Prestonpans is Next Stop

Fans are reminded that our next Lowland League date is this Saturday, 1st April, when the team will travel to Prestonpans for a match up against Preston Athletic at Pennypit Park.

This game has a 3:00pm kick-off. The encounter should have gone ahead on Saturday 4th February but heavy overnight rain led to a waterlogged pitch and a Saturday morning pitch inspection failed to get the referee’s approval.

Shire will be hoping to do the double over Preston Athletic this season. The reverse fixture at Ochilview in November ended in a 6-2 victory for John Sludden’s team with David Grant grabbing the headlines, and the match ball, after scoring four of Shire’s six goals.

There was a very impressive number of Shire supporters who made the trip to Hawick on Saturday to cheer the team on to a 4-2 victory and all the players and coaches are hoping to see as many supporters as possible at Pennypit Park this coming weekend.

Your support will make a big difference to the team so, if you can, please make the effort to come along. The Supporters Club will be running a bus to the game so please give Sandy Nimmo a call on 07803 708119 to book your seat.
