Last Tuesday Rovers lost narrowly at Cliftonhill to a strong St Mirren side. The only goal was scored by Ross Caldwell, who recently joined the Paisley side from Hibernian.
On Saturday Rovers ventured south-west to Castle Douglas to take on Lowland League side Threave Rovers at a rather rain-sodden Meadow Park. The visiting Rovers ran out victors by four goals to none, with the strikes coming from Gary Fisher, Mark McGuigan (2) and a John Gemmell penalty.
Rovers would like to thank both St Mirren and Threave Rovers for providing the opposition, and in the latter case some excellent hospitality as well, in two very worthwhile exercises. We wish both all the very best of luck in their forthcoming seasons.
The next pre-season friendly takes place tomorrow evening at Cliftonhill against a Motherwell XI, and is a 7:45pm kick-off. Admission is £5, or £2 concession, and you can pay at the gate. Season tickets are NOT valid.
