Indian cricketers were sent running for cover this week when a helicopter pilot mistook their cricket pitch for a landing pad.The chopper landed suddenly on a giant “H” painted on the ground which was actually the symbol for the home team!
If you’re lost for somewhere to touch down this Saturday,then get your team colours on and head for Almondvale and cheer the “jags” onto victory in our push for promotion.

For the Lions, Chris Innes is suspended, which may cause a problem for Livingston to cover
