Potts Cup sees Wigtown and Newton in action

With the season in South football drawing to a close the final league match will be played this Saturday when Creetown entertain neighbours Fleet Star at Castle Cary Park.

This game could well go close with a possibility of the points being shared between two sides who have enjoyed a better season than of recent years. On the same day the Potts Cup semi-finals are being played with Mid-Annandale playing hosts to league champions Wigtown and Bladnoch at Lockerbie.

Present form would suggest that the visitors will be favourites to progress to the final of this particular competition but Mids are expected to put up a strong challenge and the result could be close. Newton Stewart have Edusport Academy as their visitors to Blairmount Park for a semi-final tie that could go either way with much depending on what players are available for Edu.

On Monday night there are two Cree Lodge second round ties being played with Edusport Academy playing Upper Annandale in a re-arranged fixture with the match being played at Moffat. Edu will start as favourites to progress from this tie although Uppers are more than capable of causing a surprise result.

Nithsdale Wanderers and Mid-Annandale clash at Sanquhar in a re-run of their abandoned match from the previous week when the floodlights went out with the game goalless. This could well be another tight contest and with home advantage favouring the Sanquhar side then they could maybe just shade it.

Edusport Academy will now play Abbey Vale on Wednesday 20th May in the final of the Tweedie Cup at Sanquhar after both won their respective ties on Wednesday night. Both won convincingly with Edu recording a 7-1 victory over Newton Stewart at Hamilton while Vale went nap in their match against Fleet Star at New Abbey.

On Friday night the Final of the Challenge Cup takes place at Blairmount Park with Queen of the South playing Wigtown and Bladnoch.
