The Newtongrange Star squad in good spirits ahead of their Southern League cup final

Newtongrange Star are in cup final action this weekend against top-flight opposition.

Star head to Broxburn on Saturday for the South League Cup final against Linlithgow Rose, who are currently unbeaten and chasing their third consecutive league cup success.

With their league campaign finished and promotion to the Super League guaranteed, Nitten are now waiting to see if they will be crowned champions – as other teams still have to play games postponed during the winter.

So, with the Premier League title still a possibility, chairman Stan Adams is excited about the cup final, but just happy that the team will be playing Super League opposition like Linlithgow Rose every week come next season.

Linlithgow Rose v Newtongrange Star, at Albyn Park, Broxburn, Saturday, May 4, kick-off 2.30pm.
