Benny’s back at the Glens!

New manager for Glens
New manager for Glens

New Glenrothes Juniors manager Benny Andrew will take charge of his first match this Saturday when Hermes visit Warout Stadium for a tasty Scottish Cup third round tie.

Andrew, a long-serving former Glens player who was handed a testimonial against a Celtic XI in 2009, was officially appointed on Friday along with new assistant manager Craig Gibson, goalkeeping coach Clive Guppy and coach Duncan Caithness.

Glens chairman Dougie Cooper said he was delighted to have a management team that has such a strong connection to the club.

Andrew’s first match promises to be a difficult one with North Region Superleague side Hermes still unbeaten this season and Glens are appealing for a big home crowd to help cheer the side to victory. Admission is £5 for adults and £2 for OAPs and children.

Glens will hope to reverse recent form that has seen them go without a win since September.

Also in Scottish Cup action this Saturday are Kennoway Star Hearts who travel to Ayshire looking to claim a major scalp in the shape of two-time winners, Cumnock, who last reached the final in 2008.

Thornton Hibs are out of the Scottish Cup so they are in the league action this Saturday with Newburgh the visitors to Memorial Park.

Saturday’s games kick-off at 1.45 p.m.
