    Strathmiglo Utd

    Pete you mention too many egos at the top table which is the league committee so your having a go at them or at least one of them. As for teams folding because of cup game, come on be sensible here. Kingdom folded as highlighted in earlier post because players who were able to play didnae turn up, others were injured so they couldnae field a team. We played you's last week and had a committee man listed as a sub and he ended up going on simply because injuries, work and holidays and thats with 20 plus boys signed. It's a different breed of footballers today from we played, fair dooes to them that's their choice but some boys let their team mates down as most teams will agree. As for Strath aye Fife cup winners last year but losing 4 or 5 players with the manager before the season starts disnae help the situation for who took over. Hope no more teams fold or at this rate it will be a 2 league set up next year

    Well Jaz seems your season has started already, Hopefully you will be a wee bit less negative in your observations and quotes through out the season but at least you give us a laugh every now and again. The TOPIC is cup draws, can you enlighten us on them please if you know

    New Teams for 2018/19

    no often i agree with you Pete but your right, the junior set up in Fife and probably most of the East of Scotland are suffering because of how the leagues are set up. Teams are traveling too far nowadays on a regular basis and can they afford it ......... only they can tell that. Scottish cup games meant a bus because you were playing a team 50/60 miles away at least but because of the movement in the leagues you have that on regular basis. The previous Fife league had the furthest game as St Andrews playing Clackmannan which was possibly only 2 games a season. Attendances at the games now a days are they good, again I can't comment. Costs to go and support your team can your local supporter afford this ? Old league set up was it better, I would say yes from a selfish point of view. Local derbies were brilliant, The Bell v Albert, Thornton v Glens, Hob v Crossgates, Oakley v Tulliallan/Clachmannan. Do players get paid too much nowadays. Maybe some of the better players do as they can organise a better deal than they should get ( heard this from a manager ), but there are some junior players who get paid are they any better than the good Ammy players. Not saying all players are like this but some have aspirations well above their station. Junior football is a must in our local areas, hopefully it continues but it needs the support of local ammy teams to provide the next in line for them.

    Results Thursday 19th

    not decrying your thoughts, but EVERY other team is playing thro the same scenario of playing games at this time of season with ONLY the squad they have and are finding it difficult to field strong teams to compete and barter for the success that every team strives for. I admit I am not a fan of being able to PLAY for 2 teams over the season albeit under the same team heading but thats the rules and you are doing everything by the rule book so batter on. If teams would like to change this rule then a proposal needs to be in before the AGM. Loads of people have options and voice it on here so this is the opportunity for them to take it to the next step .........if they want ???

    Stealth thats what this game is all about ( individuals or teams ) will decry other players or teams about their ability's to achieve anything but you find out this is through either jealously or bad feeling, so don't be dissapointed by their reaction. New season .... New formate ...... New League set up........... Make sure your team is represented at our AGM and express your CLUBS VEIW towards how best this association can go forward. MIND it's not Kingdom league or the Fife league any more and the MAIN POINT is that the WE ALL work to enhance this league to be one of the best in the surrounding area's. Cheers an admirer of your work ethic
  9. prev post that pittenweem v ylum game on, is this still on with the rain we have had overnight ? any other games on ?

    KFAFA FIXTURES Saturday March 10

    nae game then..... £120 must be the average for astro's in Fife !!!! Not questioning you but what courses take up the whole weekend ............... isnae the sports first aid course that WE all have to attend at a highly inflated cost. If the same as with the Fife trust on the golf scene that is a lot cheaper than other clubs as the try and promote Fife sport. Not saying that they don't discount costs but other Regions seem to do a lot better than us Come on folks there has to be a way forward that teams can get a discount and so promote Fife fitba.

    KFAFA FIXTURES Saturday March 10

    How come when we've have played teams from the Edinburgh and Glasgow areas that they get discount from the council on the cost of hiring astro pitches. I'm not a 100% sure but think it only cost them between £65 and £80 for the 2hr slot. Played at Saughton Sports complex a couple of years back and there were 3 Scottish cup ties played one after the other. We were the 1 o'clock slot. Also played thro the Glasgow area and it was the same, discounted prices. If this was the same thro here more astro's would be used and not stand idle at weekends and so money would be going back in to the sports council coffers.
