Always wondered where the name ‘Warout’ came from. Obviously there are a few streets around the stadium with that name. Is it the usual story of rewarding a councillor or is there something else?

Cheers Gogsy although it seems a bit of a stretch... I take it it’s pronounced Wearout, or Wearoot. like most folk south of the river I just assumed it was pronounced War - out :lol:

All the precincts of Glenrothes are named after the original farms thar worked the land they are built on. 

That's how we have areas known as Macedonia and a Newcastle as well as Warout.

Sure is right.  All original farms and steadings that were built on during the years have been remembered by having estates named after them.    See this old map http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/20289.  Anybody that knows the stadium will know that the trees shown on the map under the name Warout are still there.   Have lived in the town for over 50 years.  It is definitely War- out

I was just looking through the old maps myself...

Good to see the new signings taking shape.

At least 23 games before a return fixture (Arniston on 18th Jan?), lovely job! 👌

That is what was pledged when the First Division format was announced.

First Division opens with clubs playing everyone else once within their own conference (and also on the international weekend in mid-November). From end of October until the Christmas break, and through February, it's inter-conferences games. Mixture of both at New Year and January with the derbies, plus on groundhop weekend. Then return games in the conference from March onward. It'll undoubtedly get mixed-up a bit due to cup-ties, postponements and groundshares but the basic principle is a worthy one.

(Incidentally their first return game is actually the derby with Inverkeithing at New Year having previously meeting on opening day... it's cut-off the bottom of that image).

For those Junior contributors that made the case that Glenrothes were about to fold:

Interesting that the Pumphie tweets stopped as the goals went in.  The eventual score was:

Pumpherston Juniors 2-5 Glenrothes

At one stage it was 0-4 with Pumphie pulling two back in the second half.


The same thing happened with the Tynecastle match.  That final score was:

Pumpherston Juniors 1-4 Tynecastle


In their other game Pumpherston lost 2-1 away to Broxburn Ath.

I'm sure once @superbigal realises his mistake he'll be on offering the club an apology. Wouldn't hold my breath though as he'd have to get that confirmed by the man pulling his strings.
