Welcome to the Elgin Boys Club website


Well here we are pre-Christmas with not a ball kicked in the Boys Club this season. The first time in 50 plus years. In terms of overall importance it rates low in the scale of 'important things' yet for morale -we've lost out.

Looking forward to next year we're all wondering whether it will be be possible to have some footie at Morriston.

The EBC Committee will meet in January to consider our options for the 2021 season. Be assured that our way forward will be determined by the safety of both the players and the coaches and of course the dads, mums, etc who provide transport and the friends and relations who provide support.

In the meantime have a great but safe Festive Season - actual or virtual. And (vaccine willing) we'll see you on the fields of Morriston in April.

The EBC Committee.


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.

Refunds for subscriptions should now be showing up in your accounts. Sorry for the delay. This was due to a difficulty with the agency that deals with our online payments. If you have not received your refund by Monday 13th please contact me by email (neil@anfotheringham.plus.com).

Many thanks to those who chose to donate their subscriptions to the Club. We'll need do something special for the boys next year.

Keep safe and well.



Emails have gone out to those of you who paid the £25 subscription on line. A number of you have declined a refund which is in effect a donation to the club. For this the Club is most grateful. We are also heartened by the kind comments left on Facebook. There is a fair amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to set up the season and it’s nice when this is acknowledged.

For those who paid in cash we’ll be in touch by email to find out the best way to get a refund to you.

The schools close on Friday so best of luck to both parents and youngsters for this enforced ‘holiday’.

Keep well.
