Ryan Craig and Aaron McKirdy starred for the South of Scotland under 17 select against the North at Fort William
on Sunday 2nd. October, this was a very close encounter and the South were unlucky to lose by 5-4 after extra time.
We also had three players selected for the under 14 team, Marcus Plank, Andrew McLachlan and Scott Harvie played
on the same day, also at Fort William.
Although again our boys played very well the South
lost by 8-1.
Congratulations to all our young players for being selected for these matches,
they are a credit to our club.
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.
George 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.

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.
