Spartans look to pick up the pace against Students

Posted on Friday, August 28th, 2015

Spartans complete a mammoth eight game August on Saturday when they welcome Edinburgh University to Ainslie Park for the Bank Holiday weekend clash.

Both sides have yet to find consistency in their results in the opening month of the Ferrari Packaging sponsored Lowland League which finds Spartans and the Students in the decidedly unfamiliar territory of mid to lower table slots.

The Peffermill based side head to the Academy on the back of a morale boosting double, including a narrow victory over Whitehill at Rosewell in midweek.

It was the same opposition were the last to fall two weeks ago against Dougie Samuel’s side who have been hampered by a plethora of injuries in the congested start to the season.   The treatment table had another visitor this week in the shape of Paul Thomson who is rated doubtful ahead of the University challenge.

The match kicks-off at 3pm.  Admission Adults £5, Concessions £3 and Under 16s Free.  Season Tickets are available on the gate, offering fantastic value for money at just £50 for Adults, £25 Concessions with all youths under 16 entitled to a complimentary ticket, offering affordable football for all.

SFPL fans can also purchase a Spartans a half-price season ticket by showing their own team’s brief at time of purchase.
