Dundee Divisions Set For 3-Tier Shutdown

Clubs in the Dundee Saturday Morning Amateur Footballl League have entered a shutdown which will last at least two weeks after the city came under the Scottish Government 3-Tier restrictions rule.

Three points split five Premier Division teams. Riverside and Cairdy Thistle are unbeaten after three outings.

The Maidens remain in pole position as unbeaten Division 1 leaders. Craigie have netted 24 times in their three fixtures and head-up Division 2 with a superior goal difference.

Riverside Flowing Nicely In Saturday Morning Premier

Nine goals scored in two games have pushed Riverside CSC ahead of the Dundee Saturday Morning AFL Premier Division. Having crushed visitors Bank Street 5-1 on the opening day of their season, Riverside came away from their Saturday journey to Stobswell with a 4-2 win.

Just behind ( only one) on goal difference and maintaining their unbeaten start are Cairdy Thistle, who hosted a 4-2 victory against Occidental. Dryburgh Athletic are third following a 2-2 home draw against fourth placed Fintry. And spare a thought for bottom-markers and still pointless Dundee North End Amateurs after two outings. They started with a 4-0 home defeat to Dryburgh, and lost 6-2 at Charlie Accies on Saturday.

Dropping into Division 1 and The Maidens have full points after two games. No fewer than three clubs have a 6-point maximum in Division 2. Craigie have plus 15 goals, Dundee Thistle lie just behind (plus 10) and Sporting Club of Tayside ( plus 9 ) are very much in the frame.

Dundee Morning Clubs Ready For Match Action

Three divisions of Dundee Saturday Morning League clubs are poised for domestic fixtures in the next 24 hours. Cairdy Thistle already have points in the bag after defeating hosts Powrie FC 4-1 in the Premier Division last Saturday in a match that was brought forward a week.

Three games look as though they could provide goals aplenty: Fintry Athletic v DUSC, North End Amateurs v Dryburgh and Riverside v Bank Street.

In the First Division, I have been informed to watch out for The Beat v Lochee Celtic, The Maidens v Kirkton and Clark’s FC v Fife Thistle.

Tayside Fire Brigade v Riverside, Sporting Club v McAlpine AFC, Athletico Monifieth v Dundee Thistle and Craig FC v Dundee Athletic look good for competitive 90 minutes action in the Second Division.
