Welcome to the Elgin Boys Club website

About us

The Elgin and District Boys Football Association as the club was originally known, was set up in 1964 to "promote the moral and physical welfare of boys aged between 10 and 17 through the provision, under proper adult supervision, of games of football".

The years have gone by and the language altered a bit but founder and driving force John Cameron's ideal has remained the same - football for young lads.

The club players are split into three sections by age - Junior, Intermediate and Senior - and take the names of the original teams:

  • St Giles
  • Cameronians
  • Crusaders
  • St Columbus
  • Royals
  • Waverley
  • Corinthians
  • Saracens

Juniors play an eight-a-side game (11 player squad) on a smaller pitch with matching goal size.

Intermediates play eleven-a-side (15 player squad) on a slightly larger pitch.

Seniors play the full size game again with a 15 man squad.

Matches are played on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during the school summer term (see fixtures list) at Morriston Playing Fields with all matches starting at 7.00pm. All games are supervised by team managers who have undergone a Disclosure Scotland check and the games (apart from the Juniors) are allocated referees.

Full details of the rules and regulations can be found here. Membership, enrolment etc is in the News tab.

After two years in the wilderness due to to Covid the Boys Club are back and with a bit of luck and hard work we should be able to put on a season of football at Morriston starting in April when the schools go back. The exact format may be different from previous years depending on the number of players who register, the availability of coaches and of the restrictions imposed by government due to Covid.

We will carry out a risk assessment leading to a set of rules which will apply to all involved (players, parents/ guardians, coaches, referees etc.) in playing. These will be published on our website in good time before play starts.

Our target date for the start of on-line registration is 14th February. Arrangements will be made for those without internet access. The fee is being held at £25 per player but will not be taken until the season starts (in case of eventualities).

If you intend registering to play please discuss this with your family. As with all Covid related matters this will affect them as well as yourself. You still need your parent or guardian's permission anyway.

Keep a look out for further information on this website and Facebook.

Fingers crossed that all goes well.
