Saturday 12th July saw the annual Aberdeen leg of the Scottish Touch Series take place at Woodside Sports Complex with 18 teams from around Scotland competing. The final saw Six Pack beat Hoodlums to claim the cup but the biggest event of the day was undoubtedly the grand reveal of the new Guerillas ‘home’ strips.

Guerillas are currently training on Monday evenings and the Aberdeen autumn league starts on Wednesday 30th July.

Guerillas are Recruiting

Posted: January 20, 2013 by guerillastrc in Uncategorized

Guerillas are currently training indoors on Monday nights and these sessions will concentrate on the basics of the game and developing skills. We plan to continue training once a week through March then move to twice a week when the clocks are moved forward.

This is the ideal time for new players to come along to try out the sport, please email the club if you are interested. All new players are welcome whether they be complete beginners or more experienced players looking to move to a club that offers a development pathway to competing at the highest levels.

We offer some of the best coaching in Scotland with teams of coaches dedicated to each of our squads. The club had nine players competing at last year’s European Championships, four of them representing their country for the first time. Three of that four made their international debut in their first season training with Guerillas.

If you are interested in finding out more drop us an email or check out our Facebook Page for updates.

Guerillas training for November and December 2012

Posted: November 8, 2012 by guerillastrc in training

Guerillas will be continuing with training for the period Monday 12th November through December 10th. The venue will be half of the synthetic hockey pitch at Keith Park – the university pitches at Hillhead just north of Seaton Park. It’s the same turn off from King Street as for Seaton Park but carry on up the hill past the park and then turn right. Immediately right again takes you down a track to the car park at the bottom next to the pitch. Training time is 7:30pm-9pm. New players very welcome. Map below.

It is early days in gathering data in the Big Boot Survey but looking over the handful of initial responses gives a good idea of what brands of footwear are being used for touch . First thing to say is that we are currently dealing with a relatively small sample size, however these same results will be updated when more data is gathered.

The shoes are fairly even split in use between what might be called ‘dedicated’ touch shoes and boots that are mainly marketed as for football or rugby use. Asics and X-Blades are the only brands mentioned who make a shoe that is marketed as for touch. However it has been noted that some of the shoes that Asics designate as hockey shoes in the UK bear a striking resemblance to touch shoes sold in Australia, particularly in the tread pattern.

For boots that have not been bought as touch shoes the majority are football (soccer) boots. However it is not possible to say if these are used for both sports or if they were a new purchase for touch use.

I’ll start to release results on how individual manufacturers and boots are rated once a much larger data set is available to draw conclusions from. So if you’ve not already entered results for the boots you’ve owned click here. EXTRA SURVEY RESULTS ARE AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO COMPLETE THE SURVEY. Read the rest of this entry »
