Gala only going for 5 weeks of friendlies this time...

News the Ronnie Swan Trophy tournament at Spartans will not feature SFs & 3rd-4th playoff / Final. Instead both days fixtures are pre-set, with a league table deciding things. Bonus point shoot-out after draws.


Saturday 8th July
Spartans v Hibs XI (12 noon)
Edinburgh City v Hearts XI (3pm)

Sunday 9th July
Edinburgh City v Hibs XI (12 noon)
Spartans v Hearts XI (3pm)

For the raydale cup, any suggestions on decent pubs to head to before/after?

They've a cheap social club INSIDE the ground. There's another social club in the car park that shows the televised games. 

A fair wee walk I think to other bars. I once walked into a wedding reception though. :oops
