It was the Fifers who were to get off to the best possible starts scoring what turned out to be the winner within two minutes. The goal came from a typical Ryan Williamson run, getting to the byeline to execute a cross that Jackson LONGRIDGE met with a powerful header that gave keeper Jack Hamilton little chance. 0-1

The win was enough to take Allan Johnston’s team to the top of the group on six points. It was a good performance from the Pars and really good to see the team come together as a force.
