Killie 0 Accies 65

It was 22 degrees down in Killie for the September league opener of our 2014/15 season but the ambient temperature wasn’t the only thing that kept the supporters on the touchline “toasty”! From the off, Accies attacked with shape and purpose, forwards and backs combining well to secure ball, distribute effectively and dominate their opponents […]

Though devastated to hear the sad news this week that  Rosco’s drunken fall while taking in the Welsh match last week in Cardiff means he steps aside with an injured wrist, the very lovely Ms Vidya Bayan insisted upon returning as this weeks 2′s Up! Favourite. And she cheered up no end when it was […]
