Twelve Days of Christmas-watch

Recommended Posts

Normally about this time of the season I'd post 'Christmasbreak-watch' threads for the different games and midseason friendlies clubs would be playing over the yuletide period.

However these are not normal times... so as well as several cards in the Lowland League, WOS Premier, and throughout the EOS League - most of them derbies - there is the first-ever Scottish Cup round on Boxing Day, plus last season's South Challenge Cup SF.

With clubs adjusting days and times there are actually non-league games every day from Christmas to Epiphany - the 'Twelve Days of Christmas' - except (for now anyway) New Year's Eve; so I thought a single thread to keep track could be a good substitute.

Sadly fans will only be present at a handful... but with so many clubs streaming online now, this at least might bring us all some much-needed "festive football cheer" in place of attending holiday games. Post-up amendments or extra games you notice.

Might have been a good time to have re-cast the Vale of Leithen v Heston Soccer Shop cup game?

Vale of Leithen are idle on Boxing Day then New Year's Day.

However unlike rest the South of Scotland League are on a 3-week break, which likely rules it out unless Heston wished to play.

Sauchie v Tynecastle - now Tuesday 29th
Penicuik v Newtongrange - now Wednesday 30th
Gretna v Dalbeattie - now Saturday 2nd

new friendly - Sauchie Community v Lochore - Monday 28th


(Newtongrange-Penicuik = Wednesday 23rd).


In an unusual twist the 'university derby' is the only Lowland or East game to stick with Boxing Day. In times past it would've been the likeliest festive game to move.

An ongoing floodlight issue at the Falkirk Stadium is seeing the kick off time of festive fixtures brought forward

 

This is due to an ongoing floodlight issue at The Falkirk Stadium which also saw last weekend’s match with Airdrieonians moved.

QUOTE FROM OFFICIAL FALKIRK FC WEBSITE

Falkirk Football Club can confirm that Saturday’s League One fixture against Airdrieonians has been postponed to Sunday 20th December, with a 12 noon kick-off.

The postponement is due to structural damage being found on one of the Stadium’s floodlight towers.
