Andrew MacDonald looks at how our on-loan U20 players fared at the weekend…
Brooklyn Mair continued his recovery from injury as he played 90 minutes for his Oakley United side, who came from two goals down to draw with Harthill Royal 2-2. Luncarty’s Reg McLaren played the final 20 minutes as the East Region North Division leaders drew 0-0 away to East Craigie.
Defender Dillon Young completed a bizarre 45 minutes for his Wishaw side as they went down 4-3 away to Rossvale. The game saw three late goals and the Wishaw goalkeeper bagging a brace of penalties! Despite the loss, Wishaw are still mounting a title challenge in the Central District First Division.
It was disappointment for Justin Watson and Newmains United, being convincingly beaten by Lanark United away from home. Luke Martin was unavailable for this match. Newmains have some work to do in the league, sitting 12th in the Central District Second Division. The loss sets up a vital game against fellow strugglers Dunipace next Saturday.
Elsewhere, Alberto Vezza watched his Carluke Rovers lose 3-1 to St Anthony’s at home, while Ryan Lockie and Callum MacDonald’s Camelon, as well as Declyn Cumming and Marc Innes’ Thorniewood United games were called off due to adverse weather.
