It was a miserable afternoon at Forrester High School for host side Edinburgh City U15s as Tynecastle FC Colts dominated the game from start to finish to win 6-1.

Daniel Joyce opened the scoring after three minutes, getting on to the end of a high bouncing ball before dragging the goalkeeper out wide and finishing from a tight angle.

He doubled his tally after being the first to react when a long-range volley from Cameron Young was not held by the goalie. The pick of the bunch came in the 28th minute as Gary Tickle unleashed a thunderbolt from 25 yards.

Tynecastle’s fourth came after some intense pressure at a corner forced the ball to break to the feet of Darren Hunter, who stabbed the ball home.

The fifth goal was a bizarre incident which saw the ball bundled in by the Edinburgh City defence as a corner swung in close to the far post.

Hunter got his brace in the second half from a well-taken free-kick to complete the scoring for the visitors.

City got a consolation in the 70th minute as Jason Whitehead lifted the ball over the goalie from just outside the box.

Oxgangs ruthless

AC Oxgangs U17s defeated Musselburgh Windsor 17s 2-0 in a game which came down to the home side making the most of their chances.

The deadlock was broken on 25 minutes when Josh Neill met a long ball before chipping the goalkeeper from 25 yards.

The game sprang into life once Musselburgh were reduced to ten men on the hour. Being a man down did not dissuade the visitors as they had an effort which struck the post and trundled along the line before being cleared by Paul Weir.

But Oxgangs killed off the tie when Jamie Carrick slotted the ball into the bottom corner.

Savvy Salvie get the win

The 3-0 scoreline was harsh on home side Gorebridge as they came undone by some savvy counter attacking football from Salvesen.

There wasn’t much between the two sides in the first half at all, as the game flowed from end to end with both teams managing to defend effectively, but substitutions made by the visitors proved to be pivotal as Salvesen began to show their quality.

Their efforts to hit Gorebridge on the break eventually paid off near the hour mark as James Williamson got on the end of a long ball before finishing from 18 yards.

Williamson grabbed a second after beating the offside trap to slot home with ease, and he completed his hat-trick to cap off the victory for Salvesen.
