Christmasbreakwatch 2019

Recommended Posts

Start of Advent today. Christmas break in EOS is Saturday 21st December this season.

So far Bo'ness v Broxburn in a big Premier Division derby and Dunipace v Ormiston in Conference A have been brought forward to that day from Sat 28th... while Heriot-Watt Uni v Stirling Uni EOS in an 'inter-conference' university derby has come up from Sat 4th Jan.

Any word of more? Festive friendlies? Mini-tournaments?

The two Uni teams playing a derby right at a time when the students will be away doesn't exactly seem smart.

Doubt there'd be hordes down whenever it got held...

For years it's been at New Year but this season - maybe for player availability - they've brought it up onto weekend before Christmas.

Saturday 21st December
Bo'ness Utd v Broxburn Athletic
Penicuik Athletic v Whitehill Welfare
Dunipace v Ormiston
Heriot-Watt Uni v Stirling Uni EOS


Looks like no 'extra' games and no friendlies whatsoever AFAICS. Feeding on footballing thin gruel this pre-Christmas.

Nevertheless a derby feast upon resumption.

Just shows the different standards. Tranent doing to Tynecastle what they’re doing to others
Not really. You should never count friendly results as a measure of anything. They're games for getting players fitness and trying new things, nothing more.

What a cracker of a festive break, let the fan's in ! ! Hopefully the midweek games will be a regular thing in the future - can't wait to get back up north. Fingers crossed the fans return asap.

‘Fraid it’s not looking likely. With every passing week, it’s looking less likely. I can see us playing out the whole season in front of no crowds. I hope I’m wrong but it’s not looking hopeful from where I’m sitting and that’s in a region that WAS in tier 2 but is now back in tier 3. So, yeah, going backwards it is then!
