Andrew MacDonald takes a look at how our U20 players fared out on loan at Junior clubs across Scotland at the weekend.
Camelon’s Ryan Lockie put in a fine showing as his side defeated Carnoustie Panmure 4-3 at home in the East Region Super League. The U20 captain performed admirably in his favoured left-back position, as he got forward effectively and chipped in with an assist. Lockie has now assisted an impressive five goals for the Mariners this season. Ross Cameron was an unused substitute for this one. Camelon remain eighth in their league.
Luke Martin played 90 minutes as his new Thorniewood United team defeated Port Glasgow 1-0 away from home. The full-back was a presence in attack and defence, as he moved forward with the ball energetically and was excellent in the tackle.
Marc Innes provided reassurance in midfield for the final 20 minutes as the game ended with only 18 men on the pitch! Declyn Cumming was unavailable for this this fixture. Despite registering their first league win of the season, the victory doesn’t move Thorniewood off the bottom of the Central Region First Division.
Brooklyn Mair completed the full 90 minutes as his Rosyth side went down 6-2 to West Calder at Recreation Park. Mair was at right-back and has shown his versatility in recent weeks, as he’s also played left-back and centre midfield for Rosyth and our U20 team. The loss means the Rec lose ground in their top-four ambitions in the East Region South Division.
Elsewhere, Dillon Young watched on as Wishaw defeated Forth Wanderers 1-0 in the last 16 of the Scottish Junior Cup. Taylor Evans and Justin Watson are yet to make their debuts for Shotts Bon Accord, but their new side defeated Rossvale 1-0 in their absence. Reg McLaren and his Luncarty team weren’t in action at the weekend.
