Cowden v Arbroath

PostedAugust 7, 2009

Cowdenbeath Football Club will kick-off the 2009/10 season in the 2nd Division with a home game against Arbroath tomorrow afternoon, following the SFL Management Committee's decision to relegate Livingston to the 3rd Division for a breach of Rule 76.2, relating to insolvency, on Wednesday.

The SFL said today that the result of the match will be provisional following Livingston's decision to appeal the sanction.

Danny Lennon has spent the summer preparing his team for another bid for the 3rd Division championship.

"This is a massive boost for everyone at the club, the support and the local community", said Lennon.

"It was disappointing to lose out on promotion last season but the players now have the opportunity to test themselves at a higher level. We know how difficult a task we face but the players are good enough to make their mark.

"The players worked so hard last season and I'm absolutely delighted for them."

Following relegation the previous season, the Blue Brazil narrowly missed out on the 3rd Division title last season before losing to Stenhousemuir, who finished the league campaign 7 points behind Cowden, in the play-off final on penalty kicks. The wage bill has significantly been reduced since the last season in the 2nd Division with Lennon brining through a host of talented youngsters.

Darren McGregor, Jay Shields and Danny Mackay will miss out on Saturday due to injury but Mark Ramsay returns to the squad. New signings Gareth Wardlaw (pictured), Nei McCabe and Kris Bower are in the squad.
