Whitehill have heart for battle

Whitehill Welfare vs Hearts XI

Whitehill Welfare battled it out to a 0-0 draw in their pre-season friendly against a Hearts U19 side at Ferguson Park last Saturday.

Whitehill started the brighter of the two sides in what was to prove a physical game, and had the ball in the net in the first few minutes, only for it to be ruled offside.

The Hearts youngsters soon fought back, however, and had a penalty claim turned down before a Whitehill shot on goal was deflected over the bar.

The second half saw fewer chances by both sides and the game was to finish goal-less.

Whitehill might have been hoping for more on the back of their 3-0 away win over Clyde the previous week.
