This coming weekend sees the highs and lows of a cup weekend in October as well as the North and South of it all.
The club has 3 teams out this weekend in cup competition. On the ladies side the first team take on Kelburne in Glasgow on Saturday with a 3pm push back. Once back up the road they then need to consider getting back to Edinburgh on the Sunday for a 1.30 push back on the Sunday in the Scottish Cup against Inverleith. The ladies lost 2-0 at home in the league last weekend to Inverleith so an improved performance is required even if with a much changed eleven. The ladies 2s found the challenges of getting a team to Inverness at the start of the Holiday period just too much and made the wise decision not to travel.
The men’s first team have only one game this weekend in the league on Saturday away in Inverness to Highland. The men’s 2s are the other team in action and somehow by hook or by crook have got a side to travel to Peebles in the district cup on Sunday.
If you think a long trip to Ellon is tough spare a thought for the couple of guys travelling to Inverness on Saturday and then helping the 2s out on Sunday in Peebles. Theses guys are wanderers in action as well as name.
