Kirkcaldy’s YM’s youngsters found the experience of Linlithgow Rose just too much when they clashed in the East of Scotland Cup on Saturday.
The game turned out to be a complete mismatch, but the YM can console themselves with the fact they won’t come up against quality like the Prestonfield Park side every week.
Rose were 5-0 up at the break as they cruised to a 9-0 victory.
YM will be looking to shrug off the loss when they welcome Arbroath Vics this weekend.
Garry Thomson scored both goals as Thornton Hibs drew 2-2 with Lochee Harp in the first round of the East of Scotland Cup.
Thomson then hit the winning penalty in the shoot-out which the Hibs won 4-3.
This weekend East Craigie will visit Craig Gilbert’s men.
Dundonald knew that a win over Glenrothes would see them go top of the league.
Sadly the local men were unable to get on top, and went down 2-1.
Gilfillan netted for the Bluebell.
On Saturday they welcome Arniston Rangers.
