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.
EBC FIXTURES 2014
This year's fixtures are now available on this website. They are also available for download as pdf files.
This year marks the start of Elgin Boys Club's second half-century in existence. In order to modernise our club and keep in line with SYFA guidance our Juniors will not now be competing for trophies.
The philosophy behind this is explained in the National Player Pathway found here.
This proposal for the Juniors was adopted at this year's Boys Club AGM and is seen as the way forward. It is also essential for the club to comply with this guidance when registering for SYFA membership. No changes will be made to either the Intermediates or Seniors.
As usual all games start at 7.00pm at Morriston Playing Fields. Be there in good time to set up the goals and warm up. Also take any litter, water bottles etc home with you or incur Mike Christie's wrath!
Enjoy the season and good luck to all.
