I'm sure even our knockers and begrudgers on here would admit that is a remarkable return from the young man.

4.Bobby Duff 90 ( 3 seasons )
Billy Barton 90 ( 2 seasons )
JORDAN LOGAN 90 ( 5 seasons )

3. Robert Slavin 99 ( 5 seasons )

2. Johny mccardell 103 ( 5 seasons )

1. Willie Blair 111 ( 8 seasons )

Did they not lose by an 8-goal margin to Cumbernauld United last week ?

Record league defeat at St Rochs, of all places- a team , I think, who have beaten us 3 times in 60 years including yesterday, whilst we must have at least 20 victories over them in

that time.

I love that line st rochs,of all places that's how I know they are hurting after yesterday and rightly so despite some strange people on here saying not to gloat or Larkhall are rotten if you can't enjoy beating one of your rivals or being gutted losing to them then the baw is burst .

I think a few folk on here follow a team cos there son or some other family relation plays there but they come and go to other clubs but for us guys who follow our teams every week of every year home and away then victories and rivalries are there to be celebrated

Outside of a bounce game it would a long long time since the Candy scored 9 goals in a competitive match. Veteran Peter Flynn was quoting the 1950s!!! at yesterday's game. So fair play to the lads. Interested to know if it's true or not that St Roch's in almost a 100 years have never won in Larkhall.

Fantastic result and performance yesterday at JMP .
Some of the football and the goals were a joy to behold as we inflicted Larkhall's highest ever league defeat on them .
What was especially pleasing was the team did not let up and like a lion hunting it's pray they just kept going knowing that a memorable result was on the cards .
Next week sees a far tougher test against Dalry but a game we now go into with our tails up and high on confidence.
9-2 they will be talking about that result in the Garngad for many a year to come .
 
 
 
You got Larkhall at the right time,well done lads,we are in transition and it looks like it will be like that for a while,but we roll up our sleeves and get on with it

Big test coming up at home next week with the visit of Dalry Thistle. Hopefully another good crowd and we take something out the game to move us clear from the relegation orbit. Obviously going to be hard at this level to gain anything away from home so a point or three at home matters.

Why are Larkhall Thistle rivals for St Roch's ?

Don't think originally they were before the Scottish Junior Cup incident in 1970 when without any of the Old Firm playing the same Saturday, (think the Celtic game at Dundee was called off at lunchtime with all sorts of supporters buses deciding, let's go and watch this)  8000 turned up and the Chief Constable of the then Lanarkshire Police described it as his most deplorable day policing football in 40 years. 

Btw, in today's money an 8000 crowd would generate something like £36,000 based on paying punters split 50/50 between adults and concessions.

For all the wrong reasons but that's the west of Scotland for you .
It's nothing new and speaking to an old head yesterday he said the games now are nothing to the games in the 50s and 60s when punch ups between both sets of fans were commonplace.

I find it sad that Larkhall don't bring any real support to JMP for whatever reason but tbh not many clubs do and yet despite most of the shite written on here it's a very friendly place and folk would enjoy a day out at the football ground .
Yesterday our hospitality guy soon as he arrived asked where the Larkhall committee was like he does every home game to ensure away club officials are looked after but sadly I have not seen this replicated at other grounds but that's maybe cos we are not a committee type of club and our committee will be found on the terraces and not with the suit and tie brigade.
