Junior sides hoping to end seven week slumber

JUNIOR sides Bellshill Athletic and Thorniewood United are hoping to finally get back into action on Saturday - almost two months since they last played.

Bellshill travel to face Shotts Bon Accord in an Emirates Scottish Junior Cup third round tie while Thorniewood are at home to St Anthony's in a Central League First Division fixture, kick-offs 1.45pm.

Both games were originally planned for Saturday, November 27, but were postponed due to the weather for four successive weeks before junior football took a two-week break over the festive season.
