  2. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    This is becoming tedious ....last week a guy was saying he HATED St Roch's because of what a couple of fans allegedley shouted at Camby ( two years ago) - I find it a bit over the top to actually hate a club and actively want them to loose because you don't like what one or two people shout ,,,, now we have someoneone suggesting things were shouted and players gesticulated - I honestly never saw or heard anything like that at Whotletts - a couple of our fans were OTT with shouts but nothing sectarian that I heard On the other hand we get abuse at a number of grounds we go to because we are " ******s" in some people's eyes - I won't name the club's because they are not responsible for the behaviour and antics of what some people shout at their grounds .......and I fully respect the club's Sectarianism is rife in Junior Football amongst a very small minority I have heard it at many grounds - ******, Terrier, and the new shout of "peados" - it is embarrassing but in no way are any of the club's responsible but let's not pretend it does not happen. We encourage self policing at St Roch's but in occassion there will still be one or two things that are shouted from our terrace that should not be - we recognise the problem and have and will continue to deal with it It would be very easy for me to adopt a stance were every time something that is derogatory is put to me I catalogue it on here and name the club's- unfortunatley I believe this would be counter productive and cause more harm than good as rational behaviour is impossible when people live in such a polarised existence It is the 21st century let's give it a rest and enjoy the football for what it is As I have said many times - St Roch's is a club formed by an Irish Parish Priest, we are names after a Saint, we wear green, we play at a park in the Garngad named after a Celtic Player - we are proud of who we are and will not hide from that - but that should not make us a platform for division- in our support we have people from many creeds cultures and backgrounds with an open to all attitude. The next time someone following St Roch's should something sectarian you can all be assured that the majority will tell them it is not acceptable - so the ask to others is - if you hear someone in your support calling us a sectarian name because of who we are - maybe you should have a word. This was not meant to be a rant
  3. Scottish Cup DrawTuesday

    With 32 teams and 9 of the from the West Premier the odds increase and decrease as the draw goes on E.g.- if Talbot get drawn 1st out the hat - the chance of being paired with another Premier team is just over 25%. - if a Premier Team was to come out the hat 3rd there would still be 6 from the remaining 29 - so just over 20% - however if the next 3 ties do not include ANY Premiership clubs that would leave 7 from 24 so getting back to around 25% Ps - the odds above might be totally wrong and someone who knows better might be able to correct - but for the sake of prediction I am going to go with Two All West Premiership ties

  8. Long Away Days

    W went to Ellon a few seasons ago and booked the players into holiday inn in Aberdeen on the Friday night - it sounds extravagant but you get a room for 3 for £45 Was great for team bonding and fresh as a Daisy on the Saturday Would highly recommend
