East Region (302)
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.
Monifieth Athletic vs Broughty United U17
Pitfour FC have been impressive in the DDYFA Dave Pullar League and currently sit nine points clear at the top of the table. The two teams hoping to catch them, Monifieth Athletic and Broughty United, face off this weekend in one of the games of the region this weekend.
Monifieth Athletic know that a win this weekend is absolutely necessary if they hold any hopes of catching up to their Perthshire based rivals. They currently sit nine adrift but have the benefit of two games in hand. Wins in each of these games are vital in keeping the title race alive.
Broughty United, on the other hand, have more of a mountain to climb. Like their opponents, they also have a nine point gap to close, however while Monifieth have played two games less than leaders Pitfour, United have played two games more. A win this weekend will keep hopes alive.
These two last played each other back in October, with Monifieth taking the three points in a 6-3 victory at Monifieth High School, but this Sunday’s game is hard to call. Weather conditions could have a big impact at the usually blustery Riverview. The team that handles the conditions better will find themselves with a huge advantage.
Dundee Sporting Club vs Dundee West Reds U14
This match has the potential to have huge ramifications for the promotion race in the DDYFA Watson McInally League.
Dundee Sporting Club have been fantastic this season. They sit at the top of the league and are in prime position to take the league title come the end of the season. They’ve only lost one game this season, a surprising defeat to Carnoustie Panmure, and have a seven point lead at the top.
Dundee West Reds have had a decent season so far and can be proud of what they have achieved. They are currently sitting fourth in the table and are some distance behind Sporting Club. 11 points separate the two sides.
This match can have a major impact on the league if Dundee West Reds can produce the win they are more than capable of achieving, which would open the door for second placed Ferry Athletic to close the gap if they win their match against Broughty United Panthers.
The previous match between the two saw Sporting Club secure a narrow 2-1 win. Old Glamis Road is set for what is sure to be an interesting game.
Monifieth Athletic vs Dundee West Royals U13
The Cafe Royale League will see it’s first meeting of the top two this season when Monifieth Athletic and Dundee West Royals.
It’s been a fantastic season so far for the Royals, who remain undefeated in the league, with a 100% record. That form has put them clear at the top of the league table, eight points ahead of their nearest challengers.
Monifieth Athletic have also taken to 11-a-side football in impressive style. They have only lost one game so far this and hold one game in hand over their opponents this weekend. This is a game where you feel that Athletic need to win if they want to keep their title hopes alive.
It will be interesting how these sides play in their first meeting against each other, especially given that weather conditions are expected to have a major effect on how each side will approach the game.
Kirkcaldy Inter vs East End Boys United BC U14
Moving over to Fife now and we have another exciting top of the table clash as Kirkcaldy Inter and East End Boys United face off in the FFDL Division 1.
Inter have played well in this season and find themselves at the top of the table on merit. The Kirkcaldy side have only lost two games in the league all season and will be there or there about in the title race come the end of their campaign.
East End Boys United have picked up where they left off last season. Last season’s East Region Cup finalists are still unbeaten in the league this season, with five wins and one draw leaving them just four points off the top of the table.
Whilst East End still have ground to make up, some would argue that Inter really need the win more than their opponents this weekend. Kirkcaldy have played four games more than United have this season and a win would offer them some breathing space at the top.
For United though, a win would give them a massive boost to confidence, closing the gap to just one point with the amount of games in hand that they have.
Hill of Beath Hawthorn vs Kelty Hearts CC U17
The match this weekend between Hill of Beath Hawthorn and Kelty Hearts has the potential to be not just one of the most important in the East Region, but in the country this weekend.
Hill of Beath have been riding high at the top of the league and still remain undefeated this season. Having drawn only one game as will in the league they have racked up the points and sit on the summit on merit.
They do however have plenty of others keeping up the chase, making this one of the most unpredictable leagues in the country. Kelty Hearts sit in second place, just three points off the top having played a game more than Hawthorn.
A win for Kelty would go a long way in keeping their name in the title fight, whilst Hawthorn could solidify their position at the top and strike a major blow to one of their main rivals at the same time. Expect a really close contest as these two face off.
Benarty Astros win last weekend against AM Soccer allowed Glenrothes Strollers to increase their lead at the top of the AFYFC U19’s table. Astros’ 2-0 win over AM Soccer paved the way for Strollers to extend their lead to six points with a 4-1 win against Jeanfield Swifts.
