Stonehaven’s horror start to the season continued this weekend. Currently only being kept off the bottom of the league via goal difference, Stoney were defeated 4-1 by Colony Park in the Junior Cup 2nd round.
The fixture will be repeated, this time at Glenury Park, in the league this Saturday. A very important chance for Martyn Rollo’s side to turn things around.
Stonehaven Ladies and Montrose will do battle next Sunday with the SWFL North Two title on the line. Both clubs have pushed each other to the limit, only losing a game each thus far.
Following Stoney’s 5-2 victory over Buchan Youth this weekend, and Montrose’s 4-0 thrashing of Forfar Farmington’s development side, not only do both sides sit on 42 points, but they have an identical goal difference.
When the two sides face off, a draw, a result which neither team have been involved in thus far, would leave the league winner to be decided on goals scored.
Stoney have scored 111 to Montrose’s 109, so avoid defeat and they’ll take the title.
In the Amateur ranks, there were mixed result for the Mearns sides in the Premier Divison.
St Laurence are sixth following a 5-1 defeat to Woodside – who top the table.
Cowie Thistle however, beat RGU 6-1 to go a point behind Woodside, and they also hold a game in hand over the table toppers.
There was success in the League below for Bervie Caledonian. Caley’s 5-1 victory over Ellon Amateurs has them sitting 3rd. They’ll overtake 2nd place Rattrays XI if they win their game in hand, however, they sit four points behind Newburgh Thistle at the top of the table. Frazer Cerretti grabbed two, while David Salmond, Stuart Elliot and Jordan Hay got one each.
In the Division One East Ac Mill Inn defeated the side directly behind them. Inn, who sit 9th, thrashed 10th place JS XI 4-1 in an exciting display.
It was a weekend off for Stonehaven Athletic in Division Two North. Athletic still sit 2nd, four points from top spot holding FC Polska, with three games in hand.
