U16 County Cup - Quarter Final
Queensferry HS
Last season's Under 15 County Cup winners, Broxburn Athletic Colts, visited Queensferry in the last eight of the competition.

Shooting into the wind first half, the visitors had chances to take the lead but for some fine saves and blocks from the Ferry keeper and defenders.

Broxburn did find the net through Declan Kerr about 30 minutes in, but the referee ruled it to be offside.

The away side did finally go ahead a minute from the break. Some excellent close control and dribbling by Andy Drysdale on the by-line lead to him cutting the ball back and Marcus Millar firing home from close range.

Half Time: Queensferry Thistle 0-1 Broxburn Athletic Colts

With the strong wind now at their backs Broxburn doubled their lead within 15 seconds of the restart, a powerful strike from Jon-Paul Dickson, 25 yards out, finding the far top corner.

Broxburn proved too strong for their hard working opponents and were to add more goals from Dickson in 51 minutes, Millar 57 (pen), Dickson completing his hat-trick in 64, Ross Gorman in 67, a cracking 25 yard free-kick from Liam Gallagher in 69 minutes and Dickson wrapped up the scoring 2 minutes from full time with his fourth of the game.

Broxburn will play Linlithgow Rose in the semi final as they look to book their second successive appearance at Livingston FC's stadium.

Full Time: Queensferry Thistle 0-8 Broxburn Athletic Colts
