Winter weather was the winner at the weekend with only one junior football match surviving in the East Region.

However, the Gazette territory clubs will all hope to squeeze in one more match before Christmas this Saturday.

Glenrothes face a tough away trip to East Premier League leaders Edinburgh United who have a 100 per cent home record thus far with six wins from six league games.

Second bottom Glens, on the other hand, are searching for their first league win since September 6, and their first under new boss Benny Andrew.

In the North Division, promotion-chasing Kennoway Star Hearts will hope to keep up their good recent form at home to bottom-of-the-table Forfar Albion.

The visitors have lost their last five league games while Hearts have only lost one of their last six games, collecting 11 points from a possible 18.

Manager Alex Davidson could hand a debut to new signing Mikey Lee after snapping up the right back from Hill of Beath Hawthorn.

Thornton Hibs will look to build on their 10-1 thrashing of Forfar Albion two weeks ago in Saturday’s trip to Luncarty.

The Perthshire club has only managed one win in its last six league games and suffered a 4-2 defeat in Thornton in October.

All Saturday’s matches kick off at 1.30 p.m.
