Hibs Under 20s defeat Selkirk 7-0 in friendly

Selkirk’s friendly with Hibernian Under 20s saw the Edinburgh side dominate in a 7-0 thrashing last night.

The Souters got the game off to an exciting start when Callum Peoples delivered the ball to Jonathon Watt who sent it just passed the goal.

With 27 minutes on the clock, Selkirk players began to tire allowing Hibs to break their defence, and Andrew Black sent a shot that collided with the post.

But Black soon made a chance pay off in the 35th minute with a fine 20 yard strike placing the score at 1-0.

Hibs again took advantage of the tired Selkirk side with David Paul taking control of a deflection and smashing it into the net.

The score was only 2-0 to Hibs at the half time whistle.

A substitution for Selkirk saw Gary Lickie come on, who previously played in the 2008 Homeless World Cup for Scotland.

Selkirk’s reserve goalkeeper Michael Fenton had his work cut out at the start of the second half saving an increasing amount of shots.

However, Hibs soon achieved their third goal, Bob Wilson heading the ball in from a corner kick by Ryan Baptie.

Wilson scored another, with fellow substitutes Jason Cummings (2) and Max Todd also on the scoresheet.

Full-time score ending at 7-0, with Hibs fans comparing it to the 7-0 drubbing of rivals Hearts 40 years ago.

Overlooking the game was Hibs manager Pat Fenlon who seemed very pleased with the result.
