    Freemasons from Fife in Scotland have entered into a sponsorship deal with a local football club, which sees the S & C appear on the sleeve of their tops.

    I am not sure that would fly here. As I understand it only a MM may wear the S&C in the MM configuration. Of course there is no preventing others from wearing it on their own, but I think we would be in trouble for putting it on uniforms of a team of non MMs.

    Heck, we have china from 2 Lodges after our merger which happened 5 years ago that we can't get rid of because it has the S&C. Can't sell them or donate them to anything other than another Lodge or MM. But what other Lodge would want china with the name of a defunct Lodge?

    In the UK, there's a ton of old lodge stuff on ebay.

    The S&C has been used in many advertising roles on products that have nothing to do with Freemasonry. It was all over the place in the 19th c. I don't think anyone will mistake a youth FC for nefarious Masons, though! Heck, I want one of those jerseys.

    Unfortunately they are a youth team, they don't do adult sizes.

    Celtic United, is that an American team?

    Is that what were doing today? Soccer hooligans? Lol. Rangers play Celtic the end of this month. We shall see who's talking smack then!

    Sounds good!
    Honestly, I’m too busy with English premier league to watch other stuff regularly. Eight more to go and it’s too close to call.

    Brother Mark, your humour is lost on me.

    It may not be an official name but it’s certainly what they were known as when I lived there. Even Rod Stewart called them that.

    He loves his Rangers, though. I saw him at Ibrox in ‘83, kicking balls out to the crowd and wearing their kit.

    I just looked at the league table... Rangers are going to have to have quite a day to catch Celtic.

    LOL, doesn't matter to me who wins or loses, I don't like football.
