The SSFA National Trophy competition for local association representative teams has reached , almost, the semi final stage.
One quarter final tie at under 15 has still to be played but the line up for the Senior National Trophy semi final matches is now known.
In the first semi final Glasgow SFA , who beat Lanarkshire 3-1, take on Lothian SFA who were 2-1 winners against Aberdeenshire.
The other semi final will see Fife Schools FA who beat Aberdeen 3-1 away from home will play Forth Valley SFA who beat Dumfries 4-1 in their quarter final match.
Both ties are mouthwatering prospects. A good number of Scottish Schoolboy international players are spread through out the four teams. That could cause problems working around dates already in place for the international programme of preparation and international games but the games should certainly be well contested when they take place.
The under 15 National Trophy quarter final between Forth Valley SFA and Fife saw Forth Valley win 3-0 and they will play against the winners of Ayrshire and Aberdeen who play on 12th February.
North of Scotland beat Paisley and District SFA and will travel to play Dundee SFA who defeated Lanarkshire SFA 5-3 in their quarter final game.
Exciting games in prospect in both competitions.
Good luck to the players and the staff involved.
