Tuesday night’s scheduled pre-season match with St Anthony’s has been cancelled.
We were due to play the junior side, but the gaffer feels the players need more time to recover from Saturday’s Petrofac Training Cup heroics against Airdrie.
Our next game will be against Livingston in the League Cup at Cliftonhill this Saturday, 3pm kick off.more info
Goalkeeper Neil Parry was the hero as Albion Rovers caused an upset in the Petrofac Training Cup with a penalty shoot-out victory over Lanarkshire rivals Airdrie.
Liam Watt gave Airdrie the lead but Ali Love levelled.
Nathan Blockley then edged the home side ahead again before John Gemmell sent the match into extra time with an awesome overhead kick.
Neither side found a winner and Parry saved from Marc Fitzpatrick and Jamie Bain as the shootout finished 4-2. Rovers penalties were scored by Gemmell, Pollock, Philips with player manager Young hitting the winner. The draw for the next round is on Tuesday.
