Welcome to the Elgin Boys Club website



CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:
2020 SEASON CANCELLED


It is with regret that we have to anounce that the 2020 season is cancelled due to the present emergency.

The Club was established in 1964 and this is the first time we haven't managed to provide youth football over the summer period. We shall return next year. Many thanks for the support of all the returning and new players.

Refunds will be paid in full - be patient. Those who paid by cash will be paid by separate arrangements.

Keep safe and we'll be back next year.

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.

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

2020 SEASON REFUNDS

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.
