Kelburne travelled to Peffermill to face Edinburgh University knowing that a victory would see them top the league for the first time this season.
Edinburgh University: 1
Men's 1's: 7
The injury hit squad were boosted by the additions of veteran Colin Bryce and youngster Michael Nicol to the squad which was victorious in Aberdeen the previous day.
The team started well and it was apparant that the students were looking to contain the free scoring burne attack. Kelburne were soon into their stride with Gordon McIntyre and Michael Christie proving to be influential in midfield. They took the lead early on when following some good skill from McIntyre on the wing, his cross found Johnny Christie at the near post to neatly deflect the ball into the goal. The second goal arrived quickly after a fine passing move. Bryce played a perfectly weighted pass down the line to find Ross McIntyre, his pin point cross found Michael Christie on the run and he was able to fire the ball high past the Uni goalkeeper.
Burne were able to add a third before half time when a well worked short corner allowed Willie Marshall to score with a direct strike.
Kelburne continued to dominate the second half and further goals arrived from Johnny and Michael Christie. Coach David Fowler began to roll the substitutes and there was also a first appearance in goal for Mark Robertson, who replaced Fulton for the final 15 minutes. Kelburne rounded off a good days work when New Zealander Steve Crossett netted his first for the club, and Lee Morton was able to further enhance his growing reputation by adding the 7th goal. The students were able to grab a consolation goal with a few minutes remaining.
Another 6 point weekend for the team which takes them to the top of the table for the first time this year. This Saturday they face Western at Bellahouston with a 13.30 pushback.
