News from the far north

I received an Elgin City programme from Davie Milne in beautiful Morayshire this morning. Elgin are enjoying a better-than-usual season in the Scottish Third Division. Bouyed by decent home form (five wins from six), they are holding their own in third place. 

They survive on gates usually counted in the hundreds and, as you can see from the programme, they have to print to cover two matches at a time.

Davie also points out that fellow Addick, Mike Whelan, also an Elgin City regular, now edits the programme. Mike relocated north a number of years ago is obviously well settled. Perhaps the Charlton influence accounts for the change in Elgin's form?
