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.

SENIORS SUMMER CUP
Congratulations go to Waverley who took the honours beating Saracens (3 - 2) on Saturday (23rd) at Boroughbriggs.
The fair sized crowd were entertained to an excellent game of football which threatened to go to extra time but on balance the stronger Waverley team deserved to win. Some tired legs out there at full time I'll bet!
After a few words of thanks from Boys Club chairman Bob Stewart, the cup was presented by Elgin City FC director Cecil Jack. Thanks again to City for providing the facilities at Boroughbriggs.
