Spartans vs Spartans this Saturday

Posted on Thursday, July 30th, 2009

It is an all Spartans affair for the 2nd time this pre-season on Saturday 1st August as Spartans Seniors take on Spartans Juniors.

Mark Lamb’s team is so far unbeaten since becoming a Junior side and go into this match following impressive victories over Stirling University, Peebles, Civil Service Strollers then Kircaldy YM to win the Eddie Queen Memorial Shield. The Junior side includes several former Spartans senior players including Kenny Young & Ollie Anthoni. Key players Jordan Steele and Keith Boyes are both injured and will miss the game as the juniors play their last friendly before their season starts next weekend away to Newtongrange Star.

Mike Lawson and Sam Lynch will be looking to make final adjustments to their team with one eye firmly on their opening game of the season on August 8th against Whitehill. Alex King remains injured however all others players should be available. New summer signings Kevin Sivewright, Sean McAuley, Phil McKibben could feature as well as Michael Moffat and Adam Perry who both played in Mark Lamb’s team last season.

With both teams seasons starting on August 8th this should be a very entertaining game with both sides looking to perform at their very best.

The match is due to kick off at 12:30 on the main pitch at Ainslie Park.
