So the old broken football goals are down and hopefully we will soon have the new ones in place!

Thanks again to National Lottery SFA Central Region and GSR Central Academy for funding support


So here is a challenge for all the teams in the Forth & Endrick Football League and everyone in the villages too!
Help the Scottish Football Supporters Association who are working with an infectious diseases research programme run by the University of Glasgow to gather as many pairs of football boots (must be in good condition) that can be sent to the villages in northern Malawi . Football is being used as a community communications tool to help develop important medical research. Sadly most of the players boys, girls and adults don't have boots to wear!
The village team that gathers the highest number of boots by 15th April will win a coaching session from the legendary player, manager and coach Jimmy Bone!


We plan to try and get our village football team back in action this year so we are actively recruiting for players for all positions. Past players or new players will be welcome.
This season we hope to play a friendlies as we hopefully work towards full league activity for 23/24.
We know it is a competitive league so in the first instance players who have played at this level before or younger players 16 plus who are keen to make a mark. please get in touch with Cameron Skinner or Paul Goodwin


The big tidy up has begun!

Getting ready for all the Spring time activities!

Scottish Football Alliance Survey 24/01/2022

Scottish Football Alliance Survey

This is one for any football fans our there from Grassroots to the professional game.

An Invitation to Give Something Back just answer yes or no!

The Scottish Football Supporters Association has been asked by the Scottish Football Alliance to provide an independent insight into what fans see as the key issues in our game.
Believe it or not Scottish Football really needs the input of supporters like you.

You can do this in a few minutes by answering this simple list of yes/no answers.

If you have a little more time, we’d really appreciate your detailed views and suggestions on any or all of the things that previous research has identified as important for Scottish Football.

This is just a start and as things progress, we plan to work closely with The Scottish Football Alliance providing further fan insight because fans collectively have the ability to see the bigger picture and the need for common good as a basis for moving forward.

We have kept the questions simple Yes/No and would ask that you consider what is best for Scottish Football moving forward.
This will paint a picture of where the fans want the game to be.
The Scottish Football Alliance is tasked with how the game can then get there and will need your help, your insight, and your support.

The questions here are simply stage one in a fact finding exercise.
There are no right and no wrong answers.

What a cracking day at Kippen Sports Field - KSDL today with Dave McPherson ex Rangers, Hearts and Scotland and Simone Enrici ex Raith Rovers talking to parents/ grandparents about the opportunities with a scholarship at GSR.

Those who didn't manage to see the boys don't worry the will be back in a few weeks time. Exciting times for our boys with a guarantee of this option if they work hard at school and at football.

Great to see football back at the park when GSR Central Academy held the first post lockdown training session!


A reminder to everyone in the village that no dogs are allowed on the football field.

It is disappointing to see that no matter how many signs we put up some dog owners choose to ignore this simple request.

Thank you


Good news we will be back in business from 13th July!
