Top of the table Cramond FC left it very late to take all three points with the only goal of the game against a Redhall Star YFC side which dominated most of this intense match.
Redhall Star YFC got the game underway and the first piece of action came within three minutes when Cramond FC won the first corner of the match. A whipped in ball was cleared comfortably by the Redhall defence.
Redhall were given a real opportunity to open the scoring in the sixth minute when Robbie Campbell played a super through ball and Stuart Sutherland in the Cramond goal rushed out to clear the ball, but his clearance was miscued which left the ball heading for his goal. The Cramond defender was quickest to react to the situation and got back to clear the danger.
Cramond were awarded a free kick twenty yards out and the impressive Brodie McDiarmid stepped up but was left annoyed with himself as he saw his effort go high and wide. Redhall were starting to pass the ball more and seemed to be finding their rhythm and started to really threaten the Cramond goal.
Cramond were always looking to hit Redhall on the break and this was the case when they broke from midfield. Green came out his box, some twenty five yards out clearing the danger only as far as McDiarmid who tried to play the ball over the retreating Green but the ball went just right of the Redhall goal.
McDiarmid who seemed to cover every blade of grass for Cramond drove up the left hand side and put in a superb cross but Marc Hanna headed clear.
With no real clear cut chances so far for either team and both keepers not really being forced into any saves of note, this game was still up for grabs but at this stage Redhall looked the more likely to open the scoring.
The dying seconds of the half saw Redhall’s Jack Passmore play a delightful reverse pass into the path of Salvona who was very unfortunate to find him self on the wrong end of a very tight offside decision.

Cramond went on the offence straight from the restart.
It was Alfie Torbet who fancied his chances but his shot went harmlessly wide of Redhall’s goal.
Like the first half most of the play was in the midfield with McDiarmid for Cramond and Graham of Redhall having their own personal battle in the middle of the park.
A Redhall free kick saw Taylor play the ball towards the right hand corner flag where Hannah played in a good cross that was claimed by Sutherland.
Sutherland was called into action again when Samuel Donachie found himself through on goal with just the keeper to beat but Sutherland came out bravely to collect the ball.
Campbell looked like he took on Redhall's cause personally and created several good chances down the right hand side. A lovely run along the goal line saw him play a lovely cut back but Redhall had no takers.
Cramond won a corner and the ball was cleared only as far as the eighteen yard box which was picked up by the Cramond player who saw his shot go through a congested box and just wide.
Donachie found space in the Cramond box and unleashed a well driven shot. Unfortunately for him, the shot was aimed straight at Sutherland who held onto the shot with ease.
The decisive moment of the game came two minutes from time when Jon Hannah picked up the ball on the right hand side and drove into the box and unleashed an unstoppable shot into the far corner, across Green leaving him with no chance.
Redhall won a corner in the dying seconds which was scrambled away by the Cramond defence and the final whistle was blown, signalling the end of this tight fixture, much to their teams delight.
