  1. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    Abbey Park is owned by the Council and is designated for Sports and Recreational use. If the Buffs can agree a long term lease for a reasonable annual fee what would be the harm in upgrading the facilities? Largs Thistle, through a benefactor, spent £500k on an artificial surface on a Council owned property. I don't believe that the residents of North Ayrshire would be happy at selling an asset that earns an annual income for £1. Nor do I believe NAC would be daft enough to agree to this. Even if they did agree to sell for £1 the Land is still designated for sports and recreational use which considerably reduces the value of the Land if it were to be used as a guarantee. Potential funders would also look at how any Loan could be re-paid in conjunction with normal operating costs. The best option in my opinion is to determine how much it would cost to build dressing rooms and a Social Club on permanent foundations and then ask supporters for donations of £50 or £100 and arrange fundraisers specifically for upgrading facilities. 400 supporters @ £100 = £40,000.
  2. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    If Buffs moved to Pennyburn would the supporters, especially the older ones, make the effort to go to games? Buffs current park is handy for the town centre bookies and pubs Pennyburn isn't.
  3. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Rutherglen and Cumbernauld must be favourites.

    Could do a lot worse than Davie Greig. He has been successful wherever he has managed. Ignore Irvine Meadow where he did his best and got Club to Ayrshire Final but had no chance of avoiding relegation.
  5. Ayrshire Cup Final - 09/06/18

    If forecast is rain I am sure all fans will be able to shelter in the Stand (for a £1)
  6. Ayrshire Cup Final - 09/06/18

    I hear Largs fans Stand side and Buffs fans opposite Stand where they can enjoy the sunshine.
  7. Meadow v Arthurlie/ Arthurlie v Meadow

    The things that prospective Match Secretaries need to consider for the benefit of the Clubs...not dragging out fixtures when there is no need costing Clubs an extra weeks wages...playing on a Fri rather than a Mon to get a better gate
  8. Irvine Victoria 17/18

    Darvel Leg end we get your drift you don't like the Medda. We don't actually care, you are an embarassment to a wee insignificant team. Who cares what you think.
  9. Best Fixture this weekend for The Neutrals?

    Medda easily the best team, Glens didnt have one shot on goal. Never going to be a classic with what was at stake.
  10. Larkhall Thistle committee announcement

    Players will be keen to give them a winning send off today.
  11. He's easily the thickest poster on here, he actually thinks that comment is smart and continually sullies the reputation of his Club.
  12. End of season pitches

    Summer football will bankrupt the Junior game. Ask any Treasurer of a Junior Club. Gate receipts, Catering, Bar Sales especially, are much lower for midweek fixtures
  13. Why change the habits of a season?
  14. Thats not going to happen
  15. Promoting west region

    Agree with you. Out of interest why don't Buffs apply for a license, you have premises, rather than Occasional Licenses for every game?
