Scotland Writers 2 – 4 Street Soccer Scotland

We lost 4-2 to a quality Street Soccer Scotland team with good young players. Our goals from Mackie and classy debutant David Mackay. Personally, I still can’t believe my shot from the edge of the box hit the inside of the post and didn’t go in. Onwards!

HotScots 3 – 6 Scotland Writers

Absolutely delighted to win our first game of 2018, 6-3 against HotScots. Goals from Simm (3), Mackay (2) and Mackie. I suppose we need to make Alistair man of the match, what with scoring a hat trick and that, but really strong team performance across the pitch and off the bench.

St Johnstone Select 8 – 2 Scotland Writers

Sad to report we lost our last game of the year against a team that, it turned out, contained a few professionals. Goals from Scott and Mackie. Onwards!

Gegen den Ball


Here’s a lovely thing – our pals from the Austrian Writers FC have put together a collection of writing from their players and all their opponents, including us! Stories from gaffer Doug Johnstone and poems from midfield maestro Billy Letford in English and German. Nice!

National Museums of Scotland 1 -2 Scotland Writers

Delighted to report a hard fought 2-1 win over the National Museum of Scotland today. A brace of goals from Jamie Crawford. That’s a five-game winning streak this year! Also our first ever red card for McIntosh for foul and abusive language. The fucking doss cunt. Also, we were too knackered afterwards to remember to get a picture with the other team – sorry guys!

Hello folks! This wasn’t strictly one of our full games, but a number of our squad took part in this annual five-a-side shindig at the Bloody Scotland festival in Stirling. Scotland ran out 6-3 winners, goals from Mackay(3), Scott, Johnstone, Enger. Here’s a brief match report in The Sun, where you can see footage of Johnstone nutmegging his mate Luca Veste in goals for England. Good times!
