Football Nation Cup: Holders head to Gretna

Posted on Friday, January 19th, 2018

Football Nation Cup holders Spartans head to Dumfries on Saturday looking to reach the last four of the tournament by defeating hosts Gretna 2008 and move one step closer to making it back to back silverware success for gaffer Dougie Samuel.

It took a last gasp goal from Blair Atkinson to separate the sides in the Lowland League back in September when substitute ‘Sid’ popped up at the back post to secure what looked like an unlikely three valuable points.

A similar outcome of course would be sufficient to satisfy the aims of the Ainslie Park side however the Raydale Park men will have undoubtedly done their homework to seek revenge and emulate their narrow League Cup semi final win at the same venue in 2016.

Kick-off is at 3pm and played to a finish.  A few seats are still available on the team bus, please contact Mark on 0776 4149767 to book.
