Junior football returns this weekend and Scott Thomson makes his predictions and names his star men for the Lothians teams this term.

• BO’NESS UNITED

Manager: Allan McGonigal

Key Signing: Jordan Cropley. The attacking midfielder, signed from Newtongrange Star, should provide some much-needed creativity in the centre of the park.

Key Departure : Ross Philp. A key player for the BUs in recent times, Philp has re-joined Kelty Hearts. Bo’ness will miss his drive in midfield.

Prediction: 3rd

• BONNYRIGG ROSE

Manager: Robbie Horn

Key Signing: Dean Brett. After a full pre-season under his belt, Brett will be a key player for Rose this season. Bonnyrigg are lucky to have him.

Key Departure: Ruaridh 
Donaldson. The youngster has joined League Two Stenhousemuir and leaves behind a big void at New Dundas Park.

Prediction: 1st

• BROXBURN ATHLETIC

Manager: Max Christie

Key Signing: Jack Beesley. The ex-Spartans stalwart will bring a wealth of experience to the middle of the park.

Key Departure: Darren Cole. The defender, formerly of Rangers and Livingston, has joined Derry City in Ireland.

Prediction: 5th

• LINLITHGOW ROSE

Manager: Mark Bradley

Key Signing: Roddy MacLennan. The little midfielder is one of the best on his day in the Juniors. He will add goals and assists to Rose.

Key Departure: Ross Gray. He was one of Rose’s better players in a forgettable campaign for the club last season.

Prediction: 2nd

• NEWTONGRANGE STAR

Manager: Stevie McLeish

Key Signing: Kieron Renton. The experienced goalkeeper is back at New Victoria Park and his vocal presence is needed to organise what was a ropey defence last term.

Key Departure: Lee Currie. The former Berwick Rangers man’s range of passing and free-kick ability will be Bonnyrigg’s gain.

Prediction: 12th

• PENICUIK ATHLETIC

Manager: Johnny Harvey

Key Signing: Lambert Kateleza. The striker joins from Premier League Arniston Rangers where he scored goals for fun.

Key Departure: Ryan Gay. A Penicuik stalwart, the midfielder’s influence will be difficult to replace.

Prediction: 6th
