Feb 20: Scottish Junior Football Tips

EVERY Saturday William Hill‘s Owen Scott and McBookie‘s Paul Petrie do battle in the junior football challenge and their back after a festive break.
The dynamic duo will be putting up trebles every weekend and Owen leads the way with winnings of £206.48 to Paul’s £45.69.
Last week it was all about Pollok with Paul backing them and Owen going in Bonnyrigg’s favour. In the end it was quite a shock as the West side thanked Rose fans for clearing snow off the pitch with a 5-0 blitz.
That gave Paul an 85-40 winner with his other two matches off so he’s closed the gap a bit.
For those who don’t know anything about junior football the level of the top clubs is equivalent or in some cases better than Scottish League 2 outfits and we can gauge that easier now with the champions of the three regions – North, East and West – qualifying to play in the William Hill Scottish Cup along with the Junior Cup winners.
The term “junior” has nothing to do with players’ ages and it often confuses people outside Scotland. Some of the top clubs such as Auchinleck, Hurlford, Irvine Meadow and Linlithgow pay bigger wages than most League 1 and League 2 teams and therefore attract players who could be plying their trade at a higher level.
McBookie list all games online and take bets on every junior match while William Hill only take bets in shops. Here are this weekend’s tips from Owen and Paul.

Owen writes: Last week turned out to be a disaster as Bonnyrigg were hammered by Pollok in the Scottish Junior Cup meaning there was no treble up for me.

This week I’m starting in the West and taking Petershill at 7-5 away to Irvine Meadow. Petershill lost last week in Ayrshire when Beith beat them in the Scottish Cup but will visit Irvine this week looking to put some distance between themselves and other clubs near the foot of the table.

Pollok at 7-5 is my next pick as they visit Rob Roy. Last week’s Scottish Junior Cup win will have increased confidence massively at the Glasgow club and I reckon they can win this week after Rob Roy lost heavily to Troon.

Shotts (10-11) at home to Ardrossan completes my treble. Not a lot between these sides but Shotts can use home advantage.

Paul writes: First up I am sticking with Kelty Hearts to beat Camelon at 8-13. With Carnoustie big outsiders to beat Auchinleck there is every chance the winner of this tie will be the only East region team left in the competition. Kelty have their eye on the big trophy this season and I expect it to be them left flying the flag.

Next I am taking a chance on Maud to beat Coupar Angus at 11-8. The North Region are near the bottom of the Super League and lost their manager last week so there shouldn’t be much confidence around the camp. However, they have installed Graham Coutts as their new boss and I am hopeful that can inspire the team to lifting their performance.

Finally, I am backing Dundonald to beat Haddington at 4-9. Bluebell are now the favourites for the title having won their last six straight matches. If they can win these sorts of home games against teams near the top of the table they look likely league winners.
