Heres hoping the sun shines on what promises to be a busy day at Balmoor.

“I wanted to take the opportunity to make a short statement in the wake of taking the decision to move on from Peterhead Football Club. I do this with a great deal of sadness having spent so many fantastic years at the club. I have had a few discussions with Jim McInally since the end of last season and I just feel that at this stage of my career, with plenty still to offer playing wise, it’s the right time to move on.

Jim has been very supportive and fantastic throughout this and in Jim, Peterhead have a great manager and person in charge at the club and I have absolutely no doubt that he will put Peterhead where they deserve to be, starting with promotion from the 3rd division.

I’d like to also express my deepest thanks to everyone at the club for everything that they have done for me through the years, Roger Morrison, Ian Grant, Harry Fraser and the directors of the club, Jim, Craig, Davie and Scott on the management side, Jock and Stan, Greg Smith, all the players I’ve played with through the years, all the Managers that I’ve had and last but certainly not least all the supporters who have been really really great towards me over the years. I certainly hope I haven’t missed anyone in the above but there are really too many to mention.

All that is left is for me to wish you all the best of luck for the future and I’m sure I’ll see you in the coming weeks, months and years.

Thanks again,

Martin”

Midfielder Ryan McCann and striker Andy Rodgers have agreed one year deals with the Bloo Toon. Manager Jim McInally said 'I am delighted that Ryan and Andy have agreed to stay with us and that completes the bulk of last years squad who lost so narrowly on promotion. We now have a squad of 18 players committed to the cause for the forthcoming season. I am of course interested in bringing in new players to freshen things up but we have to be patient and wait for the right players to be available'.

Pre-season commences on Wednesday 26th June.

Fixtures for 2013/2014

We have now updated our fixture list for the new season. You will find this under matches then into fixture 2013/2014.

Dean Cowie has signed a new contract for the forthcoming campaign. The tough tackling midfielder had been considering other offers but decided to stay and help the Bloo Toon in their quest to gain promotion next season. Manager Jim McInally has also agreed a new deal with ex Northern Ireland midfielder Bryan Gilfillan. Bryan was offered an attractive deal from Annan Athletic but has chosen to stay with Peterhead. The squad is shaping up nicely and it is anticipated pre-season training will commence on 26th July.

The SFL have voted 23/6 in favour of one league body (SPFL) at today's meeting in the National Stadium. Peterhead FC Chairman Rodger Morrison was delighted with the outcome and said 'I'm glad that we got what we were fighting for and whilst this will not cure all ails in Scottish football i believe that it is a massive step forward'.

Squad for 2013-14

Jim McInally has been busy over the last 2 weeks securing deals for 9 players from his existing squad which came so painfully close to promotion last season. Dean Cowie, David Cox, Steven Noble, Paul Jarvie, Jamie Redman, Scott Ross, Graeme Sharp, Graeme Smith and Ryan Strachan have all agreed new deals which keeps them at Balmoor next season. Martin Bavidge and Callum Mac Donald return from holiday this week and will also be offered new deals. Add to this leading goalscorer Rory McAllister and local lads Jamie Beagrie and P A Bruce who have aready penned deals for next season and the squad for 2013-14 is looking really strong.

Jim said `I am proud of what the boys achieved last season and am delighted that I will be able to keep the bulk of the squad for the forthcoming campaign. We aim to start pre-season training in mid June and already have most of our friendly matches arranged. Hopefully we can use the disappointment of just losing out last season to really push for a promotion spot in 2013-14.`

It was with great sadness to hear of the deaths of Falconer and Ken.

Falconer was a popular full back who starred for the Bloo Toon in the late 70s. He was part of the side that won succesive Qualifying Cups in 1977 and 1978.

Ken was a stalwart supporter who was also a member of the Executive Club.

Both will be sorely missed and the Chairman, Board of Directors and all at Peterhead FC pass on our sincere condolensces to the familes.

An Andy Rodgers penalty in injury time gave Peterhead a 1-0 advantage over Queens Park in this play-off semi final first leg. Queens failed to clear a Steven Noble free kick properly and when Spittal slid in on substitute Rodgers the referee immediately pointed to the spot. Rodgers made no mistake with virtually the last kick of the game.

Whilst Queens had the bulk of possession and passed the ball well it was the Bloo Toon side who looked more threatening. Rory McAllister who came off injured later in the game came close with two efforts midway through the first half. Neil Parry in the home goals producing two good saves. Rodgers made an immediate impact on replacing McAllister with his lob hitting the bar.

A great win for Peterhead at the National Stadium and now a record 9 wins in a row with only one goal conceded. All to play for on Saturday.

A large crowd is expected on Saturday ( 3pm kick off )   It is recommended that fans turn up early.

The Second Division play-off game at Hampden Park, Glasgow on Wednesday 8th May kicks off at 7.30pm.

Match Report Impressive Peterhead cruise Bryan Gilfillan scored his fifth goal of the campaign as Peterhead clinched second spot with a 3-0 win over play-off opponents Queen's Park. The visitors went ahead in the 21st minute when Gilfillan latched onto David Cox's cross to head past Queen's Park stopper Blair Lochhead from close range. The Spiders pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages of the first half but they could not find a way past Graeme Smith in Peterhead's net. The Blue Toon doubled their lead seven minutes after the re-start when Andrew Rodgers drilled in from 12 yards. Jim McInally's men completed the rout in the 79th minute when Dean Cowie found the top left of Lochhead's goal from 20 yards. From SFL website.

The following awards were presented at the PFC Supporters Club Dinner held at The Bloo Toon Lounge on Saturday 27th April 2013  :

Player of the Year                   :             Graeme Smith

Young Player of the Year         :             David Cox

Top Goal Scorer                     :             Rory McAllister

Entertainment was provided in the form of a disco from Jim Reid. 200 people including all the players and management team attended the evening and a great night was had by all

A few people have been asking if their season tickets allow then access to the play off games and just to clarify, yes they do.
