A Brief History of Carnoustie Panmure Youth FC

The club was first formed as Carnoustie Panmure Boys Club on Thursday 26th April 1979 by Pat Rourke (Coach), Brian Cook (President), Gordon Ross (Secretary & Treasurer), Jeff Yorke (Vice President) and Ian Burgess (Trainer). There were two teams initially, Under 12’s & Under 13’s that played in the Dundee & District Boys League.

The first strips were red/white vertical striped jerseys with black collars & cuffs, black shorts that had a red & white stripe. The change strip was all white. It’s not clear when but in the 2000’s the club’s colours changed to black/red striped tops, black shorts & socks. In 2012 as the club was developing its friendship with the Juniors & YM it decided to change back (albeit they hadn’t realise at the time) to red/white strips to match the adult teams.

The first team to play for the club was the Under 12’s v Glenboig. The squad was Laidlaw, Robertson, Taylor (Capt), J Ross, G Ross, S Webster, Pritchard, Eglington, Yorke, Cook, Waggott, Purden & Baxter. Final score 1-1.

They played some familiar clubs that are still around today but what became of Lochee Lads, St Columba Royals, Vale of Tay, Hillside, Invergowrie, Errol Rangers, Strathtay, Turnberry, MacAlpine Thistle, Kirkton Boys, Craigie Boys, Kennoway Boys, Fintry Rovers, Whitfield Albion, Honeygreen & Mid Kirk Albion?

By 1983 the club had grown to three teams with Ray Wilkie coaching the U10’s, Donny McKay the U12’s & Doug Beeching the U14’s. The younger squad paid 20p a game while the older players paid 30p. Half the money went into the central club funds.

In the early years the club shared Westfield Park with the Juniors before taking over Pitskelly which at that time had a single pitch surrounded by a running track.

The club continued to grow and by 2002 had age groups from Under 10s to Under 19s.  This expansion took place under the leadership of club legend, Euan Kerr, who held the positions of team manager, President, Vice President and Secretary at various times through his long association with the club.

In 2006 planning permission was sought for the Parkview Medical Centre which involved a large section of Pitskelly Park being taken up by the site.  The club were offered the opportunity to replace the changing rooms if they agreed to give up this land.  However this offer was withdrawn and led to then Vice President Mike Andrews writing to all national papers to describe how the offer was reneged upon.  President Barclay Scott met with the construction company who after some tough negotiation agreed to gift the club £30000!  This huge amount of money allowed the infrastructure of the club to be overhauled.  New home strips were purchased for all age groups as well as a new container and portable goals for 7 a side and 11 a side.  This money was seen as an opportunity to fund the club for a generation of Carnoustie’s players.

The club achieved the Angus Club Excellence Gold Award in 2008 (the only club to go straight to gold), the SFA Quality Mark Development Award in 2011 & the SFA Quality Mark Community Award in 2012 (one of only two in the SFA East Region).

A number of girls have played for the club including Holly Napier with Mike Fitzgerald’s team and Emily Gallacher who played for Mike Andrews’ team.  Chloe Jamieson played 4 times for Scotland following her spell with Jim Lorimer’s team.  The inclusion of girls in three teams in one season was one of the main reasons the club changed name for Boys Club to Youth Football Club in 2009.

The club set up a dedicated section for players aged 6 – 8 to play 4v4’s in 2010. That became the Academy the following year and has quickly to about 60 players each year.

2012 saw the club form Carnoustie Panmure Football Club (SCIO) to work with other football clubs to develop new facilities. The club also started working with the Junior FC & Carnoustie YM on creating a full player & coach pathway.

Carnoustie Panmure Football for All

The Youth FC has had a very successful Academy for its Funfours since it’s inception. This has left us with a problem when the teams move to 7 a side football as we have had too many players for one squad and not enough for two. The rules laid down by the associations restrict the numbers of players each team may have so we needed to be smarter in how we managed the transition.

To solve the issue we have now created a new section at the club – Academy Plus
The role of this section will be to provide a continued opportunity for players not selected to sign for main squad when they transition at 7 a side. The club recognises that team managers are taking a snapshot of their squad at 8 year old and needing to select 18 that are the most ready to be their 7 a side team. We understand that players develop at different speeds and that they should be given the opportunity to continue to develop at the club, that they should be encouraged to play at a more relaxed level and given the opportunity to play with the 7 a side squad on Sundays.
The club will work with Angusalive to look for opportunities for them to play games as part of festivals.
Teams will now sign 18 players leaving two places for players from the Academy Plus to play as trialists. Coaches from the 7 a side teams will continue to coach these players and ensure that these late developers are supported.

We are delighted to announce that we have recruited Ian Fleming to manage this section. Ian played for Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Sheffield Wednesday and Dundee and was then player-manager of Brechin City. He was also Assistant Manager at Forfar Athletic & Manager at Icelandic side, Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar.
