About Ballingry United

Ballingry Rovers F.C. were a Scottish junior football club based in Glencraig, Fife. Their home ground was Ore Park.

The club was founded in 1952 by Mr Andrew and Mrs Janet Clark of Ballingry Road with the aid of Jean Coron, originally playing at the King George VI Park in Crosshill. A successful amateur side for many years, the club stepped up to the junior grade in 2004. Their record in ten years of junior football was P 396, W 171, D 69, L 156, F 780, A 725.

The SJFA restructured prior to the 2006–07 season, and Rovers found themselves in the twelve-team East Region, Central Division. They finished third in their first season in the division and won the championship the following campaign.

The team were managed between October 2014 and their demise by former Aberdeen defender Willie Garner.

Coach's Bio: Paul Cockayne

Ballingry's manager, Paul Cockayne, is happy to say that he has led an interesting life.  He has not set foot on the moon or sailed single-handed round the world in a teacup, but nevertheless, in a small way, he feels content as he looks back from what is his 62nd year in existence.

Music has been a major part of his life, and his love of jazz (he plays vibes and piano) once found him on stage with a very drunk Humphrey Lyttleton.  Less auspicious were his experiences of providing backing music to performing dogs and a telelpathic chicken.

His games playing has led to some small success at bridge (two cups currently adorn his mantlepiece) - many hours playing cricket have yielded a lifetime batting average under five, although he does have a claim to fame in once having been responsible for conceding 8 runs from a single ball.

After a lengthy career in IT, Cockayne has latterly retrained as a counsellor and has met some amazing people who have left him with a wealth of stories to not tell for confidentiality reasons.

One story he does like to tell is of the time he was greeted by a woman in the local shopping centre.  She looked very familiar but Cockayne was unable to place her.  Rather than admit his failings, he decided to bluff it out, hoping to pick up some clues in the conversation as to who this person was.  Sadly, no clues were forthcoming, and eventually the woman realised.  "You haven't got the faintest idea who I am, have you?" she said.  "No", Cockayne replied, "I'm really sorry but I haven't".  She looked a bit affronted, which was quite understandable.  "I'm Dawn, your ex-wife", she revealed.
