Although Glenafton had a day off with no fixture there were no off days for several of the clubs chasing promotion with Thorniewood, Renfrew and East Kilbride all adding three points to their tallies. Thorniewood remain in 2nd place after a fine 4-1 win away at Whitletts while Renfrew climb to third place following a 1-0 win at Winton Rovers, resulting in the Glens slipping to 4th place. East Kilbride’s 3-0 win at the Showpark over bottom placed Dalry leaves them level on 26 points level with 5th placed Ardrossan, having played two games less.
League leaders Kilsyth Rangers were on cup duty but remain on pole postion with a three point lead over Thorniewood and eight points ahead of Glenafton. Although Shotts Bon Accord currently lie in 11th place, just above the four relegation spots, the league table on this occasion does lie. A combination of postponed weather-affected fixtures and the Hannah Park club’s renowned cup pedigree has meant no league fixtures since they thrashed Winton Rovers 7-0 at Ardrossan back in November and with two-legged Scottish Junior Cup semi-finals looming over the next two week-ends, Shotts won’t be in league action for some time.
Once again in the most dynamic league in the West Region, where possibly a total seven clubs (half of the league) could be promoted / relegated at the season’s end, is shaping up for a thrilling run in, with plenty of twists and turns to come guaranteed.
Next Saturday the Glens host Beith in the West of Scotland Cup Quarter-Final while the stand-out fixtures in league have leaders Kilsyth travel to Whitletts and Thorniewood entertain Ardrossan.
Midweek fixtures kick-off on Wednesday 11th April with Glenafton welcoming back former assistant manager John Garroch and his Ardrossan side to Loch Park.
