Why was Derek Ure at centre half?
And why was John Collins at our game ?
The mind boggles.

Tapping was suspended, Malone is ill. 

John Collins is a Galashiels bloke. 

Mind can be deboggled now. 😊

Just thought it was strange when we had Griffiths on the bench, he did okay mind you, caught out of position a few times though. I was dreaming that Collins was maybe interested in a Director of Football role haha.

Watched the Shire v Gala game on Saturday in some poor weather conditions. Not much between the teams until last 20 mins when Shire took control and ran out comfortable winners. Nicky Low and Peggie both standouts for me and was a cracking free kick from Low.

Wouldn't be surprised if he's sneaking his way back in.

18 months without an official chairman and 2 of our board members rarely in the country, my mind has reboggled!

Bill is pastoral director for the league and still chaplain at the club. He had a few personal things he's been dealing with, so had to take a step back this season as he explained in our chat with him. 

As far as I know Robert Jack and Andy Williamson are running things behind the scenes at present. There might be a few more names that I've missed, apologies if so.

Bill's had a busy family life over the last few months including becoming a grandfather. He's also been very busy with work.

However he's a top bloke and I was delighted to see him at the footy on Mon night.

Oh my goodness.. Forget the very interesting ref decisions today the main point was the CB 2nd goal. Not sure about the thought process by Winters when he got the drop ball decision after Barclay was injured. Very poor form and although Low should have not mouthed off it was very understandable. That 6 mins at the start of the 2nd half killed the game. Nonsense stuff

As a neutral who took in the second half:

Winters had the ball at his feet and an open goal when the Shire keeper went down injured and ref stopped the game. But that wasn't where the second goal came from?

Second goal Shire had the ball in comfortable possession well away from their goal and their right back tried to pass back to the keeper from wide, 40 yards away, and passed straight to the Braves striker who scored 1v1. Shire mistake, nothing to do with the ref or anyone else.

Red card I though was a red card as soon as you're man did what he did. You can't shout at the ref like that from a few yards away regardless of how bad he was. Asking for trouble. So again, self inflicted from a neutral point of view.

Missed the first half, but second Braves were the better side and deserved the win for me. Granted Shire were a man short, but they looked a bit like a collection of individuals doing their own thing rather than a collective. Braves looked the better unit, overall.

Brown and Dishington the two for Shire who looked most likely and was a little surprised to see the former replaced with 20 or so to go.

Sinclair ran the game most of the second half though in the braves midfield. Still a tidy player.
