Hearts B kick-off the Lowland League 23/24 season by hosting Gretna 2008, at Ainslie Park on Friday night.

Ainslie Park is a familiar destination for those involved in the Lowland League – being the home of last season’s Champions and now newly-promoted League Two side, The Spartans.

With last season’s manager, Steven Naismith now part of the First Team setup at Tynecastle, it’s up to former Cowdenbeath and Dundee United manager, Liam Fox to improve on The Young Jambos inaugural season in the Lowland League – where they finished thirteenth.

As for Gretna 2008, it’s been six years since they finished in the top half of the table. Last season saw them finish 17th on 26 points – much improved from the 21/22 campaign that saw them flirting with relegation, managing only two wins and eleven points.

A big season for The Anvils – Bryan Gilfillan will be looking to reignite the form of one of the greatest underdog stories in Scottish Football, this side of the millennium.
