Kennoway and Thornton will renew old rivalries this weekend.
Kennoway and Thornton will renew old rivalries this weekend.

The area’s junior footballers were able to spend the afternoon Christmas shopping as the card was washed out by Storm Desmond.

The area didn’t have it as bad as other parts of the country, but it was enough to see parks, roads and access routes flooded.

Only clubs with access to 3g surfaces were able to beat the weather which, sadly, was none of our junior sides.

But the three, Thornton Hibs, Kennoway Star Hearts and Glenrothes will aim to get their boots on this weekend.

And there’s a local derby for football fans to get their teeth into as Kennoway Star Hearts host Thornton Hibs.

Star currently sit in tenth place with Hibs a few places behind in sixteenth.

The last time these sides met was in a McBookie.com East Premier League match back on August 19 at Memorial Park where the sides drew 2-2.

Glenrothes Juniors will look to pick up their charge for the McBookie.com North Division title when they host Kirriemuir Thistle on Saturday.

Benny Andrew’s side have dropped to fifth in the league and welcome on form Kirriemuir.

It’s another game which is set up for a cracker with both teams on good runs.
