Last weekend's action across the country was largely halted by the intervention of Jack Frost. Fortunately the snow has seemed to pass and we are looking at having a full card of fixtures on show this weekend.

 

Cup competitions are the focus this week, with Scottish Cup quarter finals taking place at U13 and U14 level.

 

Here are the pick of the games from across the country this weekend:

 

 

 

Portobello CFA vs West Lothian U13 - Stewart Brien Cup - Quarter Final

Both of these sides occupy the top two places in the SERYFA U13's First Division, meaning that we can expect a really close contest in thei Stewart Brien Cup Quarter Final match.

Portobello will go into the match as favourites, having fared much better in cup competitions this season than their opponents, as well as still holding a 100% record in the league.

West Lothian will be motivated however. They are in good form and sit top of the league at the moment. They will also be looking to avenge their defeat against Portobello earlier in the season in the Lothian Buses Cup, losing 5-2. Here is hoping for another high-scoring game on Sunday.



Dundee Celtic BC vs East Craigie Swifts U15 - Tommy Clark Trophy - Semi Final

These two played each other in December, with Dundee Celtic emerging as 1-0 winners, and a close match is expected once again in this highly anticipated semi final clash in the DDYFA.

Both sides are pushing hard in the league, occupying the second and third spots in the DDYFA U15s G Taylor League. Celtic occupy second, just two points above East Craigie having played one game more.

East Craigie will be looking to avenge their defeat to Celtic earlier in the season and both teams will be hoping that this game beats the weather.

 

 



Banks O'Dee Albion vs Dyce BC U15 - ADJFA U15's A League

A match with real ramifications at the top of the ADJFA A League takes place this weekend as Dyce BC travel to Spain Park to take on Banks O'Dee Albion.

Both sides have had great runs in the Scottish Cup. Banks O'Dee made it to the fifth round before being cruelly knocked out on penalties in a classic against Kilsyth Athletic, whilst Dyce have made it to the semi finals of the competition.

The last meeting between these two ended in a 1-1 draw so it will be interesting to see if anyone can come out on top this time.



EKFC Blue vs Hurlford BC U19 - Scottish Youth FA Cup - Quarter Final

Familiar opponents for both of these teams this weekend. These two contested the Scottish Cup Final last season and will clash for a place in this season's semis.

On that occasion it was EKFC who emerged victorious with a 2-1 win after extra time and it is expected that this match on Sunday will be equally close.

Hurlford will have their eyes set on revenge as well as a semi final place, whilst EKFC will be looking to complete consecutive cup triumphs.

 
 

 
Kerse United vs Braehead FC U14 - Scottish Youth FA Cup - Quarter Final
 
Kerse United have been tough opponents to play this season, however Braehead will travel to Little Kerse in Grangemouth full of confidence, setting up what should hopefully be a Scottish Cup classic.
 
The home side fought off a late comeback by Riverside CSC to set up this tie, whilst Braehead needed extra time to beat a stubborn Broxburn Athletic Colts.
 
Here's hoping we can get a few more goals in this contest, with a semi final place on offer.
