Unfortunately, September didn’t go well in terms of results, with only one point taken from the nine available.
Greig, Marc and the players are as disappointed as anyone and they are determined to bring about improvement during the coming month that sees us have three of our four league matches at home.
It isn’t going to be easy, however, with our next two fixtures against arguably the two strongest teams in the league – Dunfermline Athletic and Morton – both of whom are full-time.
Our three home games are against Dunfermline, Stenhousemuir and Airdrieonians and, as ever, I extent a warm welcome on behalf of everyone at SAFC to their fans, directors, management and players.
The Dunfermline game has an unusual addition – the filming of a TV Commercial – and I apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to our fans as the production company set about getting people in the right place to capture the scenes they require.
There is a fee payable to the club for agreeing to take part in this venture and, whilst there has been considerable extra work involved over the past few weeks, we are not in a position to turn down commercial revenue from any source, providing, of course, it is not deemed to be offensive.
We have been assured by the production company that the club will be projected in a positive light, although it may not be obvious to the uninitiated that Stirling Albion (and Dunfermline Athletic) are playing the starring roles!
Our hospitality numbers continue to go from strength to strength, with some games approaching capacity, so if you’re thinking of making a reservation, it’s time to stop and make it! Please contact Neil at the club, through the normal channels. At £65 (including VAT) you won’t get a better deal anywhere in the UK!
On December 6th (v Peterhead) we have a special festive offer and the Stirling Albion squad that beat Selkirk 20-0 in the Scottish Cup 30 years ago will be in attendance. Very limited spaces are left for this one, so don’t delay!
Finally, a plea to the “fan” who starts shouting abuse towards the dugout at home games, within minutes of kick-off irrespective of the score – please give it a rest and get behind the team and the management, at least until you’ve got a reason to be annoyed!
