This will be Davie Irons’ side’s first match in the competition when they make the relatively short trip to the North of Edinburgh on Saturday. The Warriors have been active in terms of recruitment making a raft of signings, most notably experienced Callum Tapping and former Citizen Chris Kane.
We will be wearing our home kit of white shirts, black shorts and white socks while the visitors will be in their traditional colours of maroon shirts, white shorts and maroon socks.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORs
Sadly due to Coronavirus restrictions, no spectators are permitted in the ground and we would ask all our supporters to respect this. As detailed above, supporters of both sides can purchase the match via LIVE stream from www.ecfctv.com
Our new signings – Josh Campbell, Ouzy See, Danny Jardine, Zac Butterworth and Lee Hamilton all made their competitive debuts in midweek which was positive. Several members of the squad missed out against Livingston including Marc Laird, Robbie McIntyre, Kelby Mason and long-term absentee Allan Smith.
Last season the Warriors joined us in League 2 and we met four times across the League and Challenge Cup. Stenny won 2-1 in the Cup however we came out on top in each of the League meetings, our most impressive result being a 4-0 win last October with goals from Scott Shepherd, Conrad Balatoni, Danny Handling and Aidan Wilson. The last match was on 24 January at Ochilview, where we came from behind to win 2-1 thanks again to goals from Shepherd and Handling.
