10 Best Goals - SPL Season 2012/13
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.
END OF THE SEASON ....ALMOST
With the summer holidays upon us and lots of you enjoying some warm weather either in Costa del Exotico or Costa del Lossiemouth it just remains for the EBC committee to thank the coaches, referees, ground staff, supporters and of course you lads for all your dedication and enthusiasm this season.
Congratulations go to Intermediate side Crusaders who did the trebble by beating Saracens in the Summer Cup final - a very strong side.
The Senior Summer Cup Final between Waverley and Saracens will be played at Boroughbriggs on Saturday 23rd August. Kick off 6.30pm
Well done to our intermediates as a select squad beat an Inverness side 7 - 1. We'll get you a game against Brazil next time - you'd probably beat them after their performance in the World Cup!
Again congratulations to our Senior side whoe lost narrowly to Alness (at Dalmore) on 20th July. The 6-5 score reflects a high standard and a game which managers Robbie Russell and Phil Stuart said they were unlucky not to win. More details and photo here...
I can't say too much about the Junior competitions as technically there weren't any this year (under the SYFA National Player Pathway rules - see earlier NEWS).
The committee will be reviewing the position taken by the club on this before next year but it would help if the Junior coaches could provide feedback either to me at email@example.com or to any committee member.
