Penicuik Athletic clinched promotion to the Super League last week for the first time in their history, with only rain denying them the title.
A 1-0 victory at Livingston United last Wednesday clinched promotion for Cuikie, while a win yesterday (Wednesday) at home to Jeanfield Swifts would hand them the title, after the match between the teams was abandoned at half-time on Saturday.
Speaking on Monday, manager Craig Meikle is excited about next season. “The club has had some tough times over the past few years but now it’s going in the right direction on and off the pitch. The Super League looks like it will be full of teams from Edinburgh and the Lothians, so a lot of local derbies, and with that comes increased crowds, so definitely exciting times for the club.
“We have played six games against Super League sides this year and only lost once. So with the current squad I don’t think we will be fighting relegation, and if I can add maybe four more players I believe the club has got the right infrastructure to go on and become a top junior club.”
