Saints keen to get ball rolling!

After six Saturdays without a game things are looking up for the visit of Vale of Leven in the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup 3rd Round game at Milton Park on Saturday (January 8).

The snow has almost gone in and around Banchory, however, Milton Park still has a blanket of snow on the pitch.

On New Year’s Eve there was still 2.5 inches, but that has now reduced to 1 inch at the Banchory end, with grass peeping through at the Crathes end.

The club is hoping the milder weather will continue and with a freshening wind for the rest of the week, the snow should disappear by Saturday.

Kick Off is at 1.45pm and if the game ends in a draw after 90 minutes the replay will be the following week ( January 15) at Millburn Park, Alexandria.

If the game produces a result either way, Saints will play Dyce Juniors on the 15th in the GA Engineering Inter Region Cup 2nd Round at Milton Park.
