PROLIFIC Beith Juniors striker Andy Reid is hoping to win the top honours in the game with Beith again after his recent return to the club.

The 32-year-old came off the bench to score the final goal in the 6-2 win away to Jeanfield Swifts in a fourth round tie last month.

Now they face Bonnyrigg Rose away on Saturday, although former Ayr United target man Reid misses out through work commitments.

Reid, who has 189 goals from 287 starts and eight substitute appearances, returned to Bellsdale Park in January after taking around 18 months out for work and family reasons. He joined the club in August 2007 and was Player of the Year in 2013 and 2015 and Young Player in 2008. He was also Top Goalscorer in 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2015.

He said: "It's great to be back. I called the manager Johnny Millar to say I would like to come back although I couldn't make it every week. It was great he allowed me to do that. I won the Premier Division in 2010 and the Scottish Junior Cup in 2016 and are challenging for the main honours this season. It's a tough tie on Saturday although part me of hopes it's off so I could play the next week.. We have good players like Ross McPherson and Keir Milliken and there's competition for places."

Added Reid: "We are in a challenging position in the league and at least we have played the likes of Auchinleck Talbot twice and have some winnable games remaining."

Meanwhile also in the Scottish Junior Cup on Saturday, Kilbirnie Ladeside host Bo'ness United, conquerors of Kilwinning Rangers and Irvine Meadow host another East Superleague team, Bon'ess United.
