Midlothian junior football round-up

Bonnyrigg Rose v Newtongrange Star
Bonnyrigg Rose v Newtongrange Star

A full league championship fixture list is set for this Saturday with top of the East Super League Bonnyrigg Rose seeking their 10th win of the season playing at home to Camelon Juniors, who shocked champions Bo’ness United by 3-1 on Saturday.

Both Bonnyrigg and Camelon are looking forward to Tuesday’s draw in Glasgow for the third round of the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup with Bonnyrigg having edged fellow Midlothian Newtongrange Star 2-1 in Saturday’s epic second round replay at New Dundas Park.

Joining the likes of Bonnyrigg and Camelon in the draw are Penicuik Athletic, following their excellent 4-1 home replay victory over Glasgow Perthshire at the weekend, and also East Lothian’s Athletics of Musselburgh and Haddington.

Dalkeith Thistle saw their South League clash away to Harthill Royal last Saturday postponed so this Saturday Thistle hope for a competitive game in the league away to bottom of the table West Calder who lost their own second round Scottish Cup tie last weekend 3-0 to Neilston.

Top of the South League Tranent Juniors, still unbeaten, narrowly won 1-0 at home to Dunbar United and this Saturday the Belters entertain Stoneyburn at Forester Park.
