SUNDAY might traditionally be the day of rest, but Saturday is fast becoming a day off for Kirkintilloch Rob Roy FC.
The fed-up players are facing a third consecutive weekend without a competitive game.
Public holidays and Scottish Cup fixture clashes have conspired to keep Rabs – who are flying high in the league after a succession of impressive wins – off the park.
This Saturday prospective West of Scotland cup opponents Thorniewood United have been scheduled to play a league match rather than face the Kirkintilloch team.
At the weekend an experimental Rob Roy side went down 3-2 in a friendly against Newtongrange Star, while this weekend another bounce game has been organised – this time against Lochee United.
Gaffer Jimmy Lindsay said: “You would have thought anybody doing the fixtures at the SFA would have seen that we’d not had a match for two weeks and give us a game.
“Instead everybody apart from us has been given a West of Scotland tie.
“It’s frustrating, but the team morale is still good and the players are at least getting plenty of game time to keep fit.
“We just have to continue plugging away and keep the boys hungry for success.”
Rob Roy take on Lochee United at Thomson Park on Saturday. Kick-of is at 2pm.
Meanwhile, Rob Roy U14s were well beaten by Gartcairn 4-0. Man of the match was Scott Nealy.
