Students slain by Whitehill

Edinburgh Uni v Whitehill Welfare

Edinburgh University 0, Whitehill Welfare e

A comfortable win at Peffermill on Saturday saw Whitehill progress to the second round of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

Uni keeper Mark Tait had been outstanding in the two previous meetings of these clubs but on this occasion he was beaten three times, though he did have some excellent stops.

Whitehill were ahead after only 12 minutes as Sproule shot home after a Manson cross was punched out by Tait.

As half time approached, dominant Whitehill had only the one goal to show for all their pressure, as Tait had saved from Andrew Kidd and McIntosh, Somerville had struck the bar, McIntosh had headed over, and Somerville had been denied a strong penalty claim as he was felled in the box.
