‘Jour­ney into un­known’

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - HARDROCK CHALLENGE -

Co-man­ager Davie Irons ad­mit­ted Gretna 2008 are em­bark­ing on a jour­ney into the un­known when they tackle Camelon Juniors in cup ac­tion to­mor­row.

The Ray­dale Park team face a ju­nior side for the first time in com­pet­i­tive ac­tion and Irons said: “This is a new propo­si­tion for us be­cause we have never played them be­fore.

“So it will be a very in­ter­est­ing match for every­body. I must ad­mit we don’t know very much about them, other than the level they’ve been at and re­cent re­sults.”

The clubs clash at Ray­dale in the SFA South Re­gion Chal­lenge Cup third round.

And the Black and Whites will be thirst­ing for a win af­ter slump­ing to a dis­ap­point­ing 3-1 home de­feat on league duty against Kelty Hearts last week­end.

Irons, pic­tured, added: “We want to get back to win­ning ways af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing re­sult.

“Cup games al­ways have a lit­tle bit more bite to them and I am sure this will be no dif­fer­ent.

“But we are at home and hope­fully that gives us a bit of an ad­van­tage with the home fans get­ting right be­hind us.”
