Young Fairies suffer second successive defeat

Gala Fairydean Under 19s 0 Edinburgh City Under 19s 3

EOS QUALIFYING LEAGUE CUP

A DOUBLE from Mark McConnell ensured slick Edinburgh City overcame Gala Fairydean.

The visitors notched an early goal through Chris Kirkwood, but were unable to penetrate Gala’s defence during the first half as Arran Lynch made a series of good saves in The Dean’s goal.

Indeed, Danny Bolton could have put the young Fairies on level terms only to see his shot saved by Thomas Cordery when clean through.

Gala did well to contain their opponents in the second period, with Saul Schulz-Keith doing his best to grab an equaliser, only for man of the match McConnell to finish the match with two late goals.
