The Central Staggies Need YOU
#1
Thumbs Up 
Back in 2012 some County fans based in the Central Belt got together and formed the Central Staggies – a non-affiliated loose conglomerate of like-minded individuals. We arrange to meet up before away games (and the occasional jaunt up to Dingwall) and usually make a day of it.

In our experience the biggest problem with getting to County games when you first move away from the Highlands, be it for university, college or work, is that you don’t have anyone to go with. It held me back for years – it’s just not the same going to a match by yourself.

Whilst the Central Staggies are now well established and we’ve got a good core group of attendees, we thought we’d reach out to anyone who is tempted to try something a bit different by holding something of an open day. Motherwell away this Saturday is our biggest game of the season so far, so what better occasion to get as many Staggies together as possible?

We’re going to meet up in Glasgow at The Crystal Palace bar next to Central Station from 11:30 onwards. Unfortunately, there’s no trains to Motherwell running from Glasgow on Saturday and we don’t really fancy the replacement bus service. However, the added advantage of travelling in numbers is that we can share taxis. If we do that out to Motherwell just after 14:00 it should only take 20 mins and still work out about the same as the train fare each.

We’ll be easily visible in the pub for two reasons: there should be the standard Ross County gear on show, and there’s a suggestion that one or two of those who can’t make the official Hawaiian Day at Kilmarnock are going to go full Hawaiian on Saturday instead just for the fun of it (but don’t let that put you off!).

I appreciate it’s daunting walking up to a group of guys you don’t know, but please don’t be shy – we promise to be welcoming. Most of us didn’t know any of the others before we got involved and are all glad we took the plunge.

The demographic of the group (I think) ranges from late teens to mid-thirties and cover all walks of life, so as long as you’re allowed in a pub you’ll fit right in.

There’s no member list or fees or anything. It’s all very informal and future plans will be advertised on a combination of OTB, Twitter and Facebook. If you’ve got any questions, please feel to ask here or drop me a PM.
