Club Update Aug 24th

It has been great to see so many boys down at training and making themselves available so long before the start of term. The hard work the boys have put has been clearly evident in the performances so far and had it not been for a last gasp equaliser in Glasgow and some sloppy finishing in Gretna our points tally after 3 Lowland league games could look a lot healthier.

The big one though was the William Hill Scottish Cup this weekend where despite being priced at 9/1 to win before the match, we felt unfortunate to come away with just a draw against the Scottish Junior Cup Champions. It was a superb performance that got a nice wee right up in the Scottish Sun that included some Alan Hansen-esc insight from midfield dynamo Dan “big time” Ward. The replay is due to be played at Pennypit Park at 3pm on Saturday 24th. It would be great to see as many faces as possible, past and present, down to support the boys.
