The Loco’s


I pass this gate several times each week and until today never really took much notice of it.

According to the clubs website and of course Wikipedia:
 “Inverurie Loco Works are a semi-professional senior football club from Inverurie, in Aberdeenshire, in North East Scotland, who currently play in the Highland Football League and were founded in 1903 by workmen from the Great North of Scotland Railway Company (GNSR) who had their Locomotive and Carriage & Wagon Workshops at Inverurie, hence from where the football club got its name. On national railway company ‘Grouping’ in 1923, the GNSR became part of the London & North Eastern Railway, one of the UK’s big four railway companies at that time, and the football club lived on.”

It’s a really vibrant local club with many local sponsors however try as I might I cannot find anything on the clubs website advising when the next match will take place. It’s the internet age after all.

Fortunately there is a sign in the car park proclaiming “Next Home Game, Loco’s V Lossiemouth, 30th March.”

I am tempted to attend.
