Early goals defeat Shipyard.
The Shipyard never fully recovered from the concession of two highly avoidable early goals, a defensive mix up and a needless penalty, as they lost to Tynecastle in a Conference B league match at Recreation Park. Although Jordan Galloway pulled one back after half an hour neither side were able to add to their tally and the Shippy’s task was made all the harder after substitute Rab Kinnaird received two quickfire yellow cards to leave his team to play the closing stages of the match with only ten men. The afore mentioned Kinnaird returned from a couple of months out injured, however, several players still remain on the sidelines. To add to the selection headache club captain Sandy Strang missed this one out through suspension.
