Crunch Day

A massive game at Glenesk Park, Dundee yesterday with Dundee Violet needing a victory to avoid relegation and Glenrothes needing a win to secure a play off place.
It ended with a 3-1 victory to the home side only their 3rd home win of the season.

I did fire off just short of 200 photos yesterday so I might add to this post over the next few days.

Here’s some more from yesterday.

  1. Never been a big Junior Football fan but when I think of some of the awful stuff I’ve paid a lot of money to watch in the senior game I might give it a try one of these days!

    1. 5 quid entry, half time pints, full time pints, standing only and dogs! When do you ever see a dog at the football? Never there was at least three there yesterday great stuff.

      Big travelling crowd from darkest Fife yesterday and thanks to the weather probably the biggest crowd I’ve seen at Glenesk.
