Post: Weekend Preview – 7th October

Nearly a full card of games on for Clydesdale and Clydesdale Western which includes both 1st XI’s at home:

M1s vs. Uddingston 1s (4.30pm, H); M2s vs. Edinburgh Uni 2s (4.00pm, A); M3s vs. Hillhead 4s (12.30pm, A); M4s vs. Hillhead 6s (12 noon, H); M5s vs. Hillhead 7s (1.45pm, H)

L1s vs. GHK 1s (1.30pm, H); L2s vs. L3s (3.00pm, H); L4s vs. Hillhead 2s (2.30pm, A); L6s vs. GHK 3s (1.30pm, A)

Our Men’s 1s, our last game of the day at Titwood on Saturday, take on Uddingston from 4.30pm.  Both teams picked up vital wins last weekend and will hope to continue in a similar vain of form – ‘Dale beating Edinburgh Uni 2-1, whilst Uddy beat Inverleith 7-2 on the Saturday but then losing 3-2 to Grove Menzieshill the following day.  The rest of our Men’s teams will be hoping to bounce back from disappointing losses.  The 2s take on Edinburgh Uni 2s at Peffermill (4.00pm PB), the 3s are also away to Hillhead 4s from 12.30pm.  The 4s and 5s play at home against Hillhead 6s and 7s respectively – a noon start for the 4s, 1.45pm at Hutchesons’ Grammar School for the 5s.

The Ladies teams are back in action this weekend, following last weekend’s Inter District tournament.  The Ladies 1s will be itching to bounce back from their nightmare defeat to Edinburgh Uni two weeks ago.  They face GHK 1s – now coached by former 1st XI captain Susan McGilveray.  1.30pm pushback for the 1s before the Ladies 2s and 3s face off at 3.00pm.  The Ladies 4s play away to Hillhead 2s from 2.30pm, whilst the 6s visit GHK 3s (1.30pm PB).  No action for the Ladies 5s who played last weekend.

Good luck to all of our teams this weekend.  Afterwards, from 7pm, the club are hosting a Ceilidh.  All fundraising will go towards Clydesdale Western 1st XI and their involvement in European competition later on in the season.  Tickets are still available behind the bar or you can speak to your captains about buying a ticket.
