SOME WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT!

SOME WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT!

SOME WORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT!

It seems like no time since the season ended – yet already that’s the players back in for pre-season training.  We have a young squad and Gary has been busy over the summer trying to bring in players that can continue to take the club forward.  The team have a lot to live up to this season as the bar was set higher than I could have dreamed of just a few short years ago when we were first awarded our SFA Licence.
In the season just past, we reached the 3rd round of the Scottish Cup for the first time, defeated an SPFL club in a competitive match for the first time, were 7th (or 5th?) in the League and transferred a player into a full-time contract with an SPL club.  The team also delivered one of the best weeks the club has had when they managed to overcome three clubs that finished the season in the top four – and in some style.
The committee at the Strollers put a huge amount of time and effort into the running of the club (thank you!) and that work seems an awful lot easier when the team is performing as well as it did last season.  Our thanks to the coaches and players for their hard work and making the season as enjoyable as it was.
Elsewhere across the club 2 finals were reached.  The 2009 Youth team lost on penalties to Lauderdale while the under 20’s team lost to Dunipace with the last kick of the ball.  Fantastic efforts and my congratulations to all involved for such sterling effort.  My congratulations also go to the 2 victorious sides as I know what they had to do to beat our teams who fought tooth and nail to the end.
We now know that we will have Cowdenbeath and Tranent, as well as 3 guest clubs in the Lowland League next season, so a warm welcome to them all.  We didn’t vote for guest clubs as we feel the pyramid should be respected, but football beats politics and we look forward to welcoming Celtic, Hearts and Rangers as warmly as anyone else to Christie Gillies Park this coming season.  I just hope the ‘jam tomorrow’ on offer of fairer promotion/relegation across the pyramid now comes to fruition.
I look forward to meeting up with many of you over the coming months of the new season.  We are trying our best to keep improving on and off the park and key to that happening is attracting more people to games and making that experience an enjoyable one for you.
Best wishes
Russell
A Few Words From The Gaffer

A Few Words From The Gaffer

A Few Words From The Gaffer Gary Jardine

With the season finished I’d firstly like to take the opportunity to thank the committee, supporters and sponsors for their support throughout the season. Both on and off the park the club have continued to improve and this couldn’t be done with out your support.

Secondly, a massive thanks to my staff and our players. It’s been a long season however we can look back on some real highlights and without hesitation, I can say we have continued to move the club in the right direction. As is normal at this time of the season we say farewell and wish those moving on the very best. Over the next few days we will update on those who have renewed their contracts and when the time is right, will do likewise with those incoming. While he probably won’t thank me for saying so I’d like to give a special mention for Kyle Fee. Since i joined the strollers Kyles attitude and commitment has been second to none and if it turns out he has played his last game (given his injury) then I can only say I’m proud to have been his manager. You can take the boy out of Granton………..

Finally, a thank you to our loan players and their clubs, Hibernian and St Johnstone for supporting us once again. It was great to see Jack Brydon being promoted with Edinburgh City and hopefully he can hit the ground running when back in for preseason. As a club we are extremely proud of Joao. While he’d be first to thank his team mates, he’s earned and deserved his full time contract and we wish him all the very best. Last but not least, we also wish Taylor all the best on his return to St Johnstone. For someone so young it’s a credit to himself how he immediately fitted in and hit the ground running. I’m sure he, like the others, have a big future.

Have a great break and hope to see everyone back at the CGP soon.

Gary

Next Round Of The EOS Qualifying Cup

Next Round Of The EOS Qualifying Cup the strollers go after a 0-0 performance at 90 minutes both team had to endure a further 30 minutes and then penalties. The game saw many yellow cards and one red card reducing the visitors to 10 men for most of the second half. The strollers had many chances to put the game to bed but were not taken and the visitors came close to scoring on the break but some great defending and goalkeeping made the game go into extra time and then penalties.

It was great to see young Craig Brydon make his first team debut from the under 20’s.

Civil won on penalties and the goal scorers were:

  1. Mark McConnell
  2. Euan Valentine
  3. Alieu Faye

All the best to Armadale Thistle!
