Our second friendly match of Pre-season 2020 sees us visit East of Scotland League side Penicuik Athletic.
OPPONENTS: PENICUIK ATHLETIC
East of Scotland Premier League side Penicuik Athletic have a tremendous set-up at Penicuik Park and will provide strong opposition. Finishing eight in the curtailed 2019/20 in a very difficult division, manager Tony Begg has improved his squad with signings including Nicky Reid from Spartans; they also have squad full of senior and Lowland League experience and they will be looking to kick on when competitive football re-starts in October.
Penicuik are scheduled to wear all red, with City in our alternate kit of amber shirts, black shorts and socks.
Sadly due to Coronavirus restrictions, no spectators are permitted in the ground and we would ask all our supporters to respect this. We are delighted however to confirm that supporters of both teams can watch a live stream of today’s game on our YouTube channel Edinburgh City TV! It’s totally free, just tune in from 14:30!
We are essentially at full strength for this match, with all our new signings – Josh Campbell, Ouzy See, Danny Jardine and Lee Hamilton set to feature. Also it was great to see Andy Black back in action in midweek and he will again be part of the matchday squad.
This will be the first meeting of the sides; both teams had friendly matches this part midweek. We saw off a spirited Civil Service Strollers 4-0 at Christie Gillies Park, while Penicuik overcame fellow East of Scotland League side Haddington Athletic 2-1 at Penicuik Park.
