Midlothian junior football round-up

Arniston Rangers v Oakley Utd
Arniston Rangers v Oakley Utd

THIS week’s Midlothian Junior football news reflects the highs and lows of the local game.

The highs being the awesome Bonnyrigg Rose achievement of reaching the 2012 Emirates Scottish Junior Cup semi-finals (to be played on April 14 and 21) while Penicuik Athletic and Dalkeith Thistle are at the top of their respective divisions.

Less successful are the luckless Arniston Rangers anchored at the foot of the Premier League following two successive home defeats before this weekend’s home clash with Broughty Athletic. Newtongrange Star’s up and down season saw them lose 3-2 away to Glenrothes on Saturday after the previous week’s 4-0 home win over Broughty.
