Yeah plan on going. Never been to Cliftonville so can tick it off my list.  Just 2 more grounds to get in Scotland afterwards.  Annan and East Fife.

Some really tasty odds on some games tommorow night.  Brora to beat Aberdeen and Cove Rangers to beat St.Johnstone looks a cracking double.

Cove to beat St Johnstone is a good shout, East Kilbride to beat St Mirren is another. Killie away to Barry Ferguson's Kelty Hearts should be good.

The Teacake beats the Caramel Wafer, Shirley.... Disnae outweigh it though. I wonder why, specifically, The Wafer' is the sponsor? I'm probably the only one mind.

Still think this would be better if they followed the EFL Cup model and played group games at this stage.

It would benefit the U21 players having more games and benefit some of the smaller clubs by getting extra gate revenue when they played the bigger clubs

Does it go to penalties? or a money-spinning replay :whistling:

No, it's a good question while lots are asking.

Another one for the teacake

 

Albion Rovers used to be sponsored by Tunnocks. Knew a trialist for them and I think he made the most of the teacakes and caramel wafers.

 

Suffice to say the pudding never got taken on

Not the only one. :2thumbsup:

 

The Tunnocks Challenge Cup would have sounded much better and a lot less Mickey Mouse. 

 

The Caramel Log is the best. Hate that shaving foam muck in the Teacake and Snowball.

Only one way to eat a Tunnocks Teacake

 

Take off the chocolate shell first with your teeth

Lick the cream out

Then finish off the biscuit base

Hearts U18s lost 1-4 to Everton earlier today.  Going by the very young Hearts side (mainly 2003/2004s) there will be a number of the slightly older ones at least on the bench tonight.

 

"Max" actually captained the side, which must be a bit of a first with a trialist as captain.

Is Hickey available for this one or is it some stupid rule where he is suspended from the game but it doesn't count towards serving his suspension?

 

Just had a look at the rules. I thought it had become an U21 competition, but bizarrely the age restriction for colt teams is players "who had not attained the age of 20 years on 31 December of the year before the year in which the relevant Season commences", along with a max of two overage players. So for example Kelby Mason who doesn't turn 21 until October is classed as an overage player. Also worth remembering players out on loan can play.

 

I think this means players available (excluding over age) are:

- GoalKeepers: Stones

- Defenders: Hickey, Burns, Baur, Petkov, Hamilton, Sandison

- Midfielders: Irving, Cochrane, McDonald, Smith, Ritchie (Morrison when back from injury)

- Forwards: Keena, Henderson

Plus all the academy players.

 

Unlikely Irving will play given he played on Sunday. I guess a similar logic applies to Hickey even if his suspension doesn't apply.

 

Sensible players to consider for the two overage spots might include one of the goalies, Brandon, Bozanic, Moore, Wigthon, Zanatta, Currie (if fit, lost track of his injuries).

Off to Linlithgow tonight to see how the boys do. Hopefully similar to last week's result.  Hamilton, Burns, Henderson, Keena and McDonald on reflection were best last week but hope Cochrane and Smith get going this time too.

Would've thought Oriam would be first preference, and failing that, a Junior pitch still within Edinburgh.

What Junior teams are there in Edinburgh? Prestonfield better surface than anywhere in Lothians, including Tynecastle,  at the moment.

Spartans, Paties Road, as mentioned Oriam. Even just a wee bit outside like Newtongrange or Bonnyrigg. Plenty decent pitches around, just thought Linlithgow was a bit out the way.

If Winchburgh tunnel not flooded, Linlithgow easily accessible. Handy for me! Hopefully a good turn out of West Lothian and Falkirk/Larbert jambos tonight.

Think challenge cup ties have to be on a registered ground and not a training center so that ruled oriam out

20 minutes from Edinburgh and a wonderful playing surface.  Great place to play and watch football.

Hopefully. Good opportunity for folk out that way to see the young lads I guess. 

 

I can't go anyway, but if I wasn't busy I doubt I could justify going through there from Mussy.

The outdoor astro pitch is the registered ground used by Heriot Watt University in the East of Scotland League, the same League as Linlithgow.

 

Linlithgow, however, is a licensed member of the SFA so that may be the difference.

The lower league teams normally play their reserves/fringe players against U20s so not surprising if he wasn't starting.
