Very sad indeed. Announcement on their official Facebook now basically confirming the death of the club as we knew it. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of visits to Warout during my fathers playing days and although I turned down the opportunity to sign for them in the 90s always looked forward to returning there as a player. Feel real sorrow for the current committee who have put in a lot of hard work the past year or so trying to revive the club but unfortunately the behaviour of the previous chairman has tarnished its reputation and the damage is beyond repair. Club legend John Forsyth will be turning in his grave.

The statement I read was a goodbye and thank you to the Juniors. While looking forward to the EoS and running some youth sides.

You make it sound like they've folded.

He's had 25 different accounts on here all of which he uses to slag off Glenrothes and Burnieman. No shock to see him overreacting.

 

Here is the actual statement so you can all make your own minds up rather than listen to a facile vindictive troll.

 

Glenrothes Juniors Football Club have fulfilled their last fixture as a Junior Club before our move to the East of Scotland League for the forthcoming season. The current committee would like to thank the SJFA and the East of Scotland Region Juniors for their support since our formation in 1964 until the present day.


We would also like to express our thanks and gratitude to all the previous committee members who have served the club since its formation, former man...gers and players who contributed so much to the success of the club not only during the league and cup winning days but also during the non successful seasons who's commitment allowed the club to maintain a presence in Junior football.


Also a mention to the numerous volunteers who have assisted in providing our well renowned half- time and full-time hospitality. Your efforts and commitment have been greatly appreciated by visiting committees. We can't forget about the Pie Hut volunteers from the caravan to the current pie hut site, too many to mention but their efforts have been greatly appreciated and lastly the supporters who have supported the club through thick and thin.
As detailed previously the decision to move to the East of Scotland League was not taken lightly. After reviewing the clubs current situation and the benefits of joining the East of Scotland League the committee voted unanimously to apply and were subsequently successful and accepted into the East of Scotland League. We now look forward to competing in the East of Scotland League.


We would also like to confirm we will have an under 17 team who will complete in the AFYFC league next season and also welcome on board the "Young Glens" who will be competing in the forthcoming CEFSSA fixtures.


Behind the scenes there are lots of positive changes being proposed on and off the park, we will update on social media when these have been implicated.
Pete McQuade
Chairman Glenrothes Football Club

It's all about perspective. The sinking of the Titanic was a miracle to the lobsters in the ship's kitchen
I don't agree with your interpretation of this, but that metaphor is so good I had to give it a greenie.

Your perspective seems to be that of a melodramatic junior fan that probably never batted an eye at Montrose Roselea moving north for what they considered the betterment of their club. But Glenrothes moving from one East league to another is the death of the club.

Hearing that they are becoming kelty reserves, sad way to go but I suppose they have to get players from somewhere.

I’m unsure of facts but if anyone has seen kelty hearts u20s this year who have won their conference. I have to say its a good move for the club. These younger players will come from a good background with hunger and desire, also probably wanting less money than an experienced eos/junior player as well. I think with the way their season has went this could be a shining light and shows the clubs looking at long term future rather than just fielding a team. Seems sensible and good luck to them with that. Rather than spending money on ex players instead developing people who maybe aren’t quite ready for kelty first team but showed enough potential to play at a good level in the first place.

You’re the one with the problem my friend. Trolling me from the minute I mentioned Glenrothes in one of my posts. You’re a  TJ  obsessed Blackburn fan , remember.

Do us all a favour, go and get a hobby and don't re-register for the 156th time.  Everyone would appreciate it,

 I said “ the death of the club  as we knew it”  If people want to misconstrue that as me having some form of vandetta against the club that’s their problem not mine. 

Up until the end of the last decade Glenrothes were a very successful team with a thriving social club. They had no problem attracting players with transfers taking place regularly between them and all 4 of Fifes senior clubs and their record in the Junior Cup is better than that of Kelty.  That’s how I always knew it. Since it fell into the wrong hands about 8 years ago a whole host of managers and players  have been either undermined, mistreated or threatened by the previous chairman culminating in the position they find themselves in today.  Delapitation order from the council, rock bottom of a league even after the defection of 27 teams to the EOS and most recently being beaten 8-1 in a consolation league cup. 

I would look at Crossgates and the up turn they've gone through to be in this year's EoS Premier. There's nothing to stop Glenrothes bouncing back from a relative low point.

They're looking at their youth teams. So the idea of Glenrothes just becoming Kelty reserves doesn't seem true. Short term picking up some of the Kelty u20s seems like a good idea since Kelty are 2 tiers above and buying in experience instead of blooding youngsters.

I've watched Kelty U20s them four or five times when they've played in Edinburgh this season. When I first saw them, it was very much "wow". They played a high tempo passing game that other teams couldn't match and their early results backed that up. I assumed that the style of play came from Lee Wallace as their coach. As the season progressed they weren't as dominant and the scorelines were much closer. I don't know if that was down to the opposition improving or changes in the Kelty line up. They play Spartans in the Conference play-off game on Friday night, so I might go along. I would put Spartans as slight favourites based on what I've seen of both sides in the last couple of months.

I think its a bit of both. Kelty hit the ground running as they had been preparing for months prior to start of the season, clubs that were organised a bit later might have struggled early in the season. Fair to say there were changes in Kelty team as well with players like Macauley being regulars in the first team squad and players like Mutch and Woods out with long term injuries. I think Spartans league form has been similar to Keltys, looking at their results their scorelines seem to have been much closer second half of season as well.

It was 80 odd not that long ago and according to the keyboard warrior earlier today only 25 . Anyhow I thought you enjoyed sitting there in your white plastic chair , red dotting  away until you’re blue in the face every new poster from Fife that mentioned the ex chairman of Glenrothes. 

Will you get a grip?!

Starting to sound like the sh1t, immature patter that makes the ‘Junior’ forum on here unreadable...

Fair enough, have an opinion. But grow the f*ck up :thumbsdown

If stating facts about Glens to back up my opinion on a thread entitled Glenrothes Juniors is immature then I’m guilty as charged. 

Here’s the apology to the man threatened to be beaten up (a father of 3 young kids who played for the club for many years) posted on another forum from the chairman in question. People can make up their own mind rather than listen to a grown internet hard man.

Whit?!

I was more on about the page and a bit of bickering with Burnieman over f*ck all, but whatever. I’m just here for the football.

Yes, give your opinion on Glenrothes but let’s not get bogged down in petty schoolground sh1te

Confident if you check back the page you’ll realise it was Burnieman responsible for the bickering but thanks for the advice. From now on I’ll just ignore him and be more grown up by introducing f*ck and sh1te into every post.
Try ignoring Pie and Bovril because trust me, everyone is heartily sick of you. Nobody cares about your Glenrothes grudge.

Fair enough but I’m genuinely interested in what’s happening with Glenrothes tbh...

I didn’t realise the politics behind it all but I’m happy to hear all sides of the story rather than you pair squabbling over nothing. Plus I expect more from you... I’ve disagreed with folk on here before (especially the HL crew!) but I try and keep it on topic rather than things turning it into a personal issue against certain members. Wee Fifer has a valid point, he just spoiled it by acting like a bairn, don’t become one of them :angel
