  1. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    Thought Buffs were excellent for an hour today. A combination of bad luck and poor finishing prevented us killing the game off with a second goal. Inevitably Petershill came into it at the death but Buffs held on for the points.

    Hi Marlowe no great mystery to the £1 per week. Season tickets were £60 last season thats something like £1.15 a week over the year (half that for concessions) - that gets you your membership.

    Just to put the £40k figure in perspective the “Save the Buffs” campaign from a couple of decades ago raised £10k - stated at the public meeting. The fundamental problem is fund raising is not going to raise the required amount of money.

    Exactly the kind of point that needs looking into itsonlyagame so that the members can be given the facts and vote as they see it.

    The sports club thing never really got discussed. It turned into a rammy about plans not provided/meeting times changed/ promises not delivered etc etc. The focus then moved when it became clear that the stay at Abbey Park contingent had nothing to present to a talk about fundraising and god help us another meeting.
  6. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    Lot of passion for Abbey Park not one sensible word uttered about how to stay there. As a meeting it was shambolic. For me if you can’t be bothered stumping up the £1 a week to be a member you shouldn’t be near a meeting discussing the Buffs future.

    Thing is Ian a lot of the guys who have spent their time and money doing up the Park think it’s not fit for purpose without a massive cash injection. Also believe the dressing room is just the tip of ice-berg regarding issues at the park.

    Take it u didn’t go to AGM and take a look round dressing rooms. They are a disgrace and need replaced immediately. Therein lies the problem - estimated costs - pick a number think £70k was the figure given. The Pennyburn thing is not anyones first choice but where is the funding to come from for new facilities at Abbey Park.
  9. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    It was made clear at the recent AGM why the Sports Club move is being considered - namely the state of the Dressing rooms. This is not a move that is being considered just for the sake of it. At some point it might be a necessity.

    I suspect if the Buffs playing staff was mediocre you might have a point. Given that this is the best side we’ve had in 15 years I suspect any loss in old school Abbey Park diehards will be offset by punters keen to watch a winning side who play a very attractive brand of football.
  11. Scottish Junior Cup next season - byes/rounds

    Good point Khufu2 - you could change it though. Just allocate each region number of places in last 64. Say West region 40, East 16, North 8 and play the required preliminary rounds within each region to get to that point.
  12. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    That would be a helluva signing for Dalry. Only creative central midfielder we had last season.
  13. Scottish Junior Cup next season - byes/rounds

    I can see a lot of sense in keeping the rounds prior to the round with 64 teams within the regions.
  14. Scottish Junior Cup next season - byes/rounds

    Totally agree. I’d play it end August
  15. Scottish Junior Cup next season - byes/rounds

    I’m sure this will be wrong but for me R1 would consist of a single game.
