East Cup of (Football) Nations 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Went along to watch the Strollers this afternoon. Big moment midway through the first half when they had a goal disallowed (the consensus was pretty harshly) from a corner. Shortly after the Swifts took the lead from a stunning free kick. The 2nd was even better and the Swifts scored again in injury time.

Interesting to note that depending on the Stirling Uni v Dunbar result only 2 or 3 of the Last 8 will be LL clubs.

To date Vale, EK, Gala, Gretna and Civil Service have been lanced by EOSL sides.

Suppose this sort of thing was too be expected with all the top junior sides coming into the EOSL.

Interestingly the remaining 10 hail widely from Perth, Stirling, Falkirk, Fife, Edinburgh, Midlothian (x2), East Lothian (x2), Borders.

Penicuik Athletic v University of Stirling
Peebles Rovers v Jeanfield Swifts/Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic
Kelty Hearts v Camelon
Spartans v Tranent


Some intriguing ties... Penicuik will be favourites over a struggling Stirling Uni although they've proven cup specialists this campaign. Jeanfield or Bonnyrigg will be happy to have got Peebles. Spartans cannot afford any complacency if they're to overcome Tranent. Kelty v Camelon looks tie-of-the-round.

Spartans through to the semi-finals with a 89th minute winner in 3-2 win over Tranent. Whatever way it goes tomorrow looks like the semis will be tasty ties.

After building up a great tradition of cup success in the 2000s... indeed I can recall them playing and I think winning 3 cup finals in a week about the turn of the decade... it's been mean fare for Spartans in recent years. Since their King Cup triumph in 2012-13 (in what was also their last game as an EOSL club), their only cup silverware is this tournament and the Lowland League Cup 2 seasons ago. Having already exited the South Challenge Cup and conceded the league title, this competition represents 50% of their chance at bucking that trend.


Bonnyrigg, Camelon, Jeanfield and Penicuik of course only turned senior this season, although Camelon had already secured 2 senior cup titles before the advent calendars were half opened. Kelty turned last season and won the King Cup.

Since they famously won the EOS League and 3 cups in 2011-12, the only silverware at Stirling Uni - outside of educational competition - came in the inaugural Lowland League Cup some half-decade hence.

Jeanfield P-P Bonnyrigg

Penicuik P-P Stirling Uni


Only 6 games off across LL + EOSL clubs... Hawick, Vale of Leithen, Penicuik, Hill of Beath, St Andrews and Jeanfield... but sadly it includes 2 of these cup-ties including the delayed R3 contest.

Tasty pair of Semi-Finals although the bottom half of the draw has rather backed-up.

Shout out to Camelon who finally lost in a cup-tie, meaning the last of this season's invincibles has fallen.Penicuik, Bonnyrigg and Camelon are still left in 3 cups (out of 5) while Stirling are still left in 3 cups (out of 4). EK lost that accolade in crashing at Inverness earlier.
