What’s happening?

New football kits coming soon.

Hopefully have a couple of friendlies coming our way.

Based on people who have said they will go, we now have enough players to take a team to the walking football tournament in Portugal next October. I will post more details as soon as I get them.

Sye Webster is organising another quiz night shortly after the new year. This time it’s for club funds.

John Gowans was knocked off his bike in an early morning hit and run incident. He’s not sure who it was, but he said the guy driving looked like Brian Wallace. We all hope John is fit for next week, he’s owe the club a quid for his square on the scratch card.

Sad news, Bob Miller has had to hang his indoor and outdoor gym shoes up due to injury. This will be a great loss to the club. As well as losing a good player, we are losing a regular who was always on hand to help out when needed. We wish him all the best and hope that he will keep involved in another capacity.

A scratch card will be getting sold this Wednesday. Bring yer change.

Last minute equaliser

The walking football carnival arrived at Gayfield yesterday to promote the game to the masses. Although it was a bit chilly, the sun shone and the wind remained calm.
We were up against Carnoustie again, the previous game at Gayfield had ended in scoreless draw (probably due to the postage stamp sized goals).
For this match, we were provided with seven-a-side goals, this made sure that both keepers had some work to do this time. The short game ended in a 1-1 draw, super Davie Whitton grabbing a last minute equaliser against a very good Carnoustie team. To cap a great day, Arbroath beat the visitors 3-0.
Thanks to Brian Cargill and Arbroath FC for setting it all up.Thanks also to the Carnoustie lads for a great game.

Many thanks to the Portcullis for their hospitality and great stovies last night.
Last but not least, thanks to Sye Webster, not only for leaving his double denim outfit at home, but for organising a great night out for the lads.

Night oot.

Our presentation night out has been arranged for Saturday 18th November (the same day we play at Gayfield).
It will be a sport/general knowledge/music quiz night and will be held in the portcullis at 7.30 for an 8pm start.
If you would like to enter a team with your mates’, that’s absolutely fine, the more the merrier. If you have no mates’, don’t worry, teams will be sorted out on the night. The cost will be £2 a head (money raised going toward the club funds). Prizes have yet to be announced. Rumours that Sye Webster will be buying the winning team a drink each have yet to be confirmed. Although, given that Sye is tighter than Dick Campbell’s waistcoat, it’s highly unlikely.
