One Final Challenge for Under 20s

Posted on Thursday, May 26th, 2016

The curtain gets set to come down on Les Atkinson’s Under 20 side’s season on Friday night when they take on Preston Athletic in the Final of the Challenge Cup at Peffermill Playing Fields (7.30pm KO).

In a season which has saw the predominately first year age grade side finish the league campaign in a plaudit winning runners-up spot behind Friday’s opponents, the top two go head to head for the fifth time this season with silverware awaiting the victors at the Edinburgh University grounds.

Spartans will be keen to avenge the Knockout Cup Semi Final defeat at the beginning of the month and will be looking to recreate the display that saw them overcome the Panners on their home turf last November, when Dylan Tait netted a hat-trick in a 2-4 win.


Admission: Adults £5, Concessions £2.
