Bonnyrigg Rose v St Andrews United

The Emirates Scottish Junior Cup first round ties last Saturday produced a variety of results.

However, Penicuik Athletic face a tough replay at Warout Stadium this Saturday after being held to a 1-1 draw by fellow Premier Leaguers Glenrothes.

Newtongrange Star halted a recent run of defeats to squeeze out Scottish Cup visitors Longside by 2-1 but champagne Dalkeith Thistle hit their 27th goal of the season in winning their Scottish tie by 5-1 away at Peterhead’s Buchanhaven Hearts.

Meanwhile, in the East Region Super League last Saturday it was a 5-2 winning scoreline for Bonnyrigg Rose at home to newly-promoted St Andrew’s United. Next up this Saturday is a visit for unbeaten in the league Bonnyrigg to Olivebank and a “match of the day” between the Musselburgh Athletic and the Midlothian Rose.
