All set for season opener

This afternoon we face Edusport Academy in our opening fixture of the 2018-19 Lowland League season. 

Kick off at Galabank, North Street, Annan DG12 5DQ is at 3pm. 

Admission prices are ... Adults £5; Concessions £2 & U16 / Emergency Services / Armed Forces Free 

This will be the 4th ever meeting between the two sides, the second at Galabank and third in the Lowland League. 

We first met on the 7th March 2015 when extra time was needed to progress to the South Challenge Cup semi finals, winning 2-1. 

Following Edusport’s promotion to the Lowland League they visited Ferguson Park early last season for a game that will be best remembered for a 45 minute delay after Darren McCraw sustained a serious knee injury and an ambulance had to be called. McCraw had earlier given Whitehill the lead and after the restart Kyle Mitchell and James McPartlin also scored in a 3-1 win. 

It wasn’t so good later on in the season though with Edusport running out comfortable 2-0 winners on the 9th December. 

The players leave from Ferguson Park at 11am with as many as 9 new signings ready to make their debuts. 

All the best for the new season and let’s hope we can get off to a good start today.
