My nerves are still shredded Hibee. Our young lads were outstanding yesterday. 3-1 up and then lost a goal, a man and needed stunning save from Ross Jardine and the post to hold on! 

After a tough season last year, when he had to start again from scratch, Ian has got a good side together.

With both  having a core of effectively "full-timers" there is an unusual example of a midweek afternoon game today - as Edusport host Stirling Uni in an outstanding game at Lesser Hampden (3pm).

Was out watching our U20s at Saughton tonight beat Tynecastle 4-0 to make it 5 league  wins a row ! 3 goals in the last few minutes were harsh on the home side but a deserved win. 

With BSC losing ourselves and Spartans are both 3 points off the top with a game in hand.

Burntisland Shipyard 1-3 Spartans. Two late goals saw Spartans get the win. Much better performance from the Shipyard after their heavy defeat from Heriot Watt a couple of weeks ago. Surprised at Spartans are as high as they are in the league, didn't think they were that good tonight.

3 games in 6 days took its toll, but 3 victories moves us up to 2nd with a game in hand on BSC. Youth Cup tie at home to Kilmarnock next Sunday to look forward to.

Was down in Lockerbie on Friday night saw our U20s beat Mids 3-1. A 7th straight win in the league that took them top.

A few teams with games in hand behind also with only 3 dropped points shaping up to be a good season.

Dramatic night tonight. Was through at Broadwood where Whitehill were impressive in a 3-0 win away to 2nd placed Cumbernauld. Elsewhere Spartans and Heriot-Watt were beaten away to Bonnyton and Edusport so Whitehill only behind Spartans now on goal difference.

I went to BSC Glasgow v LTHV at Scotstoun last night (would have been at Cumbernauld watching the Welfare if I'd realised that's where the game was. Thought it was at Lasswade until I saw Broadwood on Twitter 2 minutes before kick off!)

Really good competitive 1-1 draw, both sides had chances to win.

I'll be back at Scotstoun for BSC v Whitehill in 2 weeks.
