Eyemouth were on the receiving end when they travelled to Edinburgh to take on high-flying Hibernian in a league fixture on Saturday.

The outcome of the game at East Mains was never in doubt as Jamie Beaton bagged a hat-trick for the home side.

Fraser Mullen also scored two with Dean Horribine and Jay Doyle their other scorers.

Eyemouth also knew this was going to be a tough encounter, against a side setting the pace at the top of the league.

The fact that Hibs also used three players with first team experience, making their comeback from injury, made it all the more difficult.

At half-time Hibs led 3-0 and they continued to press ahead after the break netting another four to lead 7-0.

Eyemouth were then reduced to ten men when assistant manager Jonathon Brown was sent off, receiving a straight red card for a tackle.

James Wilson scored a consolation goal for United with a 25 yard free kick, but overall they were second best.

Eyemouth: Mutch, Greenlees, Windram, Spiers, Drummond, Faulkner, Simpson, Wilson, Bullen, Adamson, Brown.
