Hutchison Vale booked their place in the 4th round of the Willie Bauld Memorial Trophy with a 2-1 win over rivals Tynecastle FC. It was the visitors who took the lead with only five minutes played through Cameron Russell, but Hutchison Vale battled back strongly in the second half with goals from Matthew Kinross and Ryan Shanley to seal victory.
Unlike in most rival matches, an early goal got the game off to a flyer. A ball played forwarded was accurate and found Russell of Tynecastle on the edge of the box. With no hesitation he then half-volleyed the ball across goal and past Hutchison keeper Ciaran Cairns.
With the early goal, it was possible that the game might have opened up. However, that wasn’t the case and both teams began to settle into their normal rhythm, with the majority of the play in the middle third of the mitch. In particular though, Lewis McCann and Rhys Campbell both looked dangerous for their sides on occassion.
It was McCann as well that almost took the game by the scruff of the neck for Hutchison Vale. The number nine launched an ambitious effort from around 30 yards towards goal and if not for Aiden Black’s great save, the scores would have been level.
Chances were few and far between in the first 35 minutes of football, but Tynecastle almost managed to doubled their lead before the whistle. However, their opportunity was thwarted by a combination of Cairns and the Hutchison Vale backline.

The second half began in a similar fashion to the first, with both teams patient for the time being as they both tried to carve out opportunities. However, with 45 minutes gone, it seemed as if Hutchison Vale found another gear.
Their first chance was from a long free-kick which was headed goalwards by Shanley. Unfortunately his superb effort struck the post and thankfully for the side in maroon, Black was able to claim the loose ball.
It was another set-piece that eventually got them the equaliser they deserved. A great corner from McCann found Kinross who headed home from around eight yards out. It was clear from the celebrations how much the goal meant to the team in yellow and back.
Eight minutes later, and they took the lead from another set-piece. This time the ball in wasn’t met on the first attempt, but Shanley lingered inside the box before receiving the ball from 12 yards out. The striker showed no nerves and took his time before half-volleying into the net. A composed finish from the striker, who was having a fantastic second-half having hit the woodwork earlier on two separate occasions.
Tynecastle battled back and tried to create opportunities, but they were being kept at bay by a strong Hutchison Vale defence. Even in the final five minutes with Hutchie’s back was to the wall, the side in maroon were unable to create a clear cut opportunity for themselves.
In the end it was an impressive second half performance which saw Hutchison Vale through this match and they’ll be delighted with a win over their biggest rivals.
Next week Hutchison Vale host Musselburgh Windsor in the Jewel Miners Trophy, while Tynecastle FC have a free week.

Ryan Shanley - A tough decision, but the striker had an excellent game. Always a threat from set-pieces and got the winning goal.
Cameron Russell - Scored the goal and was a constant influence for his side.
Magic Moment

Hutchison Vale's equaliser was the pick for this match. A great ball in and a well met header as well.
A difficult selection given the fact Hutchison Vale defended so well, but Turnbull's finish was well-taken given the distance and pressure on him.
