Women’s match advertised on the Jambos ticket site this morning

That would be an interesting game to report on - I can envisage long punts up the park 😂

I notice quite a lot of people, including experienced broadcasters, pronounce the plural as if it were the singular. Baffling.

But if they got their Sunday names it would be heart of Midlothian v Hibernian

Perhaps it’s to do with of its a place or geographical area its singular, but if it’s a shorthand collective name it’s plural

Celtic v rangers
Dunfermline v raith rovers
