A View from The Committee – The Scottish Cup

Saturday is a huge occasion for the football club and would not have been possible without the work of a lot of people involved with the club. The management, volunteers, supporters and the committee have all played a part in securing our SFA license – which allows us to enter the Scottish Cup.

Since submitting and then being approved for our SFA license other challenges have came our way as they have for all clubs during the pandemic. The tireless work of everyone on the committee, the management and a number of supporters to keep everything at the club moving has been incredible despite us not being able to welcome supporters through the turnstiles.

Who could forget the unbelievable levels of support the club received in the virtual Donate a Ticket Scottish Cup earlier in the year, now we get to be involved in the real thing!

Some thoughts from Committee members –

Archie Lockhart – ‘A momentous day for Newtongrange Star to be in the “proper” Scottish Cup for the first time in it’s history, a great pity the fans won’t be there to make the occasion unforgettable.’

Scott Dorans – ‘A special thanks to every committee for keeping this great football club going in the right direction to get to this fantastic day.’

Mark Lunn – ‘A great day for all the people from Newtongrange and associated with the club and hopefully we can all do our self’s proud on Saturday and beyond .’
