9/4 LWWWXW Largs Thistle 9/2 Petershill WWLLWX 4/7

After an unbeaten five game league spell in which they drew twice then won three back to back, fifth placed Theesel narrowly lost out to Medda last time out.

5/1 LLXXXX Maryhill 6/1 Cambuslang Rangers WWLWWL 2/9

Maryhill occupy bottom spot with five points from eleven league games after five draws and six defeats. Three of those defeats were by a single goal, so with a wee bit of luck things might not look as grim as they are. There last two were defeats to Troon and Largs. Rangers are sat nicely in third, nine points behind Peasy with a couple of games in hand and have won four of their last five in the league.

8/15 WXLLLW Benburb 9/2 Port Glasgow WWWLLL 12/5

Perthshire lost only two of their last seven in the league, against first and second Rossvale and Bens.

8/13 WLWWLL St. Anthony’s 21/5 Ashfield LWWWLW 11/5
