Match Preview v Broomhill (5th Sept)

We have a break from the league this weekend and a change from the Saturday afternoon kick off time as we welcome Lowland League side Broomhill at 2pm on Sunday in the second round of the SPFL Trust Trophy.

It’s a bit of a historical moment as the two sides have never played each other in a competitive match before. The visitors have only been in existence for seven years, formed in 2014 in the Broomhill area of Glasgow. As a senior team associated with the local sports club, they originated under the name BSC Glasgow and joined the 5th tier of Scottish football. They were renamed at the start of this season. In 2016 they moved their home games from Glasgow and now groundshare with Alloa Athletic.

They play in the Scottish Lowland league and currently sit 13th in the table on 9 points from their opening 10 games. They went down 2 – 1 on Tuesday night in their last game away at East Kilbride.

The winners will host either Stranraer or Partick Thistle (who play their game tomorrow) in the third round, next month.

Looking ahead to the game, Manager Allan Johnston said “It was disappointing that we didn’t take anything from our home game against Hamilton last week. We all know that the first half performance wasn’t good enough but we turned things around in the second half and I though we deserved to take something from the game.

Broomhill are new opposition for us so it will be a different challenge for us but it’s good to have some freshness about the fixture.

They have already knocked out league opposition with a first round victory over Clyde so we can’t afford to be complacent.

It is up to ourselves to stay focused and make sure we are in the next round”.

Supporters Information

We still have red zone restrictions in place so certain areas of the ground, including the Alpha Solway stand remain out of bounds for supporters.

Turnstiles 1 and 2 should be used to access the BDS Stand. With turnstiles 16 & 17 for entry to the terrace. Please do not use 16 & 17 to gain entry to the BDS stand. These are for the terrace only and the stewards will not be permitted to allow transfer between the terrace and stand.

Entry is by ticket only. Please note that season tickets are not valid for this match.

Tickets have been priced at £10 for Adults, £5 for OAP's Students, 16-21 year olds, under 16's and all Accessible tickets (price includes one carer). Pre-school children will be free. Tickets can be purchased on the day from the ticket booths located within the QOS Arena and the BDS Stand.

The Arena ticket office will be open from 1130 with the BDS Stand ticket offices open from 1200. Please note that the BDS Stand ticket offices are CASH ONLY. Spectators are requested to bring the correct ticket money with them. This will ease pressure on the ticket office.

Wheelchair access for away supporters is on the south side of BDS Digital stand. There is a layby on King Street for vehicles to drop their passengers for flat access to the ground. Disabled parking is available on the north side of the BDS Digital Stand or at the Arena car park. The cost of entry of 1 personal assistant is included in the price of the accessible ticket.

Car parking will be available to all spectators within the Queen of the South Arena car park. It is suggested that buses/minibuses drop off their passengers in Terregles St/King Street and thereafter park on College Mains road just off the roundabout with the A76 on the town bypass (adjacent to Curry’s/PC World, as the other side at Aldi is the access road to the ambulance depot and is extremely busy). Pick up should be the same location as drop off. Supporters buses including minibuses will not be allowed to park in the Arena car park.

There are no ongoing roadworks currently around Dumfries that may affect travel times to Palmerston Park. Fans should check the Traffic Scotland website at for confirmation of any delays.

QOS have adopted a robust and thorough search policy for spectators entering the ground to ensure that ground rules and regulations are strictly adhered to, especially in relation to pyrotechnic devices and controlled containers. All bags will be searched and spectators presenting themselves for entry may also be subject to search. Spectators who refuse to be searched by stewards will be denied entry to the ground.

Palmerston Park is a non-smoking venue, this includes e cigarettes and other such devices. Stewards are empowered to eject spectators who disobey these rules. No persons will be admitted to the ground who are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol.
