The annual Junior Legends event returns to Barrhead on Sunday, April 30.
From the original game between Arthurlie and Pollok in September 2008, the event has grown year on year and will once again be hosted at Lie’s Dunterlie Park for a 10th anniversary event that will include five games over the afternoon.
The day kicks off at midday with a game between Arthurlie and Pollok supporters played over 25 minutes each way.
Stuart McDonald will be taking the Pollok side while Gerry McArthur will make the calls for Arthurlie.
At 2pm the Legends event itself kicks off with Neilston against Pollok, the same 25 minute each way format will be in place for all the male games.
Pollok will be taken by ex-manager Rab Sneddon who will have the likes of Robert Anderson, Kevin O’Neil, and Bryan Dingwall in his squad alongside guest for the day Glenafton Athletic manager Craig McEwan.
Jim Hannigan takes Neilston ably assisted by Jim Forrest and they will have the likes of Andy Whiteford, Brian Hewitt, and Gary Sturrock in their side.
Also pulling on the famous red jersey will be current Largs Thistle manager Stuart Davidson who had a spell with the Farmer’s Boys alongside Paul McNeill from the SFA and John McKeown, the current manager of Cumnock.
At 3pm holders Arthurlie enter the fray. The management duo of Willie Young and Billy Curran have yet to taste defeat as a partnership and will be hoping to retain the trophy.
Kris Robertson will be between the sticks with Steven Convery and Gavin Duncan involved alongside many others and also Stuart Maxwell, the current Kirkintilloch Rob Roy manager, who played three years ago, guesting for the Lie again.

The Ants will be boosted by ex-players who are better known for their exploits at Auchinleck Talbot, Steve Mallan and Del McCulloch.
At 3pm the event will host its first ever ladies’ game. Teams will be arranged on the day, if you fancy a game just come down to the pavilion end and leave your name, trainers will be required.
All proceeds raised will go to Erskine Hospital with entry on the day by donation, give as much or as little as you wish, but come along and enjoy what promises to be a special day.
