Keep an eye out for August’s competition, Which is coming soon!

Fixtures Update

I have updated the fixture list to include re-scheduled Phase 1 games that were postponed, either through Cup fixtures, Covid postponements or whatever other reasons. I have also added in some Phase 2 games to keep the teams playing where possible.I have listed and published fixtures up to and including November 20th.This was the date needed to close down Phase 1 in the Premier Division.

I have decided against going much further at the moment due to the rising incidents of Covid Postponements coming in.
I know that there will be some runs of home games or away games, but due to the circumstances that is unavoidable.
It will be under constant review and some of those runs might get broken up due to changes to incorporate Cup games and Covid postponements.

I hope I have your understanding and support. I’d also like to take this opportunity to ask if any teams would be interested in a fixture between 18th December and 8th January. There will be no games arranged during this period unless there is requests from clubs for me to arrange any.

Kind Regards

Matchday 11 Round up – Saturday 21st August 2021

With a host of WoSFL Clubs on Scottish Junior Cup duty this weekend it was a much reduced league fixture card with only ten league matches over our five divisions and a Strathclyde Demolition First Round Cup tie between Premier Division Rutherglen Glencairn and Division Four’s Finnart Star.

We start with the game of the day in the Premier Division where Clydebank and Darvel met at Holm Park. The visitors led at the break thanks to an own goal on the stroke of half time by Bailey and they doubled their lead as substitute Andy Stirling headed home after 65 minutes. There was late drama to come though and in with nine minutes remaining Clydebank grabbed themselves a lifeline when Jamie Darroch reduced the deficit firing home off the underside of the crossbar and then the Clydebank skipper kept his cool in the third minute of stoppage time for his second of the match to level the match at 2-2 with a penalty much to the delight of the home fans.

Kilwinning had yet to taste defeat in the league this season as they travelled to Townhead Park to face Cumnock knowing a win would put them back top with Auchinleck on SJFA Cup duty but that run was to come to an end at full time as a Findlay Frye goal after 31 minutes gave Cumnock all three points moving Cumnock up into 8th place in the table and the Buffs down to third.

Rossvale moved up to 15th with their first back to back wins of the season as they beat Bonnyton 3-1 at the Synergy Arena to leave Bonnyton without a point in their last eight matches and anchored to the bottom of the league. Dean McColm opened the scoring for the home side Bonntyon after 32 minutes from the spot and they took that lead into the half time break but Rossvale flew out of the traps in the second half to equalise through Jamie Young in the 48th minute. It looked like we were heading for a draw but Rossvale grabbed a second in the 85th minute courtesy of Ross McKenzie and made sure all three points would be theirs in the 90th minute when Conor MacDonald scored a third to give Rossvale a 3-1 win.

There was only one match in the PDM Buildbase Conference A where Maryhill travelled to Girvan knowing a win would move them above their hosts in the table and they went 2-0 up in the first half with goals from Ryan Wallace and Tony Etherson, Girvan pulled a goal back through Kieran Balfour as he netted from an Alan Orr cross with four minutes to go till half time. Girvan then got back on level terms five minutes after the break when Ross Clark headed home a Martyn Brown cross. Girvan had a great chance to go 3-2 ahead in the 55th minute but Craig Harvey missed from the penalty spot. This was to prove costly for the Seasiders as two minutes later Darren Kennedy regained the visitors lead to make it 3-2 to Maryhill and thats how it finished as Maryhill move up to 9th and Girvan down to 11th

Conference B also had only one match where Port Glasgow hosted Kello at the Port Glasgow Community Stadium and it was the visitors who went ahead through Kieran Pagan in the 17th minute but the Undertakers were level in the 35th minute when Jamie McKay levelled, and the Port took a 2-1 lead into the break when Thomas O’Donoghue netted with 4 minutes to go till half time. The Port sealed all three points in the 74th minute when Euan Campbell made it 3-1 to see the Port move up to 4th position in the Conference A table

Conference C had two matches and leaders Drumchapel took on a Saint Anthony’s side coming into the game on the back of two wins back to back for the first time this season and in good form but they were blown away by a Drum side who scored through captain Martin Grehan after 31 seconds for the first of his three goals, he notched his and Drumchapel’s second after 19 minutes to make it 2-0 and it was 3-0 shortly after when McMullin netted after 31 minutes. Grehan completed his hat-trick two minutes later to take the home side into the half time break 4-0 ahead. The second half was more of the same and Drumchapel made it 5-0 after 63 minutes when Ryan Deas beat Smith in the Ants goal. The Ants scored the goal of the game with a superb Shaun Gallacher strike to make it 5-1 on 67 but goals from the Smith brothers, first Cammy in 78 and then 3 minutes later Jack after 81 made it finish at Petershill Park 7-1 to Drumchapel

In the other Conference C match Neilston got back to winning ways after their long unbeaten run was ended on Wednesday night against Saint Anthony’s with a 2-0 win away to Vale of Clyde at Fullerton Park. A Cammy Haddow spot kick right on the stroke of half time gave the Farmer’s boys a 1-0 lead going into the second half and Jamie Docherty sealed the win in the 50th minute when he netted with an angled chip after Scott had saved from Bolger to lift Neilston above St Roch’s into 2nd place with the Candy on cup duty.

Kilsyth Athletic took full advantage of Finnart Star’s Strathclyde Demolition Cup duty by beating Campbeltown Pupils 5-2 at Duncansfield with a hat-trick from Jamie McAllister, as well as goals for Mikey Downs and Ryan Gibson, with 10 man Campbeltown’s two goals coming from Don McCallum.

Harmony Row moved up to fifth with Harthill on cup duty with a 1-1 draw with Glenvale, who’s 3 match winning streak was ended at New Tinto Park. The Govan side took the lead after 27 minutes through Harry Galloway but Ross Stevenson equalised with 14 minutes left to give both sides a point.

St Peters bounced back from defeat to Harmony Row in sensational fashion steam rolling BSC Glasgow 8-2 at New Western Park. Scott Arthur opened the scoring after the 27th minute and ten minutes later grabbed his and St Peter’s second ten minutes later and Macauley McArthur made it 3-0 two minutes later. Two minutes after the break Aran McDonald made it 4-0 and in the 59th minute got St Peter’s 5th goal. Captain Ciaran Friel made it 6-0 in the 66th minute before Martin Beckett reduced the deficit in the 72nd minute to make it 6-1. St Peter’s weren’t finished adding to their tally for the day though and two goals in four minutes from substitutes Ross Gemmel (79) and Anthony Gordon (82) made it 8-1 to the Paisley side before Matthew Melvin scored an 84th minute consolation goal for BSC.

There was also Strathclyde Demolition Cup action as Premier Division Rutherglen Glencairn faced off against Division Four new boys Finnart Star at the Hamish B Allan stadium. A goal-less first half, the match sprung into life only two minutes into the second when Glencairn took the lead from a Persley Sojila own goal, with the ball rebounding off the bar and off the unfortunate defenders head and into the empty net. Harry Mitchell made it 2-0 Glencairn with a fine effort from the D of the penalty box after an hour and eight minutes later he made it 3-0 with his second goal of the game with a superb free kick that gave Paton in the Finnart goal no chance. Scott Schoenville smashed home a fourth from an angle after 77 minutes to make it 4-0 and sub Marcus Fraser put the cherry on the cake in the 85th minute making it 5-0 to the Glens who now go into the draw for the quarter final of the cup.

Kilbirnie managed their first win of the season as they beat Bonnyton 1-0 at Valefield to leapfrog the visitors who now occupy bottom spot in the division. Glencairn had a fine 3-0 win away at Kirkintilloch Rob Roy, A Harry Mitchell goal and a Jack McIlveen double sending the Glens faithful home happy.

There was late drama at Newlandsfield with Pollok taking the lead in the 77th minute when Matty Grant opened the scoring but Theesel snatched a point at the death from the penalty spot when Owen McGinty scored in the 93rd minute and Troon thumped Glenafton 4-0 at Portland Park, 2 goals from both Ben Black and Sam Jamieson giving the Seasiders all three points.

Second place Shotts won 3-2 away to Bellshill. Bellshill opened the scoring through Matty Clarke and led at the break but second half strikes from Jordan Logan, Taylor Evans and Chris Meikle put the Bon Accord 3-1 up before Murray Loudon reduced the deficit.

Johnstone Burgh beat Glasgow Uni 2-0 with goals from Ricky McArthur and Malky McDonald and Forth beat Lesmahagow 4-2 at Craighead Park thanks to a double from Jonathan Branks and goals from Jamie Stewart and Josh McDonald. Lugar and Craigmark shared 11 goals between them at Rosebank with it finishing 7-4 to Craigmark. Muirkirk got back to winning ways, beating Girvan by the odd goal in 5, winning 3-2 courtesy of a Christian Nade strike and a John Herthton double, Grant Richmond and Kieran Balfour with the Girvan goals. Saltcoats Victoria got off the mark with their first win of the season, to move above the visitors Irvine Victoria thanks to a 2-1 win with Irvine Victoria missing a penalty with 10 minutes to go at 1-1 and Saltcoats grabbing the winner in the dying embers of the game. Whitlettts and Maybole couldn’t be separated at Dam Park as they drew 2-2, a Kieran McLaughlin penalty and a Cammy Ross goal put Vics 2-0 up but goals from Euan Smith and Robert Patterson from the spot gained Maybole a point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the PDM Buildbase Conference B Leaders Cambuslang suffered an early scare going 1-0 down to Newmains United at Victoria Park but SEVEN goals from Scott Williamson and a John Gemmell strike gave them an 8-2 win. St Cadocs kept right on their coat tails though with a 3-0 win away to Royal Albert.  Dalry picked up their first point of the season with a 2-2 draw away to Ardeer, Gallacher and Bridges scoring for Dalry either side of goals from Pirrie and McWilliams for Ardeer.  Gartcairn dropped further behind the top two with a 2-2 draw against Glasgow United at MTC Park, David Sinclair with a double for Cairn but goals from Steffan Graham and Jordan McGrotty saw the points shared.

Thorniewood continued their good run of form with a 4-0 thumping of Port Glasgow at Robertson Park with a double from Small and goals for Campbell and Seaton. Renfrew leapfrogged Greenock with a 3-1 win at New Western Park, a Craig Dallas double and a James MacLennan goal for the Frew with James Marks netting for Greenock. Ashfield emerged from the John Cumming Stadium with all three points as they beat Carluke 3-2, Dylan Dailly and Steven Frame put the home side 2-0 up but two goals from Ryan McManus levelled things for Ashfield before the break and then there was late drama as a Sean Doherty free kick 2 minutes into injury time gave the Saracen Park boys all three points.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last but not least in the PDM Buildbase Conference C St Roch’s missed the chance to go back top as Kilsyth got back to back wins for the first time this season with Stewart and Simon on target for Kilsyth and Kieran Daw on target for the Candy as Kilsyth ran out 2-1 winners at Duncansfield. It was turning out to be a good night for Drumchapel as unbeaten Neilston lost their first game of the season, falling 1-0 to St Anthony’s at McKenna Park, a Shaun Gallacher goal after only 32 SECONDS giving the Ants back to back wins for the first time this season in the league. Petershill beat Vale of Clyde 4-1 at New Petershill Park, goals from Onotu, Hall Sweeney and Docherty for Peasy with Murphy getting the Tin Pails goal. Yoker made it 3 without defeat as they drew 2-2 at Holm Park against Ardrossan Winton Rovers, Waddell and McCoist with the goals for the home side. There were also 2-2 draws in both the Lanark v EK Thistle and the Larkhall Thistle v Wishaw matches.

Matchday 10 – Conference C Preview – 21st August 2021

Our last preview for Matchday Ten takes us to PDM Buildbase West of Scotland Football League Conference C.

Theres already been a match played in Conference C, last night when Drumchapel moved back to the top of the table with a 2-1 win over Vale of Leven at the Donald Dewar Centre, goals from Cammy Smith and Gary Muir for Drumchapel and Lee McGeachy netting for the Vale, all goals coming within the opening half an hour.

Looking to regain top spot from Drumchapel will be St Roch’s, who ended Drumchapel’s 100% start to the season with a 3-1 win at James McGrory Park on Saturday to make it 6 unbeaten for the Candy, who travel to Kilsyth looking to make it seven. Kilsyth themselves will be looking to build on Saturday’s sensational 5-0 win away to Wishaw, only their second win of the season and having lost 4 on the bounce after their first win will be hoping history does not repeat itself.

Neilston remain Conference C’s only unbeaten side and they face a tough match against a resurgent St Anthony’s at McKenna Park. The Farmer Boys have only conceded four goals in the 7 games they have played this season, and have won their last five in a row, a 1-0 win over Lanark on Saturday the latest win. The Ants picked up a 3-1 win away to Vale of Clyde and have won 2 of their last 3, wins over both Vale’s sandwich a defeat at home last Wednesday to Ardrossan and manager Danny Taylor will be looking to end Neilstons 100% record.

Wishaw will be looking to turn their recent fortunes around as they have lost their last 2 matches and find a return to form that saw them win 6 of their first 7, drawing the other but they face a Larkhall side who themselves have been slightly struggling for results with only 2 wins in their last 6, although they were unlucky on Saturday, being pipped 3-2 by 4th place Glasgow Perthshire at Keppoch Park

Petershill take on managerless Vale of Clyde after the Tin Pail manager Mark McKay tendered his resignation following Saturdays defeat at home to St Anthony’s and will be looking to keep up their recent run of form thats lead to 1 defeat in the last six, a 1-1 draw v Ardrossan on Saturday keeping them in 6th position just above Winton Rovers who sit 7th. Vale of Clyde on the other hand have only 1 win in their opening 8 matches having lost four of their last 6.

7th place Ardrossan Winton Rovers face bottom side Yoker at Holm Park and it promises to be a tough match for the visitors as Yoker start to build some momentum after a dreadful start to the season saw them only pick up their first point a week ago today away to St Roch’s, a result they followed up by getting their first win of the season beating Vale of Leven 2-1 at Millburn. Ardrossan are unbeaten in three matches having won two in a row before Saturday’s draw with Petershill and a win tonight, coupled with the right run of results would see them break into the top five come full time

East Kilbride Thistle travel through to Lanark with the home side looking for their first win since the opening day where they beat Larkhall 2-1 whilst EK have 2 wins in their last four. A win for Lanark would see then leapfrog EK and possibly out of the bottom three  and a win for EK could move the Showpark based side further up the table

We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with the latest from around the grounds through our social media platforms from around 6:30pm tonight

Matchday 10 – Conference B Preview – 18th August 2021

Our matchday preview continues as we move on to the PDM Buildbase Conference B

Cambuslang Rangers opened the season with a 3-2 defeat at home to St Cadoc’s but since then the ‘Lang have been in great form winning all 7 games played since then and will head to Newmains tonight full of confidence and determined to keep their run going but Newmains will be looking to cause a massive upset despite having only picked up one point so far this season, a Matchday Two 1-1 draw v Royal Albert. Cambuslang came from behind against Renfrew on Saturday and recorded a fine 4-1 win whilst Newmains shipped 6 goals in a 6-2 defeat away to Ashfield

St. Cadoc’s will be hoping to remain Conference A’s only unbeaten side as they travel to Tileworks Park to face Royal Albert, who, like Newmains, only have a single point on the board to date, that MD2 draw with Newmains, where St Cadoc’s look to make it five wins in a row after Saturday’s 3-0 win over Gartcairn at McKenna Park.

Dalry have endured a nightmare start to the season so far with 8 straight defeats, shipping 45 goals into the bargain and they face another uphill struggle as they visit the Ardeer Stadium to take on this seasons shock troops Ardeer Thistle, who under the guidance of Sean Kenney have exceeded all but the most ardent of Ardeer fan’s wildest dreams to sit in third place with 6 wins, 2 draws and a solitary defeat to current leaders Cambuslang, they bounced back from that defeat last Wednesday to beat Greenock 1-0 at Ravenscraig and will be looking to pile on the misery for Dalry at Merksworth tonight

Gartcairn, as previously mentioned, will be looking to put Saturday’s defeat to St Cadoc’s behind them when they welcome Glasgow United to MTC Park, The Cairn fans will be hoping it was just a blip on Saturday as they were previously unbeaten before the match, having won five of their opening eight matches. Glasgow United hadn’t enjoyed the best of starts under their new name but are now 3 matches unbeaten and will be hoping to make that 4 come full time, confidence should be high amongst the Glasgow Utd players following Saturday’s 3-1 win at home to Carluke Rovers

With two wins in their last two matches Thorniewood will be hoping to make it three in a row as they welcome Port Glasgow to Robertson Park but the Undertakers are themselves in fine form, unbeaten in their last five with four wins and a draw moving the Parklea side up the table to sit 5th having netted an impressive 33 goals in their opening 9 matches. Both teams got wins on Saturday as Thorniewood beat Kello 3-2 at Nithsdale Park and Port Glasgow came out 5-2 winners at home to Royal Albert. 

Renfrew face Greenock at New Western Park looking to put Saturday’s 4-1 defeat away to Cambuslang Rangers behindthem and get back to winning ways but it wont be a simple task as Greenock will themselves be looking to bounce back from weekend defeat to Ardeer, a result that ended a run of two wins in a row. A win for Renfrew will lift them above their Invercylde based rivals as they currently sit a single point behind them with the same games played but defeat will see the Nock open a small gap between the pair

Carluke welcome Ashfield to the John Cumming Stadium tonight and the Rovers will be desperate to stop a run of 4 straight defeats but it will be difficult against an Ashfield team who hit Newmains for 6 at the weekend and have previously scored 10 v Dalry earlier in the season. Ashfield’s results have been pretty inconsistent so far with 3 wins 3 draws and 2 defeats from their opening 8 matches to date and the Saracen Park boys will be looking to make it 4 wins from 9 come full time

We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with the latest from around the grounds through our social media platforms from around 6:30pm tonight

 

Matchday 10 Conference A Preview – Wednesday 18th August 2021

We continue our pre match previews with a look at the PDM Buildbase West of Scotland League Conference A fixtures for tonight

Leaders Arthurlie may have lost their 100% record at the weekend following a 3-3 draw with Muirkirk, having been 3-1 ahead, but they are still unbeaten and will be looking to keep up that streak as they travel to Lochburn Park to play Maryhill who brought to an end their dismal run of form with a 1-0 win away to Forth Wanderers on Saturday having lost their prior four league matches and will be itching to build on that and get a winning run of their own.

At Rockburn Park Bellshill face Shotts Bon Accord with Shotts sitting in 2nd and Bellshill in 6th, A win for Bellshill would move them to within two points of Shotts, with a game in hand but the visitors will be looking to keep up the pressure on Arthurlie above them, and take advantage of any slip ups from the ‘Lie. Both teams are in good form with Bellshill winning 4 of their last 6 and Shotts 5 of their last 6 so it promises to be quite the match.

Craigmark bounced back from midweek defeat to edge out Johnstone Burgh 4-3 on Saturday and will be looking to return from Lugar with all 3 points and keep pace with the top two, and maintain their good form where they have taken 12 points from a possible 18 with 4 wins and 2 defeats in their last six matches. Lugar have endured a hard start to the season having won only 1 of their opening 9 matches, which was back on Matchday 1 where they beat Saltcoats Victoria 3-2 at Campbell Park and they will be looking to kickstart their season with a win tonight.

Whitletts are another side on a good run of form having won their last three in a row, beating Lugar 4-2 on Saturday and they face Maybole at Dam Park tonight who themselves have also won their last three but they still find themselves seven points behind their hosts having lost the three matches prior to their upturn in form, their latest match a 2-0 win over Irvine Victoria on Saturday. A win for Whitletts will keep them in touch, if not level on points with the teams above them come full time dependent on results.

Muirkirk will be looking to make home advantage count as they welcome Girvan to Burnside Park looking to turn draws into wins having drawn 3 of their last 6, they have only tasted defeat once so far this season and will be hoping to add another win to the collectio

 

n but Girvan will be travelling with confidence having won 2-0 at home to Saltcoats on Saturday, ending a 2 game run of no wins, having drawn and lost their previous two games prior to Saturday.

At Keanie Park, Johnstone Burgh will be looking to bounce back from that 4-3 defeat to Craigmark as Glasgow Uni come to town. The Burgh had enjoyed four wins in a row but defeat in their last two have stopped their progress up the table, sitting in 7th, and they will be looking to get back to winning ways whereas The Student’s could go above them with a win despite sitting in 12th place as only 3 points currently separate the sides, and Glasgow Uni have a much better goal difference. Glasgow Uni also had a free matchday on Saturday with their match v Bellshill moved to the 25th of August and they will be hoping the rest during such a hectic period will give them the energy they need to leave with all 3 points.

Lesmahagow find themselves sitting fourth bottom of the league having had a difficult start to the season picking up 2 wins and a draw, as well as 6 defeats in their opening 9 games, with no wins in their last 3 although they were narrowly edged out 2-1 by high flying Shotts on Saturday, Forth also come into the match on the back of a defeat to Maryhill and with no win in two but they put together a run of 3 wins in a row prior to that to sit mid-table and 6 points ahead of tonights opposition.

The bottom two face off against each other at Campbell Park as Saltcoats Victoria, who have yet to

pick up a point this season host Irvine Victoria who sit one point above them in the table after they picked up a point last midweek with a stunning 5-5 draw with Girvan. Both teams will be looking to take all 3 points and the confidence a win can bring to help them start to move up the table

We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with the latest from around the grounds through our social media platforms from around 6:30pm tonight

Matchday 10 Premier Division Preview – 18th August 2021

The PDM Buildbase West of Scotland Football league reaches matchday 10 tonight and it’s a packed card across four of our five divisions tonight.


Our Matchday previews start in the Premier Division where league leaders Auchinleck Talbot look to continue their unbeaten start to the season, which has saw them win eight straight matches after an opening day draw with Clydebank, most recently a 1-0 win away to Rutherglen Glencairn when Beith Juniors visit Beechwood. The visitors are looking to get back to winning ways after a loss and a draw in their last two matches, the latter a 2-2 tie with at home to Benburb.

Second place Kilwinning Rangers are also at home and hoping a win can close the gap should Talbot slip up, but it wont be easy for Chris Strain’s men as they face a Cumbernauld side led by Tony Fraser who have won 3 of their last 6 matches including 2 in their last 3, with Saturday bringing a home win v Hurlford. The Buffs are still unbeaten after 9 matches and have scored more goals (31) than any other team in the Division and they will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Rossvale, a result that was their second draw in their last three matches.

Clydebank find themselves on the road with a visit to the KG Stadium, home of Blantyre Victoria hoping theres less drama than their 2-2 draw with Irvine Meadow on Saturday that saw Nicky Little notch his 100th club goal in the 6th minute of injury time from a free kick to snatch a point when it looked like Meadow would be taking all three back to Ayrshire. They face a Blantyre Vics side looking to make it 3 unbeaten, having beaten Troon away at Portland Park, and then on Saturday drawing 1-1 with Kilbirnie Ladeside at the KG.

Pollok face Largs at Newlandsfield and will be hoping for a return to winning ways, having fallen to a 1-0 defeat away to Cumnock Juniors on Saturday, only their 2nd defeat of the season having won four and drawn one of their previous five fixtures whilst Largs will be looking to stop the rot with only 1 win in their last six having lost their last five matches in a row, the latest a 2-0 defeat at home to Darvel.

Speaking of Darvel, they face a stern test with a home match against Irvine Meadow, who as we have already covered must have thought they were gathering all 3 points on Saturday before a late Bankies equaliser. Darvel had a 100% start until a 1-0 defeat to Kilwinning Rangers, before a COVID outbreak saw their next 2 games postponed, They got back to league duty on Saturday and the aforementioned 2-0 win over Largs, where Darren Miller notched a goal of the season contender with an effort from inside his own half. Meadow can leapfrog Darvel in the table with a win so it could be a thriller at Recreation Park

It’s Landlord v Former tenant at Tinto Park tonight as Rossvale return to face Benburb with the hosts looking to get back to winning ways with a loss and a draw in their last two matches, a 2-2 draw at Bellsdale on Saturday and a 2-0 home defeat to Glencairn a week ago today whilst Rossvale will be buoyed with a 1-1 draw with unbeaten Kilwinning on Saturday being one of only four points they have picked up in their 9 games so far

Hurlford have been quietly going about their business and the Blair Park side sit 7th in the table with four wins, three draws and two defeats from their opening nine matches, however only 2 of those wins have come in their last 6 matches with a win sandwiched between two draws in their last three games, a 1-0 defeat to Cumbernauld on Saturday means a win for Cumnock at Blair Park tonight could see them overtake the Ford in the standings. Cumnock themselves have yet to draw a match winning four and losing four of their eight matches so far but they can take confidence from their 1-0 win at home to Pollok on Saturday.

Rob Roy welcome Rutherglen Glencairn to Guys Meadow looking to restart a winning run having won four on the spin before Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Glenafton at Loch Park. Stewart Maxwell’s side got off to a slow start losing their first four before a wins over Kilbirnie, Cumnock, Blantyre Vics and Bonnyton saw them climb to mid-table. Glencairn narrowly lost 1-0 to leaders Talbot on Saturday ending a run of three without defeat having beat Benburb 2-0, came back from 4-1 down to draw 4-4 with Kilwinning Rangers and drawing 1-1 at Blair Park with Hurlford

Troon face off against Glenafton at Portland Park tonight and the Seasiders will be looking to continue a decent run of form that’s seen them win two of their last three, winning 3-1 away to Bonnyton on Saturday but Glenafton themselves will be re-building some confidence following their 3-1 win v Rob Roy on Saturday, having lost the previous three matches before then. A win for Glenafton would also see them move level on points with Troon to give them an added incentive

The bottom two face each other at Valefield as managerless Kibirnie, fresh from gaining their first point of the season on Saturday after a 1-1 draw away to Blantyre, face Bonnyton, who themselves sit on three points courtesy of a 3-1 win over Pollok on Matchday 2 but theres been little cheer for them since then losing their next 6 in a row. A win for the Blasties will see them at least switch places with Bonnyton, for whom a win could see them climb above Rossvale if results go their way.

 

We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with the latest from around the grounds through our social media platforms from around 6:30pm tonight
