Lomond Vics claimed the Falkland bragging rights at the weekend as they dumped village rivals Lomond United out of the Fife Amateur Cup.

Vics, who are a couple of divisions above United in the Fife Amateur Football Association, won the Myreside Park derby 6-3 to progress to round three.

Balgonie Scotia’s Fife AFA side failed to negotiate the first hurdle, bowing out 3-0 in their away clash with Rosebank Rangers.

In the second round of the same competition Glenrothes Amateurs made their exit, losing out at home 3-2 to the students of St Andrews University.

The other student outfit, United Colleges, were at Quarry Park to take on Leslie Hearts in a FAFA Second Division match, and they departed empty-handed with Hearts bagging all three points in a 1-0 win.

In the Kingdom AFA, both Star Hearts and Balgonie Scotia were on Glendale Plastics League duty, Hearts losing out 4-0 away at Rosyth Civil Service and remain bottom while at Coaltown, Fair City headed back to Perth with all three points following a 2-1 win against a Balgonie Scotia side who ended the game with only eight men on the park.

Both Scotis and Star remain on league duty this Saturday when they host Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts and Kettle United respectively.

Gathering league points will also be the order of the day for the FAFA sides.

In the Premier Division, Lomond Vics host Dysart, while the remainder of the games are all in Division Two, where Queensferry Albert visit Markinch to take on Lomond United, and Balgonie Scotia and Glenrothes Amateurs will both be on the road for meetings with Freuchie and Carnegie Thistle respectively.

There will be a local derby at Over Stenton where Glenrothes Strollers will be hoping to halt the recent good run of Leslie Hearts.
