Today Scone travel to Stoneyburn for the DJ Laing East Region Cup and a 2.30pm kick off. The team will be leaving from our home sponsors the Wheel Inn this morning but for anyone making their own way there the address is here. Stoneyburn currently play in the McBookie.com Premier League South where they currently sit 4th in the League so are sure to be a tough test for the Jaggies who sit 5th in the Premier League North with 3 points more than today’s hosts. We are unsure when the 2 sides last met however Scone Chairman Derek Adam has fond memories of scoring from the half way line in a previous Cup encounter, although this was over 25 years ago! For those unable to attend today’s game, coverage will be on our sister twitter account @jaggieslive and on the website available here from 2.15pm and we hope to bring you a match report & video highlights over the weekend. Remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel available here to be kept updated when highlights are available.
Off the park this week, we were delighted to welcome some of our sponsors to Scone: A & S Properties, J D Simpson painter & decorator & Tay Models to see the new strips & training kit and we thank them again for their support. The management team also popped in to see Balajee Spice Scone & Bridgend (pictured) who are sponsoring the coaches kit. Pictured are Derek Lawson, Navjot Krishan & Paul Farquharson.
Tickets remain on sale for the Club’s Sportsperson’s Dinner with guest speakers John Gahagan & Tam McManus at the Civil Service Club on Saturday 8th September. Tickets are available via the committee & players and are priced at £40 per head.
There is only one Premier League North game today with Forfar Albion travelling to Brechin Vics with everyone else on Cup duty.
