Gretna FC 2008 head to Castle Douglas on a high this Saturday following a hat trick of wins in the Scottish Lowland League.
Preston Athletic were the latest team to feel the effects of the amazing turnaround engineered by manager Stuart Rome in the Border club's fortunes. The Prestonpans pitch has suffered from the ravages of the winter weather and a very difficult surface mitigated against free flowing football. Yet Gretna stuck to their task and battled for a good victory and yet another clean sheet. Goals from Anderson and Wadge were again responsible for full points coming back to Raydale.
Team: Parker, Casey, Rea, White, Inglis, Renyard, Addison, Crozier, Wadge, McMath, Anderson Subs - Graham D.Graham C .Smith Wood Liddell.
Saturday's opponents, Threave Rovers, sit bottom of the Lowland League with a solitary win. But the Hoops will not be taking the game lightly. Both sides have a number of players who have played for either team and there are serious bragging rights at stake. Games between these two teams are always tightly contested and no matter how they are faring, Rovers always step up a notch or tow against Gretna.
Should be an encounter worth savouring.
