Hibs ace Weir gets set to join Vale

VALE OF LEITHEN square up to Heriot Watt University on Saturday and after a dismal few weeks Fraser Ogilvie believes fortunes can turn.

To help him the Vale co manager has brought in former Hibs man Mickey Weir and former Lothian Thistle boss Chic McAleavy.

“I have worked with both men when I was at Lothian Thistle and asked them if they would join us when they became available,” said Ogilvie.

“Mickey wasn’t going to be with us until next season, but he turned up at training last Tuesday and was on board by the game on Saturday.

“They both have a wealth of experience behind them, so if anyone can get us back on track they can.”

Gala Fairydean return to action this weekend, travelling to face Leith athletic at Meadowbank.

Gala are without the suspended Grant Gass, but Jack Hay returns from his ban.

Elsewhere, Selkirk take on Easthouses at Yarrow Park, Hawick Royal Albert host Ormiston at Albert Park, Peebles Rovers travel to Duns and Kelso United tangle with Burntisland Shipyard in Fife.
