The Hollytree Football Club are doing very well this season again. They have reached the quarter final of the Scottish Welfare League Cup, beating teams away at Aberdeen and Greenock.
The Football Club wish Ann and Raymond Harrison the very best of luck in their retirement and thank them for all their support over the years.
On behalf of the wider community we, the Community Council, also wish Anne and Raymond well in their retirement.

The Hollytree Football Club is doing very well this season and for a while were top of their League. They may have slipped to third but are now in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.
The team travelled to Stonehaven on Sunday 9th March for the quarter-finals and won 4 - 1. Two goals were scored by Captain Fraser Matheson and one by Jason Thomson and an own-goal by the opposition.
They are also through to the Eric Ward Memorial Cup.
Keep an eye on the local papers to see how we progress.
Come along to the Race Night on April 4th which we are running in aid of Fete funds.

Although we were at the top of the League at the early part of the season we are sitting 2nd now, although we haven't lost in the League since August. We will have played in the 3rd round of the Scottish Cup on 25th November. Results are in the local papers.
We will run a Race Night in the Holly Tree for club funds on Friday November 30th and we intend to run another at the end of February 2008 to raise money for the village fete.
• September 2007
When we reformed at the start of last year's football season we got off to a very shaky start but with some new players and more training and dedication, we ended the season with a few good wins and also managed to win the Stirling Trophy Centre Cup.
This season we hope to better our position and we started the season with a very close game with last year's league winners. Unfortunately Braehead beat us 3 - 2.
This season, as always, our strips and jackets are sponsored by Raymond Harrison of the Hollytree. Our bags are sponsored by Becool Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
There will be a report on our progress in the Alloa Advertiser every week.
