  1. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    Our constitution isn’t very good, a new one has been written by the previous committee but we didn’t bring it in. At the moment you become a member of the club and your entitled to a season ticket, sort of the wrong way round.
  2. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    The Dirrans will be using changing room 1 for every home game, and parking would be extended
  3. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    We use changing room 2 every Mon and Wed with 22 players and have to no issues, 5 showers and a toilet per team Go down have a look, Brian Jardine will happily show you around.

    For basic SFA license it needs a stand, some fencing off and not much more, it has enough unused building at the pitch side for catering, committee room and toilets and there’s an area for a match day bar

    As far as I know there’s never really been the capital to do that level of work, we aren’t blaming anyone, committees have been applying for funding and getting refused since IDC, Irvine Bay and recently NAC, it also isn’t the councils place to keep junior football grounds up to scratch, as we all the councils are skint as well, no help for Dalry, no help for Saltcoats.

    It was mentioned by 2 teams this season. The bar, containers and pie cabins have been broken into this year

    I’ve been on and off the committee for the last 8 years, I worked away and moved back to the town 3 years ago and was the only person to put their hand up when John Bennets committee stood down enmass, didn’t see your hand???

    The money spent this year at Abbey Park was mostly mine and money raised by Colin Evans. I joined the board at KSC once it became clear there was no incoming changing rooms to give the Buffs at least a chance to still play in the town should they fail. The figure of the leased modular building hasn’t been given to the committee, you’ll also need to add £4k for architect and planning fees, £4k for foundations, £2k for the drain and £2470 to upgrade the power, so call it £13k upfront and then £6k per year, about 10% of the total budget going on providing a changing room, if you don’t think we’ve looked at this then your information is wrong. Its in the paper when I joined the KSC board in Feb 18, do your research rather than turning up with a half baked ideas, that’s what got the club in this state. The previous head of regeneration called us idiots for buying a modular building and told us no less than £200k to building a changing room, now he’s behind a modular building idea, he’s telling people the drain can be done for £1,000, his own previous price was £6k. Again as I said at the AGM I’m happy to step aside if someone has a decent plan.

    In the case of John he had Joe and Latta in front of him for that position, he’s signed with Dirrans this season to get game time but still a big part of our future. We have a full youth setup and it’s now time to start at least trying to use it. Given the situation with the changing rooms we don’t want to over commit on the squad. Should we have to ground share who knows where that would leave us.

    Liam isn’t leaving
  11. SJFA AGM this Saturday

    This is true, we understand the decision, but rules being dished out on individual occassions was a bit hard to take, can’t remember an understanding management committee when we were deducted 19 points for something there still isn’t a rule for and nearly went out the game.
  12. West of Scotland Cup

    Just saw the West of Scotland cup going into the Medda club in a Lidl bag, class!
  13. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    That was actually Scotstoun stadium photoshopped, we don’t own the park would be more like this over a few years
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    There can't be a rule as the it would also have to be agreed by all national associations, ie UEFA and the SJFA arn't in UEFA
  15. Junior football, what is the future?
