Whitehill in seventh heaven


Whitehill Welfare 0, Edinburgh University 0

With Rab Paget back from his holidays, he made a couple of changes, with Aaron Sommerville making his first start in place of Scott Gormley, and Mikey Herd came in for Pat Bonthrone in midfield.

It proved to be a very frustrating night at Peffermill, as a dominant Whitehill drew a blank largely due to a host of missed chance and a home goalkeeper who had a blinder.

Whitehill had the best of a hard -fought first half, with Herd going closest with a well-driven shot pushed clear by Mark Tait in the University goal. Rab clearly fired the players up at half time as they set about trying to win the game with wave after wave of attack.

Patty Bonthrone replaced Wayne Sproule as Mikey Bruce headed a Herd cross over, and a Gareth Thom shot from all of 35 yards was tipped round the post by Tait.
