I see that eight schoolchildren were shot at with a BB gun yesterday, in Church Street, Auchinleck.

Church Street is also where Labour MSP and Scottish Justice Minister Cathy Jamieson was given a traditional Ayrshire welcome (by this chap) on a visit to the local Co-Op.

UPDATE - via commenter dr cromarty, this :

"Police have been called to a junior football match in Ayrshire after reports that fans were fighting on the pitch. The violence flared at the game, between Cumnock Juniors and Auchinleck Talbot, which ended with a 3-0 victory for Achinleck.
Strathclyde Police confirmed that a disturbance had broken out at the game and that the incident was on going. The teams are playing a local derby game in the Emirates Junior Cup."

There was a riot at an Auchinleck Talbot game two weeks ago. Something is afoot. Or maybe its just always like that.

Junior football in Scotland is not children's football - it's adult amateur football.

Bumpkins. Unpleasant and potentially deadly bumpkins, for sure, but bumpkins nonetheless.
