Shire will play one final match before facing East Fife in the opening match of the 2007/08 season on Saturday.

Coach Gordon Wylde has organised a hastily-arranged game against a Morton XI. The game will go ahead on Tuesday 31st July at Little Kerse in Grangemouth with a 7:15pm kick-off.

Wylde has admitted the team has perhaps not played enough in the run up to the start of the league campaign, and this match will, hopefully, give his players some badly-needed match practice ahead of the trip to New Bayview.

“It will be a useful exercise,” said Wylde. “I will mix and match the players, giving some first teamers and some of the reserve side a run out.”
