Feb 27: 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 £69.44 after Paul landed an 11-8 single last week thanks to Maud with all other games off.
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: Weather wiped out my selections last week so let’s hope I can beat the weather this weekend.

I’ll start with Junior Cup quarter-finalists Kilwinning at 10-11 away to Cumbernauld in the West of Scotland Cup. The Buffs are playing well and I reckon they will progress in this cup.
Pollok (8-13) are another side still in the Scottish Cup and still have a chance in the league as they play host to Irvine Meadow. Meadow need the points to try and stay up but I’m on Pollok for this.
To complete the treble I’m heading east and taking Newtongrange (6-5) away at Hill of Beath. This game can go either way but I’m on Star to get the points.

Paul writes: First up I am backing Pollok to beat Irvine Meadow at 8-13. Pollok are flying high at the top of the table and although they have played more games than their rivals they have started 2016 in terrific form and are right in the title mix.

Meadow are still struggling at the wrong end of the table and although they beat Pollok in the Cup earlier in the season this should be a straightforward home win.

Next I am backing Carnoustie to beat Hermes at 8-13. The Gowfers looked like they were going to be blowing away by Auchinleck in the Scottish Cup last weekend but showed great spirit to only lose by the odd goal. If they put in a similar performance on Saturday they should be too strong for the North Region side.

My final selection is Kinnoull at 8-15 to beat Scone. They started as one of the favourites for the league but have had a poor season. However, the last few weeks have been a lot more encouraging with four wins in their last six games. Another solid performance should see them pick up the three points
