We reach the end of the Championship season at Armadale this evening with the third attempt to stage our match against Newcastle.

After fairly heavy overnight rain it's generally been dry at Armadale so far with some drizzle on occasions and we are hopeful that all weather forecasts prove correct and we will get some late afternoon brightness and even sunshine. No matter what it is match on.

The Staggs Bar Monarchs are at full strength but the Diamonds have been forced into a late switch with Danny Phillips being forced to ride in a National League Play-Off by the SCB, contrary to SCB regulations, and at only 24 hours notice, contrary to all regulations. The Diamonds bring in Ryan Macdonald.

The Championship match will be followed by our final Northern Junior League match against Redcar and there will be our normal end of season speeches fitted in also including a major announcement from the Club. The coach to Edinburgh will depart after the end of all activities this evening.

Our 2020 calendar will be on sale at the Club shop for the first time and there will be other bargains to be had at the shop.

Supporters are reminded not to park in the neighbouring Birkdale Park and Mallace Avenue estates.

Gates open at 6.30pm and although tickets are still available to purchase online you can pay by cash or card at the gate.
