Auchinleck Talbot vs Arbroath – Match Preview

The William Hill Scottish Cup 3rd Round – Season 2019 / 2020

Saturday 23rd November 2019, Beechwood Park, Auchinleck, 1.45pm kick off.

The Lichties take a break from the SPFL Championship this weekend as we travel down to Ayrshire to take on SJFA West Premiership Champions, Auchinleck Talbot.

It has been well documented how difficult an opponent Auchlineck Talbot are having defeated Cove Rangers and Ayr United last season in the Scottish Cup before being knocked out by Hearts in the 5th round.

Manager Tommy Sloan has a skilful team who won a treble last season by winning the Scottish Junior Cup, the West Region Premiership and the Sectional League Cup.

Arbroath travel down to Auchinleck hoping to have a full squad available for selection.

Birthday boy Gavin Swankie has another week of full training under his belt and will be pushing for his first start.

It’s a long journey to Auchinleck but we hope you will be there as our 12th man and cheer the team on.
