The Club would like to congratulate Connor Greene on becoming the Shire’s joint all time highest scoring defender with his double in our last match against University of Stirling on 28th December.

Well done Connor and we look forward to more of your goals!

 

100 Club December Gnome and Shire Christmas Gnome Raffle Draws

Two draws were made at half time yesterday at our home match against East Kilbride. We would like to say a big thank you to Cameron Fleming who helped Interim East Stirlingshire Chairman, Bill Sharp, with the draws.

The 1st draw was the December 100 Club Gnome draw which saw Tracey Daley win the much sought after Gnome.

The 2nd draw was the Shire Christmas raffle for an “Away” Shire Gnome and this was won by Jay Daly who’s grandad, John Daly, bought him lucky No. 240 ticket. We would like to thank everyone who supported the Christmas raffle venture. A grand total raised for our club was an amazing £520.

The 100 Club returns this Friday night with the December cash draw.

Club Statement – Andy Rodgers

Statement – Today at an SFA Disiplinary hearing player/coach Andy Rodgers received a Two game ban for being sent from the touchline during our recent match v Edinburgh University in November for a breach of rule 203.

Andy and the club admitted all sections of the Notice of complaint brought with reference to rule 203 and will not appeal against the sanction.

This unfortunately rules Andy out our next two matches including Saturdays match with East Kilbride.

The club had challenged the initial Notice of complaint issues which had two charges listed and potentially a 6 game ban but after representation and discussion with the compliance officer and SFA over a number of weeks the notice was amended to one charge to which Andy admitted.
