It was a convincing display by Motherwell who swept aside Burntisland Shipyard to sail through to the next round of the youth cup.
Motherwell came into the game as favourites against a Shipyard side who had pulled off a cup shock to put out Livingston at the last stage of the competition.
The Steelmen however were determined not to let this happen and after just eight minutes it was 1-0 Motherwell.
James Scott with a magnificent run down the left, met the unlucky Shipyard defender Kyle Walls who could only turn into his own net.
That gave the Steelmen something to build on and they doubled their lead fourteen minutes later, when David Turnbull’s low effort was parried by Craig Richardson, leaving Alfredo Agyeman the simple task of slotting home the rebound.
Soon after this, it was Motherwell who scored again, this time it was Scott who converted after some creative brilliance slotted him in, brushing his shot into the right hand side of the goal.
Shortly before the half came to a close Dylan Falconer got onto the scoresheet, getting away from his man on the edge of the area and sending a low driven shot underneath the goalkeeper to make it four for the Steelmen.
