Whitehill Welfare 1, Civil Service Strollers 3

After the unexpected resignation of manager Rab Paget last weekend, Whitehill hosted the Premier League’s second-placed team with Grant Carnie in charge of team matters for the Rosewell side.

At a blustery Ferguson Park, Whitehill, with the wind advantage, were the first to show, forcing a corner in the first minute after some good work by Manson.

Whitehill continued to press forward and after a fine run and cross into the box by full-back Young, Civil had Cadger to think as he got down low to turn Bonthrone’s low shot round the post.
