Top Goals SPL Season 2013/14
Welcome to the Elgin Boys Club website
The Elgin and District Boys Football Association as the club was originally known, was set up in 1964 to "promote the moral and physical welfare of boys aged between 10 and 17 through the provision, under proper adult supervision, of games of football".
The years have gone by and the language altered a bit but founder and driving force John Cameron's ideal has remained the same - football for young lads.
The club players are split into three sections by age - Junior, Intermediate and Senior - and take the names of the original teams:
Juniors play an eight-a-side game (11 player squad) on a smaller pitch with matching goal size.
Intermediates play eleven-a-side (15 player squad) on a slightly larger pitch.
Seniors play the full size game again with a 15 man squad.
Matches are played on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during the school summer term (see fixtures list) at Morriston Playing Fields with all matches starting at 7.00pm. All games are supervised by team managers who have undergone a Disclosure Scotland check and the games (apart from the Juniors) are allocated referees.
The Presentations Night at Elgin Town Hall on Monday 14th September was well attended with players and staff from Elgin City on hand to help with the handing out of medals and cups. MC Neil Cruickshanks introduced the top table and President Tiger Porter gave a speech thanking all concerned for making this season so memorable. Mike Christie was presented with a bottle of whisky to mark his fiftieth year of service to the club.
Many thanks to Neil C for his work in organising the night and Mike for doing the raffle both on the night and at the senior cup final at Boroughbriggs. Between them £482 was raised for club funds.
Don't forget that the club whisky (Speyside 10 year old malt) is still available from Gordon & McPhail priced £24. Christmas is just round the corner ....
Hope to see you next spring
Presentations Night will be in Elgin Town Hall on Monday 14th September at 7pm. Those receiving awards should be there at 6.30pm. All welcome.
Junior managers are reminded that all their squad will receive a medal for participating in the competitions in the Junior Section this year.
