Burghead Thistle: Emirates Scottish Cup 2nd Round

Pollok have been handed a trip to the north of Scotland, away to Burghead Thistle. The match will be played, as you no doubt already know, on Saturday, 29th October.

Burghead play in the second tier of the North Region, North Division 1, where they finished 11th in 2010-11.

Further information on Burghead Thistle can be found on their website at www.burgheadthistle.co.uk

The town itself is 8 miles from Elgin, and has a rich and interesting history, about which you can find out more on the detailed Wikipedia article on the town.

For anyone wishing transport to Burghead, some seating is still available on the Players and Officials bus. The bus will leave from Newlandsfield at 7am on the 29th, stopping in Forres for lunch (not provided). This should take us into Burghead for around midday. The return journey will leave Burghead around 6pm. A seat on the bus will cost £20. If you are interested in securing one of the few remaining places, please contact Stuart McCulloch on 01355 303204, or ask any committee member.
