East Kilbride v Cowdenbeath. 2nd Division play-off

Recommended Posts


So ur usual away support is around about the number of tickets yous have been offered? So where is the drama coming from?


It's a playoff.

How many "EK fans" attended the cup match with Celtic compared to their usual attendance?

Aside from the fact it is a cup final and our biggest game of the season, we have also taken more than 125 away fans at times this season as well. We would take at least double that allocation.

Maybe you should have played your Scottish Cup tie with Celtic at your home ground if you feel so strongly about it? Or do you only move it to suitable grounds when it suits?

Hope Cowdenbeath stay up as while Central Park is not the greatest at least it holds a lot more than 660 that the EK park handles.

I would have rathered we played celtic at k park. The ground size is what it is. Not ideal i know. Would be great to fit in every fan in that wants to go but it is what it is.

The joke is a team is playing to get into the leagues and it can only cope with 125 away fans.

the percentage allocation is fair enough.

also then makes you wonder what are the other facilities like if this is the team top of the league with all the money to spend?

If it holds 660, do you get 535 home fans every week?

im guessing no so no need for you to get that many tickets this Saturday by your logic.

Maybe if your team had performed a bit better through the season you wouldnt have to face my "joke" team with shite facilities.

K park is near full every week.

A quick scan through your highlights indicates this is definitely not the case. What is the standard admission price for an EK game in the LL by the way?

Anyway, the facilities are what they are. Central is a dive but locking people out of football games at this level is madness!

Not talking about football. We were bottom on merit. If you beat us fair and square then good on you. 

Just an eye opener to flaws with the pyramid system. 

We pay thousands rent for our dump of a ground, maybe we should just use a local amateur park and I can build a fence round it then we will have more cash for players.

Surely there should be a minimum ground capacity for league 2. It's a nonsense to have all ticket games at this level.
This is one of the problems letting boys clubs in without the stadium infrastructure.

No doubt they will also want to move cup matches to other stadiums and pocket the money for squad building.

I say "keep them down"

I'm with you on cup ties, first out of the hat should have to play the game at their registered ground.

For the rest, let's hope that Cowden sort them out and leave EK in the LL where their ground capacity will not matter. Would work for me.

We are getting 125 tickets.
joke


More than enough for Cowden imo.

When EK come up I can see K Park causing problems for the games vs us and Clyde.

Fortunately we are also a class above the Highland and Lowland sides so I don't think we have anything to fear.

Big statement to make

The pyramid systems has its flaws no doubt. But we dont make rules up. All we can do is play games and hope to progress. And at the end of the day it all boils down to 2 games against each other. May the best team win. If next saturday comes and you have beat us over two legs i will be the first on here to congratulate you. If we win you better log off for a few days cause i will be unberable

Re: People moaning about EK stadium size

They are planning to build a 4000 capacity ground soon, and I'm sure they could set up a Hamilton gazebo at the other side of the pitch should they be promoted.

IIRC The Minimum size for League 2 is the same as for an entry license - cover for 100, plus floodlights

although @HibeeJibee will probably clarify.

One year since the council passed the application. How many bricks have been layed so far? Perhaps they are waiting until they make the premiership.

In saying that, I'm looking forward to seeing a white elephant being built in the middle of nowhere in my home town for the couple of hundred "fans"
