KELTY Hearts will kick off life in the SPFL with a Fife derby as they welcome Cowdenbeath to New Central Park.

The Blue Brazil will make the short journey across Central Fife to take on Kevin Thomson’s men on Saturday, July 31, at 3pm.

It will be an eagerly awaited clash between the two sides with both outfits looking to make an immediate impression.

Following the first match, Kelty will take on Stirling Albion, and Forfar Athletic away from home before Edinburgh City make the journey across the Forth.

Cowdenbeath’s first home game will see Gary Bollan’s men take on Elgin City before Stranraer also make a trip to Central Park, followed by an away day to Stenhousemuir.
