We all know that juggling your commitments these days is difficult to say the least, however we would like everyone to spend just a minute of their time looking at the words in this image. As a club we are finding it increasingly difficult to compete with ’other interests’ and as a consequence more of our games are having to be conceded due to a lack of squad numbers. This has been particularly prevalent this season and the loss of points, as well as being forced to concede cup ties, is no doubt having an impact on the morale of several of our squads and that includes players, coaches and parents alike.

To give you an example of how unexpected withdrawals from a squad can impact others consider this – let’s assume 3 or 4 players decide they can’t play and we are forced to call off a game. That no doubt leaves quite a number of ACO players/parents frustrated that they have no game to enjoy. Add to the mix the opposition players, coaches and parents and all-in these 3 or 4 withdrawals have affected, in all probability, at least 50 individuals. Understandably, those who are prepared to commit themselves to the Club become disillusioned and may eventually look elsewhere for regular football. There are also the financial implications on the club to consider given that pitch hire and refereeing costs have to be met in part or full depending on the timing of the cancellation.

We fully understand that there are occasions during the season when you simply cannot avoid missing either training or a game, however we ask that your other commitments take a back seat and priority is given to your team mates and coaches if there’s a clash of interests.

Remember the facts – a call off can impact up to 50 individuals, the clubs’ reputation can be damaged, there are cost implications and points/ties lost and most importantly of all your team mates are being denied the opportunity to enjoy a sport they clearly love to be part of.

                                        Let’s change things – let’s put AC Oxgangs first!

In common with many pitches up and down the country Colinton Mains Park is often plagued by dog fouling.

We are determined to stamp this out and our Committee often contact the Councils' Environmental Wardens with a view to increasing patrols to catch the owners who are responsible for this anti-social, offensive and potentially harmful conduct ... but we need your help!

The Council has advised that their Environmental Wardens operate a complaints based Tracking System. This means that the more complaints they receive on a regular basis about a specific problem, the more attention it's given. If few complaints are made then there's the possibility the issue will drop off their radar.

Can we therefore ask all users of the pitches at Colinton Mains, be it a parent, player, coach or spectator, to contact the Council on every occasion they come across dog fouling on the pitches and surrounding areas. It would also help if you mention that your concern relates to footballing activities.

In the first instance please refer your complaints to:-

Adam Reid Customer Service Team Leader
South-West Neighbourhood Office
Tel 0131 527 3853
or email Adam.Reid@edinburgh.gov.uk

Please also copy all emails to
southwestteam@edinburgh.gov.uk

With the help of Adam and his team we can all work together to catch the culprits and make our home ground a safer and more pleasant place for everyone concerned.
