SENIOR SUMMER CUP FINAL
Elgin Boys Club are proud to present the final of the Senior Summer Cup between Waverley and Royals.
Kick-off 7.00pm at Elgin City's FC's ground - Boroughbriggs on Saturday 20th August.
Doors open 6.30pm. Raffles, teas, coffees and a great game of football. Come along and support the lads and the club.
LEAGUE CUP RESULTS
First of all congratulations to Waverley who won the Senior League Cup and to Saracens who won the Intermediate League Cup. If anyone has photos of the Senior presentation (Friday evening) please pass a copy to me for the website. The Intermediate presentation will be on Monday evening after the last game in the league. Unfortunately I can't mention that Waveley Juniors won the League as there is no cup for the 'non-competitive' set up under SYFA rules.
Upcoming events - This week end (Sunday 12th June) - an outing for Seniors and Intermediate select teams to Inverness. Next Sunday (19th June) - Huntly Tournament for a Junior select. Thanks to all managers involved in this. Again I'd appreciate some feedback (photos and a brief summary of how it went).
Mike C goes in for a knee operation this weekend and I'm sure we'd all wish him well and a speedy recovery. His duties will be covered by Neil C (referees), Bob Stewart (recording scores) and Phil Stuart (lower storage container - goal storage).
Juniors - Mid Summer Mix-Up - the fixtures on the website are wrong. These were put in as provisional at the start of the season. Correct dates are now on the website. Note that there are 4 games on the last Friday (24th) First set starting at 6.00pm; Second at 7.15pm. Chaos - well named a mix-up!
Lastly It's been pointed out that cars have been parking across the cycleway at the entrance to Morriston. I noticed a black Merc and a red Audi myself yesterday evening. Perhaps managers could mention it to their lads and spread the word. I'd hate to see an expensive car damaged by an irate cyclist.
Enjoy the rest of the season.
INTERMEDIATE LEAGUE CUP FINAL
This must go down as one of the more memorable finals. Despite being keenly fought by both sides Crusaders went in at half time 4-0 up and looked to be cruising. Corinthians came out for the second half a much sharper team and proceeded to dominate the early stages.
Suddenly it was 4 all and we had a game on our hands. Crusaders broke the deadlock with two killer goals in the final period just when we thought extra time was on the cards.
Bob Stewart summed when presenting the cup to Crusaders captain Bran Edgar - "a great game played by two excellent teams".
Thanks to all concerned including Clyde the referee. Final score Crusaders 6 Corinthians 4
SENIOR LEAGUE CUP FINAL
Congratulation go to Royals (coached by Mark Angus) who beat Saracens 6-3 in the final on Friday 13th (unlucky for some).
