Lamb adds two Hearts players to his squad

BERWICK Rangers Reserves manager Mark Lamb has added to his squad by signing two young players from Hearts.

Callum Wyllie and Ewan Saunderson have both been recruited from the Tynecastle club and could feature this weekend when Lamb’s men host Civil Service Strollers in the third round of the King Cup at Shielfield Park.

The Reserves were due to host Craigroyston in an East of Scotland First Division match on Wednesday night, kick-starting a hectic schedule of fixtures.

“With Saturday’s match being a cup match I will probably rest a few of our players as we go into a minimum of 13 matches to be played within a six-week period,” Lamb said ahead of Wednesday’s match.

“Berwick legend Grant McNicoll has returned from a long-term injury so he will come into our plans.

“Depending on the Craigroyston match, we hope to have a full squad available for Saturday.”

Eyemouth United travel to Yarrow Park in the to face a Selkirk team they played just two weeks ago.

Carl Hudson’s men won 3-2 in the fixture at Warner Park a fortnight ago .

Selkirk manager Mike Mckinnon said: “As our game was off last Saturday this will be the second time we have met Eyemouth on the bounce. The last game was very close and I am expecting this one to be the same.”

Eyemouth are missing suspended striker and top scorer Steven Shennan, who is suspended. Alan Jess faces a late fitness test.

Selkirk are without Kenny Munro who is missing due to suspension.

Kelso United, who are on the boil at the moment, will be hoping to continue their recent successful run in doing the business against Craigroyston at home.

Hawick Royal Albert tackle Easthouses Lily at Albert Park without Jay Paterek who is serving the second of a four-match ban.

Jason Girdwood’s Peebles Rovers are away to Burntisland Shipyard.

With interim manager Stuart Robertson along with side kick coach John O’Hare in charge, Gala Fairydean are involved in King Cup action. They cross swords with Preston Athletic at Netherdale in a second round tie.
