Juniors still out of action

Once again junior football sides Bellshill Athletic and Thorniewood United can only watch and wait to see whether the weather will relent and allow them to get back into action this Saturday.

For the third week running Bellshill's Emirates Scottish Junior Cup third round tie at Shotts Bon Accord and United's Central League First Division home match with St Anthony's were called off last Saturday and both games have been rearranged for this Saturday with 1.45pm kick-offs.

But with more snow possibly on the way the clubs will have to wait and see whether they will be able to beat the weather.

Both clubs have been out of action since November 20 and should Saturday's games be off they won't be back playing again until Saturday, January 8, at the earliest with no fixtures scheduled over the Christmas and New Year weekends.
