Stirling Albion Thread

Recommended Posts

A Berwick fan criticising another team's pitch is like asking Gary Glitter his view on child protection procedures!

Once we sorted out the drainage problem we had, the Forthbank pitch returned to its former glory and was easily the best pitch in the division for the second half of the season.

The version I heard was that there is a specialised drainage system which prevents water from the nearby Forth getting in but the water can get out (pumped out?)

Anyway, no-one knew how to use the drainage system - possibly due to people changing jobs - so the Soutars Sportsturf company had people who knew how to work it and demonstrated the necessary know how.

The council actually asked if the club would be interested in an astro pitch last summer and the idea was veto'd by the club.....we'll stick to grass, but thanks for your concern.

And yet it was Stirling Albion that initiated this move not the council. Don't understand the lack of control you speak us. Clyde couldn't play their playoff final at home so the games were switched and, I hear, Queen's Park heard about the switch on the radio not through the official channels so late in the day was the switch. Cowdenbeath had a similar problem two seasons ago and gave up home advantage in the playoffs over Dunfermline. Stirling Albion have priority for any date at Forthbank over any booking and that includes fucking cat shows Meadowbank/Edinburgh City! (Wee reference to late 80s/early 90s there)

We had a spell where a few games were cancelled and the owners of the club (oh aye that us fans) had a serious discussion about going plastic. That discussion has died a death as the grass surface is back to its magnificent best and will presumably be even better next year when the turf is fully grown. We are not talking about disgraceful surfaces like Berwick's, Brechin's or Motherwell's of recent years, we are talking about improving something which was already great.

I still can't believe Alloa laid an artificial surface and didn't level the ground.

The clubs themselves don't actually lay the pitch, they get qualified people who know what they are doing to carry out the work ;) Anyway, they did do away with the slope, something that's clear when you see how high the home end terrace is compared to the pitch. I read previously that the very slight incline that there is now is there for drainage reasons. It's so slight that it's hard to see anyway.

More importantly, surely you people know not to listen to wasps1?

11 days on and already a better pitch than Shielfield.

Unless the weather goes mental then I would guess it'll be ready for mid July.

Looks like he's referring to the pitch, he's used to seeing the best pitch in Scotland not council owned pish.
