Bonnyrigg Rose defeated Newtongrange Star on Saturday
Bonnyrigg Rose defeated Newtongrange Star on Saturday

The home side came out on top in each of the two Midlothian derbies in the Juniors at the weekend.

In the Super League Bonnyrigg Rose defeated old rivals Newtongrange Star 2-0 at New Dundas Park. While in the Premier League two late goals saw promotion chasers Dalkeith Thistle defeat plucky Gorebridge side Arniston Rangers 4-2 in a thrilling encounter at King’s Park. While, Penicuik Thistle lost 3-1 at home to Linlithgow Rose.

This Saturday Dalkeith Thistle could go top of the league with a win in their final game of the season against Dundonald Bluebell, however, with their rivals all possessing games in hand dreams of a title victory remain unlikely.
