|Pitch side banners proving very popular with local businesses |
We aim to give value for money to all of our sponsors and those who took pitch side banners have been speaking about how pleased they are with their match day advertisements. At the home match against Tynecastle at the weekend, various sponsors were said to be delighted with their investment.
The banners currently run along the fence at the dugout side of the park, but the aim eventually is for them to also be visible behind the goal at the church end.
Twenty six banners were taken by companies from surrounding areas earlier in the month for a bargain price of £100 for the season.
If you are interested in your company having a presence at our matches then please contact email@example.com.

|Hay & Crawford prove clinical in entertaining cup tie at Home Park |
Result: Coldstream 7 : 4 Tynecastle // Image Printers Cup 1st Round
Jack Hay scored four and John Crawford bagged a hat-trick as Coldstream won a thrilling cup tie at Home Park.
With both teams very poor in defence, there could easily have been more than the 11 goals served up in this hugely entertaining Image Printers East of Scotland Qualifying Cup first round tie.
In the end, Coldstream’s clinical front two proved to be the difference between the teams. Captain Crawford has now scored eight goals in four games, but the limelight was stolen from him this time by strike partner Hay, who was outstanding.
With Phil Johnson in charge in the absence of manager Oliver, Coldstream made another slow start and fell behind when a free-kick whipped in from the left was headed in by Tony Muir.
But the home side quickly rallied, Crawford bundling over from close range and then running on to a beautiful Hay through ball to round the keep and slot into the net.
A great run and cut-back from Jonny Simpson on the left was expertly turned in by Hay at the near post to put Coldstream 3-1 up, but they conceded from another free-kick just before half time.
Like the first one, it was needlessly given away by Kieran Ainslie, and poor marking allowed Jamie Devlin to head home the cross at the near post.
Tynecastle’s Brendan Edwards nearly equalised for Tynecastle early in the second half with a free-kick which hit the post.
But the visitors did make it 3-3 when hesitation at the heart of the Coldstream defence enabled Devlin to control a high bouncing ball and run into the box before firing low into the net.
But with Hay and Crawford looking razor sharp in attack and Tynecastle looking equally vulnerable at the back, Coldstream looked like scoring nearly every time they went forward.
The strikers combined in the 63rd minute to put Coldstream ahead, Hay cutting in from the right and squaring for Crawford to complete his hat-trick.
Devlin fired home another equaliser for Tynecastle in the 67th minute after Coldstream failed to react inside the box.
But two minutes later Coldstream were 5-4 ahead. This time it was Hay getting on the end of a low cross from Simpson. He completed his hat-trick by dribbling through the defence to slide home Coldstream’s sixth goal.
With Tynecastle struggling, Crawford smashed a shot against the inside of the post before Josh Hebdon released Hay to score his fourth and Coldstream’s seventh.
Coldstream: Walters, Wales, Powling, Ainslie, Baxendale, J. Simpson, Lauder, Devaney, Hebdon, J. Hay, Crawford (C). SUBS - Graham, Rutherford, Johnson.

|Prank sees Jonny Simpson unwillingly star in Arachnophobia II! |
Sean Simpson was tonight branded 'not funny' and 'evil' by a distraught Jonny Simpson, who was spotted sprinting down the Pivvy corridor screaming in a very high pitched voice!
Jonny had stayed back to do some shooting drills with trainer Phil Johnson, but was totally oblivious to what his name sake was planning inside the dressing room. Having left the training ground early, Sean stumbled upon one of largest spiders ever to be seen at Home Park whilst in the shower and duly picked up the eight legged monster before placing it under a red cone at the flame haired wingers seat.
He then disguised it with a bit of paper saying that it was 'from the committee'. The prank clearly did not register with Jonny who then picked up the cone with intent before dancing around the changing room feeling clearly distressed!
The big suprise was John Crawford's fear of spiders too! He certainly did not appreciate Sean's humour!
Retribution is expected in the coming weeks...

|COLDSTREAM TV: Leith Athletic's camera captures all of the action |
Result: Leith Athletic 1 : 0 Coldstream // East of Scotland Premier Division
John Leifer and COLDSTREAM TV were absent from Meadowbank 3G on Saturday, but Leith Athletic also record their matches so they have kindly allowed us to use the footage on coldstreamfc.co.uk.
The opening match of our East of Scotland Premier Division campaign ended in disappointment, but the highlights show what a good game it was for the neutral despite us losing 1 - 0 and playing the majority of the match with ten men following Greg Hay's dismissal early on.
Well done to Leith on some fantastic footage!
