Our league campaign takes a back-seat this weekend, as we host East Kilbride in the SPFL Trust Trophy.
Arguably an SPFL team in all but name, our opponents sit top of the Lowland League heading into the fixture. Michael Kennedy’s side are averaging around four goals per game, and their form is in stark contrast to ours – on paper anyway. No doubt Kilby will fancy their chances of causing a cup upset, and we will have to be on our mettle to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Kick off is 15:00 at Meadowbank Stadium
As per agreement between the two sides, admission prices are:
- Adults | £10
- Under 18s | £5
- Under 12s | £2
Tickets can be bought in advance, via our FanBase site, please click here
You can always pay at the gate, however please remember that Meadowbank Stadium is now completely CASHLESS.
Please be reminded that visiting supporters should access Meadowbank via the West Turnstiles, closest to the junction of London Road and Wishaw Terrace, and will be based in sections F and G. Home fans should use the East Gate, closest to the community Astro pitch. There is limited standing room for both sets of supporters, to the west and east of the stand respectively.
We continue with our all-white home kit tomorrow, with goalkeeper in all yellow. Our visitors will be in their traditional home colours of navy and gold halves, navy shorts and socks.

In our Lowland League days, fixtures against East Kilbride were common, however since our promotion, we have only faced them three times since 2015; the most recent ending in a 1-0 win for Kilby at Ainslie Park, in a League Cup group stage match back in July 2019. Prior to that, we had big win against them in the City Cup final, and another notable win, this time 3-2 against them at K-Park, almost exactly five years ago. Trailing 2-1 with six minutes to go, Alan Smith headed in two goals late on, to add to Blair Henderson’s opener, which saw us on our way to a Challenge Cup semi-final that season…
