Arbroath 2 – 1 Elgin City – Post Match Interviews

Post Match Interview – Dick Campbell

Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell spoke to the press after yesterdays match. Dick was full of praise for the way that Elgin City performed and thought a draw would have been a fair result but is happy his side are getting closer to the fitness level he wants for the start of the Championship League Campaign.

Post Match Interview – Steven Doris

Arbroath goalscorer Steven Doris spoke to the press after yesterdays match.

Steven speaks of how having a pre-season this summer has helped improves his fitness after missing out last season due to recovering from his injury which he has put behind him.

With a goal against Hearts, a double against Hibernian and yesterday’s winning goal against Elgin City it’s been a great start for Steven.

Arbroath 2 – 1 Elgin City

Arbroath 2 – 1 Elgin City

A goal deep in injury time by Steven Doris got the Lichties off to a perfect start in the Betfred Cup yesterday at Gayfield.

Shane Sutherland gave Elgin City the lead in the 29th minute the first half but Omar Kader equalised for the Lichties in the 44th minute of the first half after Bobby Linn curled in a cross.

Bobby Linn was denied giving Arbroath the lead in first half injury time after a fantastic save by Tom McHale who saved Linn’s 20 yard free kick.

Both sides had chances a plenty in the second half but as the game went on Arbroath’s Ricky Little suffered a bloody nose with Elgin City’s Darryl McHardy suffering with a suspected dislocated wrist.

As the game ran deep into injury time and a penalty shoot out looking like a cross from Omar Kader found Steven Doris who hit the ball into the net to give Arbroath the perfect start.

Betfred Cup – Group C – Game 1 – Season 2019 / 2020

Saturday 13th July 2019, Gayfield Park, Arbroath, 3.00pm kick off

Arbroath return to competitive action today as we welcome Elgin City to Gayfield.

The Ladbrokes League 2 side are full of familiar faces with former striker Kane Hester and assistant Manager Keith Gibson who won the 3rd Division with the Lichties.

The sides met twice last season, once in this same fixture then in the Irn-Bru Cup where the Lichties claimed victory via a penalty shoot out.

Elgin City have strengthened over the summer with the signings of Andy McDonald (Stranraer), Euan Spark (Brechin City), Russell Dingwall (Ross County), Rory MacEwan (Stirling University), Conor O’Keefe (Stranraer) and returning striker Shane Sutherland from Peterhead.

Arbroath look to be without Scott Stewart and Luke Donnelly who are both nursing knocks and with no trialists allowed to play in the Betfred Cup it will be another tough start for both sides.

We hope you will get right behind the team from the start and C’mon the Lichties!

Betfred Group C Fixture Details

Betfred Group C Fixture Details

Competitive football returns to Gayfield on Saturday as we welcome Elgin City for the first game in this season’s Betfred Cup.

Along with Hibernian, Alloa Athletic, Stirling Albion and Elgin City we are part of Group C with 4 games to be played – 2 at home and 2 away.

Format
The group stage involves 40 clubs – the 38 SPFL teams at the end of 2018/19 who did not qualify for Europe plus Cove Rangers (Highland League champions) and East Kilbride (Lowland League champions), drawn into eight groups of five – split into four north groups and four south groups. Each group contains one seeded club, one second seed and three unseeded clubs.

Group matches
Clubs are awarded the usual three points for a win but all drawn games in the group stage go straight to penalties – the shoot-out winners receive a bonus point. ie three points for a win, two points for a shoot-out win and one point for losing on penalties.

If clubs are level on points at the end of the group stage the criteria for separating them is 1) goal difference, 2) goals scored, 3) away goals scored, 4) matches won, 5) away matches won, 6) drawing of lots.

Knock-out rounds
The eight group winners and four best runners-up progress to the second round, where they are joined by the four clubs competing in Europe – Celtic, Rangers, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen.

The seeded teams in the last 16 are the four European clubs and the four group winners with the best records.

The tournament reverts to a traditional knock-out format from the second round onwards, with ties decided by extra time and penalties if the scores are level after 90 minutes.

Admission prices have been agreed by all 5 clubs and are set as follows.

Montrose 3 – 2 Arbroath

Montrose 3 – 2 Arbroath

Arbroath suffered their first pre-season defeat tonight at Links Park in a fiery Angus Derby.

Arbroath Manager Dick Campbell made several changes from Sunday with Gaston in goal, then from Right to left, Brian, Wilson, Thomson and Hamilton in defence then Kader, Whatley, Gold and Linn in midfield with McKenna and Swankie up front.

Scott Stewart and Luke Donnelly watched on from the stands as they both nursed knocks.

Montrose seemed up for the game from the first kick and Andrew Steeves opened the scoring in the 27th minute heading in a cross from Sean Dillion. Arbroath almost equalised straight away with Allan Fleming denying Michael McKenna but Montrose added their second in the 32nd minute when Josh Skelly’s mishit shot fell to Graham Webster who couldn’t miss at the back post.

Arbroath introduced Thomas O’Brien, Greig Spence, Steven Doris and trialist James Murphy at the break but Montrose substitute Lewis Milne made it 3-0 in the 66th minute as Montrose looked to have secured the win.

Trialists Jamie McKenzie and Gavin Ritchie came on for Omar Kader and Gavin Swankie in the 67th minute.

Spence and Doris soon began to really harass the Montrose defence and Arbroath pulled a goal back in the 78th minute when Colin Hamilton nodded in a Bobby Linn cross.

A minute later and Arbroath pulled another goal back, this time it was Gavin Ritchie who hit a low drive from 18 yards which sailed past Fleming for a frantic last 11 minutes.

The tackles had been flying in all throughout the game and they seemed to intensify in the final 10 minutes.

Montrose striker Russel McLean and James Murphy suffered a nasty clash of heads with Murphy having to get heavily bandaged with McLean forced off.

There was no more goals as the Lichties went down to their first defeat of the pre-season.

The real stuff starts on Saturday as we welcome Elgin City to Gayfield in our first Betfred Cup game.

C’mon the Lichties

There is the chance for the candidate to put their own stamp of identity on how things are presented and we appreciate those those who think out of the box and have their own ideas to apply.
 
We fully appreciate that we are looking for someone who is a highly skilled individual and who can take on the position as a volunteer.
 
This is a big ask in any walk of life but as a part-time football club we wouldn’t be where we are without our volunteers as part of our football team.
 
We have been very fortunate in the past with Neil and our previous videographers but if you are passionate about football and this appeals we would love to hear from you.
 
Please send a brief introduction, an example of your work (Youtube, Vimeo links) and your contact details to arbroathfc@outlook.com.
 
Thank you

Betfred Group C Fixture Details

Betfred Group C Fixture Details

Competitive football returns to Gayfield on Saturday as we welcome Elgin City for the first game in this season’s Betfred Cup.

Along with Hibernian, Alloa Athletic, Stirling Albion and Elgin City we are part of Group C with 4 games to be played – 2 at home and 2 away.

Format
The group stage involves 40 clubs – the 38 SPFL teams at the end of 2018/19 who did not qualify for Europe plus Cove Rangers (Highland League champions) and East Kilbride (Lowland League champions), drawn into eight groups of five – split into four north groups and four south groups. Each group contains one seeded club, one second seed and three unseeded clubs.

Group matches
Clubs are awarded the usual three points for a win but all drawn games in the group stage go straight to penalties – the shoot-out winners receive a bonus point. ie three points for a win, two points for a shoot-out win and one point for losing on penalties.

If clubs are level on points at the end of the group stage the criteria for separating them is 1) goal difference, 2) goals scored, 3) away goals scored, 4) matches won, 5) away matches won, 6) drawing of lots.

Knock-out rounds
The eight group winners and four best runners-up progress to the second round, where they are joined by the four clubs competing in Europe – Celtic, Rangers, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen.

The seeded teams in the last 16 are the four European clubs and the four group winners with the best records.

The tournament reverts to a traditional knock-out format from the second round onwards, with ties decided by extra time and penalties if the scores are level after 90 minutes.

Admission prices have been agreed by all 5 clubs and are set as follows.
