Scotzine will be SEVEN YEARS old at the end of January and it’s been a labour of love since then. We have had our highs and lows and reported on the good, bad and the ugly of the Scottish game.
When we started back in 2006, there were already sites out there however many were not updated regularly and the mainstream media ruled the roost. Jump to the present day and while the clubs still recognise the mainstream media as the bees knees, the tide is turning towards the internet with the revolution being fan-led.
And with that revolution in full swing, Scotzine has listed websites that we recommend all our readers to bookmark.
Pie & Bovril
When we think of Scottish football and then think of a forum, Pie and Bovril is the first that springs to mind. It labels itself as the staple diet of Scottish football, and it has been since 2003. It is a site that Scottish football fans MUST sign up to and contribute too.
Scottish Football Historial Archive
If stats and history is your fetish, then Brian McColl’s website is a must site to bookmark. From every winner of every competition in Scottish Football to every club in our game listed. It has everything you need if you write about the Scottish game, if u want to prove Hugh Keevins & co wrong or just prove how much you know about the game over a pint or two in the pub as your mates and strangers alike scramble to be your mate when the pub quiz kicks off.
Youth Football Scotland
Youth development and grassroots football is important to the resurgence of our game, and there is only one website that can hold the mantle of the greatest youth football website. Youth Football Scotland is your one stop resource for the youth game whether you are a fan, a player, a coach or a parent involved or looking to get involved in the game.
If you are as passionate about the national team as you are about your club football, then the Tartan Army Messageboard is the place to be. Whether you are the ‘We’ll becoming’ or a ‘Doh-a-Deer’ fan you are welcome here, the TA Board is a must for the Scotland national team supporter.
Tell him he’s Pele
A relatively new site, but Tell him he’s Pele is already establishing itself as the site for those fans whose clubs are in the Scottish Football League. The site was created, out of frustration and annoyance, by two fans who as they state were ‘bored with the lack of quality coverage afforded towards the lower tiers of the football league’. While it may not be a daily news & features website, what it does is combine opinion with features and it does it well. That is why it is a must bookmark site.
Junior Fitba is a site that marries news, results and opinion together to provide coverage of junior football in Scotland. A must visit site for all Junior football fans in Scotland.
ScottishFans.org has been created by Supporters Direct Scotland and funded by the Scottish Government. They state that the site is the place for all fans to engage in debates, with their views then voiced to the football governing bodies in Scotland. One site to follow to see how the fans are being represented rather than being treated as numbers on a spreadsheet.
Womens Football Monthly
Okay, this is one of our sites but it covers the women game in Scotland. A site solely dedicated to the women’s game, it covers the latest news and matches in the game, along with features and interviews.
