We’ll Keep The Blue Flag Flying High

It’s a huge weekend as our city goes rugby daft for a couple of days as 7’s fever takes grip and then on Sunday night we face Celtc at Ibrox.

Last weekend provided another tough lesson as a number of young players were asked to come in and do a job for us as we suffered from multiple injuries and suspensions. In fact 3 players that started for us last weekend all played at last year’s Soccer 7’s; Ross Perry, Rhys McCabe & Andrew Mitchell and to be fair they all did very well. If you add McGregor, Little & Davis, then more than half of the starting line-up have all played at the Soccer 7’s!

Thankfully both Bocanegra & Goian are back from suspension plus there are rumours Whittaker & Lafferty may also return following long term injures.

It will be a real test for us, as if Motherwell fail to win on Saturday, it could mean Celtc could win the title at Ibrox if they were to defeat us.

We all know our home form has not been great but I for one think the players will rise to the challenge as this game will take on much more than a simple 3 points, so I say bring it on!

For the Red & Black scarves we ordered they have still not arrived as yet, but we are hoping they will be here tomorrow as ideally we would have them for the game on Sunday.

For those going along to the rugby the actual cup final is due to start at 7pm on the Sunday night and our match will kick-off at 8pm, so there should be just enough time to make it along to Amici for kick-off following the cup presentation scheduled for 7:25pm.

Finally have a good weekend and hopefully see you all in Amici for the game on Sunday night!
