Hynes re-signing? Fingers crossed for that, a big miss last year.

Cheers mate , although I heard Liam Campbell had chucked it?

Not heard anything about that but he will be more involved in coaching Celtic Ladies so may not make training nights.

Seen Ryan McLaren growing up from 13s and was always a very good all round keeper. 

 

Dan Crawley is one of my favourite players I’ve coached. Such a great attitude, will to win and dedicated. Really took our team on to the next level when we won the Scottish.

A good away win for Yoker to start the new League campaign. I was only able to follow on twitter but to come from an early goal down to win 1-2 shows a bit of the character we're going to need in the coming months. Good to see Davie Crerand getting the goals too.

With all respect to Lugar, I don't know what kind of force they are going to be this season,  I hope we can build confidence from an away win for the bigger challenges we will face  as we go forward. As I was writing that  last sentence I was reminded of our first League game of last season when we beat Wishaw 4-3 away and look how that season panned out. So onwards and upwards with feet planted firmly on the ground, if that's possible.

Ps.for us Twitter followers any chance of the team lineup for future games?

Yep, not being a driver, I just followed on Twitter yesterday, Lugar just a bit difficult to get to on public transport,  and was delighted to see the boys coming back to win. 

Given the 4 4 draw at the end of last season, you'd expect them to be at a similar level and to have the same aspirations as ourselves so an away win is a terrific result. 

As you say, last year the initial away turned out a false result but after finishing second in the cup group, an improvement on last year, I'm hopeful.

If we can win against Clyde on Wednesday again, things will be looking good, read in the Post that they're favourite for the league.

The Whe Ho were totally dominant from start to finish, great all-round team performance.  We now have a Facebook page & after every game there a fairly in-depth report on that days game.  I'm not a betting man but the last odds I saw had us at 3-1 for the league with Vale of Clyde out at 9-2.

This Saturday's scheduled match away to Newmains JFC has been postponed due to asbestos being found in the clubhouse at Victoria Park

Many thanks to Bert at Lugar Boswell for finding the two training balls we lost when we were down there recently, we never realised they were lost until later on that week.

Disappointing 1-1 draw at Vale of Leven Last night.  Yoker were on top for most of the game especially the second half against 10 men (Vale No.10 sent off 35mins after he had scored a peach with Vales only shot of the first half on 25mins).  The Whe Ho should have been out sight in the second half but squandered chance after chance, even missed a penalty again!!!!!  Cree made amends by scoring the equaliser with 15 to go but we couldn't get a winner.
