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 Senior Cup final will be on Saturday 29th August at Borough Briggs. Kick-off 7.00pm: Admission - Free (Mike Christie will probably ask you to buy a raffle ticket though).
Presentations Night will be in Elgin Town Hall on Monday 14th September at 7pm. More on this later.
END OF SEASON - ALMOST
Well that's it for another season. Hope you all enjoyed the highs and lows.
Seniors - Despite having equal points in the League, Saracens win as they beat Corinthians in the head-to-head. This gives Saracens the double (winning the League Cup) and a chance of the treble if they beat Crusaders in the final of the Summer Cup after the summer holidays.
Intermediates - St Columbas made it a double victory by winning the League as well as the League Cup but couldn't make it three in a row thanks to a solid preformance by Saracens who went on to win the Summer Cup playing against Cameronians in the final. See photo here...
Juniors - Although no medals are given out at junior level it looks as if the youngsters needed no incentive to rattle in the goals - just look at the results in the three 'competitions'.
Thanks to all the coaches, referees, parents and supporters and ground staff (Mike, Robbie and Phil) who make all this possible. And of course to the boys who put so much effort in to the season.
Hope to see you all next year. For you older lads who have just finished at senior level - we're always on the lookout for new coaches!
