I've kinda given up on publishing 'news' on the site, I find it easier just to let you get on with it on the Message Boards! Any news snippets I do have, I'll put on here, such as reports from the AGM etc., and I do occasionally pick up some juicy snippets on Match Day!

Safely Through

29th July, 2018

Despite Motherwell scoring 3 in the last 10 minutes to come from behind to beat Clyde yesterday and win the group, Queens are safely through to the next round of the Betfred League Cup as one of the best group runners-up.


I Stayed At Home

11th July, 2018

Let me think, Queens v LivingstonHearts in a pre-season match, or BrazilEngland v BelguimCroatia in the World Cup QuarterSemi Finals?  I know which one won out for me!  And just for the record, I was disappointed with the result!


Pre-Pre Season?

7th July, 2018

Let me think, Queens v Livingston in a pre-season match, or Brazil v Belguim in the World Cup Quarter Finals?  I know which one won out for me!  My thinking is, the new format League Cup Groups were brought in to give sides games before the league season kicks off, so this game was a warm up for pre-season!  I was talking to Willie Gibson a couple of weeks ago, and he was saying that with Peterhead making the Play-off finals, he would only be getting a 3 week break this year.  You may find it hard to sympathise with someone on a 1 1/2 hour week tongue-out, but when you think of the travelling he is doing, and the pressures professional sports people put their bodies under these days, is that really fair?  It's not as if he's got a week at Christmas to look forward to!


Not Us Then

Kevin Holt has signed for Cypriot side Pafos. They are managed by Stephen Presley.


Season Review 2017/18 Round Up

6th June, 2018

The frustration of the 2017/2018 for me was summed up when Livingston came through the play-offs to earn promotion to the SPL.  You can say that Queens have no right to beat Dundee United, Dunfermline, Falkirk etc., but Livingston probably had a smaller budget than us!  They hammered us 3-0 at Palmerston, but actually, our record in head-to-head games with them was won 1, lost 1, drew 2.  I believe we had a team at least as good as their's, but it was their ability to turn draws into wins which saw them succeed, they seemed to have the will and belief to win.  They also proved that it is possible to come straight from the 1st Division to The Championship and go up, I remember when we came up we were happy to consolidate.  They just seem to have a different attitude!


2017/2018 Season Review Part 7

2nd June, 2018

Queens season fizzled out, before sparking back into life when it no longer mattered, to give us all (false?) hope for next season.  Here's how our season ended.


2017/2018 Season Review Part 6

30th May, 2018

January can be a make or break month (ask St. Mirren), so we waited to see what Queens could do in the transfer window to kick our season on. Unfortunately, probably the biggest thing to happen was Chris Kane and Jason Kerr returning to St. Johnstone, as they had both been hitting a bit of form, although we did manage to bring in some decent players.


2017/2018 Season Review Part 5

26th May, 2018

As we entered the Autumn months, Queens continued to hover just below the play-offs.  I was quite pleased with the way we were playing at this time, and thought we looked as good as most of the teams in our league.


Season Review 2017/2018 Part 4

23rd May, 2018

Stephen Dobbie always seems to play well when the Sun shines, and his hat-trick at Falkirk on 26th August seemed to confirm this, as Queens moved up towards the top of the Championship.


Season Review 2017/2018 Part 3

19th May, 2018

Queens used to be slow starters, but once again this year, we lept straight to the top of the table with some good early wins.  Early on at least, it was looking good, although we perhaps set our expectations too high?
