Nickname:

The Pansies

Ground:

Balfield Road Dundee  

Honours Scottish Junior Cup Winners: 1928/29 East Region North Divison Winners: 2011/12

Dundee Violet and Dalkeith Thistle both won promotion to the East Region Premier League at the end of the 2011/12 season. The Pansies were the first ever club from Tayside to win the Scottish Junior Cup, achieving this in the 1928/29 season. The final was played against Denny Hibs and it took three games to eventually decide a winner. The first game was protested as Dundee Violet fielded an ineligible player. This led to a replay which finished a 2-2 draw. The third game, which was played at Dens Park was comfortably won by Violet 4-0. Dundee currently find their selves at the foot of the table, having taken 8 points from their opening 17 games. Earlier in the season, the teams shared the points on the reverse fixture.

Management View Unfortunately last weeks game against Haddington fell foul to the weather. As we couldn’t secure training facilities we allowed the lads a well earned break but the management team didn’t sit idol as it gave us the chance to catch a game not too far from us, so we travelled down the A1 to see Tranent playing host to St Andrews United in a Premier League game. Considering the conditions the park was in excellent condition and it was a very enjoyable game as both teams tried to get the ball down and make passes. St Andrews just like our game the previous week were excellent and should have taken something form the game. They are really building a good side

together and will certainly be looking to have a good season next year. It was a very worthwhile exercise as we still have a league encounter with Tranent and a 3rd Round Fife & Lothian’s cup tie in the coming months. Both games being at King’s Park. They are on a great run since Darren Smith & Kenny Rafferty took charge and they have really galvanised them. They have very good players all over the pitch but they did it the ugly way on Saturday by digging in for each other to snatch the 3pts with minutes to go. We look forward to both games when they come to Dalkeith.

After our fortunate but excellent result against St Andrews 3 weeks ago we followed that with a very good team performance to win the game 4-0 against Glenrothes. It was good to see Mikey Hunter getting the first goal of the game. The big man knows with his attacking qualities he should be getting more goals from midfield. He often gets into great positions but doesn’t finish them off. Hopefully this is the start of a good run for him. He had a really good game providing a great through ball for Tansey to make it 2-0 and that really was the killer 2nd goal. We looked very comfortable for the remainder of the game. Our back four led by Dean Whitson were again excellent in limiting Jeffers to only having to deal with long range efforts. Our squad is getting stronger week on week and to be able to replace a tiring Mikey Hunter with Daz

McGlashen is a real bonus. Daz was a real driving force in the last 25mins from midfield and set up Daryl Devlin (who was also excellent) to get the 3rd with a superb cross. Getting 4 different scorers was another plus point. Stew Adams worked tirelessly without getting an opportunity of a shot at goal until the 91st minute when he slotted his shot into the corner with his only chance. It was another welcome 3pts and kept us up in 5th. We took the opportunity to get a friendly game against Edinburgh Utd on Tuesday night at Dalkeith Campus. It was good to see a few boys getting much needed 90mins like Shaun Murray, Dan Greig, Daz McGlashen and Scotty Waugh. Although in general as a team we didn’t play particularly well and looked like we had a ‘friendly’ attitude.


Management View A point which we made at half time, that displaying that was unacceptable. In any game or training you have to show that hunger and desire to succeed and play/train to your maximum or there is no point in being there. Our 2nd half showing was slightly better but over the 90mins it was no where near the levels they have achieved in recent weeks. An added bonus and always pleasing to see was another young Jag getting some valuable experience playing with the first team. Young midfielder Jack Burrows from our u17s played the 2nd half and didn’t look out of place at all. A tall elegant player, really good on the ball but doesn’t shirk a tackle he did really

well on a tricky pitch against a busy energetic side. Tam Yuill’s side have a number of excellent young players and Jack is probably the 3rd or 4th player to get a run out over the course of the season. These guys are the future for The Jags and we want to give young players the opportunity to play in our first team. If they are good enough they are old enough. We have no doubts that will feature plenty more times in the next couple of years and long may it continue. This Saturday hopefully the weather is kind to us and we can get back playing a competitive game. We are scheduled to welcome Dundee Violet to King’s Park for our 21st league game of the season. They have been having a difficult season but more than capable of going on a run of winning games to

get out of trouble and stay in this league. We drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture away back in August. We felt we did enough on the day to see the game out when being in front but a defensive error midway through the 2nd half allowed Violet to take a point. We have been on an excellent run of late which has propelled us to 5th position in the league. Albeit having played a few more games than the teams round about us it’s good to have the points on the board. It’s massively important we continue to put pressure on the teams above and around us by winning on Saturday and consolidating that position. Be great to see the town getting behind the club over the last few months of the season to take forward into next year. We feel there is exciting times ahead for the team and the club and the more people involved the better. Hope to see as many as possible on Saturday. C’mon The Jags Haynesy, Dunny, Willie J, Budgie & Combey

An earlier Result of Nerazzurri Futsal Club B beating Lothian Balompie left The Jags needing to beat Tron-

co Locos to win the first Division title. Thistle went to work leading 7-3 in the first half 2nd half was a different story with Thistle losing shape and composure causingTronco to level the score 8 -8. With one minute to go David Wardhaugh slotted the ball in Locos net to seal the title for Thistle and become the 1st Community Club/Junior team in Scotland to win a Futsal Trophy. FT: Tronco Locos 8 v 9 Dalkeith Thistle (D.Wardhaugh x 4, K.Austin x 3, M.Woodcock x2) Dalkeith Thistle A

Scottish Cup last 16.... Today's match was a bit of an anti-climax. We were up against coatbridge utd @ Dalkeith Campus... We never got going today and it was as bad as we've played all season... We took the lead after a decent bit of play(few & far between) that saw Tam rifle the ball home.... We jst huffed and puffed today without gettting out of first gear and it was frustrating to watch and no doubt equally as bad to play in. We managed to gift our opponents an equaliser with the last kick of the ball before H/T. Second half was the same, jst lacked any quality and we found ourselves 2-1 down. We rallied and played a bit better once Danny & Nugs got their foot on the ball. We got some joy down their left and Aitchy does what he does and knocks in the equaliser.... The match finished 2-2 and onto pens.....

We won 3-2 on the spot kicks, Disco,Jai, Nugget slotting home..... Paul made a fine save with their 2nd penalty.... Really poor performance today but didn't deserve to lose the game in the 90mins and did jst enough to scrape through.....

MATCH REPORT Dalkeith Thistle 4 - 0 Glenrothes FC The Jags went into this game in fine form having won their previous 3 games on the bounce. Manager Kevin Haynes, celebrating a year in charge of The Jags, was able to field the same starting line up that had done so well in those matches. Glenrothes are a notoriously stuffy side to break down and all previous encounters between the sides have been extremely close, usually being won by the odd goal, but that all changed in this match. The Jags were first to settle and, with Mikey Hunter and Darryl Devlin pulling the strings in the middle of the park, looked assured and comfortable on the ball. So it was no surprise when The Jags opened the scoring with just seven minutes played. Paul Tansey harried a defender into making a mistake 25 yards from goal and stole the ball before passing to Stewart Adams who in turn held the ball up before feeding Mikey Hunter with a neat pass. The Jags Captain burst into the box with a well timed run and calmly stroked the ball past the Glens keeper. Glenrothes tried to react to this setback but McQueen’s goal was well protected by a determined centre half pairing of Callam McNeil and Dean Whitson. In truth the remainder of the half became a bit of a slog for both sides on a slippy surface with neither side creating much but the Jags never looked in danger of losing their lead. The Glens pressed the Jags back at the start of the second half winning a series of corners but these were dealt comfortably by McQueen. The Jags started to exert some pressure of their own and on 55 minutes The Jags extended their lead through Paul Tansey. The wee man, finding himself with just the keeper to beat thanks to an inch-perfect and defence-splitting pass from Mikey Hunter, showed great composure to stroke the ball past the Glens Keeper. There was no way back for the visitors after this goal and The Jags continued to probe and make chances. The Jags were now on easy street but determined to keep a clean sheet so Dan Greig came on in place of Mikey Hunter and Shaun Murray on for Ryan Mcqueenie. Then with 20 minutes left Darren McGlashan was introduced for Paul Tansey and he was instrumental in The Jags third goal with

just 15 minutes left when his deflected cross from the right was nodded home by Darryl Devlin. The Glens huffed and puffed to try and create opening but ultimately James McQueen never really had a save to make. Deep into injury time Stewart Adams put the icing on the cake by scoring the fourth goal. The big striker had worked his socks off all day, harrying defenders into making mistakes and laying the ball off for his team mates but without getting a sniff of a chance on goal. That all changed when Darryl Devlin flicked a high ball into his path and the Adams made it look so so easy as he calmly rolled the ball past the advancing keeper into the left corner of the net.

The referee blew for full time shortly after this and the Jags celebrated a fourth straight league win and now look forward to a trip to Haddington next week with confidence.
