Newburgh stay in 3rd position in the McBookie.com North league thanks to Downfield’s win at Brechin Vics. The Vic’s were the only team that could leapfrog Newburgh in 3rd place if they had taken all the points in their home fixture against Downfield. With Blairgowrie being held to a goalless draw against Arbroath Vics Downfield made in roads on their lead at the top of the table reducing the lead to a single point.
Kennoway Star Hearts swapped places with Luncarty with their 3-1 win at Treaton Park. Luncarty also lost a place in the league to Thornton Hibs who trounced bottom of the table Forfar Albion 10-1 at Jubilee Park.
Biggest shock result of the day was at Denfield where Kirkcaldy YM put Scone Thistle to the sword winning 7-1. The young YM team seem to be making progress and may be a team to watch in the coming weeks.
Lochore Welfare continue to make progress under new manager Lee Dair winning by the odd goal on 7 against Lochee Harp at Central park.
East Craigie continued their good run of form winning away at Kirrie Thistle. East Craigie have not lost a match since September and have progressed to 4th in the table witting 1 point below Newburgh.
Next weeks Newburgh travel to Scone Thistle, home of the best steak pies in the league. The ‘Burgh will have to be wary of a side looking to bounce back after yesterdays poor result at Kirkcaldy YM.
