Good effort all round. Will still continue to give money to the club. We must be around £4k off the current target?

Looks as if we've fallen short by about 15 tickets if all the sales have been counted.☹️

I’m confused as to how it’s “Full Time” with over 5 hours on the countdown.

Full time was at 19.00 hrs BST but sales are still being counted. Winners declared at 20.00hrs.

Think our shambles of a defence and having ridiculously bad luck with injuries to key players helped there.

After promotion we brought Sandy Stewart in full time as a defensive coach and signed new full backs and a better goalkeeper. Nothing really needed changing up front.

You lads seem better prepared this summer and I quite fancy you to do alright.


If we keep the majority of the squad together and add a few players in key positions I think we will maybe surprise a few teams. We have relied on a few youth players last season though and I'd like to see us continue to do so. Bowie has his move to Fulham but tait looks a real prospect aswell. We're playing a better style of football under mcglynn with players who can dig in when they need to and if we can finally keep Vaughan fit, I don't see any reason we can't have a good season.

Mind folk wanted Mcglynn out after the league Cup? We should have got promoted under Smith in my opinion, but his miserable brand of football would have seen us back down in no time and all the worse for it. Was delighted when McGlynn came back and delighted we stuck with it.  Really enjoyed last season and really looking forward to this one. 

Good to be back, think we will do alright this season. Finally get Hendry and Vaughan playing consistently and we could even do quite well.

Latest count has Beith on 697 whilst we are on 669.

Looking more and more like we've been papped oot.

I just can't get my head round that amount for Beith but when you look at Tranent and Berwick Rangers then something big is going on.

Well done to all, winners and losers. A great effort.

Unfortunately it seems the website was encoded to provide a countdown based upon local time and not BST.

In total, over £150k has been raised for Scottish and Irish clubs. Tremendous effort from Ruairidh to get it all organised.

Absolutely spot on.

We seem to have fallen 12 short of a replay or extra time as the 8pm announcement is made.

Just changed the bookmark for it. Absolutely delighted we're away from that shitshow of a league. Hopefully we can move forward as a club. 

I'm actually excited about trips to Cappielow and Somerset. 

This is the most 'together' I can remember the club being since the glory days of the 90s. 

Good board steering us, supporters right behind this group of players and lots of good stuff happening in the background. 

'Mon the fucking Rovers!

Beith only needed 175 fans to each pay £20. That gets them 4 tickets and that's the 700. Don't see how you can't get your head around it at all.

Think our fans have maybe hit peak giving now, we've all shelled out a fair amount these last 3 months

How that tackle by Dennis on Dargo wasn't given as a penalty is beyond me.

This ^^^^^

I remember that game, wasn't supremely confident going through there but what a day it was.

For me Pittodrie and Dens were better cup away days though.

I was meant to be going to this game but I got a bit too drunk the night before and ended up in my bed for most of the weekend!

Noticed we brought on a player called Andy Galloway. I must have been at nearly every game that season and Can't remember him at all.

Good to have you lads back, looking forward to whenever it is we end up getting a game. A decent bunch of lads really.

You also kept falkirk down so alright in my book.

Snap, had a ticket too. I remember saying I can’t get too pished for the game. Coors beer tastes great, it bloody hates me though. John Millar was some player. We were excellent in that game. Shaun Dennis should’ve been sent off for that disgusting challenge on Dargo and we should’ve got the penalty. Did we sign Millar from Hearts? If so that must’ve been special for him
