Division One side Rosyth visited Millfield for a friendly match last Saturday as both clubs wanted to keep their players match fit for challenges ahead. Having fielded a young side in a friendly win against Dalkeith Thistle a few days earlier, most of the first team squad featured against Rosyth. After a goalless first half Dylan Tait broke the deadlock with a fine left foot finish. Rosyth hit back with under 20s goalkeeper Ben Taylor beaten by two headers from crosses delivered from the right wing. The young goalkeeper, making his debut for the first team, had caught the eye with a couple of excellent first half saves. Haddington picked up the pace of the game in the final twenty minutes. Lucas McGarry restored parity with a neat finish and forwards Auriemma, McGarry and Tait all came close to scoring but another worthwhile exercise finished all square.
This Saturday the Hi Hi’s play their first competitive match against Vale of Leithen. The Innerleithen club were part of the East of Scotland League for many seasons before joining the inaugural Lowland League. They are currently propping up the Premier Division but former Hi Hi’s striker Joe Murray is now in charge and there were signs in their last match at Crossgates that there are significant improvements within the squad.
