Good luck to Eyemouth but I really fear the worst.

This could be a pretty pointless final in terms of a contest.

The better teams available (and there aren't many as its a bit of a Diddy cup) should have Meade sure they got there then.

we are struggling to get our first win in league but we beat both ormiston and duns away from home to get to the final. we cannot be that garbage.

Sorry but those 2 teams are rooted at the bottom of the league as well

Sadly for a Cup final this will be a trouncing 6- 0 at least not sure what the point of this cup is but Leith like winning it :thumsup2

Great comments these arent they. Ormiston sat on 12 points. Unbeaten in 5. 3 Points behind 6th place Coldstream with 2 games in hand. Get a grip.

It's a cup final, anything can happen. Although yeah, Leith are favourites and they know how to win this cup....

It was a funny sort of competition this season... Only 7 entrants in the end and of those all the ex-Premier ended up in one half of the draw, from which emerged 3-times holders Leith Athletic; and all the ex-First Division ended up in the other half of the draw, from which emerged Eyemouth.

Could hardly be a bigger contrast in form and positioning either. Leith are 9pts clear atop the table; Eyemouth are bottom of the table without a point to their name. Leith come into the final off a 7-0 win; Eyemouth come into it off an 8-0 defeat. When they met earlier this season Leith thumped them 5-0. Leith have only lost 3 games all season (and those were against 2 LL opponents and Spartans EOS); Eyemouth have only won 2 games all season, in this cup in both cases.

However, it's a cup final and anything can happen. Leith have only been out of the Lothians and central belt once since August, and have played most of their games on 3G. Who knows what might happen if it's a damp, squally day at Home Park, for example.

Grass was long last time I played down there for Coldstream not sure what its like now however and if that would have any bearing on the way the beautiful game is played.

Surprised to see there is no mention of the final whatsoever in today's local paper?

It's over 25 years since a Berwickshire club last won something and 5 years since one made a final - even if Eyemouth's chances are rated low, disappointing no preview of any kind made it.

a cup with only 7 entrants does not cause much excitement especially when its top v bottom

but good luck to both teams especially Eyemouth as them winning would be worth writing about

still think they will get trounced though

Evening News had a small preview. Asked Leith to comment but they declined. Great publicity for league!

I think it should be noted that the family of the late Alex Jack put up this trophy in his memory and originally it was set up for clubs that couldn't get in Scottish (obviously times have changed hence only 7 clubs) maybe the eos could reconsider the criteria for entering the cup itself. it's great to see a cup final taking place in Coldstream where they've spent a fair bit of work on their whole set up. I'm sure if Leith win it (again) it'll be a great journey home or likewise Eyemouth starved of success over the years will certainly make a wee bit noise in the town should they be successful. Very best of luck to both clubs.

Even on a 3G, who wants to ref, play or drive too and watch in this weather, f**k that

Ironically, after a brief blizzard, it is now a braw day with bright sunshine, blue sky and a gentle breeze. Would have made for fairly genteel conditions.
