Went to FC Edinburgh (formerly Edinburgh City, now with a name change) today for their league cup game with Arbroath. Felt a bit weird going to a competitive match in mid-July but that’s the fixture list.

Anyway of interest to groundhoppers, it was the first game in their new stadium - sort of - they’ve moved back to Meadowbank. I’ve watched many Edinburgh games at the old place which was falling apart. The new one is only a three row stand down one side of the pitch and you’ve still the running track between the stand and the grass.

Anyway, Arbroath won 3-1 as expected and we’re back again in a few weeks for the Pars game in the league.

Went to Holker Street to tick another league ground off the list.
I guessed there would be a few kids wearing rags and dippers shirts, but there were also a few adults, one of whom wasn't very impressed when some Bradford City fans explained how much of a bellend he was wear a rag top at a Barrow game.
Steak pie was the highlight up to half-time, then Barrow went ahead, Bradford equalised, Barrow went ahead again with a few minutes remaining and Bradford equalised with five of seven extra minutes played before Barrow went ahead for the third time a minute later. I think the game finally ended after 9 minutes of stoppage time.
