Pre-season begins on Saturday 23 July away to Blantyre Vics with a 2pm kick off. This will be followed by another away game to Alloa Athletic under 20s on Wednesday 26 July starting at 7:30pm. The final game will be against Armadale in the Willie Johnstone Memorial match the following Saturday with a 2pm kick off, also away.
One of the reasons why all these games are away is that some drainage work is being carried out on Central Park thanks to a grant from Levenseat for which the club are grateful. The grant was sufficient to also allow us to purchase a new grass cutting machine.
Also, visitors to Central Park will see a new addition to the ground in the shape of a small seated enclosure installed by the Supporters' Club for the benefit of its members. Although most seats are now taken, a few are still available at a cost of £50 - see Robert Cook for more details. Work has also been done on some of the terracing and the storage container has been rotated by 90 degrees.

Supporters Club News
The bus departs from the social club at 1:15pm for next Saturday's game against Haddington.
The Supporters' Club are looking for four mannequins for an upcoming event to display strips. If any one can help, please get in contact.
We also have confirmation of funding from the Land Trust which will allow us to proceed with planning to
erect our seated, covered enclosure and install solar panels on the Changing room roof.
We are offering a "seat for life" for anyone who is interested. This will cost £50 and guarantee shelter at the Social club side
of the park.
Money raised from the sale of seats will go towards getting the base ready for the prefabricated structure to be
brought in at the end of the season.
