On Friday 1st. July our all conquering P7 and under team toured the town on the open
top bus, going from the bus garage to Craigmore and then to Guildford square where it was met by scores of supporters who
showed their delight with thunderous applause. They then went to Port Bannatyne where Rhona Donald of the Port Inn had laid
on a generous bbq for the boys, what a day they had.
Well done to all our young players and to their coaches who put in so much effort on training days and taking the
boys to games. Thanks also to all the parents and other supporters who went along to lend their support, it makes all the
difference and spurs the boys on.
The membership fees of £50 for senior players and £10 for juniors will be due
before or at our AGM in January 2016 and we will accept payment in stages. We would also like to stress the importance of
our Club Lottery in contributing to our income and would ask you all to play this weekly, its a way of
supporting your club and an opportunity to win some money.
To all Members
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute to the success of our club, a lot of work
goes on behind the scenes that we sometimes take for granted . A team on the park depends on
the hard work and efforts of all club members.
McNeish works tirelessly in keeping our clubhouse up to standard ably assisted by many of our players
who also give freely of their time to make repairs to the property. George can also be found behind
the bar on match days and other occasions dispensing great cheer to all.
We turn up on match days to a clean clubhouse and the away teams
are treated to excellent meals prepared and served by Nancy Gourlay and Margaret Whitelaw, the
soup is always delicious as is Nancy`s home baking. Margaret ensures our playing strips are washed and
ready for each match. Sincere thanks to you both.
takes a great deal of money to run our teams and maintain our clubhouse, in David Herriot we have a treasurer
who looks after our finances with great skill, he ensures money is made available whenever necessary
and also that we have funds in the bank.
comes from three other main sources of income, we receive a payment from Argyll and Bute Council for providing
changing facilities for other local clubs, however it is the efforts of two other club members who provide a constant
Barry Martin puts a great deal of effort into gaining and arranging various lets for our clubhouse
including weddings, birthday parties etc. as well as dog training lessons and fitness classes for
adults all providing good monetary income, this takes up a great deal of his time and often goes without
notice, our thanks, well done Barry.
Last but not least we have Tommy Howat ably running our Club Lottery, he goes
round the various outlets every Monday collecting the tickets and money, supervises the draw and pays
out the winnings. Without this source of income we would struggle financially. Thank you Tommy. We would ask once again for your support by buying tickets for this lotto draw, it offers
good prize money to those who participate.
Once again my apologies to anyone I have omitted from this list, the fault will be entirely mine.
