Still ill, still on holiday – but football, eh? Bloody hell

Still ill, but I make radio contact to advise that my home town team has been elected to the Scottish Football League.

Well done, Annan.  Thankfully, the confusion among radio presenters who believed it was in Edinburgh (it’s more than 70 miles away) and those who have unfairly commented suggesting it’s rugby territory (sadly appearing to mistake south west Scotland with south east Scotland) persists.  That Annan is understood to thave been the leading choice on the technical aspects of the bid is obviously a given that the gainsayers ignore.  Anyway, as teams make their way down the M74 and head off at the Eaglesfield junction I’m sure that they’ll get a warm welcome at Galabank next season.

And while the Beeb note the league positions this season they omit the two big non-league trophies indicative of Annan’s capabilities – the last ever Scottish Qualifying Cup South in 2006-7 and this year’s first ever SFA South Region Challenge Cup, with a win against fellow SFL contenders Edinburgh City.  

Well done Annan Athletic, good luck in the league, and I look forward to popping along to some of the away games this season in the lucky group of train stops around Falkirk.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

    Yay! Let’s hope it doesn’t turn sour as it did with Annan’s neighbours to the south.

    Welcome to Annan Athletic and good luck to them (except of course when they play Dumbarton)
