At 2-30pm this afternoon, Broughty Athletic JFC take on local side East Craigie JFC in the 1st round of the DJ Laing sponsored East of Scotland Cup at Whitton Park, known as for today as Sandy’s Game…
Sandy Dorward, former physio of East Craigie for many years and more recently BAJFC, passed away in July and with this fixture being pulled out of the hat when the draw was made, it’s a fitting tribute to such a man that both his teams are playing each other.
As agreed between both sides and the match official, there will be a minutes applause prior to kick off in memory of Sandy, pictured left at the GA CUP final at Tannadice Park with BAJFC captain Jamie Winter.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kickoff. Should the game end in a draw after 90mins then a penalty shootout will determine who enters the hat for the second round draw.
