East Kilbride FC under seventeen's produced a first half blitz before withstanding a second half comeback to secure a fine three points at Glasgow Green on Sunday.
East Kilbride came flying out of the traps and led within sixty seconds, after Cammy McColl pounced on a defensive error to burst through a cooly slot a low finish past the home goalkeeper, 1-0 to East Kilbride.
The lead was doubled within five minutes, when top scorer Ryan White found space in the box before firing a low shot into the corner of the net, 2-0.
Despite being rattled by the early East Kilbride surge, Celtic hit back to make it 2-1 on twelve minutes after the away side could not clear following a free kick.
With East Kilbride controlling the game and playing some excellent football, the third goal for the visitors came on the half hour when White netted his second of the match, expertly hooking a volley high into the net after a wicked wide delivery from captain Fraser Robertson.
East Kilbride made in 4-1 five minutes before half-time, when another fine wide delivery from Robertson was diverted into his own net by a Celtic defender.
Half Time : The Celtic BC 1-4 East Kilbride 
The second half saw the home side given a lifeline on the hour when the referee spotted a Josh McDonald infringement, pointing to the spot and the spot kick was converted expertly to reduce the deficit, 4-2, game on. 
East Kilbride then found themselves facing a nervy end to the match, when a free-kick from thirty yards deceived Bradley Main and ended up in the net.
But, Graeme Mullin's men held firm to collect another fine three points in the Glasgow & District League.
