Andrew MacDonald reports on a disappointing weekend for our U20 players on loan at Junior clubs across Scotland.
U20 top goalscorer Alberto Vezza played the full game as his Carluke Rovers team drew 1-1 at home to Royal Albert. Vezza’s side remain mid-table in the Central District Second Division.
Ryan Lockie and Callum MacDonald both played in Camelon’s agonising 3-1 penalty shoot-out loss to Bathgate Thistle in a third-round cup tie
Declyn Cumming and Marc Innes, who were both returning from injury, played 90 minutes and were left dismayed as their Thorniewood United side conceded three set-piece goals to lose 3-2 away to league leaders Benburb. Thorniewood remain 14th in the Central First Division.
Elsewhere, Reg McLaren watched his Luncarty team win 5-1 at home to Arbroath Vics to continue their title challenge in the East Region North Division, while Luke Martin and Justin Watson were disappointed to see their Newmains United match cancelled at the 11th hour. Dillon Young’s Wishaw had no fixture and Oakley United’s Brooklyn Mair remains injured.
