GFR WEEKLY UPDATE
AFTER a hard-earned victory on the road at Dalbeattie, Gala Fairydean Rovers have no fixture this weekend, but there are plenty of big games coming up as the team continue the climb up the Lowland League table. Edinburgh University are the visitors to the 3G Arena on Saturday, November 18 and the following Saturday EDU Sports Academy will make their first ever appearance at Netherdale. Both league games kick off at 3pm.
Premier Club cards apply for these matches.

Despite playing a team from a higher division, the under 13s gave a good account of themselves in the South East Region Cup at the 3G Arena on Sunday. Edinburgh South opened the scoring in first half injury time. As Gala fought hard to get back into the game, they were caught out on the break in the second half with the visitors eventually winning 5-0.
