Four lo­cal sides march on in Tro­phy

West Lothian Courier - - Drivetime Extra -

Four West Loth­ian Sun­day Ama­teur Foot­ball League teams booked their spots in the last-32 of the Sun­day Tro­phy fol­low­ing vic­to­ries at the week­end – although two sides sneaked through by the nar­row­est of mar­gins. While Liv­ingston-based Har­vester eased to an 8-1 away win at Mary­hill Mi­lans, both Car­ron Val­ley and Liv­ingston CFC needed penalty shoot-outs to ad­vance fol­low­ing 2-2 draws.

Val­ley edged out fel­low West Loth­ian side Brox­burn Ath­letic, who play in the Loth­ian and Ed­in­burgh league, 4-3 from the spot and it was the same score as Livi CFC got the bet­ter of Car­luke This­tle. Craigshill This­tle also booked their place in the draw with a 2-1 home win over Bardykes Rovers.

LEAFA out­fit Bath­gate This­tle lost 3-1 against Palmer­ston Colts.

Else­where, there was a first league win of the sea­son for CVD, who edged out West Calder United 4-3 in a league fix­ture, although they re­main rooted to the foot of the ta­ble.

Livi North moved to within three points of un­beaten league lead­ers Craigh­sill thanks to a con­vinc­ing 6-2 win at home to Burn­side.

High­land Park jumped above vis­i­tors East Calder in the league ta­ble and into fifth place fol­low­ing a 3-1 home win.
