Development squad beat Hearts

Our u20s development squad side defeated Hearts 1-0 in a competitive game at The SuperSeal Stadium at NDP on Tuesday night. After a defeat by Ross County and a draw at Partick Thistle, this was the first league win of the season.

Danny Redmond scored the only goal after just 5 minutes, finishing off a good move and assisted by Gramoz Kurtaj.

There were chances for both teams throughout, on a wet and murky night under the floodlights, with Kelly, Roy, Redmond and Breslin all having opportunities to increase our lead.

1-0 it remained though.

Accies: Thomson, J Boyd (Ferguson 85), McMann, Want (c), Breslin, Hughes, Kelly, McKirdy, Roy (Henry 86), Redmond, Kurtaj (Smith 59). subs unused O’Halloran, Quitongo, S Connelly, R Connelly

Referee: David Dickinson Att: 151

Full back Ben Reilly, who played every minute of every development league fixture last season, is now facing around 3 months out after breaking a bone in his foot at training last week. Ben underwent an operation on Tuesday and has our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Also on the u20s injured list are Alex Marshall, Ryan Tierney and Ross Cunningham.

Next up for the u20s is Dundee away next Tuesday, 13th September, 6pm at Links Park, Montrose.
