We travel to play Gretna in next season’s South Challenge Cup

At last week’s East of Scotland League AGM the draw for next season South Challenge Cup was made. 

We received a bye in the first round and drew Gretna 2008 at Raydale in the second round.

The date for the game has yet to be confirmed.

Manager, Alex Cunningham, said “We really look forward to the trip to Gretna they are good side and play decent football.

“Our games against them last season were evenly matched with us winning away from home.

“We had to replay them when our home game was abandoned due to the unfortunate incident

in which Chris Milligan suffered a double leg break.

“We lost the replay 1-0, so with these results in mind I would envisage a close game down at Rydale”
