Our u20s defeated last season's runners-up, Queen of the South, 5-1 at Palmerston in the SFA Youth Cup on Sunday. Our goals came from Craig Watson, Ryan Finnie, Andy Ryan, Craig Johnston and James Martin, while Ziggy Gordon put through his own goal for their counter. We now meet Aberdeen away in Round 4, in a repeat of last season's round 4 match, but we have still to agree on a date and venue as there is a rugby international at Pittodrie the same weekend.
