Youth stroll to Hawick victory in the SFA youth cup
HAWICK ROYAL ALBERT 2 ANNAN ATHLETIC 7
Annan Athletic proceeded to the thirds round of the Scottish Under 20 Youth Cup with a comfortable victory at Albert Park on Sunday afternoon. Manager Jim Chapman included several of his first team squad in the line up with Josh Todd grabbing a hat trick against the East of Scotland team.
Annan were never really pushed but the home team put up a stern resistance despite being under pressure for large spells in the match. Annan went ahead in the 16th minute when Josh Todd and Danny Graham combined to thread the ball into the path of Steven Logan who slipped the ball under the advancing keeper with a low 12 yard shot. Logan turned provider in the 19th minute releasing Todd who picked his spot. Gregor Anderson made it 3-0 on the half hour mark with a low shot into the corner of the net and Ryan Woolnough made it four nil in the 35th minute with a confident finish from the edge of the six yard box. Hawick pulled a goal back in the 39th minute when Chay Caldwell’s low shot from 12 yards beat the diving Gary Black. Ryan Woolnough then set up Josh Todd who restored Annan’s four goal advantage in the 41st minute. Hawick had the last say in the first half when Rowen Shaw scored the goal of the match with a 25 yard unstoppable shot.
Substitute Zac Cladwell got his name on the score sheet when he picked up a Steven Logan through ball in the 60th minute and Josh Todd concluded the scoring in the 70th minute.
