Citylets Scottish Cup - Round 2

05 Jun
Glenrothes officials are gearing up to host what they have labelled the biggest event in their history today when they square up to Grange in Round Two of the Citylets Scottish Cup.

The Fifers may have found life tricky in the top flight since being promoted to the Eastern Premiership, however they believe the knock-out scenario provides the scope for them to pull off a major upset at Gilvenbank.

A club spokesman said: “With the weather forecast looking very positive, we want to put on a show - both on and off the field of play.

“We are looking forward to taking on the league champions and also having a fun-filled family day with lots of attractions such as refreshments, a barbecue and bouncy castles.”

Holders Arbroath entertain West of Scotland, whose Hamilton Crescent ground with stage the Final in August.

Home skipper Marc Petrie returns to the fray after missing yesterday’s league tussle with Falkland to attend a wedding.

He said: “This will be the first time this season that we will be able to put out our first choice line-up, and we know we will need to be at out best to meet the challenge of West and maintain our hopes of keeping the trophy.”

Also back in action for Arbroath is veteran Greig Peal, while Craig Camerson and Matthew Hurst miss out.

Heriot’s will be aiming to make ground advantage count against Ferguslie at Goldenacre, while Clydesdale are sure to start as favourites as they go into battle with old rivals Uddingston at Titwood.

The pick of the other ties is at Scroggie Park, where Falkland welcome Carlton.
