Ladies Look For Win

The Ladies first team return to action tomorrow as they face Grove at Bellahouston with a 14.30 push back.

The girls have had a frustrating season so far and have yet to hit the heights of last season. They will have to be at their best if they are to take anything from tomorrow's clash.
 
Grove have long dominated the women's game and this season has proved to be no different as they are currently undefeated this season. Burne have the ability to cause a shock and they will rely on internationals Julie Bryce, Katie Mackay, Laura Wrightson and Cath Rae to be on top form. Striker Bryce commented
 
"while Grove are a top team if we play to our strengths we can take something from this game"
 
A positive result should act as a springboard for the ladies to push on for the rest of the season as they continue their preperations for their first excursion into Europe.
 
The ladies 2's and 3's will also look to continue their impressive start to the season tomorrow. The 2's face GHK at Bellahouston while the undefeated 3's face a local derby with Ferguslie at Linwood. The 3's are also in action on Sunday against Hilhead.
 
The gents programme has been disrupted this weekend due to the U18 inter district championships. The 2's and 5's have the week off leaving the 3's and 4's to fly the flag.
 
The 4's will be looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat to local rivals Western, when they travel to face Clydesdale at Titwood.
 
Skipper Alan 'the cat' Malcolmson had some harsh words for his charges after last weeks game and he will be looking for a positive reaction from his team. Burne are boosted by the return of forward Jonno Ferguson and Malcolmson will look to Jonno and Greg Van Honkey Donker to inspire his team to victory. 'The Cat' commented,
 
"the boys were under par last week, we must look to learn from the mistakes we made and get our season back on track"
 
The third team are in action against Giffnock at Mearns Castle. Skipper Alan Ralph knows that nothing less than a victory will be enough if the 3's are to maintain their challenge at the top of the table.
 
Ralph's team selection has been hampered due to the district competition, but he is able to call upon the services of influential defender Craig Walker as well as the returning David Magoo.
 
Scotland are also in action overnight in a must win game against Wales. While they will fancy their chances of victory they will have to be on their guard as the Welsh were able to record a 4-2 victory in the sides last encounter.
 
Victory for the Scots would put them in the bronze medal play off and earn them some much needed world ranking points. Check the site tomorrow for news of the result.
