Scottish Cup update

Well it's been quite a week in getting organised for the trip to Edinburgh City, with committee, managers and players all busy with the last minute arrangements. I guess many text and voice minutes have been used in the last week!

The Sun newspaper very generously organised the bus for this trip, which arrived in Wick on Friday afternoon completed with; reclining seats, tables, hot and cold drinks dispenser, toilet, DVD player, air conditioning, oh - and a driver, wheels etc as well.

The bus set-off at 5:30pm after a photo-shoot and first stop was Helmesdale for some dinner, and then onto Perth for an over-night stay, in a nice hotel complete with leisure facilities.

The boys were up early for breakfast and then a light pre-match lunch at around 11:30am on Saturday morning. The weather is not very nice and the Forth Road bridge is closed to high-side vehicles, so they leave the hotel slightly early as there is a bit of a detour ahead on route to Meadowbank stadium.

They are due into Meadowbank at around 13:30am, later than planned due to the unexpected detour, and from there its un-pack the bus, warm-up and then down to business with kick-off at 3:00pm.

The whole county is behind the lads today, so good luck from home-base, and let's hope you can do us proud, win, lose or draw, with a good performance.
