  2. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    two things numbnuts.. One, the testimonial is not run by the club and Two, no, I was asked by one of the testimonial committee to put this in here. I hope this helps.
  3. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    THE Dave Mackay Testimonial match featuring St Johnstone and Dundee will feature legends from both clubs. Rival managers Tommy Wright and Neil McCann, who go head to head in the top flight derby this weekend at Dens Park, have agreed to allow veterans to pull on the boots for the final half hour of the McDiarmid Park game on Friday, October 6. The testimonial committee is working up a final list of former players keen to make an appearance and honour the former Perth captain. Chairman Scott Findlay said: “We are pleased to announce the game is being sponsored by Booker and Kilmac with both company names featuring on the shirts being supplied by TTL Sport. “We are looking to follow up on the success of the recent sell-out testimonial dinner at the Dewars Centre. It is an opportunity for fans to honour their Scottish Cup winning captain, who was denied a chance to bid a proper farewell because of injury. “We have been delighted by the number of former players from both teams keen to participate. It should be a great night.” Admission to the game, kick-off 7.30pm, will be £15 and £5 concessions (U16s and seniors). A limited number of hospitality packages are available at £55 a head, including three course meal, souvenir programme and half-time tea and biscuits. To book hospitality packages and match programme adverts, contact committee members or
  4. Saints v Hibs 9-9-17

    Foster gave Scougall a severe bollocking but it was more I think for not tracking back I think. poor wee Scougall looked like he might greet.. Personally I like to see that sort of passion from our players.. Foster is very committed..
  5. Saints v Hibs 9-9-17

    Great point this afternoon. We played well for about 15 minutes at the start and for 10 minutes in the 2nd half but apart from that we were not close to our best. Far to deep for most of the game, we continually gave them the ball back and just encouraged them. Some great last gasp defending and goal line clearances as well as a couple of top class saves from the keeper. Hibs are nae mugs and will win more than they lose, so all in all, given we never achieved the heights we have done so far, I'll take a point.. Oh and the referee was fooking hopeless as were his linos.. #stillunbeaten

  7. Saints v Hibs 9-9-17

    The Hibees come to town this Saturday. It will be interesting to see just how good/bad they are. I fancy us for 3 points but suspect it won't be easy. Will he manager/ player of the month hoodoo strike or will Saints put that myth to bed once and for all ? I see Muzz is back training and available.. Thoughts on the game??
  8. Dave Mackay Testimonial Dinner

    We got served very swiftly doon at the front. ;-). Just to let everyone know, the Club bought Daves cup final top for a staggering £1350. Well played Charlie Fraser ( Brooner was still in Vilnius after the Scotland game and probably just as well. He'll probably have tears in his eyes as he writes the cheque. lololololoololo) Boots went for near £400, signed Gareth Bale Real Madrid top went for around £700. The auction was very successful . Overall it was a great ( if a bit long) night. Club poet was excellent, both speakers were rip roaringly funny and Tommy Wright did a wee chat on stage with Cuptie. Also a very nice and funny video from Del and Doc at Aberdeen.. Well done to Scott and all the committee for the hard work they put in to make sure it was a great night.
  9. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    Well I for one think Dundee are a great choice of opponent.. As has already been said, it's a free weekend & any Saints v Dundee game will attract fans. It's easy for Wazzy to sit in his ivory tower over in the good old US of A and rip into Scott and the rest of his hard working testimonial committee members, but you are wrong on more than one front Romeo my old friend.. If you can get a testimonial match against local opposition then you are able to tap into some away supporters spending some coin as well as the home fans. The whole reason for the match is to raise funds for Captain Dave and this game will do that. For home fans it should matter not who we play as we are there to salute our cup winning captain, but the fact is , we all love a game against the great unwashed, testimonial or not. I am gonna go out on a limb here and say that the Dees will bring at least 700 paying bodies and hopefully the crowd will be north of 3000. If we can't muster 2500 fans ( 15,000 at the final) to show our appreciation for Dave, it will be a disgrace. Now rather than be negative Wazzy, how about making a big bid on Cupties cup final shirt.. It has to go for four figures & it would be wonderful if it did and then the buyer gave it back to our man.. That buyer could be you Romeo.. If you want to bid on the night I am happy to open a phone line from the Big Apple so you can show how much you care.. Maybe I could even ask SB if he might shake your hand. ;-) COYS.
  10. I have been asked by the testimonial committee to post this message.. DERBY DATE FOR CUPTIE TESTIMONIAL ST Johnstone’s Scottish Cup winning captain Dave Mackay will be honoured by fans at a testimonial match on Friday, October 6. Tommy Wright’s side will face the defender’s first club, Dundee, in a Tayside derby at McDiarmid Park with a 7.30pm kick-off. Testimonial committee chairman Scott Findlay welcomed the news. He said: “We are delighted that Dundee and their manager Neil McCann have agreed to take part in this match to acknowledge Cuptie’s contribution to St Johnstone. “It promises to be a memorable night and supporters will turn out in big numbers to honour one of the club’s most popular players of the modern era. “Dave, of course, also has strong ties to Dundee and I’m sure Dark Blues supporters will be keen to take in the game.” Mackay, now manager at Stirling Albion after being forced to quit playing last year with a hip injury, began his career at Dens when Jocky Scott was manager and was in a Dark Blues side bossed by Jim Duffy which lost out to Rangers in the 2003 Scottish Cup final. He made more than 100 appearances for Dundee before leaving for Oxford. Mackay signed for Saints from Livingston in 2009 and went on to make 266 starts, including the historic 2014 Scottish Cup final victory over Dundee United. On Saturday, the Dewars Centre in Perth hosts a testimonial dinner supported by Booker, with more than 300 tickets sold for the event. Dress code is lounge suit. The bars open from 6pm and it starts at 7.30pm sharp. Bids will be taken for Mackay’s cup final shirt and boots, along with other auction items donated by Gleneagles, broadcaster Tam Cowan, actor Colin McCredie, Morrison and Mackay, Castle Stuart and Aberdeen FC. A signed Gareth Bale Real Madrid shirt also goes under the hammer.
