EVERY Saturday William Hill’s Owen Scott and McBookie’s Paul Petrie will do battle in the junior football challenge.

The dynamic duo will be putting up trebles every weekend and Owen has the bragging rights having won £49 with Paul still to get off the mark.

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 Paul and Owen.

Paul writes: “First up I would like to say we are delighted to be the new sponsor of the leagues in the West Region to add to our sponsorship in the East and North. It is great to be the official sponsor of all three regions as we get behind right behind junior football.

“In the East Region I am backing Dundee North End to beat Coupar Angus at 19-20. It has been a great first season back in the juniors for Coupar Angus with many believing they would be the whipping boys of the league.

“And the game has an added edge with ex-North End manager Davie Martin making a return with Coupar. However, North End have finally got their promotion bid underway and should be too strong.

“In the North I am backing Stonehaven to beat Hall Russell at 8-13. Despite being top Stonehaven are still 12-1 for the title which I think might still be a little bit too big. Hall Russell have been the coupon buster on a number of occasions already this season so do have the potential to lift their game but so let’s hope they are on an off day.

“Finally, in the West Region I am going for Thorniewood to beat St Anthony’s at 8-15. Thorniewood have made a slow start to the campaign and after starting the season as favourites are now out to 8-1. However, there still seems to be some confidence they will get back on track and it should be this weekend with a straightforward three points.”

Paul’s treble

Owen writes: “This week on Saturday in the West there are only five matches with an odds-on favourite which shows you how tight the games are.

“I’m going to begin my treble with one of those odds-on sides and I’m taking Hurlford at 4-7 to get a win at home to Rob Roy and stop their visitors doing the treble after winning against Auchinleck and Irvine Meadow this season.

“Next I’m going against Mr Fixit’s side and I’m on Largs at 13-8 to win the top-of-the-table First Division clash against Clydebank. Both sides have started well but I believe Largs will make home advantage count.

“Something has to give with goal-hungry Bankies unbeaten and with a 100 per cent away record and Largs boasting a 100 per cent league record having played a game fewer than the visitors. Should be a cracking game on the Costa Clyde.

“Finally to complete my treble I’m moving North and taking Banks O’ Dee at 1-2 to turn the tables on Maud after losing to them last week but with points up for grabs this week I’m on a home win.”

      Willie, don’t listen to Owen – it’s a win for the Bankies tomorrow.

    looks a tough game Paul. It would be a good win for your boys down there as Largs have started the season well.

    Still a synthetic pitch down there?

      Willie, it’s a fairly new plastic pitch courtesy of the local EuroMillions winners.
      To be honest I don’t know much about Largs this season but we have won all our away games and have their ex-striker Nicky Little who has looked good.

      • John smith 2 years ago

        Mr f, They are in NE Aberdeenshire 15 miles from Peterhead, out in the sticks lol. They’re still in the junior cup and play Renfrew away on the 24th.

      craneguy, nice one with the treble – and Owen tipped Largs to beat Clydebank so I have to grudgingly praise him.
