Pre season update

Posted on Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

It looks like a fantastic July for both our Mens and Womens teams.  The mens team start their pre-season friendlies with an away game at Arbroath, scene of our most famous away win in the Scottish Cup.  The ko is 3pm as we try to emulate the 4 – 1 scoreline of January 2004.

4th goal celebrations

Celebrating the 4th goal

The following weekend sees our pre-season tourney at the Academy on the stadium grass pitch.  Our first game is a 3.15ko against Blyth Spartans on Saturday 18th July.  We will then play Hamilton Accies or Raith Rovers on Sunday 19th July.  The following weekend we have another double header.  Saturday 25th sees a friendly against Wallsend BC on the synthetic pitch with a 3pm ko.  The Mark Burns testimonial against Falkirk is on Sunday 26th with a 2pm ko.

Our Womens team start their preparation with two games on the synthetic pitch.  On Sunday 19th July we play Newcastle United WFC who finished 4th last season in the 1st division (below the top league).   On Sunday 26th July we play losing FA Cup finalists and 1st Division champions Sunderland WFC.  Both should be great games.
