Oct 11: East Region Round-up

KELTY HEARTS had to come from behind to claim all three points against Musselburgh Athletic and move top of the table as new boy Sean Grady bagged a brace.

The visitors from East Lothian took the lead through Michael Hunter but the Fifers hit back with a superb strike from Craig O’Reilly.

Grady then took centre stage after the break as the former Bonnyrigg talisman, playing in his Superleague debut for Kelty, found the net twice to put Kelty in command.

And the last word was left to O’Reilly who also found the net for a second time with another outstanding strike as the home side secured a 4-1 win.

The victory was enough to move Tom Courts men back to the summit of the Superleague after Newtongrange, who were league leaders at the start of the day, were held 1-1 by local rivals Bonnyrigg.

Former Bo’ness man Steven Hislop put Bonnyrigg in front after 15 minutes at New Victoria Park and new boss David McGlynn would have been hoping his team could hold on to land him his first victory in a Midlothian derby.

But for Musselburgh striker Kris Renton came back to haunt his former gaffer but equalising on the hour mark and the rivals had to settle for a share of the points.

Linlithgow Rose moved up to third in the table after winning 3-0 at Ballingry Rovers courtesy of two goals from Kevin Kelbie and one from Tommy Coyne.

Meanwhile champions Bo’ness United slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Newtown Park against Hill of Beath and Penicuik Athletic continued their good start to life in the top flight with a 5-4 win against Armadale Thistle in what was  a cracker at Penicuik Park.

At the bottom end of the table Carnoustie Panmure pick up three crucial points with a 2-1 victory against Fauldhouse at Laing Park and Camelon won 3-2 against Lochee United at home as the Falkirk side hope to kickstart their campaign.

Elsewhere Sauchie and Broxburn Athletic shared four goals at Beechwood Park which keeps both teams in the bottom half of the table.
