Talbot face Cumbernauld this Saturday in a game we desperately need to win to keep our top spot in the league title race and this will see us come up against two ex-Talbot players Danny Boyle and Klark Thomson. Boyle will be remembered for his transfer request from Beechwood, While Thomson was a raw youngster when he joined the Bot.
The “Nauld” have been impressive so far this season except for two poor results where they went down 4-0 to Largs and were spanked 5-1 by an indifferent Pollok side. However they have enjoyed some decent wins over Cumnock, Hurlford and Troon as well as a share of the points at Clydebank.
Under the leadership of rookie manager Tony Fraser and his assistant Chris Zok the Guys Meadow side have enough about them to beat the dreaded drop, and showed this last week when dumping Kilbirnie out the Scottish Cup.
The match will be officiated by referee John McKendrick and his assistants David Miller and Gavin Cousar. Beechwood will have its new safety nets behind each goal in operation, but hopefully the only nets called into action are the one’s behind the Cumbernauld keeper.
