EARLY KICK OFF CONFIRMED FOR AUCHINLECK SCOTTISH CUP TIE

26/09/2019

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.
