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.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER REGISTRATION?
Thanks to all who came down to Boroughbriggs on Sunday to register. Team allocation will be on Monday 23rd March when an assessment of the player's ability will be made by the coaches (usually based on the previous year) and the teams chosen in a way that spreads the varying abilities of the boys evenely. New members will be assessed on Sunday 22nd March at Cooper Park (check the hand-out you were given at Registration) and this will feed into the allocation process.
Players with late applications will be put on a waiting list.
During the week after player allocation the coach responsible for your team will get in touch with you to give you all the information you need.
Just to whet your appetite I've uploaded the fixtures for the coming season. All you need to know now is which team you'll be in.
Good luck for the coming season and have fun.
