An away day with the Pansies taking the short trip from the Theatre of Dreams Glenesk Park to take on neighbours Lochee Harp who are playing their home matches in Dundee’s very own La Bombonera Downfield Park while the new Beechwood Park is being built. Only goal difference separates the two sides going into this fixture but Violet have been in good form away from … Continue reading Away Days

A couple of old shots today, really old shots. These were done on a Sony Ericsson K810i away back in the day, just found the images on an old memory stick. The photographs are of the John Greig statue outside Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow.
