Double for Keith

Double for Keith

With a 2 – 0 win over Edinburgh City at Meadowbank we go top of the EoS league.  The same starting XI as last week took the field and we were ahead within a minute.  Dean Hoskins was brought down as he drove into the box and Keith McLeod slotted the ball home.  Edinburgh city came more into the game but the second came when a dinked Robbie Manson cross was headed into the top corner by Keith.

On the tight park at Meadowbank the game pretty much fizzled out for the remaining 70 minutes.  Wary of losing a lead last season we played cautiously and ‘keeper Chris Flockhart was only really called into action to take a couple of tricky crosses.  Keith missed a chance early in the second half and Omar came close in the last five minutes as they pushed forward.  Our man of the match was Dan Gerrard who looked in control at the back.

Team: Flockhart, Archibald, Hoskins (Kader 71), Gerrard, Fowlie (c),Sivewright, Henretty, McLeod, Malin (McAuley 64), King (O’Donnel 80), Manson Subs not used: McKibben, Trialist.

The trialist was Luke Cassidy who signed after the game, Luke has played for Heriot Watt University for the last few seasons and has looked very lively in training over the last few weeks.

The Juniors drew 2 – 2 with Livingston in a tosuy affair at Ainslie Park.  Joe Steele gave us the lead before they equalised from the spot after Joe handled.  In a melee just before half time Joe and one of the Livingston players was ordered off, along with our coach Jim Rae.  Gary Bannon did give us the lead before half time but Livingston equalised with 15 minutes to go.

Team: Paterek, Cruickshank, Steele, Sutherland, Hutchison, Cartwright (McLeod), Hair (Perry), K Young, Antoni (Scott), Moffat, Bannon   Subs not used: Reid, Boyes, Robertson

The Amateurs went out of the East of Scotland cup 4 – 2 to North Berwick.  First half goals from Clark Brown put us 2 – 1 ahead but they came back strongly in the second half.
