Jardine looking forward to Brora Rangers showdown

Edinburgh City boss Gary Jardine is looking forward to his clubs Scottish Cup tie against Brora Rangers. 

Gary watched anxiously as the draw was made at the Usher Hall last week, knowing that there was a possibility of a glamour tie away to Rangers.

Jardine watched his side had beat a top junior side days before and was hoping for another big name in the next round.

After the draw Jardine said “It will be a really difficult game, we played them four years ago and won three nil but things have turned full circle since then. They have a new team and have made their intentions clear and signed some great players.

“In the last round everyone was talking beforehand about who would win, will the junior team win will the seniors prove to be too good for the juniors.

“Its amazing in only a ninety minute game how much things can change, I am not going to say that whoever wins this game is the top non league side as thats simply not the case.

“We have started the season really well, and it will be good to go up against one of the top sides in the Highland League and we will look forward to it.”

City maintain their unbeaten run in the Lowland League and Jardine says his teams hard work is paying off.

He added “There is no secret to what we are doing, its boils down to hard work. Our boys were back in pre-season training in mid June. We wanted to make sure that we started the season well, we don’t have aspirations of winning the league.

“Our aim is to improve on the previous season and that has been something we have done for a few years, on and off the field.”

The next round of the Scottish Cup will take place on Saturday 1st November.
