Exciting Premier Division Match-Ups for West of Scotland in 2019

By David Hinchliffe

Big summer matches at Hamilton Crescent

McCrea West of Scotland and Partick will both be in Premier Division action this summer, and it promises to be a hotly contested season for both sides.

The XI begin their campaign against Poloc at Hamilton Crescent on 27th April. The same fixture last season was a last over thriller, and the south side outfit always provide excellent competition.

Following from this, there are no easy fixtures with such a well contested league. However, the most exciting matches tend to be against traditional rivals who are strong opposition.

Mark your diary for the following home fixtures for the XI:

  • 01 June. Clydesdale
  • 15 June. Ferguslie
  • 10 August. Uddingston

Full fixtures can be found here.

The XI finished sixth in 2018 after promotion the previous season, and after some key signings in the winter, will be pushing hard for honours.

Partick, the West of Scotland Reserves, are champions of the Premier Reserve Division. The second team campaign starts at Shawholm also on 27th April. With an eye on another title, Partick's most interesting home matches are:

  • 04 May. Nunholm
  • 29 June. Shawholm
  • 03 August. Titwood
  • 17 August. Meikleriggs

Full fixtures can be found here.

Spectators are welcome at Hamilton Crescent for matches to provide the excellent, vocal and largely partisan support that is famous at West. Match sponsorships are also available for home fixtures, and count as a beneficial investment.
