The Classic Border ‘Derby’

Our last visit was 2012 when we won 3-1 photo: Wikimedia

After a gap of 7 years, Berwick make the long trip over to the west coast to take on Division One side Stranraer at Stairs Park. Since then, Stranraer have established themselves in the 1st Division and it will be a tough game for our young side.

A familiar face for Berwick fans is former player Lee Hamilton who will be hoping to make his home debut for the Blues as they look to build on the narrow loss at Falkirk.

Team News for Berwick, Ali Smith is unavailable and Euan Smith ‘s partner is due a baby imminently so he (Euan that is) may or may not travel with the team. Good news is that Cieran Chalmers has trained all week and will hope to feature at some point on Saturday.

Admission prices are the usual for the Betfred Cup £12, £6 and U12s are free

Away supporters enter via the away turnstiles in the North Stand, or ‘Coo Shed’ as the locals call it.

All supporters are invited to the Pavilion Bar, which is located beside the away turnstiles. You are also welcome at the Stranraer FC Fitba’ Bar, which is a short walk away from the ground at North Strand Street in the town centre. Parking is free outside the ground.
