With a scheduled free week in South football, four clubs have opted to play two South of Scotland League matches.
Creetown will be hoping for a break in the recent poor weather so that their game can go ahead against Abbey Vale at Castle Cary Park.
Creetown are currently lying second bottom in the league table with only seven points accumulated at the half-way stage in this season’s campaign whereas Abbey Vale have a total of 19 points and will start this match as favourites to add to that total.
Creetown, though, are no pushovers, particularly at home, and are more than capable of giving their supporters a bit of New Year fare but the visitors are expected to be the happier of the two sides come the end of this contest.
The other scheduled match is at St Mary’s Park were St Cuthbert Wanderers entertain Heston Rovers in a match that could be close although the home side will be slight favourites to take the three points.
Both these sides know the way to goal and this could well be a high scoring match but it is expected that the Kirkcudbright side will be the side who score the most to take the points to keep up their challenge at the top of the table.
Your correspondent takes this opportunity to wish all connected with, and those with an interest in, South football, all the very best for a sporting and successful New Year.
Saturday, December 29 (kick-offs 2pm): South of Scotland League: Creetown v Abbey Vale; St Cuthbert Wanderers v Heston Rovers.
