East of Scotland Premier League side The Spartans are calling on Edinburgh football fans join forces to help the homeless at Ainslie Park this Saturday.

With both Hearts and Hibs not in action until Sunday, The Spartans are hoping for a bumper crowd for their crucial Christmas clash against Stirling University and entry is FREE for all supporters who ‘Donate at the Gate’ for the Club’s Ashbrook Appeal.

Santa Spartan will be on hand to collect all donations as the Community Club aim to put together packs of essentials for the Ashbrook Homeless Hostel on Ferry Road. Everyday items such as toothpaste, deodorant, shower gel, basic clothing items and non-perishable foods are welcome.

Thanks to generous visitors to the Academy over the last two weeks, the Club have already prepared a batch of donated items to hand over and kind hearted fans are asked to pop in a present this Saturday to give the appeal a final boost.

Spartans Chairman Craig Graham said:- “The Spartans have a strong community ethos and we are delighted to continue our support for Ashbrook. With our ‘Donate at the Gate’ scheme on Saturday, hopefully we can help raise a cheer on and off this pitch this Christmas”

The Spartans go into Saturday’s game (2.30pm kick off) sitting undefeated at the top of the Central Taxis Premier Division, however a win for the 3rd place Students would see them close the gap with games in hand.
