Lowland League Team / Re: The Scottish Cup
« Last post by ErnSal on October 29, 2015, 08:57:37 PM »
I'm pleased with the third round draw. An away game against a second division team. We have shown that we can compete in the Lowland league. We have shown that we can beat the best of Junior football. Now the challenge is one level above us. I know it's a one off game but it might give us a clue as to whether there is a gap between lowland league and division 2. This will be an away game that I don't want to miss.
Forza Colts!

What a performance!
Every player was a hero. From start to finish the team gave 100% and their victory was so well deserved. Credit must also go to the coaching staff who have assembled and organised such a great team. They were a joy to watch.
And what a great atmosphere! Today it felt as if Cumbernauld had embraced their home town team.

Could this be another first for the Colts? Highlights of their game with a commentary. Very professionally done.
I watched the penalty claim incident and I think I can see why the referee might have thought that the keeper got a touch. Selkirk touches the ball so that he can go around the keeper but the direction of his touch has the same effect as if the keeper has touched it. So my verdict is a penalty but I can see how the referee got it wrong from his angle.

Lowland League Team / Half full or half empty?
« Last post by ErnSal on October 17, 2015, 07:47:41 PM »
No game for us today but some interesting results. The top three teams in the league all lost but it meant that some of the 'middle' teams gained points and moved above us. So, we now have one or two games in hand in relation to most of the teams above us. Personally, I'm pleased with the results for two reasons:
1) We continue to see that every team in this league is beatable and no team is beyond catching.
2) The defeat of the top three teams means that if we have a good run from now on picking up the points that we deserve we can close the gap.
Spartans are the only team that I have seen that outplayed us but they haven't consistently outplayed the other teams in the league and have had bad results against teams that we outplayed. So......I think the glass is half full.

Forza Colts!

As I said in another thread, I came along to watch today's game as a complete neutral and left totally infuriated for you guys after a totally inept refereeing performance.

Ek's dirty tactics went largely unpunished for long periods of the game, so they got worse and became more frequent. I was sitting too far away to see if the EK penalty decision was correct or not, however you saw it coming because the ref had lost total control of the game by that time and the Colts players were becoming more and more wound up and started to lose a little bit of shape. I have no doubt EK knew what they were doing and it worked.

I was sitting directly across from the EK box and the penalty shout in the dying minutes was as stonewall as you could get, it happened right in front of me and it was a clear penalty, no wonder the people around me and the bench were irate, I actually shook my head in disbelief when I looked over at the ref to see him waving play on. I know he didn't keep up with the field of play at that point but surely he could see it where he was, it was as clear as day.

Anyway, I was impressed with what I saw from your club today. Nothing to do with being a Stirling fan but I thought Blair Munn was excellent in the middle of the park for you and always looked to work the ball. I'll certainly be back later on in the season when we have another free weekend.

Good luck for the remainder of the season.

As the final few minutes approached it looked as if Colts would take all three points and move up the table only three points behind EK but then everything went wrong. Gave away a penalty, had our own last minute penalty claim turned down and our goalkeeper was shown the red card (which I didn't actually see). If only we had converted some of the chances we made when we were 1-0 up. Once again Colts have shown that they are as good as the top teams in this league.
The big question now is whether our goalkeeper will be available for the Scottish Cup game.

Hello Buster. Thanks for getting in contact with us and for showing an interest in our club. Unfortunately we do not sell Pin Badges but you've given me an idea for the future! Hope you enjoy the game on Saturday.

I'm actually a Stirling Albion fan however with us having a spare weekend this Saturday, I was going to head along to watch your game against EK.

However, I also collect Pin Badges and was wondering you your club sold them at Broadwood? A lot of lower league clubs don't, so thought I would double check before searching the internet for one.
