SCOTTISH CUP FIRST ROUND MATCH
V CAMELON JUNIORS AT SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN
SATURDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2022 – KO 3pm
We welcome to Seafield Park the team, management, and supporters of Camelon Juniors FC – The Mighty Mariners! They retained the Juniors part of their name as it was a large part of their heritage when in 2018 they joined the East of Scotland League as part of the reorganisation of leagues
Formed in 1920 on the junction where the Union Canal meets the Forth and Clyde Canal – hence the nickname – Camelon Juniors have mainly been a Junior Club but in 2018 joined the East of Scotland League. They have a very good history and one of their players Jerry Dawson moved to Rangers in the fifties, and more recently Kevin McAllister and Jack Ross are names known throughout football.
Although success has been limited with one appearance in the Scottish Cup Final in 1952, the mid nineties saw their most successful spell winning the OVD Scottish Cup in 1995 when they beat Whitburn in the final 2-0. The following year they again reached the final only to be beaten in extra time by Tayport. During this period they also won the then East of Scotland League, The Skol League Cup and the East of Scotland Cup in the Junior Football realm. They are now playing the the East of Scotland League Division One.

It is a cup tie so if it remains a draw after 120 minutes there will be penalties.
There will be a souvenir programme available to purchase on the day.
As is ever in the Scottish Cup it will be a match both sets of supporters should enjoy and really not know what to expect….hopefully The Jags fans will enjoy it more so.
