Milton 2000s have completed a famous treble after beating Syngenta u15s 4-2 to win their cup final at the Indodrill Stadium in Alloa.
They lifted the cup – along with their regional cup and league – to complete the treble in what was a superb season for the team. Congratulations to the players and coaches from all at the club.

On Friday 4th March we held a Positive Coaching Scotland (PCS) evening at Forthbank. The session was delivered by Scott Kinross, Football Development Officer with Active Stirling.
The session was well attended by our 2001, 2002, 2003 & 2004 sections. The session forms part of the players football education and is very important in getting everyone to think about the sportsmanship within the game and that enjoying playing in a friendly and fair manner is more important than winning.
We hope the players enjoyed the evening and can use what they learned in a positive way in all their future training sessions and games.
Milton’s annual Speakers Night went down a storm last Saturday, with a superb turnout of 235 at Bannockburn Miner’s Welfare. The Milton faithful were rewarded with an excellent evening of entertainment from speakers Stewart Smith, John Gahagan and Joe Camey.
We would like to thank every single person who was involved with, or contributed to, our Speakers Night – without your support, we wouldn’t have a club. Here’s to the next 20.
In December 2015, Milton were awarded SFA Legacy status after a rigorous application process involving many areas of the club – becoming the 1st club in Stirlingshire and only the 9th team in Scotland to achieve Legacy status.
See what Stevie Reynolds, Pat Griffin and Josephine Rodger had to say after being awarded Legacy status by the Scottish Football Association.
