Chairman Jonathan Jones said, “We’re really excited about this opportunity of cross-border competition against these Scottish teams. It is a welcome new addition to our season for everyone involved. As a club we have an old friendship with Watsonians which we are looking forward to renewing – the supporters are already looking at which match – or matches – they can organise trips to!”
Our away match with Newport, originally due to be played on December 28th, has been moved to January 31st with a 7:30 ko.
