Mark , for the record here is why i resigned from the football club - i was lambasted for the following decisions by the chairman 

 

1- the lottery which i worked really hard over the years to bring in 25k a year to the club  needed new members so i went to the Galston YC chairman a good friend of mine and said you guys go to the mums and dads of galston and coaches and bring in a 100 new members i will give you half of it and half to us - that was lambasted by the chairman but i would have thought having an affiliation with the club that was quite a fair deal for everyone ?  so why have the affiliation if you cant help each other ? i think we all know the answer to that 

 

2 - i came up with the idea of a juniors wall to commemorate the guys who have played a part in the clubs history over the years and now we have became a senior club it was the ideal time for this , at the same time the local rangers supporters club approached me and asked if they could have a bust for sammy cox , an ex darvel , rangers and scotland player and i thought yea thats a good idea , again i told them any bricks we sell would be ours but any they brought in would be 50-50 , bearing in mind an e mail was going out to every rangers supporters club in the world , 12,000 of them it could have been a huge money spinner - again this didnt go down well  

 

3- i did a deal to sell eddie ferns to cumbernauld which involved us getting 100 match programmes from cumbernauld chairman for every home game and a really good programme at that for  this forthcoming season , no hard to work out at £2 a pop plus sell advertising spaces which myself and some of the guys on the commitee had already sold that it would have brought in approx 7k , they sold him for £1500 ?

 

this gave me no option to resign from my role at the club but i and the other boys who have left are steeped in the history of the club and will still continue to follow darvel home and away and we all wish the club every success in the future , and luckily for you guys we are now allowed on here to talk pish so will make saturdays more interesting for you all  if and when the season ever starts ,  and as for your point re talbot getting mentioned in their post which has disappeared for some reason there are plenty of massive clubs who will pose a threat to darvel and im sure mick and the players will know that 

Cumbernauld has a fantastic programme , what an inventive way to sell on a player... interesting. That statement from the club was an utter shambles whoever drafted that needs shot. Not thanking you for your outstanding efforts over the years is appalling and petty. Even your hardened critics on here realise what Darvel means to you and how much you have given to the club over the years to be cast aside like this is really poor form from a club attempting to instill community spirit. Keep the heed up.

Now that's what i'd call a party.

Celtic winning 10 in a row and Darvel losing out to Talbot in the league race.

Sign me up for one of Darvel Legends half and half scarfs.

You must be one of they frothing at the mouth Celtic fans who’s eyes pop out every time rangers are mentioned.

Be interesting to hear your views on the rochs stance on there “party” with the big team 🙄

Should have held the hands high after the Dubai-Gate training fiasco as that’s still a bad taste in the mouth. There will be two sides to the story, Probably best for the new leadership. I feel for the blokes leaving as much as I can’t stand them. Easy to get carried away but you don’t have to go far back on here to see people warning of the impending power grab. Jealous we all were apparently. We never were, some of us have seen this played out many times before

Put in a load of your time getting sponsorship and starting the lottery which IMO is one of the best ways of raising money .Always  talking up the club,increasing there profile and getting people like me to take an interest,sign up for the lottery and most important attend games when I could .Though the brick is a bit cringe worthy and I am certain wouldn't have went down well with the chairmen .You were certinly an asset to the club and IMHO will be sorely missed .I look forward to you and your brother posting on here again .Fair makes my Saturday night especially when you wind up the  dileverence mob

Shout out for the Cumbernauld folks.

We'd like to do a deal regarding a player..........

No problem, what you offering says DL.

100 programmes per home game for a season plus twa blaws at a ragman's trumpet.

Done deal, thanks.

No mention of a pandemic or a season we have no idea when it will start or crowds allowed in or a bad winter with games being played next year.

Darvels new money men, £1500 now, cash in hand?

Bye bye DL, don't slam the door on the way out.

What has any of this got to do with St Roch's - mentioned twice on this conversation 

Sorry for posting on Darvels page but what 'party' with the "big team"?

Good luck to Darvel and all other clubs but keep us out your petty bickering 

 

Thank you

For attention of the chairmen or the social media football manager, Here's some free advice. Go look at Aberdeen's player statement, Read it. Apologising unreservedly to anyone who may have been impacted by their actions. It's not too late to say sorry and accept responsibility for what was an absolute farce and putting out that statement treating the rest of us with utter contempt.  All the "Oh here's us spending money, sustainability, have you seen our dressing room? that our club logo on the floor! Auchinleck Talbot, Why can't a club aim high? CLUB STATEMENT, have you seen this signing? Auchinleck Talbot, did you see the dressing rooms?" is not making anyone forgot.  

Want to start moving on? Start where it matters, saying sorry.

You benefit on a Saturday when Celtic aren’t playing, prob have fundraisers involving Celtic fans for the benefit of the club but as soon as another team does the same rangers related there’s guys like the said poster beeling about it as if it’s the most frowned upon this level of football has ever seen 🙄

Pretty clear there has been no internal action. Still acting like they did nothing wrong.

You do realise that every junior team in Greater Glasgow probably benefits to some extent when Celtic and/or Rangers aren't playing?

You’re probably right paul but I’m not convinced we really need to get into all that on a Darvel forum.

Unless ......... are you part of their new PR / communication strategy ?
A years supply of pies and tattie scones to come on here as a distraction ??

West juniors are still dead, you've been shown to not even like the "GRADE" so why continue to post on here when all you do is make people worry that you are seriously ill?

Seek the help, its not a sign of weakness to admit you are struggling.
