  1. Friendly Result Ashfield 0-5 Rob Roy Another good result for our young squad as we continue to prepare for the season. A hard fought first half against a hard working Ashfield side ended with The Rabs leading 1-0 with a goal from Craig Truesdale. The 2nd half seen a number of changes as usual with these games and it seen an improved display with another goal from Truesdale to put us 2-0 up. Goals from Robbie Leighton, Alex Cassels and another goal from 20s striker Sean Mcmonagle sealed an emphatic victory for the lads. #MonTheRoy[emoji837][emoji835]
  2. Friendly Result. Kilsyth 3-4 KRR Tough game for the lads today as Kilsyth made it difficult for us throughout. Goals from Alex Cassells, Danny O'Halloran made the score 2-2 at half time. In the 2nd half Development forward Sean Mcmonagle scored to make it 3-2 to The Rabs. A late penalty scored by Kilsyth looked to have secured the hosts a draw but a last minute goal from a brilliantly struck free kick by Michael Touhy grabbed a win for Rob Roy. Lots to work on as the season nears but that's 5 wins in 6 for us so far. #MonTheRoy[emoji837][emoji835]
  3. Old names and habits take time to get rid of. Hopefully we get back home and the local community get to know who and what we represent moving forward.
  4. The club are happy to get this deal done as a number of WoSFL Premier clubs were after the player, but The Rabs are delighted that former EKFC defender Conor Bell has agreed to join for this season.
  5. Friendly Result. Gartcairn 1-2 Rob Roy Playing on a newly laid artificial surface The Rabs performed really well against an experienced side on Saturday in Airdrie. The young Rob Roy side fell behind in the first half but replied soon after with a goal from Scott Gold. Into the 2nd half and after coming on as a substitute Alex Cassells secured a win with a neat finish. Thanks to Gartcairn for the invite and it was good to see ex Rabs man JC Hutchinson in goals and who performed brilliantly for them. MonTheRoy
  6. Jimbaxters, [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23], I'm not hard enough to intimidate anyone. I shall review all my posts in future. You are what you write I'm told.
  7. Good result tonight in our Friendly against Drumchapel United. A 5-1 victory and our most complete 90 mins in our pre season schedule so far. Goals were scored by Robbie Leighton, Craig Truesdale and a thunderbolt of a free kick by Michael McCanespie to give us 3-0 lead at half time. Drumchapel pulled a goal back in the early stages of the second half as Manager Stewart Maxwell made changes. One of the subs Jay McInally scored two goals on his first start to seal the victory. The team moves onto Saturday and another game away to Gartcairn.
  8. Jimbaxters, I've not got a clue what your on about. Too cryptic for me.
  9. 2 Friendlies this week for The Rabs. First one is a game against Drumchapel United WOS on Wednesday evening at Dalziel. Next up is the first game at Gartcairns newly relaid surface at Airdrie on Saturday. As intimidated these games are closed to supporters and we ask that everyone respects this. Tough tests for our young side and hopefully keeps the lads ticking over until we hopefully get a start date for the league to begin.
  10. Friendly game today was very much a game of two halves. Rob Roy were excellent in the first half and it was very much against the run of play when we fell 1-0 behind. As always in these games teams make a number of changes ( we made and the flow of the game is disrupted. Fair to say Caledonian Braves were better than The Rabs in the 2nd half and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Good game for us to take against quality opposition.
  11. A couple of friendlies played so far and apart from, 2 players carrying ankle injuries , every player has had game time. We have even managed to play one or two of our 20s development squad. Hopefully the good work continues this weekend against Caledonian Braves.
  12. If we start our season on the 10th of October ( I think that's a date that's been mentioned)...there are about 32/33 Saturdays between then and the end of may, playing a 38 game league program is gonna be difficult. Assuming there is going to be postponements, any cup competitions will be virtually impossible. Also to think about playing SJFA cup matches from last season is mental. Really difficult situation for administrators. I say all of this not knowing if ANY football will be possible at our level [emoji17]
  13. Delighted the club have got the Robbie Leighton deal over the line, should be a vital player for us this season.
  14. Also signed ......................Scott Gold a striker from Hillington AFC Craig Truesdale a midfielder from Stirling Albion
