Scotia set for highest league spot

A 3-0 WIN for Balgonie Scotia over Lumphinnans United pushed the Coaltown of Balgonie side up to sixth place in the Glendale Plastics League - and they look to be set for their highest-ever finish since joining the Kingdom Caledonian set up.

The news wasn’t so good for Scotia’s Fife Amateur Football Association team, who fell to a 6-0 defeat for the second successive week, this time at the hands of Queensferry Albert in a Division Two clash.

Elsewhere in that division there were away wins for both Glenrothes Amateurs and Leslie Hearts and a draw for Glenrothes Strollers, the latter sharing six goals with the students of the United Colleges in St Andrews. Leslie Hearts made it three wins in a row with another high scoring 7-4 win over Carnegie Thistle, the Quarry Park side have now found the net 16 times in their last three outings.

Glenrothes Amateurs maintained their promotion push with a comfortable 4-0 win over Lomond United.

Lomond Vics continue to strive to get off the foot of the Premier League and this Saturday they welcome Dalgety Bay to Myreside Park.

In Division Two, free scoring Leslie Hearts visit FC Bayside, with Balgonie Scotia also on the road to face Dundonald and Glenrothes Strollers await Benarty in a fourth round Challenge Cup match.

In the Glendale Plastics League, Star Hearts will have Strathmiglo United as visitors to Treaton Park, while Balgonie Scotia visit Rumdewan to take on Kettle United.
