Re: Origin of the term 'Sand Dancer'

Heard a long time ago that that the term originated from the days when the local fishermen lived on the beach in dwellings known as "Shiels" and the term "Sandancer" came from the dances that they held on the beach

Thanks for you comments malaymac, You are of course right about having some incredible memories from conflicts like the Falklands and the first Gulf War. Unfortunately, as you may understand, they are not all good. I remember being daft enough to to stop and take a Photo of an Unexploded bomb that e...

Was actually a member o...

Result 16/12/07

Simonside SC 6 - 3 JML Rafters Thought Sima dominated the first half but due to some good goalkeeping by Rafters only managed a 1 - 0 lead at half time. The second half was a much more lively affair with both teams battling well. could have gone either way until the last 15, when Sima to get a coupl...

Match result 2/12/07

Cally 7 - 0 Sima
Don't want to talk or even think about this one.
Awfull weather and awfull match with some strange refereeing (not that that would have changed the result much)

A Division Cup Result 25-11-07

Simonside once again visited a strong Prince of Wales side to move forward into the next round of the League Cup. In what I can best describe as a hard fought game, the Sima lads managed to hold off a Prince of Wales onslaught in the last 15 minutes to take the game into extra time at 1 - 1. the sta...

Match result 18/11/07

Prince Edward Pirates 2 - 4 Simonside SC
The easiest way to describe this game was the sima lads where the better (but only just) of 2 poor sides on the day.
Hopefully Barry Fry will come in and give a full match report.

Re: Sima v Top Club Match Report

Fair account of the game Barry, =D> although I feel it’s unnecessary to criticise certain players on a public web site [-X [-X .
If you want to follow that path, you could soon be struggling to get a team out at all.

Re: sima v boldon colts match report

Just going from what I did see of the match it should have been a comfortable win for the Sima lads, but as stated by Barry Fry they were let down by some very poor defending (and a few strange refereeing decisions)
Incidentally Barry, I thought it was Darren Wann that had the goal disallowed! :lol:
