There were mixed fortunes for the local amateur football sides at the weekend.
The Kinross-Star Hearts Glendale Plastics League match came to a premature end only a minute into the second-half, following a serious injury to Star player Craig Green who had only come on as a substitute at half-time.
There had been no malice in the challenge from the Kinross player and it appears the Star man had caught his foot in the boggy ground and sustained fractures to the lower leg area.
The scoreline stood at 1-1 at the time.
Balgonie Scotia failed to make it back to back wins as they went down 4-1 to Leven United.
Star will host Scotia in a local derby at Treaton Park this Saturday.
In the Fife Amateur Football Association Premier league, visitors Newburgh Juveniles left Falkland with all three points following a 2-1 triumph over Lomond Vics.
Glenrothes Strollers are still looking for their first win of 2012 after losing out 2-1 at home to Dundonald, Balgonie Scotia netted all three points with a 2-1 home win over Freuchie.
Glenrothes Amateurs exited the League Cup at the second round stage going down 2-0 at Dalgety Bay, but there was better news for Leslie Hearts as they progressed in the Division Two Cup by virtue of a 3-1 win over Carnegie Thistle.
It’s league duty for all the Fife AFA sides this week. In the Premier Division Lomond Vics host Pittenweem Rovers while in Division Two Glenrothes await FC Bayside, Leslie Hearts host Kirkcaldy Rovers while Balgonie Scotia hit the road for a meeting with Dundonald.
