Last weekend saw us playing a friendly against Linfield running out eventual winners 7-0, not quite the Bobby Sands scoreline that everyone was looking for.
There was a few additions to the squad for the game with new signing Phillipe No- Surrenderos playing for the first time as well as Joe Garner who scored and then had to go off due to injury only to come back on with a bandaged napper , a return from injury for Josh Windass.
Kenny Miller scored 4 goals with Keirnan, Garner and Kranjcar each getting one.
This weekend see’s us return to the midden aka The Girodome for the first league game in 4 seasons against them.
The game as always will be shown in the Bear Pit for members and their guests only, if you are taking a guest please make sure they are no supporting the dark side as a mild ‘chibbing’ may offend !!!!
The Bear Pit will be open tomorrow at 2pm with the game on live from 3pm, Derek the pub singer has flown in especially for the game so expect a noisy fun filled afternoon.
Some of the Baku Bears members will be playing a golf tournament tomorrow morning against the members of the less fortunate. Good luck guys
