Both teams are locked on the 26 point mark in the Lowland League table. A supporters bus will be running to this match departing from the clubrooms at 12.30p.m. The cost of the return journey is just £6.

CONGRATULATIONS to 2004 squad member Finn Douglas on his call-up to train with Scotland Under 14s in Glasgow. It is a tremendous honour for both the player and the club.
Under 14s coach Shane Greene said "Finn signed for the club last year from Melrose and has excelled as a striker for the 2004s. His power and speed have proven to be a real thorn in the side for opposition defences with over 30 goals already this season and those attributes have seen him excel at both rugby and athletics too".
"His willingness to listen and learn make him a pleasure to coach and he is fully deserving of the plaudits he is receiving."
A waterlogged pitch saw the under 13s game away to Arniston Rangers called off last Sunday. This Sunday the team is at home to North Berwick Colts in a league match. Kick off at the 3G Arena is 11am.
