What’s going on at Arniston?

THE future of Arniston Rangers FC was left in some doubt earlier this week with the news that only three players – goalkeeper Bartosz Rachowski, Richie McCaul and Fabio Zajac – turned up for Arniston’s game on Saturday away to Dunbar United in the Dechmont South League Cup.

This forced the fixture to be abandoned and began doubts about further Arniston fixtures starting with a midweek home game due against Dalkeith Thistle on Tuesday evening and Saturday’s away game at Haddington.

This followed the departure of manager Jackie Myles last Wednesday evening following Arniston’s home 3-1 defeat to East Lothian’s Tranent Juniors. Assistant manager Jock Landells was due to take charge at Dunbar last weekend, but following the fixture failure, Arniston officials were in conference behind closed doors.
