NEWMAINS UNITED’S stars reckon a good night is on the cards this Saturday.

But they’re convinced Josh Anderson is odds on to come out on top.

The club hosts its first ever professional casino night in the Davie Cooper Suite at Fir Park following their home clash with Muirkirk.

Entry is free, with awards for player of the year and players’ player of the year presented and free food be dished up by home shirt sponsors The Pink Turban.

Anyone is welcome to come along and you don’t need an association with the club.

But United’s players wouldn’t be surprised to see luckiest man alive Anderson walk away with the top cash prize following his weekend win on the horses.

Winger Cammy Browning said: “Josh has to be the luckiest player in our dressing room. He plays in midfield with his best mate Andrew MacKenzie and drew the favourite for the Grand National in the sweepstake at the weekend.

“Josh will be the one to watch at the casino night, that’s for sure.”

Goalie Martyn Meek couldn’t argue Browning’s prediction. He said: “For me Josh has got to be the guy who’s the luckiest guy around. You wouldn’t be surprised to see him finish as the winner.”

The event starts at 7.30pm, with tables for roulette, 21 and blackjack starting as soon as the awards have been dished out. Music will be provided by Dougie DJ while there will also be a raffle.

There’s no need to book – just turn up on the night and bring your friends and family. Meek reckons he’s got his tactics worked out already after previous successes.

He said: “I’ve done really well on the tables in the past. The important thing is to know when to walk away.”

Browning is hoping it’s first time lucky. He added: “I’ll be a rookie on Saturday so I’ll be looking for some beginners luck.

“It’s a great idea from the club to have a casino night as part of the layer of year night.

“It’s a unique way to get people along and to show an appreciation to everybody who’s involved at the club whilst having a bit of fun too.”
