    Bonnyrigg Rose
  1. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Bryan Young was there but his hand was strapped up, understand he may have broken something.
  2. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    He's the Under 19 keeper
  3. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Couple of new signings in this evenings team, presumably on loan. Jesus Garcia Tena from Stenhousmuir and Kyle McClung of Edinburgh City.
  4. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    That was never on the cards after Deveronvale beat us in the Scottish.
  5. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Not at all, I fully expect us to win the Quintuple this season [emoji3]
  6. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Touched a nerve? We don't have a squad of 20, we've used 20 players over the course of the season, 2 of whom have left the club and a third has been out on loan since early on, compare that to say Dunipace who've used 49 I think at the last count. The 'youth' players I refer to will come from the Under 19 side if required, we've had their goalkeeper in the squad a few times this season. Finally I don't see the word meaningless in my post, I said nothing to play for, perhaps I should have qualified that with 'other than pride' the conference is won, the squads been rotated most of the season, that certainly won't change now. The club want to win every single game but you have to be realistic about it and ensure the strongest squad is available for the most important games which, at the moment are the round robin and the South Challenge Cup Final.

    Bonnyrigg don't have a big squad, we've only used 20 (I think) players all season. As long as we can avoid injuries it'll be fine although one or two did pick up knocks last night. The next 2 Saturdays are league games against Bo'ness and Eyemouth but there's nothing to play for in them, the conference is already won. Wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of the youth players in the squad over the next few weeks.
  8. Coldstream v Penicuik

    Don't see the issue with it personally, its not happening every week, and is it really any different to say Jeanfield going to LTHV midweek and having to deal with rush hour traffic around Edinburgh? Wasn't 50 miles also the supposed midweek travel limit in the juniors.
  9. Club Licencing

    Quite simply when you're pushed for time you do a deal for what you can get your hands on quickly. The lights were sourced very shortly after it was brought up that we needed them, they aren't new.
  10. The one thing that surprised me was that Harvey must have spoken to Robbie Horn before taking the job and would be well aware of the behind the scenes goings on. I get that everyone wants a crack at league football but has his confidence/arrogance (delete as appropriate) gotten the better of him here. When Bonnyrigg were looking for a new manager (when Horn left for Berwick and before he came back) Harvey was expected to be in the running but I understand it was the players who put a stop to it actually happening.
  11. Admission prices list

    Was £3 flat rate when Bonnyrigg were there in the League. EDIT: Dalkeith, Jeanfield and Sauchie were all £6 when we visited and Stirling Uni EoS was a donation.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    Its nothing to do with the West coming in, the issue is, and always has been, the shitshow that's been suggested for the East. Bring the West on board, EoS absorbs East Region clubs below the dividing line and the problem goes away. The East, West and South then play off for whatever promotion slots can be negotiated once enough clubs are licensed. After that its up to the SFA and SJFA to sort the issues in the North, which includes the clubs North of the Tay because that's where they belong.
  13. Junior Day

    I also heard a couple of locals complaining that they'd ramped up the prices in the pie hut too. Supply and demand I suppose, take the opportunity to make extra money when its there.
  14. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    We don't have a free date until April 27th so it'll likely be that weekend, the only other alternative is that we play the game on a Monday night as all the Wednesdays are occupied until May 8th.
  15. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    We're currently on 21 consecutive wins since the defeat at Deveronvale, its 16 league games and 5 in the cup.
