SMiSA AGM 2008 & Yearly Accounts

Image SMiSA wishes to announce that the trust's AGM will be held this Saturday, November 1st from 11:45am until 2pm, before the game against Hibs at Penny Lane (formerly known as Suburbia), Shuttle St, Paisley.

Members should have received a copy of the annual accounts for the year ended 30th November 2007 via post, and these will be presented to the membership for acceptance at the meeting.

The meeting will as in past years, take place in 2 halves with the first to deal with trust affairs, before it is joined by members of St. Mirren FC's board for a general open debate during the second.

Members are also reminded that they can bring along a guest to attend the meeting if they wish.

Question & Answer Night - 18th September

ImageSMiSA will be holding a Question & Answer night with St. Mirren FC on Thursday, 18th September in the Barony Suite of the Glynhill Hotel, Renfrew.

As part of the evening’s proceedings, the club have been invited to make a presentation on the new stadium, which the trust understands the club’s general manager Brian Caldwell will be making.  Gus MacPherson will be on hand to take questions on team affairs, as well as club Chairman Stewart Gilmour.

Tickets for the evening, which starts at 7pm, are now on sale at Provan Sports, Causeyside St. Paisley, at the price of £3 per person.  SMiSA members will be receiving a postcard invitation to the event and can pay at the door on the night, on production of their postcard, at a reduced price of £2.

These events are always well-attended and are a rare opportunity to put questions direct to those in charge of the club, so make sure to get a ticket as soon as possible!

SMiSA Player of the Year Event 2008


After what was a disappointing result and performance in Saints’ final home Saturday game of the season in being held to a goalless draw against Gretna, SMiSA held its 2008 Player of the Year night this past Saturday on the 10th of May at Suburbia in Shuttle St Paisley.

The event was, as last year’s, well-attended by players including Hugh Murray, Ian Maxwell, David Van Zanten, Gary Mason, Will Haining, Andy Dorman, Billy Mehmet, Craig Dargo & Franco Miranda among many others, as well as the management team of Gus MacPherson & Andy Millen.

Saints Aid 7 - Player Change + Event Itinerary

ImageIn an unfortunate turn of events, one of our bidders has had to pull out of Saints Aid 7, this Sunday.  Mark Syme, who was due to play in the Home #5 position, has suffered an injury and won't be able to play as a result.  His place will be taken by Alan Wardrop, who has generously offered to match Mark's bid of £300.

Everyone at SMiSA would like to wish Mark all the best in his recovery, and thank Alan for taking up the place.

We have also compiled an event itinerary for the players so that they know what to expect this Sunday.  For full information, please click the 'Read More' button.

Saints Aid 7 - Competition Winners

ImageToday SMiSA can confirm that the competitions for the remaining places in Saints Aid 7, which will take place on Sunday May 18th, have had their winners drawn.

The Paisley Daily Express competition for the home 12 shirt was won by Stuart Baungally.  As Stuart had already bought the home 14 place in the event, he has kindly donated that #14 jersey on to Duncan Johnston, so he can take up his #12 one.

The Official Site competition for the away 12 shirt, was won by Graeme Ogg, and the Black & White competition for the away 14 shirt, was won by "Frank McGarvey' wonky legs".

SMiSA would like to thank the PDE, the official site and B&W, for all their help in publicising what should be a great event on the 18th of May, as well as everyone who entered the 3 competitions.  We would also of course, like to offer our congratulations to the 3 lucky winners and wish them a happy & enjoyable time on the 18th.

Saints Aid 7 - Event Sells Out + Competitions Go Live!

ImageThe 7th Annual Saints Aid event sold out this morning, with the last available shirt being sold.  This means that the auction for places has had to close early!

We at SMiSA want to thank everyone who took the time to bid for a place, and to congratulate the 23 lucky winners who will take to the pitch on Sunday, May 18th for what is sure to be a memorable occasion.

While we do not anticipate any of the 23 winners to cancel, in the unlikely event that they do, the auction will be reopened for a brief period to allow people to go for the available place.

3 places do however remain open - in 3 special competitions run by our friends at the Paisley Daily Express, the Official St. Mirren Website, and Black & White  These competitions are for the Home 12, Away 12 and Away 14 places respectively.
