What can the Rose fans expect at Gala.

Are their decent eating and drinking establishments and how far from the railway station to the ground.

High Street 5 min walk from galashiels station.

Used to be a great night oot in Gala passing along various bars.

You'll enjoy yer visit.

They have a social club under the main stand. Used to be a great night oot in Gala along various bars. You'll enjoy yer visit.

Cheers nb. Should be a decent away support as it is somewhere we have never been and not far away either. May partake in a few light refreshments when we are there.

Away to Formartine United, Where??

I can feel a road trip coming on - with the bonus that my brother lives only 10 minutes away in Ellon !!!

Big incentive now to ensure the motorhome is fully fixed and ready for the trip - I could be away for a week :pepsi

One of those freak things but University of Stirling and Threave Rovers actually play each other in the league the week before, at Forthbank.

So many away trips v HL. My take:

BSC Glasgow v Auchinleck Talbot

very hard draw against the consistently best team in Junior football

Strathspey Thistle v Edinburgh University

long trip but winnable or at least possible to bring it back to Peffermill

Preston Athletic v Fort William

eminently winnable

Spartans v Coldstream

eminently winnable

Threave Rovers v University of Stirling

Stirling probably the happier of the two with this all-LL clash

Gala Fairydean Rovers v Linlithgow Rose

hard draw against one of the consistently strongest Juniors

Cumbernauld Colts v Glasgow University

plum draw of the round, eminently winnable

Nairn County v Selkirk

long trip and tough opposition but not a lost cause

Fraserburgh v Dalbeattie Star

long trip and decent opposition but possibilities

Wick Academy v Whitehill Welfare

long trip and tough opposition

Formartine United v Gretna 2008

long trip and very tough opposition - difficult draw

Was it fixed to give most o the ll teams honking away ties

Ground is just outside village of Pitmedden near Aberdeen. Bus from Aberdeen Bus station takes about 50 minutes and from painful experience does not have a toliet so not a wise idea to have to many pre bus beers in Aberdeen.

Think whitehill and star night do well actually.

Interesting odds in the big league game. Can't imagine city have been second favourites- or even odds against very often in the last twelve months

Would be interesting to know if the LL teams are travelling on the day , or going at least part of the way there the night before

Whitehill are setting off on Friday evening and stopping over in Inverness.

Not at all, BSC, Gala & Selkirk to get a replay at best. The rest at worst.

It's interesting to look over on the main Highland League forum, which is called FitbaNorth. There people are predicting 9 or 10 HL clubs to go through - given there are 4 all-HL ties plus people would except Cove to beat Banks o'Dee and Huntly to beat Hawick that would mean 3 or 4 wins in the 6 ties with LL opposition.

I imagine they are expecting Fort William to lose at Preston, and Strathspey to struggle at home to Edinburgh University, then either all the rest / all but one to prevail.

Whether they're right or not, most of those odds are about what I'd have anticipated from bookies.

Should be a good crowd at Gala FR v Linlithgow Rose, which is where I'm heading. Rose been underachieving the last few years but still a very good side.
