The team’s train­ing ses­sions will now be held on Tues­days at 6.45pm at Strat­hearn Com­mu­nity Cam­pus’s 3G pitches.

Vale are host­ing a bingo tea for club funds on Fri­day, Novem­ber 3, from 7.30pm in the Bri­tish Le­gion, Perth Road. ● Auchter­arder Prim­rose also pulled off a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance on Satur­day to progress to the third round of the Scot­tish Cup.

Goals from Saf­ferty and Urquhart at the Lang Toon cam­pus mean the side will now face a tricky trip to face Glas­gow Harp in the next round on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4.

Prim­rose’s at­ten­tion turns to the first round of the Perthshire Cup this week­end, when they face a tough trip away to Bridge of Earn, who are cur­rently a point above the Auchter­arder side in A&B Taxi Di­vi­sion One. ● Strat­hearn Grove were cru­elly elim­i­nated from the Scot­tish Cup af­ter a du­bi­ous Ket­tins goal saw the Strath­more side progress.

Grove had earned a re­play at Lind­say Park af­ter a hard-fought 1-1 draw in Cri­eff, with a Keir Cramb fin­ish giv­ing Grove the chance to pro­duce a cup shock.

Satur­day’s re­play did not fol­low the Strat­hearn side’s script and, de­spite sav­ing a penalty, a Ket­tins goal – which looked to have been off­side – was enough to end their cup dreams.

The Di­vi­sion Three side will look to bounce back with a Perthshire Cup match away to high-fly­ers St Johns. Kick-off is at 1.30pm.

Vale are with­out any com­pet­i­tive ac­tion this week­end.
