We welcome SPFL newcomers Bonnyrigg Rose to the Locality Hub Bayview stadium this afternoon for our first home league match of the season.
There are a few familiar faces in the Bonnyrigg squad, most notably former Club Captain Kevin Smith but fans will also remember midfielder Jonny Stewart and goalkeeper Mikey Andrews from their time at Bayview with Alex Connor and Darren Smith also part of the visitor's coaching staff.
Lewis Anderson misses out this week with an ankle injury joining long-term absentees Connor McManus and Scott Gallacher on the treatment table.
New signing Joao Balde joins the squad after completing his loan move from Hibernian yesterday.
East Fife will be in our traditional home colours of black/gold strips, black shorts and black stockings with the goalkeeper in all-turquoise.
Bonnyrigg Rose will also be in their traditional colours of red/white shirts, red shorts and white stockings with the goalkeeper in all green.
This is the first meeting between the sides.
