Lochee United kick off the Thorntons Property League Cup with a home match on Saturday against local side Dundee North End. The early part of the competition sees the club playing home and away against Dundee North End and Blairgowrie. Should we qualify from the group the competition reverts to a straight forward knockout cup tie. Our visitors have started the season well and currently sit top of the North League. Manager Ross Lunan has done well since joining the club and has assembled a competive squad including his brother and former Lochee player Paul Lunan. They have nothing to lose coming to Thomson Park and will in my opinion be a stiff test. After weeks of having only 12/13 players fit to play the Gaffer reported his full squad of 20 players trained on Wednesday evening. Obviously some are not match fit but he will have a bigger pool to choose from which can only be good. The game has the earlier kick off time of 2.00pm.
