Two local sides are still chasing promotion as the junior football season reaches a thrilling climax.

Kennoway Star Hearts are sitting second in the North Division behind runaway champions Dundee North End, but the Fifers will need the teams below them to slip-up in their games in hand if they are to hold onto the runners-up promotion spot.

Glenrothes are also still in the hunt for possible promotion to the East Super League.

The Warout side are currently eighth in the East Premier League and unlikely to catch the top two, however, with games in hand, there is still a chance they could clinch third place, and a play-off against the third bottom Super League side.

Results this Saturday could go a long way towards determining both teams fate.

KSH travel to sixth-placed Downfield - one of the five sides who could still overhaul the Treaton Park men - knowing that a victory is essential to keep themselves ahead of a chasing pack.

Glenrothes meanwhile travel to Premier League leaders Fauldhouse United where three points would push Glens firmly into contention for third place.

Thornton Hibs have climbed to 10th place in the North Division after winning three of their last four games.

This Saturday, they entertain ninth-placed Lochore Welfare, where a win would take them above their opponents and continue their push up the table.

Saturday’s games kick off at 2.30 p.m. Hibs are also in action next midweek, travelling to Downfield on Wednesday for a 7.00 p.m. kick-off.
