ALL FOUR of the county's junior football teams were victorious as the East of Scotland Cup got under way on Saturday. 

Tranent Juniors kicked off the defence of their title with a win over Sauchie Juniors on Saturday, albeit it took them a penalty shoot-out to see off the visitors at Foresters Park. 

Saturday's opening round ties proved more straightforward for Musselburgh Athletic and Haddington Athletic, as Calvin Shand's Burgh won 6-0 away to St Andrews United, while the Hi Hi beat Kinnoull 6-0 at Millfield. 

And Dunbar United were also victorious, 2-0 winners at Arniston Rangers.
