Girvan are at home to Muirkirk Juniors in the second round of the Scottish Junior Cup at Hamilton Park this weekend.

The match kicks off on Saturday (October 22) at 2.30pm.

Muirkirk are currently bottom of the Ayrshire District League having failed to gain any points after six games.

Last week we reported how the club want the town to show its support by increasing the turn out at matches, local people joining the club committee and volunteering to help on match days.

Manager Peter Leonard said: “This is a rallying call to everyone in Girvan. We need supporters to turn out and support the side. They are a great team, winning the league unbeaten last year, and we have had some excellent football this season in the super league.

“We’re asking locals to do what they can for the club, whether it is just turning up on a Saturday to support the team, or volunteering to help with the running of the club, we want to hear from you.”

The club are looking for volunteers to help with everything from putting up the nets on match days to selling programmes and everything in-between.

Peter added: “We’re a decent team playing attractive football and we would really like to see mums and dads bringing their kids along to the games. The club are building something good here and we want the town to come and support us as we don’t want to see it all wither on the vine, so to speak.”

“We have a great wee park and good facilities here at Hamilton Park.”
