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.
If you guys are open to games, I could maybe get a team from St James in Dundee to give you a game. Let me know if this would be something that would work for you. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yeah, the lads would be up for this, Gordon.
Someone will be in touch soon.
Is anyone else having trouble viewing this? Keeps saying bad gateway….

Was great fun at the match yesterday and also in the Portu

even though some the jokes were older than him!
Would be great if we could get some more of the local sides

Are you with Talk Talk?
The problem seems to be with people on Talk Talk. I’m sure it’ll sort itself out.
Nothing we can do at this end to fix it I’m afraid.
Aye great day and night folks, especially Mr Wallace pinching my stovies for his team winning “trophy” lol
Great group of lads we have.
