Weekend Preview – 27th/28th October

A near full card of games over the weekend including both 1s teams in action at home as well as an inter-club match up.

The L1s have Anna Hoolaghan added to unwanted injury list alongside captain, Ali Howie and Jen Eadie.  That aside, the home side still have a strong squad selected for Saturday’s match.
