YOUNGSTERS at Musselburgh Windsor and Dunbar United Colts have been celebrating cup success.

The team from the Honest Toun claimed glory in the Federation of Hearts Cup at the end of last month when they defeated Lochend FA 2-0 in the under-15s final.

Strikes from Liam Gillon and Alan Biezynski gave the county side the win at Tynecastle Stadium.

Ian Gillon, head coach, said: “We played there last year with the under-14s in the Willie Bauld final but we have got quite a changed team now.

“There are probably about eight or nine had not experienced it last year.

“There were four games – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – on that pitch and it was still be far the best they have played on in their lives ¬ unless they go onto bigger and better things.

“It was a really good experience.”

Elsewhere, there was success for the under-15s of Dunbar United Colts in the final of the John McConnell Cup.

They faced Dalkeith Thistle CFC in Dalkeith but home advantage did not prove decisive as the county side won 3-0.

Jay Miller and Emil Forrest found the net in the opening 30 minutes.

Any chance of a comeback was ended in the second half when Andrew Brydon finished well.

Scott Maxwell, secretary of the winning side, was delighted with the success.

He said: “The team we played against, Dalkeith Thistle, they had beaten us twice this year.

“We had not beaten them this year and the guys really performed the best we have ever played.

“We were delighted to go 2-0 up in the first half and then score a wee finisher in the second half.”

Maxwell revealed it had been a challenging couple of seasons for the club, who had struggled in the First Division last season.

Back in the Second Division, they are pushing for a top two finish.

He added: “We were in Blackpool for the Blackpool Cup at the start of May.

“It was a great bonding session for the lads and the parents.

“Since Blackpool, we have tweaked the team slightly in terms of positions and it has been really positive.”

Meanwhile, there was disappointment for Musselburgh Windsor in the final of the South East Region Cup.

The score with Bonnyrigg Rose was locked at 1-1 at the end of regulation time.

Unfortunately, it was the Midlothian under-16 side who emerged victorious, keeping their nerve from the penalty spot to win 4-3 in the shootout.

Finally, Musselburgh Young Stars lost out in the final of the League Cup in Dalkeith on Sunday.

The under-16s cup final saw Currie Star Whites emerge victorious 3-1.
