Dyce Boys Club’s Day Out

2004's 2006s & 2007s Club News Featured Former Players Uncategorized

As part of the SFA Community Club Project currently ongoing with the club led by Liam Duncan, Dyce Boys Club were asked to play on the pitch at half time during the Aberdeen FC v Kilmarnock FC match in the SPFL Premiership. Our 2004 side played a 5 aside match and our 2007s played a 4 v 4 game infront of a crowd of eleven thousand at Pittodrie.



Along with this great experience the club were given 150 tickets for players, coaches and parents and this allocation was taken in full and they certainly made themselves heard! The whole day was brilliant, all the boys behaved and to top it all off former DBC player Graeme  Shinnie scored his first home goal infront of the boys who will hopefully be repeating the same feat in years to come.

A massive thank you to Liam, the AFC Community trust and Aberdeen FC for making the whole day possible and giving the boys an experience they will always remember

Goals Galore

The players of Dyce Boys Club will take part in our annual fundraising event with this year being goals galore.

Every age group will play football for an hour and all the goals will be added to give the grand total which all parents, grandparents, friends and basically anyone who fancies giving it a go will try and predict and win a prize for the closest guess!

The event will take place at various dates and venues in the first week of March so be sure to keep an eye out for the boys coming your way with their sponsorship forms and help support the boys club and maybe win in the process.

A helpful hint we have 8 age groups to all take place but sorry I cant give anymore help than that!

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

Im sure everyone will be glad of a break but looking forward to starting the new year and getting back under way with many exciting developments happening on and off the pitch.

Dyce Boys Club non-competitive trophy evening 2014

2003's 2004's 2005's 2006s & 2007s Club News Featured
The Marriott Hotel, Dyce hosted another successful Dyce Boys Club event on Thursday 27th November.
The Club’s non-competitive age groups at 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2003 were presented with their individual trophies as a thanks from the Boys Club for their hard work over the past season.
The evening got off to a great start with a Heads and Tails competition for a novel prize of a large sweetie tower.  This was meant for the parents etc. but all the boys took part thinking they could win the sweetie prize.
Unfortunately they were mistaken and the sweetie tower was won by a parent, and rumor had it that he did share some of the sweeties with a few lucky boys, but only a few.
The large turnout of supportive parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers and friends saw each age group being handed their trophies by former Dyce BC player and coach with 15 years service to the club, who is now Scottish FA North Region Development Officer and Aberdeen FC Community Coach, Liam Duncan.
The Clubman of the Year trophies were handed over by Spencer Buchan of Club sponsor AVC Media to Rhys Clark, 2003s, Zane Laird, 2004s and Matthew Philip, 2005s. The boys were delighted with their awards but were quick to acknowledge their teammates who supported them in achieving these awards.
The final presentation of the evening was to Rhys Clark who was awarded his medal for five years service to the boys club and we hope in 5 years to be rewarding his commitment and loyalty again
Here he is with some of the coaches which have helped him along his career with the club

All the players with their eager and shiny washed faces were on their best behaviour and a successful evening was completed.
Well done to all the boys and coaches for another successful season and we look forward to next year

Len Nicol presented with prestigious award, the A&DJFA Raymond Kelly Memorial Award

Len joined Dyce Boys Club in 1980, the year the Club was formed. Following the untimely passing away of the Club’s co-founder, Eddie Mannall Jnr. in 1980, Len was invited to help coach the Club’s very first team, the U13s, by the Club’s co-founder Alan King and coach Eric Mannall.

As Dyce Boys Club grew, Len has managed/coached various U13s and U18s teams and is now back at the start, assisting in coaching the Club’s 4 v 4 non-competitive age groups. This is very much a pet project for Len as along with Eric Mannall, he was instrumental in setting up Dyce BC’s annual summer event “Coaching in the Community”.

He has been a member of Dyce Boys Club’s Management Committee since day one and, since taking over the role of Club Treasurer in late 1980, has ensured the Club’s finances are kept on the straight and narrow.  The late Gerald Kelly, of the now defunct Sunnybank A, quoted “You may or may not win leagues, local or Scottish Cups, but with Lenny as Treasurer your books will always be 100% right and always balanced”.  Len is known as being “canny” (or sometimes referred to as tight fisted) with the Club’s money.

Len is the one that arranges with Aberdeen City Council, and others, the booking and payment of the Club’s seven age group training lets.  He arranges the sending of letters and collection of the Club’s fees from over one hundred parents and ensures the Club’s SYFA and A&DJFA affiliation forms are sent along with the obligatory cheques.

Len always oversees any sponsorship deals which could benefit the Club and makes sure any request letters are written in the appropriate tone.

Len is in charge of organising the Club’s fund raising corporate dinners every two years by booking the hotel, entertainment and MC along with arranging the ticket sales, raffle prizes and auction items.  Included in this work is overseeing the whole evening to ensure it runs smoothly.

Len identified early that Dyce Boys Club’s playing and training facilities needed improving and was a leading member of the Dyce Sports and Leisure Development Trust which, for a few years, tried to get Aberdeen City Council to develop the area surrounding the football pitch at Pitmedden Park, Dyce for football and other sports, but to no avail.  This certainly turned Len’s black hair to a nice shade of grey but subsequently, he was successful with his efforts in persuading Aberdeen City Council to grant the Club a lease for the football pitch at Pitmedden Park, Dyce.

His efforts also ensured the Club gained its Enhanced clubCap Accreditation from Aberdeen City Council and its SFA Quality Mark Standard and Development Awards.

Len’s vision knew that these latter awards would provide benefits for the Club and, with his hard work and the support of the SFA North Region’s Graeme Sutherland and Mark Slater, the applications to the Scottish Football Partnership and the Scottish Governments Cashback for Communities were successful.  These two projects will provide Dyce Boys Club with 1) two changing room containers and one storage container at Pitmedden Park and 2) a 3G pitch at Central Park, Dyce, which will also be used by other community sports clubs.

Although not prominent on the juvenile football pitches of Aberdeen any longer, Len’s background efforts, both administrative and financial, are ensuring Dyce Boys Club will continue to flourish and its players continue to develop.

Len was a good footballer back in the black and white TV days.  If anyone remembers Charlie Cooke, then Len was the juvenile/amateur equivalent.  Therefore his coaching skills are based on skill development.

Len was presented with the award at the A&DJFA AGM by Moira Kelly, the late Raymond Kelly’s wife.
