Edinburgh United v Bo’ness Athletic (League)

Edinburgh South v Bo’ness Athletic (League)

It was a terrific start to the game for Bo’ness as MacDonald opened the scoring on 7 minutes with a superbly dispatched goal, cannoning in off the post.

Only a few minutes later McAteer clinically completed a well worked goal at the keeper’s near post on 15 mins.

A David Taylor powerful header on 21 minutes put Bo’ness three up and MacDonald completed his brace on 33 mins to give Bo’ness a huge lead going in at half time.

Into the second half and a confident Bo’ness team made a substitution on 50 minutes with Ally McInnes making his debut replacing McAteer.
Two further substitutions on 63 minutes saw Main , also making his debut for the club, replace MacDonald and Turnbull replaced Sharples.

Defender Shanks blasted home from the left hand side on 78 minutes to score the final goal for Bo’ness.

On 89 minutes , debutant Main, curled a wicked shot from the right, about 22 yards out, only to see his shot come crashing off the keeper’s far post. It wasn’t to be for young Main but both McInnes and Main already look to be valuable additions to the Bo’ness squad.
