Kilby’s 5-day sign­ing

East Kilbride News - - FRONT PAGE -

East Kil­bride FC’s un­der-18s have landed a glam­our tie with Rangers in the Scot­tish FA Youth Cup.

The Kilby kids were drawn away to the Ibrox side in last week’s draw and will travel to The Hum­mel Train­ing Cen­tre – the first team’s train­ing com­plex – next month for the third-round clash.

EK, who won the U17 SYFA Scot­tish Cup last sea­son, thrashed Al­loa 5-1 in the last round to earn their shot at the Glas­gow gi­ants.

Boss Craig Young said:“I’m de­lighted for the boys. They have been re­warded for all their hard work over the last year.

“It will be a bril­liant ex­pe­ri­ence and I’m re­ally ex­cited for them.”

Young, who was as­sis­tant to Billy Stark at EK’s Low­land team last sea­son, added:“I would have liked some­thing else as I’d set a tar­get of get­ting to the last 16 and this is go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult game. But this is as big a draw as we could have got and the boys will learn from it.”

The tie will be played on Fri­day, Novem­ber 9.
