Newtongrange Star had a comfortable 4-0 win away to Edinburgh University on Saturday, with goals coming from Chris King, Grant Meaney (two) and a Gary Cherrie penalty.

New signing Paul Tansey (pictured receiving treatment, above) was the subject of some rough treatment on his debut, and the students’ right-back received a red card in the second half for a wild challenge on him.

Star have a busy schedule over the next week, with visits to Heriot-Watt University (Riccarton Campus, Thursday at 7pm) and Vale of Leithen (Innerleithen, Saturday 2pm) before they welcome Spartans to New Victoria Park next Tuesday (July 31, 7.30pm).

Season tickets are now available to supporters, with a new two-tier pricing system this year.
