Hill of Beath Hawthorn went to Newburgh to play the local South Division side in their closing friendly and thumped home six goals wit only one in reply.

Lewis Elder hit a treble with other goals coming from Joe Kirby, Lee Reid and Jake Mitchell.

Meanwhile Dundonald were taking on Glenafton Athletic at Moorside and it was a really entertaining game.

Michael Ness, Calum Smith and Billy Rogerson hit the target for 'Bel in a thoroughly good work-out.

Crossgates Primrose found Dunfermline Athletic Reserves a tough ask at Humbug Park on Sunday and were 4-0 down at the break, but came back in the second period to score through Dale Allan, Barry Paterson and Darren Aitken in a 7-3 scoreline which saw young Pars striker Gabby McGill hit five.

Although their East Super League campaign is still ten days away Lochore Welfare took on West junior side Johnstone Burgh and won 3-2 at Crosshill.
