Pity Larkhall Thistle  have basically won sod all in the juniors in the last sixty years. Royal Albert apart from one diddy league win last season have done sod all since they turned junior either.

Guys 

Can I just say than one individuals opinion on the merits of a player based on his I'll founded knowledge (in my opinion) of the club we signed him has driven this "debate" 

We 100% respect all Junior Clubs equally 

Can we use this thread to discuss events at St Roch"s please?

Looking forward to the new season ahead

Will it be tough ? Absolutely but it will also be enjoyable and exciting not to mention interesting as the step up allows many of us to visit grounds and places we have never ventured to before and all of that is what being a fan is all about so players come and players go but ultimately we are fans of the football club so on that note ..see you all on Saturday as we have a cracking pre season match up in Dundee against our friends from the north Lochee Harp

Great to see any junior side upgrading their facilities.

The boy took his goals well yesterday
In truth St Rochs far too good on the day and was a bit of a mismatch but for the fans it was a fantastic day out and lochee were absolutely superb hosts
Free entry and fans invited to share the Buffett with committee and players at full time which was appreciated by the candy faithful especially after a good few beers in the dundee sun .
Lochee harp went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic time and we thank them for there generosity,hospitality and friendship on the day .
Great club great people

You’re worse than the SFA, leaving the Larkhall end open to the elements.

Larkhall Thistles long and illustrious history far exceeds anything  achieved by a nouveau team like Kelty. It seems you know very little about the Junior game. Lots of clubs have ups and downs but have history, class , reputation and staying power. In our case, we;

are the oldest team in Scotland                                 

have put more players senior than any other club in Scotland

have produced more Scottish internationals than any other club in Scotland

have produced international players for the USA, England, Ireland and Australia also

have 50+ trophy wins including 2 Scottish Cups, plus 70 odd runner-up places

are the only team to have hosted a Junior Cup final.

Remind me, who are /were Kelty Hearts again?

Very disrectspectful to the Albert too, who have a history Kelty could only dream of, and who have spawned imitations in other leagues.

Well yesterday the season officially started with a league cup tie against local rivals petershill .

Last season I disagreed with the gaffer after the peasy stuffed us 5-2 at James mcgrory park but the reality was we were both right . The manager said the match was not important and for him and his preparation for the season it was not as he has to give players game time try out systems, bed new players in and generally get the players ready for the league season but as fans we want to win every game and every defeat hurts no more so than against your rivals who having been lording it over the candy for decades.

So as yesterday arrived and with 5 1st team players missing I tried to bare all this in mind and accept that it might not be our day again at Petershill but I need not have worried as the team put on a fantastic performance and we beat the peasy for the 1st time in 27 years at there ground 3-1.

The game started well with both teams trying to get an early foothold and in fairness peasy creating the better chances but it was candy who took the lead from a Jordan logan goal his 88th competitive goal for st rochs and the candy went into the break 1-0 up .

The second half the Roch started far the better side and should have scored to go 2 up but they never let themselves get disheartened by that miss but instead broke again after some good football and won a penalty which was dispatched excellently by rab maguire.

That goal seemed to awake peasy from there slumber and they upped there game as they stared down the abyss. With about 20 mins to go they pulled one back after some lovely one touch football leaving there player a simple tap in. Cue the alamo but it never came as despite huffing and puffing the candy as a unit kept them at bay and looked in control indeed the candy were denied what can only be described as a stonewall penalty when the excellent mcgrachen was booted into the Springburn sky with the ref watching yet not giving the decision we all expected.

Candy went down to 10 men with a few minutes to go after mcmanus was sent off for a second yellow after what was a tired foul rather than a dirty foul.

As peasy pressed a candy clearance was chased in hope by mcgrachen and his preservence paid off as his presence created mayhem between peasy keeper and centre half and there poor clearance found dobbs of the candy just over the half way line and the lad expertly chipped the keeper from distance a la David Beckham to sent the big away support wild and see the 27 years hoodoo put to bed in style .

So as the ref blew for time up there was a feeling of joy pride and relief at winning the battle of the north derby only our 2nd win since 1981 .

Next stop another local derby this time Ashfield again the manager will be looking at players game time fitness, shapes and systems for the season ahead where as me a fan I just want to win .

Just reading your league fixture on Saturday got me thinking when the last time St. Roch's would've played Arthurlie in a league game. With Arthurlie having been in the top couple of Central divisions since the mid 80s it must be close on 40 years since the two clubs met for league points. Even without league reconstruction this season both clubs would still have been in the same division in the old super first.
