On a warm Saturday afternoon at Meggetland high flying AC Oxgangs battled league rivals Leith Athletic under the grey Edinburgh skies for a place in the coveted Under 17s Division 1 League Cup semi finals.
 
The first real chance of the game fell to Leith when the North Edinburgh side were awarded a free kick in a perilous position just outside the Oxgangs box. A beautifully delivered ball in to the box was met by the head of an Athletic striker, sending the ball marginally wide.
 
Leith looked to press on and find the opening goal in the following minutes. Midfielder Callum Mein cut the Oxgangs defence open with a perfect pass to Ross Davis who was open in the box, only for keeper Connor Lunn to keep his cool and deny the Leith number 9 from point blank range.
 
The save appeared to tip the momentum over to the home side who began to dominate towards the end of the half. Energetic winger Kyle Brown's early chance was reminiscent of a young Thierry Henry, taking the ball down the wing, suddenly cutting inside then curling a shot towards the net, coming very close.
 
Oxgangs captain Spencer then took control of the game, confidently working the Leith keeper from as far out as 40 yards on numerous occasions. His hard work then earned him a goal at the end of the half. Leith struggled to deal with a corner and the ball dropped perfectly to Spencer at the back post who volleyed it home with no hesitation.
 
Half Time: AC Oxgangs 95 Under 17s 1-0 Leith Athletic Under 17s

Oxgangs started the second half as they ended the first, looking a class above their city rivals and making it 2-0 within minutes.
 
Leith tried desperately to win possession but the Oxgangs lads were passing the ball around with conviction, never looking like they would give the ball up and creating chances all over the park. Murray McCallum linked with mercurial midfielder Andrew Swinney who set up Jed Baxter in the box, who flicked the ball over the bar.
 
Connaire Lyons then skilfully broke through the defence out wide, picking out lurking striker Aman Habremariam who volleyed the ball in to the roof of the net to kill the game off at 3-0.
