Season’s greetings to all our readers

Best wishes for the festive season from Heriot-Watt University Football Club.  May you have an enjoyable and restful break and may the new year be a peaceful and happy one.

As many will know, the Watt’s match against Jeanfield Swifts fell to the frost along with the rest of the fixture list last Saturday (the 15th), so the next game scheduled is on Saturday, as the East of Scotland fixture list contains matches between Christmas and New Year for the first time.  Assuming the weather permits, the Watt will travel to the Fife coast to take on St Andrews United at Barnetts Park (kick-off 2 o’clock).

The Watt’s Reserves had a home game on the 15th and with the John Brydson Arena synthetic in good condition, the game against Linton Hotspur went ahead, Watt climbing to fifth place in the Lothian West Division table with a 4 – 0 win, including another three goals from top scorer Lewis Whitelaw.
