Although Tweedmouth Rangers have played at Millfield on three occasions, due to Covid curtailed fixture lists, Haddington have never played at Tweedmouth. Weather permitting, this will hopefully change this week when the clubs meet at Old Shielfield, Berwick in a Conference A match. Whilst Haddington have played Berwick Rangers in a friendly fixture at Shielfield, this will be the Hi Hi’s first competitive match south of the border. Manager Scott Bonar may still be missing a few players, but defender Corey Robertson is free from suspension and returns to the squad, as does defender Nick Aitchieson. With rivals Leith Athletic narrowing the gap at the top of the league to one point, with a convincing win against Craigroyston in midweek, manager Bonar and his players know that there is no room for complacency and will need to be at their best to secure three important points. Haddington certainly won’t lack support and for the first time in years, a supporters bus will make the trip south to give the Hi Hi’s extra encouragement. A feature of this season has been the increase in crowds at Millfield and the recent attendance of 287 against Ormiston, takes the average league crowd at Millfield this season to just over 200. Once you add in cup ties such as Deveronvale and Spartans the average attendance will be higher still. Long may it continue!
