Weir Pushing To Emerge Winners Of Cup Section

Weir AFC will attempt to see off opposition from three other clubs – and emerge Section Eight winners in the forthcoming Spring Cup, writes Tom Scott.

The Southside Club have been back training a few weeks now, and players have been working hard, and turning out in good numbers.

“Their opening in the Spring Cup Section 5 is against 1st Division side Cambria AFC (away). A be a big on Wednesday, May 19. They also play Pollok at home three days later (home) and Mosspark away on May 26.

In total, there are eight Sections of the Spring Cup in the FN Teamwear Greater Glasgow AFL.

Manager Martin Guthrie has revealed news of more match action. He said: “We will also be participating in a Summer League which was set up by Caledonian team Kilsyth AFC. There are 8 teams in it and we will have 14 games between June and end of July, so it’s something to look forward to after so long without any games.

“There’s some good teams in it. Should be a decent standard.”
