It’s the usual Trio on the Podcast this week, and it’s trebles that take up most of the theme for this week – but that’s not where we start.
The Scotland Women’s National Team played their final World Cup warm up game against Jamaica at Hampden and came through an entertaining game with a 3-2 win. Over 18000 turned up at the National Stadium, a new record for a Women’s International in Scotland, to lend their support to Shelley Kerr’s side ahead of the big event in France. We wish them all the best and hope they can do something the men’s side have never done in advancing to the knockout stages.
Speaking of the men’s team, Steve Clarke named his first squad as Scotland manager for the upcoming double header against Cyprus and Belgium. A minimum of three points from those games is required to kick-start our Euro 2020 qualification hopes.
Our focus then turns to the Premiership Playoffs between St Mirren and Dundee United. A forgettable first leg at Tannadice was followed by a penalty shootout at the Simple Digital Arena, with United missing all four spot kicks to preserve St Mirren’s status. Their celebrations were ridiculed by Tom English, an overwhelming Twitter poll result proves his criticism was over the top.
Saturday saw Celtic secure a hat trick of trebles with an Odsonne Edouard double clinching a 2-1 win over Hearts. Immediately after the match, Neil Lennon was offered the Celtic job, a decision that has split the Celtic support.
In the Juniors, Auchinleck Talbot are looking to clinch their treble in this Sunday’s Junior Cup Final against Largs Thistle in the Sam Sparro Final! Largs are looking for their first Junior Cup Final triumph since 1994.
Thank you to everyone who has listened and interacted throughout the season. As a treat, listen to the end to hear some of the utter nonsense that goes on before we officially start recording!
