Scottish Junior Cup semi-finalists Bonnyrigg Rose play the second of three consecutive home games this Saturday at New Dundas Park in the Super League, facing visitors Bathgate Thistle leading up to the Rose’s momentous first leg Emirates Scottish Junior Cup tie at home against Cup holders Auchinleck Talbot on Sunday, April 15, with a 3pm kick-off.

Last Saturday in the first of the three, Bonnyrigg beat visitors Dundee East Craigie 3-0 in the third round of the East of Scotland Cup to step into the quarter finals.

They now face a quarter-final away trip to fellow Super League’s St Andrews, who beat Stoneyburn by 4-1 in their own third round tie.

Joining Bonnyrigg in the East of Scotland Cup quarter finals are Premier League Arniston Rangers, following their own 3-1 away win over Lochore. Out of this top cup, however, went East Super League’s Musselburgh Athletic (lost 2-1 at Kinnoull) and Camelon (lost 3-1 at Dundonald).

The two other quarter-final ties will see Sauchie take on Kirrie Thistle, while Dundonald Bluebell will face a visit from Fauldhouse United.
