Bute First Team had a tough time during the 2014 season, the
team was short in experience due to a number of senior players not being available for various reasons and we struggled
in the National League being relegated to South Division 1. We did however retain a core of dedicated team members who were
augmented by a number of young players being introduced to this level perhaps before we would have hoped. These youngsters
however did not let us down and we look forward to their continued development next season with hopefully several more
experienced players returning to the fold.
The Second Team management and the again mainly young players team deserve great praise for finishing a creditable
fourth in South Division 2, well done, this bodes well for the future of our club.
More encouraging was the performances of our under 14, P7
and P5 teams who all improved as the season progressed and they all won trophies to bring back to Bute, these are the
future of our club and we should all lend them our full support, especially on match days.
Many thanks again to Colin Lockhart of Ardbeg Mini Market for his generous cash donation
and continued support of our youth section, it makes a big difference to the boys.
The membership fee of £40 for senior players is now due and can be paid to any committee member. It takes
a great deal of money to run our club and the subscription fees are much needed, we will accept payment in instalments.
The youth and primary school training has now returned to the School Campus.
To all Members
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute to the success of our club, we are a community club and each
and every one of us has a part to play, we must pull together and work for the good of the club as a whole. A successful
team on the park depends on the hard work and efforts of all club members. We need to keep our clubhouse and changing
facilities in good condition to help provide funds for its upkeep, it costs a lot of money to run a club such as ours and
we need to look at other sources of income, all ideas are welcome.
We would thank our sponsors for their continued and valuable support, we really do appreciate them and welcome their
We also look forward
once again to welcoming those who attend on match days to provide support to our teams, it gives the players a boost
and makes them give that bit more effort, please continue to come along, bring family and friends and stay for a while
after the games to enjoy a drink or two in the bar.
We would ask once again for your support by buying tickets for our weekly lotto draw so efficiently
managed by Tommy Howat, this provides valuable funds for the club as well as offering good prize money to those who participate.
