East Stirlingshire’s Last Man Standing Is Back

After a highly successful season last couple of seasons we are delighted to announce that the East Stirlingshire Committee will be continuing the Last Man Standing competitions this season to help raise funds for East Stirlingshire FC.

It will be a similar format to last year. £5 entry with the pot being split 50/50 between the winning pot and the club (i.e. 200 players means £250 to the winner(s) and £250 to the club).

Choose a different Scottish league team every week from the SPL to League 2, if they win you go through, lose or draw and you’re out!

We’ve made some slight adjustments to the rules for this season so for further details see below. To enter contact Gary English directly or through the East Stirlingshire’s Last Man Standing facebook page. Alternatively speak to Gary or Scott Greenaway at our games.

Last Man Standing will return on 14th September. Watch out for the fixtures for week 1 which will be posted this Friday (23rd August) on the East Stirlingshire’s Last Man Standing facebook page. Information will also be given about The DEADLINE for entry. All entries MUST be paid by this deadline.



1. No Friday night games

The Friday night deadline has been notorious for catching people out, therefore we’re sticking to games only on Saturday or Sunday

2. The deadline will always be Saturday at noon

This way there’s really no excuses for missing the deadline

3. If your game is postponed before the deadline you must reselect your team

This is to stop people who were selecting games and then they were postponed 5 mins later.



– Pick a different SPFL team to win every week to go through, lose or draw and you’re out. (Win must be in 90 mins if a cup tie is selected)

– If you miss the deadline or select the same team twice you will be given the first team alphabetically that you haven’t selected (etc Aberdeen, Airdrie and so on)

– 50% of the SPFL teams must be in action at the weekend for the competition to continue

– If your game is postponed/abandoned you go through but cannot select that team again. This is only if your game is postponed after the deadline

– It’s a one time payment of £5 to enter, with the money being split 50/50 between the club and winning pot (i.e. 200 players means £250 to the winner(s) and £250 to the club)

– If all remaining participants are eliminated the pot will be split accordingly (ie £180 pot and the remaining 3 all lose they get £60 each)

Signing News – Blair Hastings

Derek Ure has added local lad Blair Hastings (18) to his squad.

Player Updates – Injury Update

Sean Brown – Sean tonight returns to full training after a spell out following a routine knee operation during the close season. Sean has been working hard in the gym during pre season and has been doing a lot of straight line running but tonight re-joins the squad in full training and aims to be available for selection for our match v East Kilbride.

Willie Dyer – Willie picked up a kick on his Achilles in our very first pre season match against Blackburn United and although he featured for a short while in our second match v Nairn he was removed from play in the first half. Willie has been doing some light training and he will resume full training next Tuesday and will hopefully be available for our match V East Kilbride.

Eddie Malone – Eddie unfortunately picked up an knee injury during the first 45 mins of pre season against Blackburn United and hasn’t been able to train since despite intensive physio work from Shona Tait. Eddie is awaiting a scan on his knee to help determine the next steps and disappointingly looks like he may be out for a further 4/6 weeks depending on the result of the scan.

100 Club (Home of the Gnome) – Bonus Draw

A special thanks goes to Shire’s new recruit Eddie Malone for helping club chairman, Bill Sharp, with yesterday’s Bonus 100 Club draw which saw Jennifer Bell become the latest winner of the all new Shire Gnome👍
Also thanks to Jamie Louise McVicar who collected it on behalf of Jen and she has assured me she will pass it on😜
Proud to be the Shire⚫️⚪️⚫️
