They think it’s all over, it nearly is

The curtain comes down on the East of Scotland footballing season this weekend, writes John Slorance.

Another term is about to finish and as far as some Border clubs are concerned this is good news as they have had more lows than highs in the months that have passed.

Vale of Leithen end their Premier Division campaign with an away clash with Gretna 2008. This will be the Innerleithen outfit’s third game of the week as they have already crossed swords with Heriot-Watt University on Monday (see report below), as well as Tynecastle on Wednesday.

In the First Division, Peebles Rovers are also scheduled for a last-gasp flurry of action. Firstly, they take on a Hawick Royal Albert side that has failed to record a single home win this season.

It is also a season in which Hawick have been hit with 19 red cards, as well as fielding more than 50 players.

And on Monday night, (7.30pm) Peebles face high-flying Eyemouth United. Both matches are to take place at Whitstone Park.

Selkirk, who have improved their league position of late in pulling off two wins, bid to get further points when lining up against Ormiston at Yarrow Park.

Gala Fairydean travel to face Coldstream at Home Park, while Kelso do battle with Easthouses Lily away from home.
