The first step on the road to Hampden was today, only two games survived the cold though. East Fife 3-0 Whitehill Welfare Inverurie Locos 1-2 Keith It was a reasonable performance today against, admitedley, poor opposition. A Johnny Mitchell hat trick on his return from injury was encouraging to see too. At the end we were guilty of at bit of show-boating, which was too much for some Whitehill players, one took a swipe at Brian Fairbairn for trying one too many stepovers and two of their defenders had to be seperated and looked like they wanted to kill each other. Must be rough in the East of Scotland League. On anther note, East Fife kept up their proud record of being one of only two league teams never to have lost a Scottish Cup tie to a non-league side. In our our 101 year history (even as a non-league side) we have never been knocked out the Cup by a non-league side. A pretty good acheivement when you consider the other team is Gretna, who have only been in Scottish football for 3 years and are yet to play a non-league side.
