    Lots of respect for Deeks. Lived the dream.

    Was at a race night a while back at the Clerrie Inn for my Nephews Edinburgh City fundraiser. Deeks came in with a few mates, sat down & spent some time with my Nephew & his team mates, chatting & answering questions etc, made the young lads day.

    Different class Deeks👍

    I run St Bernardís and Derek is a very good friend of ours, now heís retired from professional football heís just coming to play with his mates for a kickabout and pass a wee bit of experience back down.
    How much are you paying him ? Or do you you cover yourself by saying "it's travelling fees"

    Good luck to you - and him.

    I see the predictable "how much are you paying him" nonsense appeared on twitter.

    Some people are just bams, eh?
    St Bernards are known for it, when it comes to fair play they certainly don't go by the rules. "Travelling fees" is the favourite line.

    Not sure if you are being sarcastic here or naive. You obviously never encountered Breeks at Pencaitland etc if it’s the latter.

    Ronnie Hall? If so then no heís not involved however we do speak regularly and he takes a very keen interest in how we are doing.

    He was my manager there before I took over the team!
    Thereís a blast from the past.... Ronnie and I were in the same class at school, all the way through primary and secondary....... he used to get dogs abuse for being a Jambo

    Where on earth would these sort of teams be getting the money to pay players?

    Iíd love to know the answer to this one aswell! Instead of chasing players for their fivers every week, maybe il deduct it from their pay packets 🙈

    Is there a Vlad figure operating in the world of the Lothian and Edinburgh Amateurs? Does he pick the side and get to come on for the last five minutes of the Stevie Maskrey Cup final so he can lap up the glory. This thread is fast becoming a Hibs Net classic. Keep it coming folks

    The joke is on you if you honestly believe top amateur teams particularly in Glasgow don't give certain players back handers to play on a Saturday morning. It's rife.

    I've played amateur for years at a very good level and an absolutelt ***** level and I can honestly say I was never offered a penny.

    I ran a team for the 2nd half of last season just to help out and ended up nearly £500 out of pocket just trying to cover costs. If other guys are making enough that they can afford to pay their players then I want to know their secret.

    Damn,all those years of playing football and I never caught onto the fish suppers for playing scandal, I always thought it was a buy your own scenario. There again I'm vegetarian. Now it's all about pro's retiring from the dizzy heights of Scottish League 2 in order to cash in on the amateur bonanza. Clearly my career was 20 years too late for this unpredicted explosion of backhanded luncheon vouchers and bus tokens that allegedly make the once proud Lothian leagues a mockery of the words pub team.

    yip im the same, played saturday and sunday and never heard of any teams in west lothian or edinburgh paying players, some guys were weeks behind with their subs never mind being paid to play, clearly someone on here wasn't good enough to get a game somewhere so is a bit bitter!!

    A sugar Daddy ? I played for Captains Bar many years back & there were one or two top players who never had to put their hands in their pockets for drinkipoos.... Playing for that team cost me a bloody fortune !! ☹️

    I doubt if Derek Riordan is getting paid anything to play for St Bernards.
    I was actually a household name, and also a great player in my heyday, but despite scoring several hat-tricks, I never got paid a penny.
