Today Scone travel to Forfar for the first game of the season in the new look McBookie.com Premier League North. Kick off is at 2:30pm at Guthrie Park, many thanks to Albion’s committee to agreeing to switch the venue as work continues at Farquharson Park. The last time these 2 sides met was back in February with Scone winning 4-0 on the way to back to back Top 6 finishes. Manager Derek Lawson told Jaggy News ahead of today’s game & upcoming campaign “Preseason has been good and we are delighted that the majority of last season’s squad have re-signed. We have signed a further 7 new players who have settled in well & will give us good competition for places. Forfar Albion have rebuilt their squad this year and I expect them to be a much improved side this year. The target for ourselves this season is to challenge again at the top end of the table and continue to develop young players and hopefully introduce more youth team players from Scone U19’s to the juniors“. If you are unable to make the game coverage will be on our sister twitter account and on the website from 2:15pm and we will bring you a match report and league summary over the weekend.
Over the summer break we have had a fantastic response to our player sponsorship with names going in the hat to be one of the shirt sponsors for this season’s new away strip. At Thursday nights committee meeting the draw was made (and shared via social media) at the Wheel Inn with Tay Models & J D Simpson being pulled out of the hat. Many thanks to all of our sponsors, we look forward to welcoming you at Farquharson Park over the coming season. For those who’s name wasn’t pulled out, a committee member will be in touch to confirm your sponsored player for season 2018/19. Any further enquiries regarding sponsorship please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
