Alloa Athletic vs Arbroath – Match Preview

Betfred Cup – Group A – Game 2 – Season 2018 / 2019

Tuesday 17th July 2018, Indodrill Stadium, 7.45pm kick off

We are no strangers to the Wasps having played them 5 times last season, including in this very fixture almost a year to the day, 16th July 2018.

On that evening, a Blair Yule header gave the Lichties the lead but a Frank McKeown last minute goal forced the game into another penalty shoot-out.

Our hero was keeper Ricky Gomes who saved from Kris Renton and Thomas Grant despite suffering a bad knock to the face earlier in the game.

Steven Doris, Mark Whatley, Blair Yule, Kane Hester, Ricky Little and David Gold all scored with Gavin Malin hitting the bar as we triumphed 6-5 on penalties.

Alloa have made many changes during the summer like most clubs as they look forward to their return to the Championship.

Lewis Toshney

Arbroath FC are very happy to announce the signing of Lewis Toshney on loan from Dundee United until January.

Lewis (26) is very versatile footballer and can play in defence or midfield.  A product of the Celtic Youth System, Lewis brings a wealth of experience to Gayfield.  Having also played for for Ross County, Cowdenbeath and Raith Rovers as well as loan spells at Kilmarnock and Dundee.  In addition Lewis has also represented Scotland at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 21 level. 

Lewis joined Dundee United from Raith Rovers and in fact it was against Arbroath in the Betfred Cup where Lewis made his Dundee United debut at Gayfield in July 2016.   It was to be a successful debut season at Tannadice for Lewis, however an injury and subsequent surgery ruled him out for the majority of the 2017 / 2018 season.  

As Lewis makes his welcome return we are delighted he will be doing so at Gayfield as we look to continue our great start in the Betfred Cup.

Lewis is expected to be available for tomorrow night’s match against Alloa Athletic.

Welcome to Gayfield!

If you would like to sponsor Lewis for the new season please call 07775-779440 or email afc@strathmoreeventservices.co.uk

C’mon the Lichties!

Thank you to the fans!

Thank you!

We had another fantastic travelling support yesterday!

Everyone at Arbroath FC is incredibly thankful for all of those who turned up in such great numbers to cheer on the team.

The support was the first topic that Assistant Manager Ian Campbell mentioned as he spoke to the media after the match calling out how “Tremendous” the fans were.

The noise and singing really is appreciated by everyone and we hope you enjoyed your afternoon.

Here are a few photographs from full time – Remember to tag your friends.

C’mon the Lichties!

Dundee United 1 – 1 Arbroath – (Arbroath win 5-3 on penalties)

Well the 2018 / 2019 season got off to a brilliant start today at Tannadice as Arbroath came from behind to snatch a 1-1 draw before grabbing the bonus point after winning 5-3 on penalties.

The game began in dramatic fashion after David Gold was brought down by Declan Glass with only 5 minutes played with referee Bobby Madden pointing to the spot. However uncharacteristically Ryan Wallace pulled his shot wide and Dundee United survived the early scare.

As the game settled down it was Arbroath who were looking more threatening with lots of the play coming down the wing below the large Arbroath support.

Michael McKenna had a shot blocked before Declan Glass had a shot saved by Darren Jamieson at the other end.

Dundee United’s Paul McMullan got into great space in the Arbroath box but fired his shot high over the bar.

Jason Thomson came close with a header from Arbroath’s third corner of the game before David Gold was really unfortunate with an overhead kick.

Thomas O”Brien was booked in the 39th minute for a foul on Nicky Clark.

Half time – Dundee United 0 – 0 Arbroath

United had their best spell of the entire match after half time as they started to put pressure on the Arbroath goal with Declan Glass and Fraser Aird both trying their luck.

Bobby Linn was booked in the 55th minute for a foul on Paul McMullan.

As the clocked ticked down it was Arbroath who were getting a second wind and Ryan Wallace won a free kick just outside of the Dundee United box. Bobby Linn stepped up but his shot just curled over the bar.

Arbroath made their first changes in the 70th minute with Kane Hester coming on for Gavin Swankie and Mark Whatley replacing David Gold.

Danny Denholm came on for Colin Hamilton in the 75th minute as Arbroath made their final change.

It was United who went ahead in the 77th minute as Nicky Clark struck from close range after latching onto a Fraser Aird cross.

The Arbroath heads didn’t drop and instead the team seem more determined. Kane Hester was desperately unlucky as he raced in and beat goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist to the ball. As both players lay on the floor Kane was just inches away from getting his foot to roll the ball into the empty net.

However just a minute later and Arbroath were awarded their second penalty of the game after Christopher Rabitsch fouled Jason Thomson.

Bobby Linn grabbed the ball and made no mistake from the spot to pull the Lichties level in the 82nd minute.

In fact Arbroath should have been awarded a third penalty before the full time whistle when Kane Hester was taken out in the 91st minute by keeper Siegrist.

Full time – Dundee United 1 – 1 Arbroath

A penalty shoot out then took place to see which side were awarded a bonus point. With the late goals and the drama of the shoot out it was like deja-vu back to our last Betfred Cup game against Dundee United at Gayfield.

Michael McKenna – Scored – bottom right
Stewart Murdoch – Scored – bottom left
Mark Whatley – Scored – bottom left
Fraser Aird – Scored – bottom left
Ryan Wallace – Scored – bottom left
Paul McMullan – Scored – bottom right
Ricky Little – Scored – Off the cross bar and in!
Logan Chalmers – SAVED – Brilliant save by Darren Jamieson
Bobby Linn – Scored – Bottom right.

A fantastic save by Darren Jamieson and great spirit shown by Ryan and Bobby to take another penalty.

A great team performance backed by a fantastic support!

Dundee United vs Arbroath – Match Preview

The Lichties return to competitive action tomorrow as they make the short trip down the A92 to Dundee to take on United at Tannadice in the opening game of the 2018 / 2019 season.

The two sides faced each other in the same competition at Gayfield at the start of the 2016 / 2017 season which resulted in a 1-1 draw, with both goals coming in the last 5 minutes.

However the Lichties lost out on the bonus point as Cammy Bell saved a Liam Callaghan penalty kick.

You have to go back a looooooooooooong time for the Lichties last game at Tannadice.

The last fixture was a Forfarshire Cup game on Saturday 30th July 1983 which United won 2-0 in front of a crowd of 3,339 inside Tannadice.

Dundee United; Hamish McAlpine, Richard Gough, Dave Narey, Paul Hegarty, John Holt, Maurice Malpas, Eamonn Bannon, Ralph Milne, Alex Taylor, Billy Kirkwood, Davie Dodds

Goals – Davie Dodds (86), Ralph Milne (87)

Arbroath; David Robertson, Stewart Forsyth, Tony Hill, Frank Kopel, David Young, Billy Gavine, Ian Harley, Hugh Hill, Billy Steele, Graham Shaw, Alan McKenzie

There has been a flurry of arrivals and departures over the summer at Tannadice as Csaba László rebuilds his squad.

One familiar face to Lichties will be defender Callum Booth who enjoyed a spell on loan at Gayfield back in 2010.

Tannadice Arrivals;

Matej Rakovan – Goalkeeper, Vyoscina Jihlava,
Benjamin Siegrist – Goalkeeper, Vaduz
Callum Booth, Defender – Partick Thistle,

There hasn’t been quite the same transfer activity over the summer at Gayfield as Dick and Ian Campbell have been able to keep the core of our team together who have been so successful over the last 2 seasons.

There will still be more additions to the squad but it is important we bring in the right type of player to enhance the squad.

New additions Darren Hill, Darren Jamieson and Jason Thomson have all enjoyed game time in pre-season and they will all be looking forward to tomorrow.

Betfred Cup Rules;

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.

The eight group winners go through with the four best runner-ups also progressing into the second round.

No Trialists are allowed in the Betfred Cup, only signed players.

Howdy y’all from sunny Texas.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Arbroath Football Club for the lovely send off. To Mike and all the board members, the team, the backroom staff, ground staff and the fans.

I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single minute of my 6 years at Gayfield. I leave with life long friendships and many happy memories I will treasure forever.

The club is destined to go onwards and upwards and I’m proud to say I’ve played a small part in that.

Good luck for this upcoming season. I will be watching from the sidelines(of Facebook.) There are exciting times ahead for the club.

I will miss each and everyone of you.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you and this is not a goodbye just a ‘see y’all later’

All the best.

Love

Julie and Olivia.

Shocking price of £17 when Dundee Utd only charged £12, not that I can make it but hopefully we have a good support to be the 12th man and win the game.

I’d hope Arbroath had raised concern just how much Alloa are taking the piss with the admission price here, seeing as most other clubs offer a reduced admission for league cup games.

Arbroath FC are very happy to announce the signing of Lewis Toshney on loan from Dundee United until January.

Lewis (26) is very versatile footballer and can play in defence or midfield. A product of the Celtic Youth System, Lewis brings a wealth of experience to Gayfield. Having also played for for Ross County, Cowdenbeath and Raith Rovers as well as loan spells at Kilmarnock and Dundee. In addition Lewis has also represented Scotland at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 21 level.

Lewis joined Dundee United from Raith Rovers and in fact it was against Arbroath in the Betfred Cup where Lewis made his Dundee United debut at Gayfield in July 2016. It was to be a successful debut season at Tannadice for Lewis, however an injury and subsequent surgery ruled him out for the majority of the 2017 / 2018 season.

As Lewis makes his welcome return we are delighted he will be doing so at Gayfield as we look to continue our great start in the Betfred Cup.

Lewis is expected to be available for tomorrow night's match against Alloa Athletic.

On that evening, a Blair Yule header gave the Lichties the lead but a Frank McKeown last minute goal forced the game into another penalty shoot-out.

Our hero was keeper Ricky Gomes who saved from Kris Renton and Thomas Grant despite suffering a bad knock to the face earlier in the game.

Steven Doris, Mark Whatley, Blair Yule, Kane Hester, Ricky Little and David Gold all scored with Gavin Malin hitting the bar as we triumphed 6-5 on penalties.

Alloa have made many changes during the summer like most clubs as they look forward to their return to the Championship.

Lewis Toshney

Arbroath FC are very happy to announce the signing of Lewis Toshney on loan from Dundee United until January.

Lewis (26) is very versatile footballer and can play in defence or midfield.  A product of the Celtic Youth System, Lewis brings a wealth of experience to Gayfield.  Having also played for for Ross County, Cowdenbeath and Raith Rovers as well as loan spells at Kilmarnock and Dundee.  In addition Lewis has also represented Scotland at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 21 level. 

Lewis joined Dundee United from Raith Rovers and in fact it was against Arbroath in the Betfred Cup where Lewis made his Dundee United debut at Gayfield in July 2016.   It was to be a successful debut season at Tannadice for Lewis, however an injury and subsequent surgery ruled him out for the majority of the 2017 / 2018 season.  

As Lewis makes his welcome return we are delighted he will be doing so at Gayfield as we look to continue our great start in the Betfred Cup.

Lewis is expected to be available for tomorrow night’s match against Alloa Athletic.

Welcome to Gayfield!

If you would like to sponsor Lewis for the new season please call 07775-779440 or email afc@strathmoreeventservices.co.uk

C’mon the Lichties!

The support was the first topic that Assistant Manager Ian Campbell mentioned as he spoke to the media after the match calling out how “Tremendous” the fans were.

The noise and singing really is appreciated by everyone and we hope you enjoyed your afternoon.

Here are a few photographs from full time – Remember to tag your friends.

Dundee United 1 – 1 Arbroath – (Arbroath win 5-3 on penalties)

Well the 2018 / 2019 season got off to a brilliant start today at Tannadice as Arbroath came from behind to snatch a 1-1 draw before grabbing the bonus point after winning 5-3 on penalties.

The game began in dramatic fashion after David Gold was brought down by Declan Glass with only 5 minutes played with referee Bobby Madden pointing to the spot. However uncharacteristically Ryan Wallace pulled his shot wide and Dundee United survived the early scare.

As the game settled down it was Arbroath who were looking more threatening with lots of the play coming down the wing below the large Arbroath support.

Michael McKenna had a shot blocked before Declan Glass had a shot saved by Darren Jamieson at the other end.

Dundee United’s Paul McMullan got into great space in the Arbroath box but fired his shot high over the bar.

Jason Thomson came close with a header from Arbroath’s third corner of the game before David Gold was really unfortunate with an overhead kick.

Thomas O”Brien was booked in the 39th minute for a foul on Nicky Clark.

Half time – Dundee United 0 – 0 Arbroath

United had their best spell of the entire match after half time as they started to put pressure on the Arbroath goal with Declan Glass and Fraser Aird both trying their luck.

Bobby Linn was booked in the 55th minute for a foul on Paul McMullan.

As the clocked ticked down it was Arbroath who were getting a second wind and Ryan Wallace won a free kick just outside of the Dundee United box. Bobby Linn stepped up but his shot just curled over the bar.

Arbroath made their first changes in the 70th minute with Kane Hester coming on for Gavin Swankie and Mark Whatley replacing David Gold.

Danny Denholm came on for Colin Hamilton in the 75th minute as Arbroath made their final change.

It was United who went ahead in the 77th minute as Nicky Clark struck from close range after latching onto a Fraser Aird cross.

The Arbroath heads didn’t drop and instead the team seem more determined. Kane Hester was desperately unlucky as he raced in and beat goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist to the ball. As both players lay on the floor Kane was just inches away from getting his foot to roll the ball into the empty net.

However just a minute later and Arbroath were awarded their second penalty of the game after Christopher Rabitsch fouled Jason Thomson.

Bobby Linn grabbed the ball and made no mistake from the spot to pull the Lichties level in the 82nd minute.

In fact Arbroath should have been awarded a third penalty before the full time whistle when Kane Hester was taken out in the 91st minute by keeper Siegrist.

Full time – Dundee United 1 – 1 Arbroath

A penalty shoot out then took place to see which side were awarded a bonus point. With the late goals and the drama of the shoot out it was like deja-vu back to our last Betfred Cup game against Dundee United at Gayfield.

Michael McKenna – Scored – bottom right
Stewart Murdoch – Scored – bottom left
Mark Whatley – Scored – bottom left

Ryan Wallace – Scored – bottom left
Paul McMullan – Scored – bottom right

However the Lichties lost out on the bonus point as Cammy Bell saved a Liam Callaghan penalty kick.

You have to go back a looooooooooooong time for the Lichties last game at Tannadice.

New additions Darren Hill, Darren Jamieson and Jason Thomson have all enjoyed game time in pre-season and they will all be looking forward to tomorrow.
