The fifth round of the U13 Trans World Sport Scottish Youth FA Cup saw Jerviston travel to Bingham Park to take Edina Hibs, who were looking emulate the success of their 2001 team, who won the competition whilst at under thirteens the previous year. 
Jerviston came into the game with hopes of causing an upset, as perhaps Edina were favourites going into the match. Jerviston however, must have been feeling confident having only conceded seven goals in all competitions this season. 
These hopes were boosted when they grabbed a very early goal before the game had really settled, enabling them to play to their defensive strengths and contain Hibs’ neat passing game, and threaten with their own direct counter attacks, eventually running out 4-0 winners.
The first goal came inside two minutes, when almost straight from kick off, Jerviston were awarded a free kick on the half way line. Fraser McDonald lofted the ball towards the edge of the Edina area. Robbie Wilson, the Hib’s keeper came out to meet the free kick, and succeeded in palming it away, but the ball fell to Paul Reid, who finished calmly into the empty Hibs’ net, 1-0 to Jerviston.
To their credit, this didn’t seem to panic Hibs too much, and they had soon settled into a better rhythm, passing the ball well and keeping possession in the Jerviston half, with both Sol Kenny and Steven Shore showing good feet and distribution, while Sean Hogg was determined in winning the ball for his team. 
However, Edina struggled to get behind the Jerviston defence. Brandon Hunter provided their best chance, when he managed to squeeze between the Jerviston centre back's and chip the on rushing Jonathan Rowlich, only to see his shot fall agonisingly onto the roof of the net.
During Edina Hibs’ periods of having both territory and possession, Jerviston still looked dangerous on the break, with Scott Hamilton hitting the post after a good ball over the top from Nathan Todd, and it was on the break that their second goal came. 
Nicholas McNally played a good long pass to Todd, who flicked the ball behind the Hib’s defensive line for Reid to run on to. Collecting the ball on the edge of the Edina box, he fired a great shot into the top left.  
Reid almost replicated the feat and almost completed his hat trick a few minutes later from a free kick, but Robbie Wilson pulled off an excellent diving save to tip it wide.

The second half began in a similar pattern, with Hib’s having the better part of possession. 
Brandon McLaren and Hunter were combining well down the left for Edina, looking very dangerous. 
The first chance of the half came when Hunter won a free kick on the left hand edge of the Jerviston area, but Rowlich saved well from Liam Docherty’s free kick. 
By and large however, Jerviston’s defence continued to tackle well and kept their shape superbly, launching incisive counter attacks. 
One such led to a corner, when a scrambling Hib’s defence was opened up by direct running and passing from Ried and Todd, eventually managing to bundle Liam Milne’s cross out behind. Hamilton struck a dangerous in-swinging ball, too good for anyone to connect with. From the resulting scramble, the ball ended up at the feet of McDonald, who had just enough time and space to roll the ball into the bottom left.
This goal seemed to galvanise Jerviston, and having been without the ball for much of the second half, suddenly they were back in control, playing the game in the Edina half. 
Their well-deserved fourth goal came from the best move of the game, with Milne and Hamilton involved again. They exchanged a slick one-two to make room for Hamilton to cross, which he did beautifully, finding McNally in space on the edge of the six yard box, who struck a fierce shot against the post. The rebound fortunately came straight back to him, and he was able to finish second time around, putting the game beyond the reach of Edina.

Brandon Hunter - Edina Hib's most dangerous player, was always looking to try and create something for the team, right until the final whistle.
Paul Reid - scored two goals good in the first half, then carried on running and passing unselfishly in the second.
Magic Moment

Robbie Wilson's diving save to the top left corner from Paul Reid's free kick.
The fourth goal; the one-two and the cross were excellent, if McNally's first shot had gone in it would have been perfect, but even so it was still a great goal.
