THEY’VE waited patiently for a week – and tonight Forfarshire will throw the biggest party ever seen at Forthill as they celebrate their first ever top-flight league title.
The squad will make the dash north from Edinburgh immediately after the last match of their triumphant campaign against Stew-Mel, and if the hosts think that Forfs will have their focus anywhere other than Inverleith, they should re-consider their thoughts, because champion skipper Umair Mohammed has made it crystal clear that they are keen to keep up the momentum from last weekend’s clinching win against Carlton.
Elsewhere, the protagonists in tomorrow’s Scottish Cup Final will be intent on warming up for the Meikleriggs showdown with wins under their belts and form would suggest that Carlton and Heriot’s will do just that.
The former will be regarded as dead certs to account for relegated Aberdeenshire at Grange Loan and though the latter will have more of a battle on their plate, they should be too strong for Stoneywood-Dyce at Peoples Park.
Deposed champs Grange make the short hop to Barnton to square up to RH Corstorphine.
Watsonians and Arbroath have experienced roller coaster seasons to put it mildly and each will want to end on an upward curve as they turn their minds to becoming more serious contenders next summer.
