The online auction site that we use to host some of our range of goods have recognised our recent number of postings and awarded us a milestone mark.
The Trust have a stock old Falkirk FC HOME and AWAY programmes from this and previous seasons for sale at £2 each. Also have some rarely available team sheets and after match stats sheets to compliment these. Visit our online shop which has a stocklist of all our programmes for browsing
One sought after publication was the last home edition versus Dundee Utd in the CIS Cup on Tue 25/09/07 as it contained a "Setanta" article submitted by our BairnsTrust Chairman and Boardroom Rep. The "pulling power" stretches to the matchday programme as well!
In addition, BairnsTrust have obtained a large quantity of surplus home programmes from the past few seasons from the Club for an excellent, discounted rate. Now collated into “Bargain Bundles.” These bundles proved popular before and it’s anticipated this new stock will disappear as quick.
At the recent Stirlingshire Cup Final game on Tuesday 09/10/07, BairnsTrust were able to procure a few of the programmes as well as teamsheets and unique player complimentary passes. Visit our stall to purchase a set.
The programmes for sale at the stall are received by generous donations from numerous persons and are not from hospitality as has been suggested. The Trust gratefully acknowledge donations from the private collections of J Gardiner, P Mosson, C Christie, M Ritchie, D Paterson, A Totten and periodically from stewards, BairnsTrust Members and Committee. These such gestures are much appreciated and provide the Trust with a valuable income stream.

Falkirk FC has allowed BairnsTrust to become an Official Matchday Programme vendor using our stall on the concourse in the Main Stand at home games as the point of sale. We will cater for those who wish to buy INSIDE the Stadium prematch and in return the Trust will receive the standard “sellers fee” in return. This is proving a great success so far. We urge Members to purchase their copy from the stall to allow the Club to monitor how successful and necessary this point of sale is.
Stocks have now been obtained of the rare "1957 Cup Winners Re-union Brochure" from author Michael White. Already half the stock has been snapped up. Again to purchase, intimate your interest via our email contact address

Negotiations already in place at the stall to stock Michael's new book that will be out in time for Christmas. This will be the third volume in the series covering Falkirk's history by season from the end of volume two up to the present.
The BairnsTrust 2nd Representative in the Falkirk Boardroom discussion has been rumbling on since our election at the end of last season. Your Trust Committee have spent many hours pouring over the legal side of things and were very close to an agreement. A setback occurred at the last FFC Board meeting in September, but we hope your elected delegate will be in position after the October Board meet.
Friday 09/11/07 sees our good friend Silly Connolly over from Ireland for Children in Need on the Saturday. Silly has been commissioned to write the Scottish Children in Need Charity single and will be performing it at Celtic Park that day. The Trust could have a show on the Friday evening at the Stadium with TV cameras present. Entertainer Adam Quest is also a possibility and we are in negotiations with Alchemy Inns Ltd that this could be the opening event of the 1st floor function suite.
