than sit on here and moan.
  24. I personally think that the best team I have seen this season are Blantyre Vic's football wise. Young squad, want to play football, brilliant but inconsistent as you always get with young players. Darvel are the team to beat because they have the best players, the best set up and a very professional approach. I have praised, as has Davie, Darvel on countless occasions on the show because of what they have done on and off the park, off the park is a thing of beauty and more power to you and them. Whatever happens regards Jexit you will finish in a promotion place without a doubt. Cracking gaffer and a squad filled with quality that can play silky football or roll up their sleeves and play fitbaw and grind out results. I wish you well going forward and love the fact youve put something into a club that obviously means a lot to you and I seriously hope everything goes to plan as so far results on and off the park are very impressive. Only issue I have is you always go on the defensive, take the credit, take the knocks, Blantyre Vics are a better football team to watch but you will finish above them and I wish you well. Its Thursday nights in Barrhead if and when you fancy coming along as a guest where you will be given a platform and made very welcome. Robert
  25. Have you listened back to find out yet?
