Derek Riddel: ‘Big prize’ starts now for Leith Athletic

Have your say

Leith Athletic begin their Central Taxis Premier League campaign this weekend with a trip to Coldstream.

Manager Derek Riddel has been delighted with the start his team have made in the Qualifying League – they’ve bagged victories over Craigroyston (3-0) and Ormiston (6-0) – having been slow starters in recent seasons. However, Riddel is quick to stress that the league is the main focus for this season.

“I’m delighted with how the league cup section has gone so far, but we know we’ve still got lots to play for before any medals are handed out. The big prize for us starts tomorrow against Coldstream. But to score nine goals in our first two games without conceding is a great start.”
