East Region Review

In the Super League Kelty Hearts continued their march towards winning the title with a comfortable victory over Fauldhouse United. The unbeaten men from Central Park now have a lead of sixteen points over Bonnyrigg Rose who do have games in hand due to their senior Scottish Cup exploits.

Other results of note include the fast improving Carnoustie winning away to Dundonald and Penicuik under the stewardship of Johnny Harvey going third after a win at Camelon.   Down at the bottom Fauldhouse, Newtowngrange and Jeanfield will be hoping for some points before the festive break.

The premier league saw a big win for shock leaders Forfar West End away to St Andrews as they look to regain the super league status they lost when they went into abeyance a few season back.  There was also a big win for Armadale Thistle away to rivals Bathgate and other results of note were fancied Kennoway Star Hearts crashing three nil at home to Tranent.

The North Division saw victories for the top two with both Kinnoul and Thornton Hibs winning comfortably as they look to get back to the Premier League.

In the South Division second place Pumpherston managed a seven two victory away to Kirkcaldy YM and the leaders Blackburn recorded a two nil win at bottom place Stoneyburn,  In the six games that were played the sides managed to muster between them an impressive twenty six goals.

Yesterday was also Scottish Cup day and plenty of East sides were in action though the game that has caused most interest was Bo’ness v Blantyre which the away side won on penalties causing a massive shock.  This may not be the end of it though as referee Chris Graham managed to get the rules of the competition wrong, played fifteen minutes of extra time despite being told he was wrong and finally concluded the game on penalties that were taken in darkness.

Elsewhere,Broughty pulled off an impressive five one victory at Downfield and Linlithgow Rose romped past Dundee North End.  Musselburgh pulled off a good win at Lochee and one of the tournament favourites Bonyrigg Rose will need a replay after drawing at Thorniewood
