Anything can happen in a cup game

Berwick Rangers are potentially just ninety minutes away from the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

The Borderers travel to Edinburgh on Sunday to play top championship side Hibernian. The bookies have totally written Berwick off before a ball's been kicked. But as Lori Carnochan has been to find out, anything can happen in a cup game:

The man who scored the most famous goal in the history of Berwick Rangers FC has passed away aged 75.

Sammy Reid caused a sensation by netting the only goal to knock Rangers out of the Scottish Cup 1-0 on January 28, 1967 at Shielfield Park.

The win is still regarded as one of British football's biggest upsets.

Reid had also played with Liverpool and Motherwell before moving to Berwick. He returned to Shielfield Park just last month when the club rolled out the red carpet to celebrate his 75th birthday.

He died at his home in Wishaw, Lanarkshire, on Sunday 9th November.

Carlisle match re-arranged

Carlisle United's postponed League One match away to Doncaster has been re-arranged for the evening of Tuesday 9th April.

The game at the Keepmoat Stadium had been scheduled for tonight but was called off because of a frozen pitch.

Blues boss Greg Abbott told the club's official website:

"There's a lot of football to be played between now and then so it's one we will think about as we get closer to the kick off date.

"In the mean time we want to make sure we continue to do our jobs properly so that we go into it in a good run of form.

"Doncaster have been really good with us with the way they handled this postponement. Nobody ever wants to lose a game to the weather but it was dealt with quickly and with minimum fuss.

"Our focus now is on the trip to Leyton Orient, so we will get the lads in over the next few days and start our preparations for that."

– Greg Abbott, Carlisle United Manager
