BONNYRIGG Rose travel to Ayrshire on Saturday for their ‘match of the season’ so far, as they take on Irvine Meadow in the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup quarter-finals, carrying with them the best wishes of Midlothian as the last local representatives in the national competition.

Facing Max Christie’s men are Chris Strain’s Irvine Meadow – last season’s runaway Stagecoach West Region Super League Premier Division champions.

On Saturday, three Midlothian clubs scored four goals each and two failed to score, while Penicuik Athletic were toppled off their perch in Premier League.

Dalkeith Thistle, however, are back on top of the South League after the Jags’ fine 4-0 away win at Edinburgh United.

However, Arniston Rangers were beaten 1-0 by Broxburn Athletic at Newbyres Park – their 13th overall loss of the season – to see them anchored at the foot of the Premier League.
