Calderbraes Under 19s powered to an impressive 4-1 win away to Albion Rovers Under 19s on Saturday.

The home side came into the game on the back of a mixed start to the season after a 2-1 home defeat to Finnart one week previous. Calderbraes however were in a fine run of form heading into the clash, having won three of their last four games in the league.

The visitors stormed into an early 2-0 lead within the first 10 minutes. Craig Burton slotted home a penalty in the first minute before Ross Marchant doubled their advantage just three minutes later.

Rovers pulled one back just six minutes later, but Calderbraes held their advantage until the break.

The second period again started confidently for the visitors, who were awarded another penalty just eight minutes into the half. Burton again calmly stepped up to make it 3-1.

The scoring was rounded off just one minute later, with Lewis Meechan finding the net. Both Burton and Meechan will be delighted at their contributions having also scored in the big win v Motherwell CFC last weekend.

It was another positive result for Calderbraes, who jumped up to fourth in the table and sit just four points off top spot. Several sides below them have games in hand that may see them slip down the table temporarily, but they're in red-hot form with recent results and will be full of confidence heading into their next fixture.

For Albion Rovers - they slipped down to 10th in the table as their mixed start to the season continues. However, they're one of the sides who have games in hand over their rivals, and will fancy propping up the table once again in the coming weeks.

Next up for Calderbraes is Finnart at home on Sunday, whilst Rovers travel to Larkhall Thistle on the same day.
