East Stirlingshire 1880 Black & White Fund

Right now, football is of little importance, where we finish in a league or cup doesn’t matter, how will we finish or start the season is irrelevant.

The message is Black and White – Stay at home, it will save lives.

East Stirlingshire as a club are very aware that we have players and staff who currently like us all have no idea when they will next kick a ball, treat an injury or wash a shirt and they all have family and loved ones to look after and with this in mind the Board of Directors will ensure that all players and staff contracts are honored in full during this uncertain time and everyone will be paid 100% salary.

We have players and staff who are working right on the front line for the NHS and Social Care organisations and we feel we must support them in our small way. 

All our income has stopped and without doubt the coming months will take our club to the absolute limit financially and we will need every bit of support available to survive as a club. Can you help us? 

Since 1880 we have been a part of Scottish football history, from Sir Alex Ferguson's first Management role to being the first club to be relegated in the Scottish Pyramid system we have always battled adversity head on and right now again we face an uncertain time.  

We have supporters from across the globe, many people who follow us as their second team,  perhaps you have taken us to glory in Football Manager or read about us in the book "Pointless", however you know us we ask if you could help us survive. 


Every penny raised will go straight into keeping the club afloat and ready for when finally football finally returns.

Thanks for reading, please stay well and when all this is over join us in cheering on the Shire.
