Kelty Hearts v Cowdenbeath


Recommended Posts

Kelty begin their league campaign with a home game against Cowdenbeath. I expect a very difficult test for Cowden here. I expect Kelty will be too strong for us. I’m hoping for a good performance and giving them a game. We should be better than last season as we are stronger in important areas.

Is this really going to be more difficult than going up to Cove on the first day of the season?

I think so.  Local derby.  I think Kelty will skoosh it on Saturday.  4-1.

Kelty will win League 2 at a canter. We're competing against the other 8 teams in the division. If anyone takes points from them in games they can count them as a bonus!

Probably about 30mins walk from Cowdenbeath station. There is a path all the way. Done it plenty times drunk when lived in Kelty

thanks, had a look on google maps, nice to see a path all the way, as you say easily do that distance in 30 mins.

45/50 minutes from the station to the actual ground at a brisk pace from but it's pretty hilly!

You must be pretty fit. It’s 2.7miles. 

thats nothing. walked 3 miles from Uphall station  to Broxburn last week. Quick question is the north enclosure on the dugout side of the pitch?

There's a couple of buses an hour: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Cowdenbeath+(COW),+Cowdenbeath/56.1349681,-3.3788471/@56.1227622,-3.3795184,4985m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m15!4m14!1m5!1m1!1s0x4887cc60746e16fd:0x480002823f7995a6!2m2!1d-3.343122!2d56.1116661!1m0!2m5!4e2!5e0!6e1!7e2!8j1627740000!3e3

Though if you like to walk, you could stay on the train until Lochgelly and walk to Kelty via the outskirts of Lochore Meadows (about 15 minutes more according to Google).

Aye both standing enclosures are on the dug out side.

Cowden are just there as the carefully selected support act, SPFL resorting to Lowland League fixture manipulation to make headlines.

Get it done, then get on with the rest of the season.

We’ve had a derby day opener in the past against the Pars in 2012.

They don’t start with derby days too much however.

It would have been more of a benefit to Kelty if it had been in pre covid times as they would have got a far bigger gate than they will get on Saturday.
