Tomorrow (Saturday 8) we face our biggest match for some time, as we travel to Lockerbie to take on Bonnyton Thistle in the South and East Cup Winners Shield. At stake is a guaranteed place in the Scottish Cup next season which would be a first for our club.
If you plan to come along to cheer the lads on, here’s some information for you.
This will leave Carmuirs Park at 11am. Pleas be there in good time and have your £10 ready. We’ll be getting dropped off at The Brig pub for pre match hospitality. We should return to the Park around 7:30/8pm unless it goes to extra time of course.
The match is at New King Edward Park, Lockerbie. You should use postcode DG11 2BL for parking and park entrance. Kick off is at 3pm.
You can park on the side of the park entrance roadway. All parking is at owners risk. The roadway is yellow lined but that was for when the Primary School was there. They have been left to deter overnight Lorry Parking.
No alcohol can be admitted into the ground. It is a local authority bylaw that alcohol cannot be consumed in public areas within the town. This is strictly enforced and there is often a Police patrol on any match days. There is a strict no smoking policy within all spectator areas.
Please note that the ground has limited catering facilities, with only hot/cold drinks and pies available. There are no bar facilities.
Unfortunately at the moment they only have an uncovered spectator area. Toilets are limited to a couple of portacabins that are just a short walk from the spectator area.
If you arrive early in Lockerbie for a bar or pre match catering, you can find those in the town centre. There are 4 hotels, 7 public bars, 2 licensed cafes, and a Greggs all within a 10-15 min walk from the Park.
