    55saint reacted to trevrut1 in European travel   
    As a Saints supporter and Manager of No1 Currency Perth. I am offering a special rate for all Saints fans travelling to Europe. You will get our enhanced rate instead of our high st rate. (Example today's in store rate is 1.1047 but our special rate  for Saints fans would be 1.1150) obviously rates change daily but the special rate for saints fans will be for as long as we are in Europe. You'll find us in St Johns Shopping Centre

    55saint reacted to AthensSaint in Saints Exiles POTY Award - Season 2016-2017   
    Joe The Throw asked SixtiesSaintee, BabyChunder and self to thank all the Exiles for taking time to vote for him and his fellow team mates. Not only did he answer the numerous questions thrown at him at our table but bought us a couple of rounds of drinks in to the bargain. He hardly had a minute all through the dinner to eat due to people asking for autographs and pictures. Every request by the kids was accepted with a big Irish smile. He is a credit to the club and I am personally extremely pleased he was awarded the Exiles trophy. 
    Danny Swanson scooped up the majority of the awards on the evening but on behalf of the Exiles we had the opportunity to extend our thanks for his professionalism.
    A huge mention needs to be made for Paul Paton. Paul won an award and in his very honest acceptance speech he stated that due to past history that he recognized he was not a very popular signing with the saints fans. He was inundated with fans during the evening telling him we were wrong. We have one very happy new saintee in our squad. Thanks Paul.

    If it was to go to regional academy, then it would be sfa run, and geared up for performance school kids, also with the Tayside clubs it wouldn't work.
    I had heard about this breakaway group and I think it's right that they do this, the criteria for project brave is far to expensive and unrealistic for smaller clubs. 
    Saints do not have elite status, but are on course to win the 17s league again and are still undefeated, the 16s who play against elite sides have only lost once, but even with being so good because they are not in the elite league and nobody in performance schools their players do not get anywhere near a Scotland squad, only Scotland school squads.
    Also been hearing saints now have a clear plan for bringing through youth to the first team, if it all works out you are going to be blessed with some of the best young players you've ever seen,, 
    The academy isn't perfect but the coaching is excellent they play some great football and given the right opportunities and some other things saints academy will provide a lot of players to the first team. 
    I think there is a 16s game on Wednesday againsts Partick thistle on the astro, come along and see for yourself

    I've only seen a couple of u20s games this season but have been impressed with young Gordon at cb and hope he gets another chance in the 1st team particularly after a good performance earlier in the season.

    Persistence bursting thru' 3 tackles and a fine finish from Cameron Thomson.
    Denied a goal and ultimately a draw by the officials, (as said earlier), when the ball "was 2ft over the line".
    As captured by cameraman at that end of the pitch.
    Young midfielder/fullback McCann came on at h/t to partner Ando in the centre of defence.
    A lot of play came from his calmness and intelligent use of the ball.
    Davidson shot hit the l/h post with keeper beaten,( in the first half). Rebound was too strong for the inrushing O' Reilley who could not make a connection. 
    Otherwise 1st half was a write off.
