2010 Maradona Goalkeeper Appeal

Exceptional performance from our 13s last night. Three hat tricks, one from full back - one from midfield and one from central defender/striker tells the story. Goals coming from all positions.....

Thursday night 24 Sept, and we have two games at Pilrig Park. Both 6.15pm Kick Offs, as our U13s (2008s) make their debut at youth level. Opponents for this pre-season friendly are Redhall Star Colts. Our 2010 Reds will host Hutchison Vale, in what should be a cracker of a game. Both squads are asked to report @ 5.30pm......

Two great results from this mornings games. Our 09s provided a convincing performance away at Spartans, with the squad providing an outstanding display. Particular mention to stand-in keeper Luke, who did very well. Our 2010 Whites Iniesta played host to Tynecastle BC @ Pilrig Park. The football on show by both sides was very good, with a number of great goals scored by both sides.

From Friday 18 September, Due to the dark nights closing in, 2009 & U13 (2008) Friday night sessions @ Pilrig Park will now be 6pm - 7pm, starting an hour earlier than usual.

Our Academy players officially break for school holidays. And as we ease out of what has been a crazy period of lockdown, our P7s (2008s) will have mixed emotions as they forego emotional goodbyes to classmates and teachers. They’re a squad of strong characters and I’m sure they’ll make a smooth transition to high school life.....We’ll have good news for all Academy teams over the weekend. Watch this space

Hope everyone is staying positive.....We’ve been relatively busy behind the scenes dealing with off-field issues. Our ongoing “negotiations“ with CEC Green Spaces dept re our vision for Pilrig Park and our long-term aims to get our youth teams back playing at Pilrig, took a positive turn, when CEC agreed to support our plans, to increase the dimensions of the current playing area. Once we get the go ahead to start playing, CEC will undertake the work, and our youth teams will come back to PP. Part 2 of our long-term vision is to site a new 60x40 7s playing area, on a section of the original big pitch. The CEC have agreed in principal to carry out the marking and maintenance of the new 7s site, although a cost for this work has still to be agreed. In addition, local group Friends of Pilrig Park will be required to endorse the Academies application, before CEC will proceed. We’ve had 2 fairly in-depth discussions with the Chair of the friends group, and a consultation process involving their members, and residents with a community interest, will be undertaken very soon. We’ve also proposed that the playing area would ideal for community use, especially during school hours by the three local schools. The new area would accommodate, not just 7v7 football, but any sports activity that requires boundary lines, such as Unihock - Rounders - Quick Cricket etc. Pilrig Park school have responded very positively to the proposal. We’ve put together a small video of archive actions shots illustrating the youth and senior games the club enjoyed over the years at Pilrig Park....We’ll keep everyone updated. Stay Safe
