Goals galore

Posted on Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

In an exciting game played in increasingly icy conditions Newtongrange Star beat us 4 – 3 this afternoon on the FieldTurf pitch.  With several players still on holiday our squad was augmented with youngsters Andrew Sinclair, Daniel Shields and Gary Hamilton….and veteran Mark Burns.   The Star were 2 – 0 up after 15 minutes and it stayed that way until half time.  Omar Kader scored in the first minute of the second half to pull one back and then Andrew Sinclair equalised in the 57th minute.  Star again went ahead within a minute before Omar again scored with 15 minutes remaining.  Star scored the winner with ten minutes to go.  It was a decent run out in far from ideal conditions…for players or supporters. Team: Flockhart (McGarrie), Burns (Hamilton), Sivewright, McKibben, Fowlie, McAuley, Hoskins, Kader, McLeod, Sinclair (Shields), Manson.

Tomorrow morning’s games at the Academy have been postponed, the forecast is for overnight temperatures in Edinburgh of -7, with it not getting above freezing all day.  The cafe/bar will be open from 11 tomorrow for the two derby games….firstly Celtic vs Rangers at 12.30 followed by Hibs vs Hearts at 3pm.
