Henry-V

Accies 14 – Garnock 8

It’s St. Crispin’s Day today, did you know that? Probably not. And whilst you were at school, you probably didn’t pay any attention to your English Depts exhortations to appreciate Shakespeare’s famous (or infamous) rallying call in “Henry V” either, did you? Well (though paraphrased just a little bit), let me remind you with this […]

Shield News: Clydebank 12, Accies 91

So then, after the travails of a bruising league encounter at Carrick last week, it was back to the BT Shield Competition earlier today in sunny yet curiously welcoming Clydebank. Admittedly, our starting line-up for a variety of reasons (notably “hair-appointments”, shopping trips for soft-furnishings and “prom queens” demanding attention against the predictable threat of […]

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 […]

Annan 34, Accies 34

The value of travelling down into Dumfriesshire and enduring an expensive bus journey is almost always measured by the quality and volume of the banter on the journey home. Admittedly the boys were well-fuelled for it with a quite obscene amount of alcohol onboard Fairline’s finest, courtesy of the local Co-op “mega-store”, but they cranked […]

1st XV v EK

Result: 28 – 13 Says it all really, boys and girls. A disappointing loss, especially given all the field position we enjoyed and the brief moment in the second half when, with a penalty to kick ourselves into a 14 – 16 lead, hopes did momentarily rise that we could go on to secure the […]

Irvine 17 Accies 6

The scoreline suggests we took a bit of a beating down at Maress but, as it so often does, it lies. The truth? They won, we lost. But it was “eek-sey, peek-sey” for most of this match.We made 2 mistakes and that led to 2 scores. And though we competed throughout the 80 minutes, we […]
