Five games to watch in the East Region this weekend - 16/17 February

Written by 
 
Cup semi-finals in Dundee as well as the beginning of the East Region Cup take centre stage in the Region this week. Here are five games to keep an eye out for this weekend.
 
Dryburgh Athletic vs Ferry Athletic U17 - Stephen Elwood Trophy - Semi Final
 
Two of the top side in the DDYFA this season face off in what will be an intruiging cup tie on Sunday. Ferry Athletic are on a high after reaching the Scottish Cup semis whilst Dryburgh have already booked their place in one finals already this season.
 
Dryburgh beat Ferry's Scottish Cup semi opponents Fairmuir last week and will be looking to complete the double this weekend.
 
 
Dryburgh Athletic CC vs Jeanfield Swifts Blacks U17 - Stephen Elwood Trophy - Semi Final
 
While that is happening, the second semi-final in the Stephen Elwood Trophy will take place on not only the same day, but also the same field. 
 
Both sides are competing for the league title this season and this one could go either way as the teams have yet to meet each other in the league this season. There will be plenty of spectators at both games on Sunday for sure.
 
 
Newtyle United vs Broughty United Panthers U14 - East Region Cup - First Round
 
The East Region Cup starts this weekend and two teams competing for the Watson McInally League title will face off.
 
Three points separate the two sides going into the game and it will be interesting to see how these two sides fare as they face each other for the first time this season.
 
 
Kennoway Star Hearts vs Bayside FC Athletic U14 - East Region Cup - First Round
 
One of the more intruiging all Fife ties in the East Region Cup, these sides occupy the second and third spots in the FFDL.
 
The sides have met on two occasions so far this season, with Bayside emerging victorious on both meetings, but Kennoway will be looking to make home advantage count as they book their place in the second round.
 
 
Kirrie Thistle vs Brechin City YFC U17 - DDYFA Dave Pullar League
 
Two teams in need of points as they occupy the bottom two spots of the Dave Pullar League.
 
Kirrie have just one win to their name this season, coming against Brechin earlier on in the campaign. Brechin will view this as a potential opportunity to earn their first win of the season.
