  1. Just posted a similar post on the EOS site. Counting down days as a neutral to see Darvel v Tranent in a couple of weeks. Unusually I've not had the pleasure of seeing either team live this season. So who should I be looking out for from a Darvel perspective - a solid centre half, an attack minded fullback, a defensive midfielder etc etc Great time of year for the non league - just a pity there isn't a more fluid approach to promotion/relegation re spots available. Talked one of my mates who wouldn't normally dream of going to a game that doesn't involve one half of the Old Firm into going - really hope this game delivers........I'm in absolute no doubt it will! Like Glenconner, think I'll take in Tranent v St Cuthbert this weekend first.

  3. The 7 clubs you mention are the same ones I had with lights - a quarter of the NJ clubs had lights prior to BOD leaving for the HL. Hopefully in time some of those will look towards licensing although facilities tend to be a bit more basic in the NJ's.
  4. Love it, lol. With electricity through the roof, perhaps the airport could no longer afford landing lights, and so Dyce FC to the rescue! Longer term as you've alluded to, the more licensed clubs the better as the play-offs certainly deserve better.
  5. Great news re the floodlights - when did they go up?
  6. I see from the SPFL website that the League 2 play off final dates are the 7th and 14th May. Are the LL v HL play off final dates therefore the 23rd and 30th Apr, or do they incorporate midweek dates?
  7. I was at this fixture a few years back in the Scottish when Banks O Dee hosted the Rose in the Scottish and again were victorious. Honestly not that much of a shock that's it happened again - Banks O Dee are for real (remember the Highland League clubs turned down their application a few years back under the misnomer that they weren't truly a Highland club when it was well known it was purely down to how successful they were) and for the few uninitiated who aren't aware, next year will be very interesting when BOD go toe to toe with the best the Highland league has to offer. Watch this space!
  8. Took this game in as a neutral. Was very impressed at how the Buffs flew out the traps and dominated most of the first half. Whilst fully deserving their 1-0 HT lead, I have to say that their domination resulted in little (if any) clear cut chances other than the goal. The second half however was a completely different affair. Complete role reversal in terms of domination, however how Darvel didn't score 3 or 4, maybe more is beyond me. A combination of outstanding saves, the woodwork, and just being plain unlucky kept the scoreline from being completely overturned. Looks like this race could go to the end with these two, with Talbot likely to be right up there gunning for top spot.......without ruling out the likes of Clydebank and Pollok either. And great to see Kilwinning's new abode, and the improvements they've already made - in particular the floodlights that came on for the second half. All the best to both teams who clearly belong in the Lowland.
  9. Not a huge fan of the neutral venue aspect but tempted to pop along out of intrigue. Took in the BSC v St Peter's game earlier today (technically yesterday now).
  10. Is it still 34, I have 35 listed but could be wrong. I'm wondering if you've included Inverkeithing with their ground switch which is now a floodlit 3G. Also, I came across this interesting article highlighting (near the bottom) that Armadale now have lights too. What's unclear though is that if its just training lights only.

  11. Yes Hibs did have a team in the non league system, and guess what, they started at the bottom tier available to them. OF Colts should be no different. The irony being that if they had just started at the bottom at the beginning of this process, they’d have likely already made their way to SPFL level by now. Bit of fairness goes a long way!
  12. So true. For me it dates back several years when they were in tier 4 and yet still saw fit to offer Ian Black something like £8k a week to get them out a part time league. I understand its hard to blood youngsters in a two team league when one single defeat can get you lambasted from all angles. But with the players they had when they were in the fourth tier, they could easily have got out of that with the talented youngsters they had at their disposal. And whilst I used to be one of his biggest supporters, and I still believe (fundamentally) that he is a decent guy, I just can't see 'Podcast George' (patented term) taking the moral high ground............but I live in hope.....as that is certainly what he used to believe in (and stand for) prior to his Old Firm love affair.
  13. Forgot about Stevie C. Decent player and a good lad too - came back for one or two functions even after he'd left the club.
  14. Very similar thought process for this year. Had it not been for Covid, I'd have already seen St Cadoc's and Drumchapel etc etc. Hope to see them this year instead along with all the newbies who have been accepted from the Paisley area, Bridgeton etc etc, as well as Campbelltown too. Loving the prospect of all the new grounds!
  15. So basically my background is that I'll go see a few Hearts games, plus Clyde too as they are my local team. But my real passion is non league footie......so most Saturdays I can be seen at a LL/WOS/EOS/SOS.....even a Highland game in order to see every team in the country. There's often no rhyme or reason to it. Basically whatever fixture takes my fancy, regardless of distance, I will make my way there. How bout you?
