A young Pars team defeated Edusport Academy 3-1 in yesterday's friendly match played at Kelty's New Central Park. Most of the Dunfermline squad was made up of Fife Elite under 16s and 17s, plus first team squad members Callum Smith, Conner Duthie, Brandon Luke, Paul Allen and Stuart Morrison. Smith and Morrison were both eligible to play in this game despite being on development loans at Alloa and Edinburgh City.
It was Smith who opened the scoring (captured in photo below) before the opposition equalised when a flighted free kick evaded everyone and found its way into the net.
The second and third Pars goals came from Fife Elite players. Apologies for not knowing the name of the scorer of the second goal. The third goal was scored by Owen Andrew.
Several of the Fife Elite players looked promising and they will have gained good experience playing alongside the likes of Smith and Duthie. A mention too for Matthew Todd (number 8 in photo below), who looked good in midfield.
