Wigtown fly the flag in Challenge Cup

On Saturday Wigtown and Bladnoch fly the flag for South football when they have Queen of the South as their visitors to Trammondford Park.

This Challenge Cup match could go close although the Senior team are expected to progress.

The Challenge Cup Round One fixture to be played on Friday night at St Marys Park, Kirkcudbright between St Cuthbert Wanderers and Annan Athletic would appear to be an exciting contest as the senior Club usually play their up and coming youngsters in South tournaments.

Saints are expected to match Annan with their firepower up front and this could well be a high scoring match that could go either way.

Crichton entertain Mid-Annandale in the same competition with another high scoring match in prospect but where home advantage could well be the key as to who goes through to the next round.

There are four South of Scotland League matches scheduled to be played with league leaders Edusport Academy taking on an in form Abbey Vale at Dumfries High School.

The visitors should however take the three points from this encounter although Vale will be on a high after taking the scalp of present Champions Wigtown last time out and are more than capable of continuing their winning run.

Dumfries YMCA play Heston Rovers in a local derby match in Dumfries with the visitors favourites to take the three points while the match at Gatehouse between Fleet Star and Newton Stewart could well be another close run match.

Creetown travel up to Moffatt to play Upper Annandale for a contest that could well end up with both teams sharing the points.
