Oban Emerald CSC
Name of CSC?
Oban Emerald CSC started in 1987, 2012 is our 25th Anniversary. The club is a member of the Affiliation of registered CSC.
Where are you based?
Oban, the Monaco of the North.
Do you run a bus?
We run a bus to all games home and away. We recently bought our own 17 seater minibus. So far this has proven to be a worthwhile venture. The boys in the club have really come together on this with some of them fixing, scratches, sorting out the sound system, aquiring new headrests etc all off their own back.

We hold our meetings in the Balmoral Hotel in Oban.

Around the 50 mark at the moment, 20 season ticket holders. We have four on the committee.

Do you have any badges/scarf’s?
Yes we have club badges.
Any future events planned?
The club holds an annual end of season dance and have been entertained over the years by various bands such as Charlie and The Bhoys, Gary Og the Rising to name a few. We are hoping to raise money for charity later in the season through a sponsored cycle.
Best memory supporting Celtic with the CSC?
Winning the league at Tannadice a few years back but the Wembley tournament a few years back was special to all the members who were there. The stories from that weekend have gone down in Emerald history but never been heard by members that weren’t there, and thats they way it will stay.

1. Billy McNeil 2. Henrik 3. Willie Maley 4. Jimmy McGrory 5. John Thompson 6. Paul McStay 7. Charlie Tully 8.Tommy Burns 9. Jimmy Quinn 10.Stephane Bonnes. (Celtic UberLegend)

Do you have a favourite Celtic goal?
Henriks Goal against Boavista in the UEFA cup semi final has to be my all time favourite. Was an amazing night the party in Porto that night was unbelievable as Porto had qualified also, will always be special to me.
Total Celtic are committed in establishing a “Stephane Bonnes Brewery” in Oban, would you be willing to help?
Seeing as Stephane has a caravan here in Oban and he and Mrs Bonnes are regular visitors it only seems fitting that a Brewery should be established in his honour.
