PENICUIK ATHLETIC JFC UPDATE
After eighteen games of the thirty game league programme, Penicuik Athletic are lying in
sixth place in the sixteen team East Region Super League. In their second season in the
Super League after being promoted from the Premier League in 2014, Penicuik reached
the top of the tightly contested league for the first ever time after twelve games but a run of
indifferent results has seen them drop down the table currently headed by Bonnyrigg Rose.
Penicuik’s Scottish Junior Cup campaign came to an early end in Dundee in the third round
with a defeat by Lochee United. However, an interest is still maintained in both the East of Scotland Cup and
the Fife and Lothians Cup. Pumpherston Juniors will visit Penicuik Park in the second round of the Fife and
Lothians Cup with the winners scheduled to welcome the winners of the tie between Dalkeith Thistle and Rosyth. In the second
round of the East of Scotland Cup, a trip to Falkirk awaits to play against Camelon Juniors. Dates have not been allocated for
these matches yet but details will appear on the club’s web site in due course.
The club is currently looking for volunteers to help out on match days and with pitch repairs and maintenance after home games. If
you are able to help, contact club secretary Neil Gordon on 01968 677395. Full details of all of the club’s matches can be found on
Penicuik Athletic’s web site. CLICK HERE to view to view the Penicuik Athletic Bi-Monthly Newsletter
