Well its Cup final time again. Although I won't be there due to it being a week later than normal and having a pre booked holiday please let's not forget this is a very special day. For our players to get the chance to play in the National Stadium is very special, for kids to get the chance to see that should also be very special. Before I left I couldn’t help but feel folk were saying "again" so I am not bothering this year or I have to buy the tickets on line so "b---r it." . Please don’t be one of them. It's not " hell again it's not special" it's the opposite. Its wow what an achievement in reaching it for the 8th time in the last 11 seasons. That in itself is special--a cup final is special so we now have to make it memorable. That’s the difference the memorable ones--the time you were there, who you were with, the lasting impression it made on kids.
It could be the double , what an achievement that would be. How many clubs have done that before , not many. Its Stirling's first time so that shows it's not easy to get there they will be there in numbers . WE CAN NEVER TAKE SUCCESS FOR GRANTED AS IT ELUDES MOST OF US
One last thing with all the changes Super 6 etc it might also be the last time we ever get this opportunity SO PLEASE don’t miss it. I thought about flying back but that would have been too selfish. For once it just wasn’t the right thing to do and after some recent events including the sudden death of Ian Lowrie (Big Low) it makes you think about getting everything in perspective.
If you are having problems with the online tickets give Christine in the office a call--we get 50% of the cost so you are supporting the club
please support the boys--create a memorable day--I will be doing my nut for half a day but if you turn out in numbers to encourage the players I might just be able to raise a glass from afar for a great Saturday night
