On Saturday, Clydesdale Men’s 1st XI will hope to steer further away from a relegation play off place when they take on Western Wildcats 1s at Auchenhowie from 1.30pm.  The M1s are currently three points clear of 7th placed Dundee Wanderers in the Men’s National Division One table, and eight points behind this weekend’s opponents.  Clydesdale Western 1s will play before the M1s at noon against Wildcats Ladies 1st XI.  Despite last Saturday’s defeat, ‘Dale Western will hope to keep up their challenge to be league champions of Women’s National Division One.  The girls are in 2nd place, five points off top spot with five games to play.

In the rest of Saturday’s games, the M2s play the final game of the day at Titwood from 5.30pm against Uddingston 2s.  The M3s play their final league game of the season when they host Hillhead 4s from 1.00pm.  The M4s know a win against nearest league opponents Kelburne 5s will confirm them as winners of Men’s West District Division Three – the two sides face each other from noon at Glasgow Green.  The M5s play Titwood’s first game of the day when they welcome Oban 1s from 11.30am.  In the ladies fixtures, the L6s face Irvine 1s from 1.30pm at Hutchesons’ Grammar School in their bid to avoid relegation from Women’s West District Division Three.  The L2s, L3s and L5s have double headers this weekend.  The L2s play George Heriots FP 1s on Saturday, 2.30pm PB at home before visiting Edinburgh to play Waverley Inveresk Trinity 1s on Sunday, 1.30pm PB at Edinburgh Academy.  The L3s have two home games – on Saturday, they play Edinburgh University 3s from 2.30pm, and then at the same time the following day play Watsonians 2s.  The L5s have two away games against Uddingston 2s at Bothwell Castle Policies (3.00pm on Saturday) and Ferguslie 1s at Linwood (12.30pm on Sunday).

Best of luck to all of our teams this weekend!
