Mon­archs aim to get back on track

West Lothian Courier - - The Back Page - Cal­lum Carson

The Ed­in­burgh Staggs Bar Mon­archs are back in ac­tion at Ar­madale Sta­dium to­mor­row (Fri­day) night.

The side take on Ipswich Witches in an SGB Cham­pi­onship fix­ture, 24 hours re­moved from an away trip to Red­car Bears as they look to get their play-off bid on track.

As part of the Mon­archs’ sea­son-long 70th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, Fri­day night’s clash is set to be a 1980s night as they con­tinue to work their way through the decades.

Cap­tain Erik Riss will be keen to get back to form af­ter a rare poor per­for­mance in last week’s away loss to the Scun­thorpe Scor­pi­ons as the club en­ter this week’s dou­ble header sit­ting at the foot of the Cham­pi­onship ta­ble with just two wins from their seven fix­tures.

How­ever, rookie Max Ruml should be full of con­fi­dence af­ter claim­ing the Cale­do­nian Rid­ers’ Cham­pi­onship last week, held at Ar­madale Sta­dium with a string of fine dis­plays.

The ac­tion gets un­der­way at 7.30pm, with gates open at 6.30pm and tick­ets avail­able to pur­chase on the day.

For a full re­port on Max’s suc­cess, and the Mon­archs de­feat, turn to page 52.
