For the first pre season friendly James McPake will take his Dunfermline side to face Dick Campbell’s East Fife at Bayview Stadium on Friday 28th June.  This is the first friendly between the sides since the late started 2020-2021 season. On 26th September 2020 the Pars won their third pre season friendly in preparation for the 2020-2021 season by the only goal of the game scored by Kevin O’Hara inside three minutes.

East Fife 0 Dunfermline 2

Assisted by Buckie Thistle holding Ross County to a 1-1 draw, a Lewis McCann brace ensured the Pars topped Group C after the first round of matches.

The opener came midway through the second half following a corner. East Fife had initially cleared the danger, but the Pars continued to push and Lewis McCANN finished at the back-post with a volley, after Benedictus headed the ball back across the six yard box for the striker to finish. 0-1

With seven minutes remaining, Aaron Comrie burst into the penalty box and was fouled by Liam Newton. McCANN stepped up and slotted the ball home, despite keeper Fleming going the right way.
