Some Junior News

By Chief Reporter Tom Scott

WISHAW Juniors have revealed Derek Holmes and Brian Crawford will be taking over at the Beltane with immediate effect.

NEILSTON Juniors have boosted their option on strikers by signing Scott Arthur, whose former clubs include Johnstone Burgh, Renfrew and Vale of Leven.

ROSSVALE Juniors, whose led at the top of the McBookie Central District League Division One has been cut back to two points by Benburb, have allowed Charlie Duffy to go out on loan to District League Two leaders St Anthony for a month

Former defender Steven Bain is on the look-out for a new club.

Meanwhile, manager Gordon Moffat, in the absence of a competitive game on Saturday, brought the squad in for a morning training session – followed by an afternoon visit to see his former club, Kirkintilloch Rob Roy, come from three down to beat Linlithgow Rose 4-3 in the Scottish Junior Cup at Guys Meadow, Cumbernauld.

Rossvale, who are on a winning league roll under Moff since he arrived in November, play hosts to Shotts Bon Accord on Saturday. Victory would mean nine consecutive domestic wins. 

NOT even the sound of Firm Alarm bells ringing pre-match failed to halt the progress of McBookie Super First Division pacesetters Petershill on Saturday, writes Tom Scott.

Goodness knows what triggered an evacuation of the Glasgow Life-run building (Glasgow Club Petershill) adjoining their Springburn base after the hosts and visitors Maryhill Juniors had already arrived, but the action took centre stage as two fire engines arrived – and then departed shortly afterwards having given the “all clear” signal to the assembled audience outside the Peasy dressing room entrance.

When the match got under way Petershill took a grip of the proceedings with two goals in quick succession from Ian Gold (24 minutes) and Jason Hardie (25).

Shortly after the interval break Alex Cassells made it 3-0 and although bottom of the table Maryhill –  now without a win in 13 games (5 draws) – gave themselves hope through a Reece McGillion penalty kick on 62 minutes, it proved to be game over when Cassells netted his second of the game with five minutes remaining.

CAMBUSLANG RANGERS remain on the coat tails of Peasy after securing a 4-0 victory against Renfrew at Somervell Park.

Remarkably, all the goals from Simeon, Morton (2) and Love arrived after the half time refreshments.

The Lang retained second place – seven points behind Petershill but with two games in hand – while Renfrew remain third, and Largs Thistle sit behind them in fourth-top spot.

At the other end of the table, Maryhill are basement battlers, with Larkhall and Shettleston above John Hughes’ squad.

Ricky McIntosh gave Town a share of the points with a second half goal at the Jags.
