EARLY KICK OFF CONFIRMED FOR AUCHINLECK SCOTTISH CUP TIE
THE club can this afternoon confirm that our second round William Hill Scottish Cup match at Beechwood Park, Auchinleck on Saturday 19th October will kick off at 2:30pm. Admission prices will be £10 for adults and £5 for concessions
Talbot reached the second round by beating Barry Ferguson's Kelty Hearts 3-0 live on BBC Scotland. The tie in Ayrshire will mark Paul Hartley's first match in charge of the club in the competition, in which he faired well as a player, winning the trophy twice as a player with both Hearts and Celtic.
The match will be a repeat of last year's second round where we could only draw the match 1-1 at Balmoral Stadium despite creating a number of good chances. The return leg at Beechwood Park saw us exit the competition after Calvin Kemp's second half goal sent Talbot through to the third round.
