Saints Development League Thread

1-1 after 75 minutes. Saints down to 10 men, missed a penalty then scored with a pen and lost young lad with a bad injury. So plenty happening then.

Comrie felt aggrieved when his opponent felled him , with Ref. gesturing he got the ball and waved to play on.

Whatever swear word Comrie used, it didn't meet with the Ref.'s approval and he immediately brandished a red card.

Bradley Sinclair twisted away from one opponent and was met with another who contested the ball.

The two of them kicked the ball at the same time and Bradley immediately fell to the deck screaming in agony.

There was no blame attached to the Hibs player in the 50/50 challenge.

The Hibs Lady physio is to be applauded in assisting the Saints staff in the onfield treatment of the player and assisting in helping the player onto the stretcher.    

The ten men performed admirably and should have scored thru' Connor McLaren in the second half when the ball was passed to him inside the box and for some reason he failed to shoot and was dispossed by a barge in the back.

Saints were made to pay for it when Hibs broke up the left and swung a high cross to the unmarked lanky Oli Shaw who looped a header high past keeper McKenzie's flailing right hand.

Saints were giving as good as they got and neat passing was getting them into enemy territory, with Eoghan McCawl and Paul Simpson starring.

Saints were rightly awarded a penalty when a Hibs player used two hands to push a Saints player in the back as he was on the point of connecting with a crossball. Surprisingly the Hibs player was not booked.

McCawl's weak spot kick was easily saved as the keeper dived to his right.

Saints got a second spotkick when a perfectly flighted cross from the left to the back post was intercepted by the raised hand of a Hibs defender. Amazingly the Ref. AGAIN failed to produce his yellow card.

This time George Hunter took the kick sending the keeper one way and the ball the other, high into the net.

This was no more than their spirited display deserved. 

Hibs were in a lot of possession without looking particularly dangerous as the ten men refused to give in.

A draw was probably a fair result, but how Saints will rue the penalty miss.

Your last chance this season to watch the highly entertaining Saints u20's (in what has been a great season), when they meet Partick Thistle at McDiarmid on Tuesday 26th April with a 6pm kick off.

East Fife fans really rate Jason Kerr. Saying that they've rarely seen an 18 year old playing so consistently well for them. Certainly appears to have the physique as well.

Quite excited to see how he progresses. I suspect he might go out on loan again next year - possibly even to East Fife, who've obviously moved up a division - but I think playing regular first team football at a decent level is good for his development.

Some excellent football on show on a pitch that 'old MacDonald' would have been appalled at down on his farm! One goalmouth in particular looked as though his cows had been grazing on it. I noticed a really green piece in the middle of the park so what is stopping the rest of the pitch looking the same?
