Eight City players feature at the weekend

EVERYONE at City sends their best wishes to Conor McGrandles, who sadly suffered a double leg break in Falkirk's 1-0 win at Morton on Saturday.

McGrandles only entered the field as a 78th-minute substitute but picked up the injury following a collision with Morton's Joe McKee.

Bairns boss Peter Houston said afterwards: "My thoughts are more with Conor than being delighted with any victory. He's a young lad we've brought up from Norwich; a former Falkirk player. It's certainly put a huge dampener on what was a valuable three points for us."

Just want to thank everyone for there messages not been able to reply to them all just want yous to know they are appreciated. 👍💚
