Dumbarton vs Arbroath - Match Preview

Match Day 03 - Ladbrokes League 1 - Season 2018 / 2019

Saturday 18th August 2018, C&G Systems Stadium, Dumbarton - 3.00pm kick off

Our challenging week continues fresh from a trip to Elgin with tomorrow’s game down at Dumbarton.

It has only been a few months since we narrowly missed out on getting into the Championship Final play-off as we returned to the rebranded C&G Systems Stadium.

It has been a busy summer at Dumbarton with 19 departures and 11 arrivals meaning a busy summer for Manager Stephen Aitken.

In fact only 6 players remain from the team the Dumbarton side that came up against the Lichties in those play-offs so Dick Campbell’s side will be up against a brand new team.

It will be another tough encounter against the side which many have tipped to win League One, but you can be assured we will be up for the challenge.

Dumbarton Team News

www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/ report that Cammy Ballantyne will miss out with a thigh injury with also Andy Little and Ross Perry also miss tomorrow’s match.

This time we would like to thank local business Moir Construction LTD

Gary Moir and Moir Construction Ltd are one of our very good friends and sponsors. Gary has helped with our very successful Lichtie Bonus Ball and Moir Construction have played a pivotal role in the renovations at Gayfield this summer.

The Club Secretary’s office has been completely overhauled with the wall being stripped back and a partitioning wall which formed a cupboard also being removed, leaving a large bright open space which has been refitted to the highest standard. Gary Callon and Louise Walker are both very happy at their new office space.

Moir Construction also carried out very similar work in Dick Campbell’s Managers Office which again was carried out to a very high standard.

On top of the interior works, Moir Construction helped with the repair of the boundary wall at Gayfield.

Thank You!

Everyone at the club would like to thank the Lichties who made the trip up to Elgin last night. There were a few more supporters there including Tim F. and Gavin S. who were in different parts of the ground.

A great effort on a Wednesday evening. We hope everyone made it home safely and thanks again for your continued support!

C'mon the Lichties!

GoPro Penalties

Full coverage from behind the goal of last night's penalty shoot out success.

Two fantastic saves from Darren Hill which were pivotal in putting us through to round 2.

(Apologies as there is a small section of clattering noises and blurry footage after Ryan Wallace's penalty which was the first of the evening as we failed to guess which end the penalties were going to be as we raced round from the half way line)

C'mon the Lichties!

GoPro Highlights - Hester is going to get you!

Elgin City gave a debut last night to new goalkeeper Tom McHale who had joined them from Truro City.

McHale thought he had given Kane Hester the slip with a cheeky cut back but Kane got up before turning on the after burners to chase down and tackle McHale.

As the Elgin City defenders ran back in, Danny Denholm came close as his strike hit the bar.

I was hoping for a weekend draw to another country (not 100% sure but is one of the rules if you are drawn away to the Welsh/English/Irish clubs it has to be played at the weekend?) as could have been like a European trip for the Red Lichties, but all-in-all a decent draw so hopefully get the Euro trip in the next round 36-0

Reason i say that is i think to clubs from the other countries are all full-time and it seemed unfair to ask part-times clubs to travel during the week?

🏆 The IRN-BRU Cup Second Round Draw will take place on Thursday 16th August! Watch it LIVE from 1pm on the SPFL Facebook page - set a reminder by clicking below! 👇

Elgin City 1 - 1 Arbroath (Arbroath win 7-6 on penalties)

Arbroath are through to the 2nd round of the Irn-Bru Cup after claiming victory in a penalty shoot out after the game finished 1-1.

Arbroath made several changes with Darren Hill, Jason Thomson, Finn Graham, Ryan McCord, Danny Denholm and Kane Hester all starting.

Arbroath had the better first half with Kane Hester almost scoring with a nice lob before Hester also robbed the keeper of the ball with Danny Denholm hitting the post in the follow up.

Thomas O’Brien headed in a Danny Denholm corner in the 57th minute but Elgin slowly clawed their way back in and equalised in the 83rd minute through Daryl McHardy.

The game was poised for a dramatic winner but nether team could grab a winning goal.

Wallace - scored 0-1

Elgin City 1 - 1 Arbroath (Arbroath win 7-6 on penalties) 

Arbroath are through to the 2nd round of the Irn-Bru Cup after claiming victory in a penalty shoot out after the game finished 1-1.

Arbroath made several changes with Darren Hill, Jason Thomson, Finn Graham, Ryan McCord, Danny Denholm and Kane Hester all starting.

Arbroath had the better first half with Kane Hester almost scoring with a nice lob before Hester also robbed the keeper of the ball with Danny Denholm hitting the post in the follow up.

Thomas O’Brien headed in a Danny Denholm corner in the 57th minute but Elgin slowly clawed their way back in and equalised in the 83rd minute through Daryl McHardy.

Elgin City vs Arbroath - Match Preview

Irn-Bru Cup - Round 1 - Season 2018 / 2019

Wednesday 15th August 2018, Borough Briggs, Elgin, 7.45pm kick off

Arbroath make the long trip north this afternoon as they take on Elgin City at Borough Briggs in the first round of the Irn-Bru Cup.

The teams only recently played one another in the Betfred Cup with the Lichties coming out on top in that match thanks to goals from Colin Hamilton and Thomas O’Brien.

Since that match was played Elgin have signed defender James McGowan from Thame United and goalkeeper Thomas McHale from Truro United.

Arbroath are expected to make changes with those players who have been on the bench coming into the starting line up.

Defender Ricky Little misses out due to a one-match suspension which carried over from last season.

It should be another tough match, but we are looking forward to the game.

Format;

If the game is tied after 90 minutes it will go straight to a penalty shoot out to determine who proceeds into the 2nd round.

Last night Dundee U20s, Peterhead, Dunfermline Athletic, Ross County, East Fife, Raith Rovers, Alloa Athletic, Formartine United, St Mirren U20s, Queen of the South, Falkirk, Queen’s Park, Hamilton Academical U20s, Motherwell U20s, Annan Athletic, Edinburgh City, Partick Thistle, Dumbarton and Airdrieonians all progressed into the 2nd round.

Tonight, East Kilbride take on the Spartans, Cove Rangers take on Montrose, Dundee United take on St Johnstone U20s, whilst Livingston U20s and Forfar Athletic require a replay after floodlight failure.

Also entering at the 2nd round stage are Teams from Wales (The New Saints and Connah's Quay Nomads), Northern Ireland (Crusaders and Coleraine), England (Sutton United and Boreham Wood) and the Republic of Ireland (Bohemians and Sligo Rovers)

Suspensions;

Ricky Little serves a one-match suspension for Arbroath for a red card picked up last season.

Officials;

Referee - Scott Lambie
Assistant Referee 1 - Chris Phillips
Assistant Referee 2 - Gordon Seago

Admission Prices

£12 - Adults
£6 - Concessions
£2 Extra to access the main stand

We know that it is a very long trip for a midweek game, but we are always grateful to any fans who can make it along.

C'mon the Lichties!

Sandy Tapley

Everyone at Arbroath Football Club has been left saddened with the news that Lichtie season ticket and share holder Sandy Tapley sadly passed away yesterday morning.

Sandy first started going to Gayfield around 1970 when he and his wife Eileen moved from Friockheim into Arbroath.

Sandy’s devotion to the Lichties meant he even snuck out to watch Arbroath whilst Eileen was still in hospital after giving birth to their daughter, Arlene.

His affection for the Lichties has rubbed off with both Arlene’s teenage sons also now owning season tickets for Gayfield.

Even when Sandy wasn’t feeling too well and unable to make it down to Gayfield he would still make sure he watched the 36nilTV Highlights on a tablet given to him and set up by his family.

This past weekend was very hard for Sandy, but he still managed to tell his beloved family that his team had won 3-1!

Our club is nothing without our loyal supporters, both young and old and we are sad to lose another Lichtie family member.

We hope that same family will gather round Sandy's family.

A much loved teacher at Warddykes in Arbroath, he influenced the lives of so many young people. His passion for football was evident even in his career as he guided Warddykes to victories in the Watters Cup!

All our thoughts are with Sandy’s wife Eileen, daughter’s Karen and Arlene and the rest of Sandy’s family and friends.

Arlene's sons are going to way wear maroon ties to the funeral in honour of Sandy who loved maroon.

Sandy’s funeral is planned for Thursday 23rd August at 11.30am

Rest in Peace Sandy

If this is the Mr Tapley from warddykes primary I got the belt from him. Was a strict but fair man but you were always wary. All I can say is R.I.P Mr Tapley you were one hell of a man. I mean that as a term of endearment.

John Ritchie

We sadly lost our friend and coach John Ritchie over the summer. John was a true gentleman and loved by so many.

We paid tribute to JR with a minute's applause on Saturday with our first home league game of the season.

We know that John has played a huge part in the career’s of so many players and influenced so many teams and we were very proud that he became part of the Arbroath Family.

Rest in Peace JR x
