Next available Saturday is 23rd March, unless it's done midweek.

It does put the 12/13th March date for the EOS City Cup semis out the window though.

I'd have thought 23rd and we'll probably play league cup with Crossgates or if we beat lthv the Kings cup match from 2nd march

Jeanfield v Bonnyrigg won't be midweek as lights won't be ready any time soon.

Ideally it will be the 23rd if not before then.

Similar sort of situation occurred in 2015-16 when the section of the draw with Whitehill and LTHV in it fell badly behind (their QF wasn't actually played until May!). Then the Final got held at the end of the season. Kelty's expulsion means none of the Last 16 tie, QF or SF has lights... Jeanfield v Bonnyrigg, Peebles v Jeanfield/Bonnyrigg, or Camelon v Peebles/Jeanfield/Bonnyrigg... so don't see how they could all have been caught-up over the next 4-6 weeks.

It's a shame as the Final was supposed to be Sunday 24th March and that international weekend has often delivered good crowds over the last 10yrs (few held other dates). On the otherhand Edinburgh City might playing be in the Irn-Bru Cup Final that day - if they beat Connah's Quay Nomads in a fortnight - and San Marino v Scotland is on TV at 5pm.


Having been put back into good order over the last 5-10yrs the City Cup unfortunately went to pieces again last season... both SFs were held-over to the start of this season, and the Final (Edinburgh City v EK) still hasn't been played. City getting promoted means there are now 3 ties not just 1 - albeit the entrants are known after SFs not after Final.

It must be almost unique in that you qualify for that season's competition, not the following season's.

Penicuik will be disappointed after playing well. Spartans were ruthless in the shootout though.

Jeanfield 2-4 Bonnyrigg


Going by twitter updates it was a hard-fought game in Perth where the visitors saw out a comfortable lead.

Bonnyrigg ran into a 4-0 lead after less than 25mins at which point the dazed hosts seem to have shook themselves from their slumber. They immediately got a goal back and so went in 1-4 at HT. Jeanfield them struck again with about 15mins left but were unable to setup a grandstand finish.

Bonnyrigg - still in all the cups - now proceed to QF at Peebles, victory in which would see SF at Camelon.

Camelon 2-1 winners in the second semi-final/No-License Derby. Bit a disappointing end to the season for Bonnyrigg, who apparently had to play their starting 11 for the full 90 mins due to a shortage of subs.

Hopefully we can now fulfill @AlanCamelonfan's wish and dump Spartans out this Saturday for the final.
