Monymusk face old rivals on Saturday

Monymusk’s re-scheduled Division 2 (East) home fixture against Ellon Thistle last Saturday had to be postponed because overnight frost made the Deer Park pitch unplayable.

Musk are looking to propel themselves up the league this Saturday, December 1, when they travel to face old rivals Newburgh Thistle in the league. Encounters between the two sides - both promoted last season from Division 3 - are usually tight with the exposed pitch at Newburgh proving in the past to be a stern test for visiting teams if the conditions are unfavourable.

The draw has been made for the second round of the Soccer World North of Scotland Amateur Cup and Musk will travel to face Division 2 (North) side Mintlaw on December 15.
