SRSC says:  The information that formerly presented the 30's in First Division was planted by the contradictory beliefs of the organization known as PAWEST in collusion with the baying dogs of Allegheny United.  Because of their Thoughtcrime, they will not be sent to Room 101 as is procedure, but instead will be forced to deal with the decimation of the reality in their own heads.
    The Mighty Devils 30's are in Second Division and have always been in Second Division...

The Expansion of TDFC...

    Yes.  There's a waistline joke in there, and normally there would be agreement perhaps.  In this case though, we're talking teams-type expansion.  Even more tribe to echo the beginnings of what we hope is an organization that is around for years to come, waaaaaay after the mud has dried on these boots- ya know?  Your Local Pub Heroes now have a Men's Open GPSL  team (The Young Lads) and an O40 team has been formed as well (The Old Boys).  Along with the O30 squad there has been created a three pronged system.  Neither Eastasia nor Eurasia will be able to withstand the might of the Oceaniac-like might of the TDFC Borg!

    We are also proud to introduce our new sponsor!  Newcastle Brown Ale has decided that we are worthy of their attention and so the 'Walk the Dog Alliance' has begun.  We hope to continue the relationship for years to come, so be nice and have a Newcastle or two every now and again!  That's The One and Only, Newcastle.  If enough of you dog walkers make a dent in some numbers, we'll ALL be styling!  Too heavy on the advert?  Freedom is slavery, chew on that then.    http://newcastlebrown.com/#/the_pub/legend_of_the_dog/walking_the_dog

    It would be silly to speak of pub without thanking our benefactor as well for the opportunity to build a soccer club from scratch.  Because what we have at our public house is special.  It's that bond with a building that includes and exudes the personality within.  We thank The Ministry of Piper's Pub for the continued support and our aim is to represent our homebase well, on and off the pitch!  All hail the Pub!!!    http://www.piperspub.com/

    The home pitch for the O30 and O40 divisions will once again be Founder's Field in Cheswick, home of the Pittsburgh Harlequins RC.  We thank our friends for working with us so we can continue to play on the best pitch around!  Those rugby guys may have hard skulls and funny ears, but they are all right by us!    http://www.pittsburghharlequins.org/  The U30 division will be gracing the hinterlands of Graham Park in Cranberry.  They're not so shabby out that way either. 

    It also behooves the writer to thank the TDFC Founders for getting this all off the ground and for helping to mold it into the shape of things to come.  Also all those whose input, opinion and work off the field has been integral in helping this grow.  Can we say we have fans?  Sure can, why not?  That Facebook thingy is pretty cool for this kind of stuff.    https://www.facebook.com/TartanDevilsFC
    Those that can, come out and support the matches, celebrate our victories and help us figure the setbacks.  It is the desire of all that helps this one idea, a vehicle for tomorrow.  Duty now for the future, Devils!  (Yer damn right that was a Devo reference!)

    In the past the Simply Red Collective wrote a pretty intensive game report.  With the added teams, you may find a more concise commie capsule: scores, maybe a high light or two, some names of young pioneers (not to be confused with the original Young Pioneer), maybe some photo's.  Hard to tell how this is all gonna take shape, but it'll be cooler than the other squads in the league that's for sure!  Exactly.

    So that's what's going on.  It's been a choppy ride these last bunch of months and it was difficult to keep up our end of the Blog Bargain (and it is a bargain), but life can be a little dicey- we'll try to be more on top of all the news, information, and good clean propaganda that you have come to expect from your Local Pub Heroes, Tartan Devils Football Club.  Schedules for ya as soon as we get 'em!  All hail!!!
