Fixtures for 25th and 26th October

This weekend sees a break for our Senior Men's team as they have no fixture this weekend. There are also no Division 2 fixtures on this weekend. The Junior Men and the Cadet Men are on Scottish Cup duty with the Juniors playing St Mirren away and the Cadet Men at home to Glasgow City. With St Mirren undefeated in the league and Glasgow City at the top of the Cadet Men league, these are two tough fixtures so your support would be much appreciated. The Senior Women and Cadet Women are both at Holy Rood on Sunday to play Polonia in the league. Still no fixture for the Junior Women! Our under 12s and under 14s are also in action on Sunday.

Our very own BFG


The Club had an unusual request that led to a great day out for one of our Senior players. We were contacted by Prospect Bank School in Edinburgh which is for children with complex additional support needs.

They have been studying Jack and the Beanstalk and wondered if we could organise a player visit to prove that "not all tall people want to grind their bones"! We sent our friendliest and tallest player Simon Flockhart along to meet them and you can see the results here on the school blog.

The kids seemed to have loved Simon's visit almost as much as he enjoyed going!

First round of the Regional Development League 28th September

Our Under 14 boys and girls start their RDL campaign on Sunday 28th September and as only the first meeting of teams in the league counts towards the league (all other times the teams play each other they are counted as friendlies), they need to get off to a strong start. We are waiting confirmation that the league will definitely proceed in this way. The games are in Stirling this weekend and are as follows :

U14 girls at Wallace High School

  • 9:15-10:15 v Boroughmuir Blaze
  • 12:15-13:15 v Falkirk Fury

U14 boys at Stirling High School

  • 10:45-11:45 City of Edinburgh 2 v Boroughmuir Blaze 1
  • 13:45-14:45 City of Edinburgh 2 v East Lothian Dragons

  • 18:45-19:45 City of Edinburgh 1 v Edinburgh Lions

Good luck to all our teams!
