What was the attraction about joining the team?
“Good group of guys who were previously all together at Whitson Star for a few seasons ,and then all made the switch to stick together at Fernie once Whitson called it a day.”
What are the team objectives short and long term?
“Short term – get back playing games ASAP.”
“Long term – try and work our way back up the League’s.”
Best player you have played with and against?
“There’s been a good few, but probably – Geo McGregor & Paul McCracken at Craigshill.”
What is the best prank or wind up you have seen at football?
“Simple but effective – the old shirt and tie at a game, Danny Glancy getting done a beauty by the Westside boys a couple years back.”
If you could sign a player from a fellow Amateur side to boost your squad, who would he be?
