A big welcome to our match day sponsors
Our match sponsor this weekend is Gordons Construction. We're looking forward to seeing them, along with their guests, in our hospitality areas on Saturday afternoon.
Our associate sponsor is InvestAcc. Regular sponsors and supporters of the club they'll be with us once again for what we're sure will be another fantastic day.
Our match ball sponsor is Borderbrite. They'll be taking their place with the ball in the centre circle ahead of kick off, so keep an eye out of them in the pre-match line up.
Keep an eye out on the pitch at half time as our academy under-10 lads go up against our under-11s. It should be a good game - pick your team and cheer them on!

The Supporters’ Car Park
With the weather expected to be changeable we will be making a late decision on the car park in the hope that it continues to dry out at the rate it is now.
Should it rain heavily again we would expect it to be too damp to use - so it's all down to what happens over the next few days.
Whichever way it goes we will, of course, keep you updated via the official website and on our social media channels.
Disabled parking is available as normal at the north end of the Pioneer Stand, and is for Blue Badge holders only.
Press / media parking is also available as normal.
Remember – access has changed due to new counter-terrorism advice. Both of our Warwick Road car entry points are now closed 30 minutes prior to kick off, with access then diverted to the Stonyeholme Golf Course entrance.
For full details, click HERE.
With updates provided by United Utilities earlier this week, it looks like the roadworks will be ongoing in the area around Brunton Park for some time to come.
Greystone Road - directly opposite the eastern entry to Brunton Park - has been closed, and a traffic light system is in place towards St Aidans Church.
This is causing long delays for traffic heading in all directions to and from the ground.
Please plan for what could be significant delays into your journey.
For a reminder on the guidelines for supporters using the car parks - with entry and exit restricted to 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after kick off respectively - click HERE.
Remember, you can purchase your match tickets by telephone on 0330 094 5930 or buy online and print at home, or order for collection, by clicking HERE.
Save £3 on match day prices [for games with no promotional offers] by purchasing your ticket before 5pm on Friday.
