Mid-Annandale continued to utilise Friday nights for their South of Scotland League matches. Last Friday night when they were beaten on their new 3G pitch by Crichton. The home side went down by the odd goal in a five goal thriller although going ahead in the ninth minute when a Matthew Copeland header was tucked into the net by Nathan Muir. Right on the stroke of the half time whistle Crichton levelled the match with a Ross Newlands header before Clarke Chambers put the visitors ahead in the sixty ninth minute. Crichton went further ahead with twelve minutes left to play with a shot from Darren Johnstone finding goal number three. Three minutes later David Proudlock gave away a penalty kick which was coveterd by Mids’ Muir for his and his sides second goal but it was all too late for the Lockerbie side who were yet again defeated by an odd goal.

Fleet Star went nap in their match against Nithsdale Wanderers at Gatehouse with striker Craig Rudd claiming a double. Ian Maxwell scored from a penalty to add to singles from Steven Hogg and Kevin Jamieson.

Wigtown and Bladnoch closed the gap at the top of the table with a four goal victory over Heston Rovers who usually run the Trammondford Park side close, but not on this occasion, particularly in the second half.

The Newton Stewart versus Edusport Academy match was postponed with Blairmount Park yet again being unplayable through the adverse weather conditions which now means that Wigtown are only two points behind the leaders Newton Stewart.

In the SFA Regional Challenge Cup second round the match between BSC Glasgow and Abbey Vale was switched to New Abbey. However, the city side was not disadvantaged because of this, and won by three goals to one while Upper Annandale went into round three following a single goal victory over Creetown at Moffat.
