All three local junior clubs are due to return to action this weekend after their three week shut down - weather permitting with yet more heavy rain forecast.

Camelon Juniors’ boss John Sludden, who could only field five fully fit players in the 1-1 draw at Fauldhouse before Christmas, will be hoping the break has been long enough to clear up the many injuries in his squad as they prepare to entertain Broxburn Athletic at Carmuirs on Saturday.

Victory here would see the Mariners continue to climb the East Region Superleague and also give them an added boost for the following week when they are at home to Dundee North End in the fourh round of the Scottish Junior Cup.

Falkirk Juniors head coach Karl Lejman will be hoping to get back on the East Premier League promotion trail with a victory over Oakley United at Grangemouth Stadium on Saturday.

Dunipace Juniors have had a longer break then most clubs due to postponements. Their last game was back in November when they went down 3-1 away from home to league leaders Rossvale.

Boss Alan Moffat, who recently appointed former Camelon Juniors’ midfielder Gareth Alexander, as his assistant, takes his team to face Johnstone Burgh at Keanie Park.

All games kick off at 1.45pm.
