FALKIRK 3-2 AYR UNITED

A second half Aidan Keena hattrick sealed the day for Falkirk as they ran out 3-2 winners in the fourth pre-season friendly of the 2020/21 season. New signing Akeel Francis almost opened his account for the club as he did well to climb high over his man and got his header away, but it was…

PEDRO MOUTINHO – IN DEPTH INTERVIEW

Fans favourite Pedro Moutinho went into detail about his time with The Bairns across three spells with the club. The Portuguese native came to Falkirk after two years at FC Penafiel, a massive change for the player who knew very little about the Scottish game at the time. “At the time I was 23 or…

RAITH ROVERS 2-6 FALKIRK

Falkirk put six past Raith Rovers in a terrific performance as The Bairns continue their pre-season. The first Falkirk chance came early as Callumn Morrison rounded the keeper, but good tracking back on the line from the Raith defence kept it out. The home team followed this up with a few good chances of their…

THROWBACK THURSDAY

HITTING THE OLD FIRM FOR SIX (AND FIVE) Falkirk successes against The Old Firm are pretty rare, and older fans will remember some awful hammerings.

On the occasions when Falkirk…

THROWBACK THURSDAY

STOP THE GAME- I WANT TO GO HOME Two of the weirdest games I have ever seen took place in 1957 and in 1962. In one, Falkirk were 9-1 ahead at the break, in the other they were losing 9-0 at half-time. Such an interval score seems impossible to comprehend, but I can assure you…

THROWBACK THURSDAY

BOMB SITE BROCKVILLE February 23rd, 1953 might well have gone down in Football History as a day of disaster, as Brockville Park was nearly added to the list of grounds where crowds were exposed to serious danger and lives were at risk.
