Big Day At Park Farm (including Saints team news for the weekend)


This week Saints face pace setters Howe of Fife at Park Farm. The visitors sit one place above Saints in the table but are eight points clear, to retain hopes of a serious promotion push Saints must win. After last weeks disappointment at Falkirk a huge performance is required this week and a big turnout of supporters will help! Changes in the squad have been necessary after the loss of Gareth McCall to illness.

Saints Second XV were denied a game last week by the waterlogged pitch at Lenzie. This week they face old friends Creighton from Carlisle at home also.

On Saturday evening a fund raising Quiz will be held with some magnificent prizes including two tickets for a full hospitality package on December 27th to see Glasgow play Edinburgh. All teams welcome for a 7.00pm start, buffet included!

More importantly, the half time entertainment will be provided by our own Dumfries Minis playing teams from Oban!

Glasgow Warriors describes this match day experience as follows. “Dining in the Alan Rough restaurant is a fantastic way to enjoy the pre-match build-up and experience excellent hospitality throughout the event. This exclusive package includes entry to the game – a Champagne reception – two course meal with wine and water on your table for the duration of the meal – executive seating – a commemorative gift – half time pies, tea and coffee – and access to the man of the match presentation.
