We’re pleased to confirm that we’ve arranged three friendly matches at the Locality hub Bayview Stadium as we ramp up our preparations for next season.
We kick off our season by welcoming Lowland League side Cumbernauld Colts to Bayview on the 26th of June with an 8 pm kick off. Cumbernauld finished 6th in the Lowland league last season and include former Fifers Craig Murray and Stephen O’Neill in their ranks last season.
Next up we welcome our neighbours Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday 30th June (2 pm kick off). We last faced the Pars in the group stages of last season Betfred League Cup. After a 0-0 draw, the visitors picked up the bonus point with a 9-8 penalty shootout win – the standard of penalty kicks in this game was exceptionally high.
Finally, League Two title winning manager Gary Naysmith returns to Bayview with his Queen of the South side, which features former Fifer Scott Mercer, on Tuesday 3rd of July (kick off 7.45 pm). We last faced the Doonhammers back in April 2013 when goals from Stevie Campbell and Gareth Wardlaw had given East Fife a 2-0 lead at Palmerston with 15 minutes remaining, but a late double from Nicky Clark earned the home side a share of the points.
Admission prices for all three matches will be announced in due course.
