Another job well done as we reached our second semi final within a week. With the playoff semi final at the Greenyards already booked for 24th March  we now definitely have the BT Cup semi final on March 31st. The Cup draw is on Wednesday but if I was a betting man I would put my money on a trip to Mansfield to take on Hawick after their huge win over Ayr but time will tell.

It will be great to play back at the Greenyards this week on hopefully a dry pitch as the last couple of weeks have been really tough. Through no fault of their own Marr have had the worst of the weather during the last 2 weeks and the pitch was heavy so the boys have their fingers crossed it stays dry and frost free.

Heriots will be tough as they simply must win to keep their playoff hopes alive . Equally we want a win to take us within touching distance of top spot. Hopefully we will see a big crowd and a high quality game.


The Captain's curse seems to have struck again as Pumba (Grant Runciman) damaged a shoulder on Saturday ,unfortunately it takes him out the running for a Club International cap in a couple of weeks time but hopefully he will be back for the business end of the season.


The Storm went down to a strong Hawks side on Saturday which puts Watsonians back in the running for the Reserve title. We remain 3 points ahead with a game in hand but on paper we have the harder fixtures to complete. We will probably need to win 2 from the 3 remaining fixtures against Heriots this week , Edinburgh Accies (a) and finally Stirling at home,

So two very important games at home this week

Lets enjoy these big games, it gets the blood flowing, its what sport is all about. Being involved in games with such meaning isn't the norm so let's get excited for having created the opportunities over the rest of the season and see where it takes us--- I mean Its just for fun isn't it---aye right
