Rovers take on Linlithgow Rose at Ferguson Park in Rosewell in the final of the East of Scotland Cup, (Kick off 2pm) and the whole team knows that victory would bring the first silverware since the creation of the club 10-years ago.

Ciaran told the Border Telegraph: “Sunday’s final will 100% be the biggest game of my senior career so far.

“We know it will be tough as Linlithgow Rose beat us in the final of the EOS Qualifying Cup in the summer but it was an end to end game that could have gone either way.

“They have big physical forwards but I think I’m ready for the challenge. It would mean so much to bring the cup back to Galashiels and make history.”

The former Hibs’ teenager’s form and attitude so impressed manager Martin Scott that he chose him to captain the side last week against the University of Stirling making him the youngest player ever to do so.

Border Telegraph:

And Greene, whose dad Shane also played for the club believes that Scott’s confidence in him has helped him to progress.

He added: “ I felt very honoured and proud to have been made captain last week. I got to the game and Jimmy (Martin Scott) handed out the team sheet with captain next to my name. The other guys were over the moon for me and my dad was chuffed.

“Jimmy’s a brilliant coach who is so down to earth and his confidence in me has helped my game come on. The Lowland League is tough, playing against experienced men although I’m used to playing against Celtic and Rangers youngsters from my time at Hibs.”

Greene has recovered from a serious ankle injury earlier in the season and was brought into the side when captain Gareth Rodger was injured.

Manager Scott rates him highly and believes he has a good future at a higher level in the game, but Greene is enjoying his football at Netherdale at present.

He said: “That’s good to hear but at the moment I’m just taking one game at a time, starting on Sunday.”
