West Regional League Update (Male) - 29th October 2017

The lead in West 1 switched again at the weekend following Allan Glens 36 - 7 win away at Helensburgh - this gives them 7 wins from 7, with 7 bonus points.  Kilmarnock (who were on Shield duty) drop to second - their extra-time semi-final win against Paisley sets up a final on 2nd December against Carrick, who won away at Annan.

Garnock had no fixture at the weekend, so they drop to seven points behind Glens but with a game in hand - Garnock are 6 wins from 6 games, with four bonus points.  East Kilbride have perhaps dropped out of contention following a draw away at Greenock, leaving them 12 behind Glens and having played a game more.

Interestingly this weekend, Glens host Garnock, so at least one Clubs 100% win rate will be lost.

Carrick are currently 15 points behind Glens, but with two games in hand, are still in contention for the league.

At the foot of the table, Cambuslangs bonus point win against Oban means the two swap places, whilst Irvines single point loss against Stewartry moves them one more ahead of Helensburgh and now only one behind Oban.

West 2:
The top two both lost in West 2, Cumnock away at Clydebank and Cumbernauld at home to Strathaven.  Cumnocks lead is six points over Cumbernauld.  Strathendrick are in third following a 91 nil win against Millbrae - Endrick are 8 points behind Cumnock, but with a game in hand. Strathavens victory moves them up to fourth.

Paisleys game in the Shield meant both they and Lenzie were idle in the league, and that sees them drop below Endrick & Strathaven.  Paisley are 13 points behind Cumnock, but they do have three games in hand.

Birkmyre are now foot of the table following a points deduction for non-fulfillment, leaving them on 1 point and Millbrae on 3.  These two are getting separated from the rest, with third bottom Loch Lomond on 10 points.

This weekends fixtures could shake things up a bit as four of the top five play each other.

West 3:
There's no change in the top 7 positions in West 3, following wins for Glasgow Uni Medics & Bishopton. The only other league fixture saw Hyndland win at home against Cowal, which moves them up to 8th ahead of Mull and Moffat.

The Medics victory over Lochaber doubled up as the Bowl semi final, they will now play Wigtownshire in the final on 2nd December following their victory over Shawlands.

Uni Medics have a free weekend this week which gives Bishopton the chance to close the 10 point gap when they visit Shawlands.  Wigtownshire are 16 points behind the Uni Medics, but do have two games in hand, so not yet out of contention for the league.
