Midlothian junior football round-up

There could be plenty of fireworks this weekend, but Saturday’s Emirates Scottish Junior Cup tie between Newtongrange Star and Bonnyrigg Rose turned out to be something of a damp squib.

With the game ending in a 0-0 draw, Star will head to New Dundas Park on Saturday for the replay.

And it’s not the only Scottish Junior Cup replay in Midlothian this weekend, with Penicuik Park the venue for the replay between Penicuik Athletic and Glasgow Perthshire. The teams’ first meeting also ended in a 0-0 draw.

No need, however, for replays for this week’s heroes – Arniston Rangers – who saw off their Aberdeenshire opponents Banchory St Ternan’s 3-0 at Newbyres Park.
