Kick Off Tuesday 13th August – 7:00pm
Just three days since our opening day victory away to Dundee Violet, we host Fauldhouse United after their promotion to the East Premier League as South Division Champions.
The ‘Hoose opened their own campaign with a creditable 2-2 draw against the much fancied fife outfit Jeanfield Swifts, who are very experienced at this level.
With no injury worries carried over from the weekend, all eighteen of the players are in contention for what is expected to be a very competitive match. The visitors were well quoted over the Summer for one of the promotion spots due to their terrific 2012/13 campaign.
Assistant Manager Peter McIntyre said, “Last season at our old club we saw how good a side Fauldhouse are and eventually we finished second behind them in the league. We know plenty about them but with our full new team we’ll be hoping to have a few surprises for them. One thing’s for sure, it’ll be a very tough game and our players will need to be playing to their abilities to get the result.”
Kickoff is 7:00pm at Creamery Park. Entry is £5 with £2 for concessions. As for all league and friendly matches, KIDS GO FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.
Official match programmes are available, priced at £1.80.
