The men's 1st team continued their quest for a 7th successive league title today when they welcomed Edinburgh University to Bellahouston. They were boosted by the return of Gareth Hall and Mark Ralph to the squad, while their was also a first call up for rising star Lee Morton who has been in fine scoring form for the 2's.
Coach Derek Forsyth made some tactical and personnel changes for the second half and this seemed to inspire the team as they were finding possession of the ball much easier to come by. The fourth goal duly arrived when fine work by Horsfield and Johnny Christie allowed the ever alert Michael Christie to keep his fine goalscoring form going. Burne were now in full control of the game and were awarded a short corner following good skills by Morton. Veteran set piece expert Mark Ralph was able to dispatch a low dragflick which seemed to deceive the Uni Goalkeeper. Iain Scholefield was almost able to get his name on the scoresheet but he was unable to get a stick on a Mark Ralph pass from a set piece.
