Sports columnist George Wall looks ahead to the big football action this weekend...

I am looking forward to the big Largs v Kilbirnie game this weekend. 
It is a 2pm kick-off at Barrfields and everybody should get along for what should be a cracker.
They are two of my ex clubs both run by hard working committees. 
I really enjoy my time at Kilbirnie before signing with Largs and only left there due to my stubbornness over £50 which I thought I should have been given over and above the offer made to sign me. 
The move to Largs though worked out well staying for 10 years. 
It also worked out well for a lot of other ex Kilbirnie players who were team mates of mine, Frank Morrison, Adam Russell, Alan Rodgers, Robert Burns, Barclay Feeney and more who all played there. 
I see this week's game being a tight affair but maybe a lot of goals. Both teams for me are strong in the forward positions. Largs with, Owen McGinty, Will Sewell, Scott Adam, Keir Milliken and Jack Haggerty all capable of scoring goals and on a seven game unbeaten run they must be confident. 
Kilbirnie have dangerous players in Jon Scullion, Jonny Gallacher, Alex McWatters, Dylan Henry and Brendan Sharpe all capable of turning a game. Both defences need to be on top form and I feel we could be in for a good game. 
One other player to look out for in the Kilbirnie team is Morton loanee Ross Taylor who has impressed me when I have watched him play. 
By all accounts Kilbirnie with their new management team in charge have turned the corner after a poor start to the season but are still not getting results. 
There could be a few fireworks on the touch line too as Shaun and Tommy the Kilbirnie management duo can get a little excited. Kilbirnie will also bring a great travelling support. 
Yes looking forward to this one.


* I see that Billy Gilmour was on the bench for Norwich on Saturday without getting any game time. Surely not good for Scotland with the World Cup qualifying game against Israel coming up. With Norwich stranded at the bottom of the Premier League with zero points it can’t be doing his confidence any good and we really need him at the top of his game. Great to see that the game is a sell out.
It would be great to get a result similar to the women’s team who ran riot at Hampden with a 7-1 win in their World Cup 2023 qualifier against Faroe Islands last week. The team currently have won both qualifying games played.
