Pitfour FC vs Monifieth Athletic U17

The DDYFA Dave Pullar League’s top two will clash this weekend as leaders Pitfour take on Monifieth Athletic.

The two have not met in the league since the opening match of the season back in August, and on that occasion it was Pitfour that came out on top 1-0. That win has given them the three point lead they have at the top of the table.

They have been chased all the way by Monifieth, and a win for the Tayside team at the weekend will bring them level at the top, making the race in the league extremely exciting.

Maryfield United vs Bridge of Earn U16

These two will be putting their league campaigns on hold for the moment as they compete for a place in the J Cord Cup Final this weekend.

There is very little to separate the two in terms of their league campaigns. Bridge of Earn sit at the top of the Bodycare Complementary Clinics League, four points ahead of Maryfield who have played one game more.

Bridge of Earn won the last meeting between the two securing a fairly comfortable 3-0 win in the end, a result that Maryfield will be keen to put behind them with a win this weekend.

A final spot against the winners of the second semi final between Montrose Youth and Dundee West awaits the winners of what is sure to be a classic cup semi this weekend.

AM Soccer vs Blue Brazil U15

Moving over to Fife and the top two in the First Division in the FFDL clash as AM Soccer host Blue Brazil in a match that could see a new leader at the top.

Blue Brazil hold top spot for now, sitting two points ahead of AM Soccer having played three games more than their opponents this weekend.

AM Soccer have the advantage in that they have more than one opportunity to catch up at the top, but a win this weekend would be a massive boost as it will put them at the top of the pile going into the rest of the season.

Benarty Astros vs Glenrothes Strollers U19

It’s not often that you get one game involved in consecutive games to watch articles, but the rivalry developing between Benarty Astros and Glenrothes Strollers is so enticing it is difficult to avoid.

Last week the two faced off in the semi final of the League Cup, with Benarty Astros picking up an impressive 4-1 win. Now the two will clash in the quarter finals of the Fife Cup.

The loss will have hurt Strollers, who have not tasted defeat very often this season, and they will be keen to put the record straight with a win this weekend.

Montrose Youths vs Fairmuir BC U15

And finally a place in the final of the Jean Pierre Babin Cup is on the line as Montrose Youths and Fairmuir BC face off this weekend at Kenny Park.

These two have had outstanding seasons so far, and both still find themselves well in the title race in the G Taylor League, along with the league leaders and fellow semi finalists Maryfield United.

Montrose find themselves with the unenviable task of trying to end Fairmuir’s unbeaten record this season. The Dundee side have a perfect record in the league and have also been flying high elsewhere.

Fairmuir have a Scottish Cup semi final to look forward to against Greig Park Rangers and will be looking to continue their quest to win as much silverware as possible this season.
