Angus Nairn

It is with deep regret that we pass on the sad news that devoted Lichtie Angus Nairn has passed away.

Everyone associated with Arbroath FC would like to pass on their deepest sympathies and regards to Angus's family and friends and our thoughts are with them at this terribly sad time.

One of Angus's closest friends, Dave Ramsay has written this wonderful tribute.

As a lad of five years old, Angus was inducted to Gayfield Stadium, where for the next 77 years he devoted his loyalty to his “Lichties” and latterly his star player, Ricky Little.

Gladly, Angus was able to attend all three pre – season friendlies, and his last attendance was at the Bolton Wanderer’s game last Tuesday.

Sadly, Angus passed away peacefully and at home with his family on Wednesday, and today at Gayfield where we beat Montrose 4 – 0, we kept his seat vacant, and an AFC football scarf tied to the barrier to his memory.

Many supporters today, came and paid their respects to Angus, to Stewart, Charlie and myself, his close football pals.

On Wednesday this coming week, the day of his funeral, AFC have decided to fly the AFC flag at half – mast as a mark of loyalty and respect for the family, and the funeral cortege will drive past Gayfield and the flag, as Angus passes Gayfield for his very last time.

A silver Quaich will soon be donated to AFC as “The Angus Nairn Memorial Trophy” a trophy to be presented annually, for “The best newcomer to the Team” from the best, loyal, long – serving “Lichtie.”

This decision will be that of the Manager and Directors, and will serve to keep the memory of Angus Nairn alive, for many, many years to come.

Charlie Wood his friend, is also going to sponsor a match day football in August, in memory of Angus.

Angus is pictured at his last game at Gayfield in fantastic spirits at the match against Bolton Wanderers with Arbroath Chairman Mike Caird, dear friend Dave Ramsay and Facilities and Kit Manager Louise Walker. A huge smile and raising his glass to us all!

Two days later at the end of season dinner for the Arbroath Chest Heart and Stoke Association at the Meadowbank inn, Angus has received a letter from the Head Office CHS Scotland, commending him on the work he has done for the Thursday Club.

Rest in Peace Angus. You are in our thoughts.

Happy (Belated) Birthday to Ricky Gomes!

Everyone at Arbroath FC would like to wish Goalkeeper Ricky Gomes a very Happy (belated) Birthday!

( I got my dates wrong and thought it was Ricky's Birthday tomorrow, but he actually turned 24 on Wednesday! )

It has no doubt been a rollercoaster of a week for Ricky after he suffered a really sore and nasty mouth injury against Alloa Athletic on Tuesday but went on to be the hero as he saved two penalties clinching the bonus point for the Lichties!

It's Ricky's second season at Gayfield and we would like everyone to wish him a very Happy Birthday!

We hope he gets to spend some time with his loved ones this weekend.

Happy Birthday Ricky!

Arbroath 4 - 0 Montrose

Arbroath thumped local rivals Montrose this afternoon at a soaking wet Gayfield to move into second in Group D in the Betfred Cup.

David Gold opened the scoring (pictured) in the 31st minute then a second half double from substitute Danny Denholm and a fourth by fellow substitute Steven Doris after good link up play from Kane Hester proved too much for Stewart Petrie's side.

More to come.......

BetFred Cup so far......(Part 2)

(Apologies for the table error last night) This is how the table actually looks.

It looks like it is going to be a closely fought contest in Group D with Ross County currently leading the table with 8 points and they know a win against the Lichties next Saturday at Gayfield will seal their place at the top of Group D

Hibernian must keep the pressure up on Ross County and must record victories over Alloa Athletic and the Lichties if they want to finish 2nd and hope the Lichties can snatch a point against County.

Only the group leaders guaranteed progression through to the final 16, with the 4 best runners up from the 8 groups also going through.

Here are the results and remaining fixtures for Group D

Saturday 15 July

Hibernian 4 - 0 Montrose
Ross County 2 - 0 Alloa Athletic

Tuesday 18 July

Alloa Athletic 1 - 1 Arbroath (Arbroath win 6-5 on penalties)
Montrose 0 - 6 Ross County

Arbroath vs Montrose - Match Preview

Betfred Cup - Group D - Match 2

Saturday 22nd July 2017, Gayfield Park, 3.00pm kick off

Arbroath welcome Angus Neighbours Montrose for our only scheduled Derby of the season as we play our second match in Group D of the BetFred Cup.

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell will again be tested by his close friend Stewart Petrie and his son Ross Campbell who is Assistant Manager at Links Park.

Montrose have already faced the two Premier League sides after facing a 4-0 defeat at Easter Road against Hibernian before Ross County hit them for 6 at Links Park on Tuesday night.

Montrose have been active in the transfer market over the summer and have brought in several new faces including Sean Dillion and Jamie Redman, although Redman suffered a broken jaw during pre-season and is expected to be out for a few weeks.

Players arriving at Links Park:
Danny Cavanagh (Broughty Athletic), Sean Dillon (Dundee United), Martyn Fotheringham (Forfar Athletic), Craig Johnston (Cowdenbeath), Connor McLaren (St. Johnstone), Jamie Redman (Peterhead) and Matty Allan (Dundee, loan made permanent),

Players departing Links Park;
Declan Milne (Buckie Thistle), Gregor Anderson, Iain Campbell, Chris Hegarty, Lloyd Hester, Callum MacDonald, Kyle McLeod, Kieran McWalter, Greg Pascazio, Adam Harwood (Carnoustie Panmure, loan made permanent), Cammy Ballantyne (Dundee United, end of loan), Matty Smith (Dundee United, end of loan), and Dylan Thomas (Aberdeen, end of loan)

Arbroath should welcome new signing David Hutton into the squad and it is hoped Ricky Gomes will be okay to play after taking a heavy knock to his mouth during Tuesday’s match at Alloa.

This will be the Lichties 6th game in 3 weeks as their fitness is pushed in preparation before the start of League One.

Arbroath vs Montrose - Match Preview

Betfred Cup - Group D - Match 2 

Saturday 22nd July 2017, Gayfield Park, 3.00pm kick off

Arbroath welcome Angus Neighbours Montrose for our only scheduled Derby of the season as we play our second match in Group D of the BetFred Cup.

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell will again be tested by his close friend Stewart Petrie and his son Ross Campbell who is Assistant Manager at Links Park.

Montrose have already faced the two Premier League sides after facing a 4-0 defeat at Easter Road against Hibernian before Ross County hit them for 6 at Links Park on Tuesday night.

Montrose have been active in the transfer market over the summer and have brought in several new faces including Sean Dillion and Jamie Redman, although Redman suffered a broken jaw during pre-season and is expected to be out for a few weeks.

Players arriving at Links Park: 
Danny Cavanagh (Broughty Athletic), Sean Dillon (Dundee United), Martyn Fotheringham (Forfar Athletic), Craig Johnston (Cowdenbeath), Connor McLaren (St. Johnstone), Jamie Redman (Peterhead) and Matty Allan (Dundee, loan made permanent),

Players departing Links Park; 
Declan Milne (Buckie Thistle), Gregor Anderson, Iain Campbell, Chris Hegarty, Lloyd Hester, Callum MacDonald, Kyle McLeod, Kieran McWalter, Greg Pascazio, Adam Harwood (Carnoustie Panmure, loan made permanent), Cammy Ballantyne (Dundee United, end of loan), Matty Smith (Dundee United, end of loan), and Dylan Thomas (Aberdeen, end of loan)

Arbroath should welcome new signing David Hutton into the squad and it is hoped Ricky Gomes will be okay to play after taking a heavy knock to his mouth during Tuesday’s match at Alloa.

This will be the Lichties 6th game in 3 weeks as their fitness is pushed in preparation before the start of League One.

New Signing - David Hutton

Arbroath FC are delighted to announce the signing of Goalkeeper David Hutton.

The 32 year old keeper moves to Gayfield having spent the last two seasons at East End Park with Dunfermline Athletic and was in goal when we played our Betfred Cup tie there last season.

David started his career with Aberdeen, before a short spell with Junior side Petershill in his native Glasgow. A move to Clyde followed where he made just under 100 appearances.

In the 2006-2007 season when Clyde were in the Scottish First Division (Now Championship) he kept 11 clean sheets as Clyde finished with the best defensive record in the league.

A move to Queen of the South followed in 2009 after Clyde were hit with financial problems and David made over 50 appearances at Palmerston before seasons at Hamilton Academical and Greenock Morton.

From 2013 to 2015 David was at Ayr United making over 70 appearances before Allan Johnston snapped him up for Dunfermline Athletic.

Now David starts a new chapter in his footballing career as he moves to Gayfield.

Welcome to Arbroath!

Congratulations go to Blair Yule who opened his Arbroath account in style last night when he scored in the 16th minute against Alloa Athletic.

Omar Kader and David Gold combined on the wing before Gold swept in a beautiful cross which Yule headed into the back of the net!

Here is to the first of many goals to come!

Alloa Athletic 1 - 1 Arbroath
(Arbroath win 6-5 on penalties)

Arbroath won a penalty shoot out tonight against Alloa Athletic to secure 2 points in Betfred Group D.

Arbroath had led for much of the game thanks to a brilliant Blair Yule header in the 16th minute after he connected to a David Gold cross.

However the Lichties seemed to tire in the second half and Alloa equalised in the 89th minute through Frank McKeown.

This forced the game into a penalty shoot out for a bonus point.

Doris, Whatley, Yule, Hester, Little and Gold scored from the spot with Malin hitting the bar and Ricky Gomes saving from Renton and Grant to give the Lichties 2 points

More to come….

Alloa Athletic vs Arbroath – Match Preview

Betfred Cup - Group D - Game 1 - Season 2017 / 2018

Tuesday 18th July 2017, Indodrill Stadium, 7.45pm kick off

The Lichties travel down to Alloa tonight as they play their first competitive match of the new season against Jim Goodwin’s Alloa Athletic.

This is the first game in Group D for Arbroath but Alloa opened up their campaign with a 2-0 defeat away to Ross County on Saturday. Unfortunately for the Wasps summer signing Craig Malcolm was forced off injured in Dingwall and looks to miss out tonight’s match.

It is the first time the two sides have met since the Round 1 of the Petrofac Cup on the 26th July 2014 when then Championship side Alloa won 4-1 with Simon Murray scoring a last minute consolation goal.

Arbroath - Crawford, Travis, Johnstone, Fisher, Little, Nicoll (Whatley 57), Linn, Hunter (McWalter 87), McManus, Murray, McBride (Buchan 57) - Subs not used - Scott, Lindsay, Morrison.

There are only 3 survivors of that Arbroath team with Ricky Little, Bobby Linn and Mark Whatley still at Gayfield. On that afternoon a certain Ryan McCord was pulling the strings in midfield for Alloa.

Alongside Ryan McCord there are 3 other Lichties who have played for Alloa - Bryan Prunty, Omar Kader and Colin Hamilton with Thomas Grant and Alan Cook former Lichties now in the Alloa Camp.

Alloa Athletic vs Arbroath - Head to Head.

You have to go back to the 2012 / 2013 season when both clubs were in the same league.

Arbroath 0 - 1 Alloa Athletic - 4th May 2013 - Scottish League One
Goals - S. Hynd 89

Arbroath 1 - 2 Alloa Athletic - 27th February 2013 - Scottish League One
Goals - Malcolm 64 - McCord 19, K. Cawley 89

Alloa Athletic 0 - 1 Arbroath - 23rd February 2013 - Scottish League One
Goal - Holmes 41

Alloa Athletic 2 - 3 Arbroath - 25th August 2012 - Scottish League One-
Goals - K. Cawley 18, 32 - Holmes 45, Currie 54, Travis 63

Alloa have made many changes during the summer like most clubs;

Arriving - Alan Cook (Stenhousemuir), Garry Fleming (Dumbarton), Thomas Grant (Stenhousemuir), Craig Malcolm (Stranraer), Daryll Meggatt (Ayr United), Kris Renton (Cowdenbeath)

Departing - Graeme Holmes (Albion Rovers), Jordan Kirkpatrick (St. Mirren),
Jamie Longworth (Stenhousemuir), Jason Marr (Albion Rovers), Stefan McCluskey (Pollok), Greig Spence (Raith Rovers), Calum Waters (Kilmarnock), Lewis Wilson (Clyde), Dylan Mackin (Motherwell, end of loan), Scott Hynd

Suspensions;

Neither team have any players suspended.

Officials;

The Referee will be Grant Irvine and he will be assisted by Graeme Leslie and David Ryan Kennedy.

Admission;

Admission Prices at Indodrill Stadium are as follows;

Adults - £16

OAP (65 and over) - £8

Youths (under 16) - £4

Travel;

The address for the Indodrill Stadium is Clackmannan Roasd, Alloa, FK10 1RY

We appreciate it is a midweek game but we are always very grateful for all the Lichties who follow and support the Lichties.
