Five Games to Watch in the South East Region - 07/08 March 2020

Written by 

Hutchison Vale vs Lasswade Thistle U15

These two have had many incredible battles with each other over the past couple of seasons, and now the two clash once again for a place in the final of the South East Region Cup.

These two are the only undefeated teams in the SERYFA First Division and hold a place not just amongst the best teams in the region, but also the country.

Lasswade hold top spot for now, sitting six points ahead of Hutchie Vale having played two games more. The last encounter between these teams resulted in a 1-1 draw. Perhaps this is a sign of how even this match will be.

These two contested the final of this competition two seasons ago, with Hutchison Vale coming out on top on that occasion. This has all the making to be a classic cup match.

Salvesen Vikings vs Portobello CFA U14

Two of the top sides in the U14 SERYFA First Division face off in the South East Region semi final as Salvesen Vikings take on Portobello CFA.

Just three points separate the two at the top of the table, and it looks as though we can expect an equal game from two sides who have had fantastic campaigns so far this season.

The two have only met once so far in the league, that match resulting in a 1-1 draw. There will have to be a winner this weekend, and it’s difficult to determine who that winner will be.

However it does mean one thing. This is sure to be a thoroughly entertaining match.

Edinburgh City Whites vs Edinburgh City Blacks U17

Seeing two teams under the same banner competing in the semi final of a cup competition is not something you see everyday and is a testament to the work done at Edinburgh City as their Whites and Blacks clash for a place in the South East Region Cup Final.

Despite being in different divisions, with the Blacks in the First Divsion and the Whites in the Second, this game will be difficult to call.

The Whites have had a great season so far, reaching the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup and will come into this game off the back of an impressive comeback win over Salvesen to win the Victor Paris Bathrooms Cup.

For the Blacks, they are still in with a shot of catching up to Division 1 leaders Spartans, but their focus will be on this weekend and their quest to secure some silverware of their own.

Hutchison Vale vs Hillfield Swifts U16

It’s a top two clash in the SERYFA First Division as Hutchison Vale host Hillfield Swifts in a match that could decide the fate of the league title.

Hillfield Swifts have some ground to make up on the league leaders, having fallen 13 points behind Hutchie Vale with three games in hand, but you have to feel that in order to realistically challenge for the title, a win is needed this weekend.

That win will not be easy to come by. Hutchison Vale are having a fantastic season so far and the Scottish Cup semi-finalists remain undefeated in the league so far this season.

Vale won the previous encounter between the two, securing a 3-1 win. Hillfield Swifts will be looking to not only avenge that loss, but also pull themselves right back into the title race.

Bathgate Thistle White vs Blackburn United Black U15

Two teams competing at the top end of the WLAYFC A League clash for a place in the County Cup final as Bathgate Thistle White take on Blackburn United Black.

Blackburn go into the game as firm favourites, given their perfect record in the league with eight wins out of eight.

Bathgate are not that far behind, sitting five points adrift having played one game more than their opponents this weekend.

Form often goes out the window when it comes to cup football however, and it sets this one up for a fantastic cup semi.
