Midlothian junior football round-up

Newtongrange Star v Glenrothes
Newtongrange Star v Glenrothes

Newtongrange Star host Midlothian’s Match of the Day this coming Saturday when they are at home to fellow Premier Leaguers Penicuik Athletic.

Meanwhile, for near neighbours Arniston Rangers, it’s fingers crossed for third time lucky for their away trip to Stonehouse Violet in the third round of the Emirates Scottish Junior Cup.

Still top of the South League this week on goal difference are Dalkeith Thistle following their excellent home 2-1 win last Saturday over Spartans.

Saturday’s game was switched to King’s Park, but this Saturday Thistle take a rest from league duties and travel north to take on Kirriemuir Thistle in the second round of the East of Scotland Cup.
