Arbroath 1 – 1 Stirling Albion

The Lichties had to settle for a point against Stirling Albion at a blustery Gayfield this afternoon. The first half was full of chances for both sides, but nobody could find the back of the net with Stirling keeper Chris Smith making a series of fine saves to deny the Lichties but both teams went into the break at 0-0.

The Bino’s took the lead in the 57th minute when a cross-come-shot by Darren Smith bounced off the post and into the Arbroath net but Steven Doris pulled Arbroath level in the 64th minute after latching onto an Omar Kader through ball. In the closing minutes both teams had chances to win it with Bryan Hodge making a clearance off the line before Omar Kader seemed to be taken out by a challenge by Connor Quigley.

With Forfar Athletic suffering defeat at Berwick Rangers thanks to a late winner by former Lichtie Gary Phillips the Loons have an 8 point lead over the Lichties with 10 games to play.

Montrose 1 – 3 Arbroath

Arbroath fought back to secure all 3 points over a stubborn Montrose side in horrendous conditions this afternoon at Links Park.

The Lichties were dealt a blow minutes before kick off when Ricky Little was overcome with illness and had to withdraw from the starting line up giving young on-loan Dundee defender, Matty Smyth a full debut as he partnered Colin Hamilton in the centre of defence.

Montrose took the lead in the 26th minute and it was probably deserved on the balance of play but came from an Arbroath error. A clearance fell to the feet of Matty Smith at the edge of the box and the young on-loan Dundee United striker took a touch before curling the ball into the far corner of the net out of the reach of Ricky Gomes.

However the introduction of Ryan McCord and Bryan Prunty at half time made a big difference as Arbroath scored 3 second half goals.

Arbroath’s first corner of the second half resulted in the comeback. Ryan McCord whipped the ball into the box and Matty Smyth rose up to bullet a header down on the the surface before bouncing into the back of the net in the 58th minute as he made a dream debut.

A foul on Bryan Prunty just outside the Montrose box by Greg Pascazio allowed Ryan McCord to step up and curl a free kick into the bottom corner past Jordan Millar to give the Lichties the lead in the 70th minute.

As the seconds ticked down, Arbroath tried to hold up the ball near the corner flag but after a passing movement Kader was allowed to run into the box before he tried to tee up McCord, as McCord’s shot was blocked the ball fell back to the feet of Kader who smashed in a left foot shot to secure all 3 points.

There are only a few tickets remaining for Arbroath Football Clubs 21st Annual Sportsman Dinner, which is to be held on Friday 10th March 2017 in the Caird Hospitality Suite at Gayfield. Act fast if you want to attend as there are only 75 covers, and this event will sell out.

Supporters should note that this replaces the event which is normally held at the Meadowbank Inn, and this is the only Sportsman Dinner this year.

The special guest speakers announced so far are Arbroath manager Dick Campbell and former Rangers and Scotland winger Willie Henderson.

Anyone who has ever spent time in a room with Dick Campbell will know just how entertaining he is and how captivating he is as an after dinner speaker. As we know Dick has had an incredible journey in Scottish Football and his story keeps growing as he leads our team as we challenge for promotion in League 2. Along with his charity work and a successful businessman, Dick has many hilarious stories to share.

Willie Henderson is a Rangers legend with almost 500 appearances at Ibrox from 1960 to 1972 along with 5 goals and 29 international caps for Scotland. Making his debut at the age of 16 for Rangers and standing tall at 5′-4″ he picked up the nickname “Wee Willie”

Tickets are now on sale at £40

Arbroath Football Club - Official added 40 new photos to the album: Arbroath FC Youth Match Day Experience - ACSC 2008 Squad — at Gayfield Park.

Yesterday we welcomed back the Arbroath Community Sports Club (ACSC) 2008 squad to take part in our Youth Match Day Experience.

The local club who have coaches with SFA Qualifications give boys and girls with potential somewhere to go and be part of a great team.

The young footballers got right behind the team as they sat in the main stand cheering on the Lichties before they took part in two very competitive mini games in front of the main stand who cheered them on.

They then took in a lap of the pitch being applauded by both sets of supporters before watching the rest of the game after some snacks.

We hope they all had a great afternoon and hope to see them back at Gayfield in the future.

C'mon the Lichties!
