Team to face Cartha

This weekend, GHA make the short trip to Dumbreck for the second instalment of the South Glasgow derby against Cartha QP.  Both teams enjoyed a week off last Saturday meaning both go into this match refreshed and eager to get one over their old rivals.

On the injury front, Donald Malcolm is out with a knee injury and is replaced by the experienced Ian Nelson. Back in the squad are Andrew Gilman and Niall Cassie who have both played well for the 2nds in recent weeks after coming back from long term injury.

From a GHA perspective, this is a must win game if we are to have any hope of challenging Howe of Fife for the league title. Howe have the initiative going into this Saturday’s fixtures with a two point lead at the top of the table and a game in hand over GHA. However, Howe and GHA will finish the season with a double header meaning that GHA can overcome their current deficit by winning out (let’s not go into bonus point permutations as that’s where things get complicated!). But suffice to say, GHA must win their two upcoming fixtures before then, starting with this Saturday’s derby match at Cartha followed by an away trip to Perthshire next weekend.

With the 2nd XV are playing Glasgow Hawks at Anniesland tonight, we hope to bring a large support to Dumbreck on Saturday. So get the war paint on and come along and support the boys. Kick Off at Dumbreck is 3pm.
