You're right about the overspill.Irvine is the only place in Ayrshire that has an actual Celtic supporters social club. Must be due to the relocating from the Glasgow overspill in the 70s. Not many Catholics in Ayrshire.
Well said ! The outcome is that we now have every pub in Irvine a scum free zone ! And that is the reason for there mhanky club no pub in Irvine would have them !!!You're right about the overspill.
A CSC in a town isn't a bad thing though to be honest. It keeps them in one place and out of the 'normal' boozers.
I remember being in Bar Sport for one of our away Euro qualifiers last season. Bar staff told me there had been about 20 yahoos in the day before for their qualifier. The place was mobbed for ours. It was great, the place was bouncing and some singing broke out later in the game as folk, quite rightly, got carried away. It was a great wee night.Well said !

Not yes but was nearly banned from the Stevenston supporters bus.
After a home game I was needing a No 2 and was going to go into the Wee Rangers club to perform my duties, but time was at the essence and did not want to hold the bus up and decided to use the bus loo.
Long story short....The Bus toilet had no water to flush and well, lets just say the odour was not too pleasant and the whole bus reeked. With a Pure Beamer I took my seat and the comments were fast and furious to say the least. Scarf were being used as "gas masks" with no effect.
The bus was still parked waiting for others which was a good job, as two lassies from the back of the bus had to run off as the boak was too much, and they both threw up. It could have been the booze mind you, but we will never know.
Apart from that wee incident everything is hunky dorry.
Don’t know how up to date my info is but I believe the plan is to open the RSC about Xmas time. There’s a fund raising Sportsman’s dinner organised for November with Derek Johnstone and Alex Rae speaking at it.Wonder what happened to the plans to have an RSC just along the road.
