Terrible group - the only slightly tarnished silver lining for me is that I might get a chance to visit Cove Rangers ground. I somehow managed to miss out on both league games couple of seasons back and the more recent cup game. Noted that ROTR was not impressed - but it's another to tick off the list at least.

Full fixtures for our group as below. Sorry Sam but you’ll have to wait to sample the dubious delights of Balmoral Stadium.

IMO the best allocation of venues but certainly would have preferred the trip to Inverness to be a Saturday.
Manager, Kevin Thomson, and Assistant Manager, Kevin McDonald, have today tendered their resignations which have been accepted by the club board.
Over recent weeks it became apparent that Kevin’s aspirations lay away from Kelty Hearts Football Club.
We would like to thank them both for their efforts whilst with the club. This resulted in our promotion to cinch League 1, winning the league by 21 points and reaching the 5th round of the Scottish Cup for the first time in our history.
We would like to wish Kevin Thomson and Kevin McDonald all the very best in their careers going forward.
The club have begun the process of identifying a new management team, we will update further as the situation develops.

For those interested I looked at hiring a private plane to get to ICT. The estimate was 5460 Euros from Cumbernauld Airport to Inverness Airport on the afternoon. That’s for 6 passengers and is only one way and doesn’t include transport to Cumbernauld or indeed to the stadium either.
Anybody want to share the costs? I’ll chip in 2% and you can make up the rest!😬
