Waverley all set for cup ‘adventure’ at Livingston

HAWICK Waverley are ready to take the long road to Loganlea tomorrow – at the second time of asking.

The Wilton Lodge Park outfit’s Scottish Amateur Cup clash was cancelled last week because of the weather.

And manager Bruce Hughes is just hoping it can be played after a seven-day delay.

He said: “The game was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch which was disappointing as we were all set to go to Livingston. However, we now have it all to look forward to again.

“Playing in the Scottish Amateur Cup is quite an adventure as it’s a massive competition.

“It’s regional to begin with, but that still means you have to travel quite a bit if you’re drawn away from home like we have.

“This is part of the fun of playing in the competition though as you get away to places you wouldn’t normally play at.

“Apart from a day away, it’s also a good night out, so it’s good for team bonding.”

However, he insisted his side will be focused on getting a result against the Stirling and District AFA side.

He added: “We did well last season and reached the fifth round and it would be great to match that or go even better this year.”

n Hawick United are in action in the South of Scotland Cup as they hosts Greenlaw.

The match brings former Hawick Royal Albert manager Lawrie Dunn back to town as he is now player/manager of Greenlaw.
