The Shipyard’s third pre-season match took place at the Loch Leven Community Campus in Kinross where they faced an East Fife u-19 squad, re-inforced with first team players. With seven regular starts missing for this pre-season fixture Manager Whitehead had to dig deep into his player pool and give debuts to three new-comers. East Fife started the brighter team but Shipyard matched the early play and began to turn things in their favour. McCue slotted home a free kick from the edge of the box in the 24th minute to boost the Shipyard confidence and they more than matched their opponents for the duration of the game. With time rapidly running out, East Fife pressed hard for an equaliser and were rewarded for their efforts when they were awarded a penalty in the 93rd minute, duly dispatched by Sloane.
