Airdrie Utd U19s 0, Berwick Rangers U19s 5

Dean Carse scored a hat-trick as Berwick thumped Airdrie at the Excelsior Stadium to move off the bottom of the SFL U-19 Youth Division.

A Ryan Smith penalty and a Dylan Easton strike completed the rout for Rangers, who led 1-0 at half time against a team who are second in the 14-team league.

The victory on Wednesday night was only Berwick’s second in ten Youth Division games, but moves them above East Fife to second bottom on six points.

Airdrie’s defeat also hands the title to Queen’s Park.

Berwick Rangers U19s: C Malcolm, R Smith, A Ramsay, A Robertson, A Hay, T Aitchison, K Shields, S Todd, D Easton, D Carse.
