The next action for the Staggs Bar Monarchs is the home and away Knock Out Cup quarter final against Berwick with the first leg at Armadale on Friday and the deciding leg at Berwick on Saturday.

Said team manager, Alex Harkess, "Long gone are the days that a tie against Berwick would be a forgone conclusion with an easy win for us. The Bandits held us to 12 points in their visit earlier in the season and probably thought they were unlucky to lose by so many on the night and then they beat us down there just over a week ago by 16 points and we probably thought we were lucky to get as many as that. It will be a close run affair."

"From the management's side we're doing everything we can to give the team a boost prior to the matches but I'd like to encourage our faithful fans to turn out in numbers on Friday and really get behind the team. It's amazing what a strong vocal backing does to encourage the team. Let's raise the roof on Friday to help us get a lead big enough to defend at Shielfield."

We still have a number of places available for VIP hospitality for those that may wish to enjoy some food and drink during the meeting and discounted advance tickets are already available for sale online.
