  1. West Region / Clydebank (hypothetical)

    What about a backstop - purely temporarily of course!!!
  2. Floodlit Match 28th December

    Good piece of initiative from both clubs, they can now expect a severe reprimand from the Blazers lol
  3. Yoker news today

    Not been on for a while so here is the latest news. Maurice George has left the club by mutual consent & Kenney McComish has resigned as coach. A new management team will be in in place early in the New Year, Peter McKenna & Tam Montgomery from Harmony Row U21s. On a sadder note, committee member Jimmy "Flash" McMonagal passed away on 17 December, his funeral will be on 28th December at Dalnottar Crematorium at 3.30pm. Away to Maryhill tomorrow, weather permitting obviously, 1.45pm KO.

    Weather permitting, the Whe Ho are away to Glasgow Perthshire tomorrow, 1.45pm KO.
  5. Pete Shelly dies

    Pete Shelley (63) ex lead singer with the Buzzcocks has died of a suspected heart attack according to media reports. They may not have been to everyone's liking but I saw them several times & they were one of the support bands on the Pistol's '76 Anarchy Tour.
  6. Yoker news today

    The Whe Ho are at home tomorrow v Royal Albert, 1.45pm KO (weather permitting). I'll be going down to the ground early to check the pitch so keep an eye on the website for a possible postponement.

    Greg Cree in dubious circumstances.
  8. Yoker news today

    Worst league performance of the season thus far. Competed well enough in a strangely lethargic 1st half, I think the Shotts lads had their night-oot heids on LOL Lost two quick goals at the start of the 2nd half & that was that basically. Yet another red card though & two more injuries sustained, Elalial Hadji limped off & Andy Campbell done his hamstring.
  9. Yoker news today

    Andy Campbell for being fouled & punched on the back of the head on the way down, first game back after a bad concussion at Cambuslang, called the ref an idiot. Greg McBride for simulation (he slipped) 2nd yellow. The work is allegedly starting in January but i'll believe when I see it, possibly sharing with the Ants although I'd prefer somewhere with a bit of cover instead.

  11. Yoker news today

    A hard-fought 2-2 draw on Saturday for a 9-man Whe Ho with possibly the worst refereeing display I've this season thus far. A card-happy wee arsehole who was unwilling to listen to reason, he even sent off our linesman after he stated the ball was out from a dozen yards away!!!! Needless to say our chap took exception to this, words were said & off he went.
