GFR WEEKLY UPDATE
LOWLAND LEAGUE - NO GAME
DUE to East Stirlingshire being involved in a Scottish Cup replay, Gala Fairydean Rovers have no game this weekend.
The vouchers given out at the Elgin City cup tie on Saturday as part of a 2 for 1 deal will still be valid when East Stirling's
game at Netherdale is re-arranged so please hold onto them.
The next home game for GFR is on Saturday, November 5, when Spartans visit the 3G Arena.
The under 13s travelled to Dunbar on Sunday and despite leading 2-1 midway through the first half a poor spell allowed Dunbar to score three goals in eight minutes to lead 4-2 at the break.
A small improvement followed in the second half but the damage had been done and further defensive lapses meant that Dunbar ran out 7-4 winners with the Gala goals coming from Kerr Johnston and a Damien Konowalski hat trick. Work to be done but some positives to be taken from the game, particularly Gala's refusal to give in. The team are at home to Steins Thistle this Sunday at the 3G Arena in the 3rd round of the Scottish Cup. Kick off is at 12.30p.m.
The under 14s recorded a hard fought 2-1 win at Portobello on Sunday.
This Sunday the team are at home to Edinburgh South CFC. Kick off at the 3G Arena is 10.30 am.
The under 15s were in fine form on Sunday winning 6-3 at Bonnyrigg Rose. This Sunday they travel to pl;ay Musselburgh Athletic. Transport times to be given at training.
The under 15s Colts were also victorious with a 2-1 win at Currie Star. This Sunday the Colts play Edinburgh South CFC at the 3G Arena, kick off 2p.m.
The under 16s kept up their recent fine form with a 4-1 victory away to Cramond on Sunday. This Sunday they entertain Blackhall Athletic at the Public Park. Kick off time to be confirmed.
The under 17s are at home to Musselburgh Windsor Blues in the Craig Gowans Memorial Cup this Saturday.
Kick off time at the 3G Arena is 12 noon.
HALF TIME DRAW
David Moffat from Tweedbank was the winner of the 50/50 half time draw at Saturday's Scottish Cup tie against Elgin City with ticket number 12330 which earned him £103.
NO tickets matched the numbers of 1, 14 and 16 in the weekly Gala Fairydean Rovers Lotto draw which means this weekend's estimated jackpot is £1,000.
Keith Wilkinson was the £100 winner in the weekly Gala Fairydean Rovers Bonus Ball competition with number 23.
Members of Gala Fairydean Rovers Youths are reminded the clocks go back at 2a.m. on Sunday. It means an extra hour in bed but we don't want those who forget turning up extra early at the 3G Arena on Sunday morning!
