Young Dons' Strength Tells In The End

This was an easy game for us as Hearts fielded a team, consisting of four trialsits. While we had our new signings Joe Harper and Dom Sullivan playing for us, and both obliged with a goal, Dom scoring from a good pass by Joe, and substitute Duncan Davidson providing the cross for Joe to head into the net, John McMaster opened the scoring for us, latching on to a faulty pass by a defender John rounded the keeper to slot the ball into the empty net, Billy Pirie cracked home our first goal after the interval giving the trialist keeper no chance from Walker McCall's headed pass, Walker scored our other goal after a mistake from the keeper. We lost a stupid goal right on the final whistle. All our players played their part with. Ward, Crawford (second half) Rougvie, Sullivan and McMaster a shade ahead of the rest.
