  1. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Thats exactly what I read too
  2. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    The "News Snippets" in the programme from Pumpherston v Kennoway at the weekend mentioned this.
  3. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Agreed. England' spead of population, reasonably consistent from the border down to Cornwall lends itself to a "pure pyramid". Scotland's spread is kind of skewed as there's so much in the Central Belt.
  4. Todays scores 18/5

    Was at this game covering it for the local paper. My third trip to Pumpherston doing so. Pumpherston's no.8 is Jack Beaumont. But, the one that catches my eye every time I see them is the winger Barry Nicholson (no. 11). Takes all their set pieces. His bicycle kick effort was spectactular, although the Kennoway keeper Robbie Paterson's save was equally good. Paterson had a few other amazing saves, when Pumpherston were throwing everything at it. Kennoway, actually even more so with only 10 men, had a few good chances themselves, but it still came as a surprise when they got that winner. (My son had one of the pies. Didn't look much from the outside, but filling looked tasty! I gratefully finished off the last morsel that he didn't want!)
  5. Title Round Robin 'hood

    Surprised you think that. I was at the match v linlithgow earlier in the season and the crowd was not far short 500.
  6. Title Round Robin 'hood

    Should be some crowd at this game on Saturday. Surely, as well as Broxburn and Bonnyrigg fans, Penicuik fans will be going too!?
  7. Fort William tomorrow

    According to Wick's twitter feed it was the FW keeper got mud in his eye, and needed treatment. Then the ref just abandoned the match.
  8. Fife caravan parks

    Many thanks for the replies folks - much appreciated. I think these Fife parks all seem a little pricey for me, when you consider that i can get three nights at e.g. Eyemouth for £110. I was wanting Fife so I could make a tript to East End Park for Dunfermline v Dundee Utd, but I may well have to pass that up.
  9. Fife caravan parks

    Thanks for the replys folks. Pettycur's cheapest three night stay is £196, which seems really expensive. Looked up Sauchope links but can't find a means of booking a caravan on-line (they have beach huts and Glamping domes right enough)
  10. Fife caravan parks

    Looking to hire a static caravan for the weekend of 15/16/17th March somewhere in Fife. Not overly fussy where, but it'll be me, my wife and 4 year old son, so perhaps one with on site entertainment of some description (but by no means necessary). Ideally I'd only want the Friday and Saturday nights, but if it had to be a three night stay minimum (as in my experience they sometimes are) then so be it. The Internet is normally the best way to book something like this, but I'm having trouble finding something. Anyone able to help / advise?
  11. Falkirk v Dundee United

    Good lad Paton. Not exactly a United legend, but noticed both today and the game before Christmas that he made a point of going over to the United fans to give us a wee acknowledgement. Clearly holds his United days dear

    Some valid points about yesterday's match. Broxburn did make more guilt edged chances over the piece. I was just so impressed with Jeanfield's neat, intricate passing play and some of their players dribbling skills - great to watch. For the avoidance of doubt, I wish Broxburn no harm. Very hospitable club - and great pies to boot!
  13. EoS Conference C chat 2018-19

    Huge day for Broxburn yesterday and the stars seems to be aligning nicely for them. Its theirs to lose. That said, that's three times I've saw them this season and I've yet to be impressed. We'll beaten by Camelon in the cup semi, linlithgow were the better team when Broxburn won 4-3, and Jeanfield were the better side yesterday. Broxburn may well drop points in the run in.

    £2k just to apply!! Wow - would like to see the breakdown of that figure. Seems astronomical, and thoroughly discouraging to teams looking to apply. I still can't see what Civil Service Strollers have in place that Broxburn don't (granted I don't have an inside knowledge)
  15. EoS Conference C chat 2018-19

    What do Broxburn need to do their ground to get a licence that amounts to £10k?? And more over, having been to SFA licensed Christie Gilles park a year or so ago (a very pleasant visit too i might add), what does it have that Albyn Park doesn't? Unless i'm not getting a proper understanding of 'SFA licensed'......(entirely possible!)
