HattrickLeagueBrook Street will kick of the new league campaign with a trip to MacArthur Park to face EK Tuggers, before two home games on the bounce against new boys Sparta Bragg and Kessler’s Eleven respectively.

Following those is a trip to face Vodikavkaz before Vines Cross visit on Week 5. The first half of the season is wrapped up by a visit to face Airth Castle Rovers, before new side Arnelle Sporting Club visit New Home Park in the first leg of the double-header in Week 7.

“It’s not too bad a start at all”, admitted Marcus on hearing the list, adding, “Having the two home games on the bounce early on is something we’ve got to take full advantage of. We’ve got to turn New Home Park into a fortress this season, something we’re conscious has not been the case in recent seasons”.

He said, “We’ve had a good build up to the new season, and we’re going in with a clean bill of health. We’ve got to hit the ground running as this is going to be a cutthroat league once again, so keeping the squad fit will be very important.

Prior to the start of the league season, the Scottish Cup gets underway on Wednesday with a trip to Stirling to face League V side Dean United. Kick-off is at 10:30 BST as usual.
