Referee: Paul Hanlon Penicuik 0 - Hibs 4 Penicuik began their celebrations of the 125th anniversary of the formation of the original Penicuik ATHLETIC with a match against Hibs Legends at Penicuik Park on Friday night. The Penicuik side were managed by Junior Cup Final captain and League winning manager Willie Hume, ably assisted by Willie McGinley and Jimmy Wight, with Micky Weir looking after the Hibs side. In a match played in great spirit, amid the occasional personal 'battle', the Hibs men ran out winners by a margin of 4 goals to nil with Man of the match Kevin Harper notching two on his debut. It took until the 27th minute for Hibs to go in front as ex Scotland U21 and Falkirk star Andy Seaton turned a Harper cross into his own net.  That's the way it stayed until half time despite numerous replacements as the 'legs' gave way. In the second half Harper grabbed his first in the 52nd minute, before Harvey got the third in the 65th. Penicuiks best attempt came immediately after as Ryrie and Drummond combined to play in 'Striker' Lindsay but Bald saved well. Harper finished the scoring in the 72nd minute as he got the better of Foster to fire past Sandison and complete a good nights work. Harper commented after the match 'Just a big thank you to everyone that came down and watched the game, thoroughly enjoyed being back. Penicuik 'boss' Willie Hume said 'It was a good game, both team playing good football, disappointed to lose but the Hibs showed their experience. I thought big Foster and wee Ryrie had good games for us and Harper was outstanding for them. Overall very enjoyable, great to get the boys together and it will stand us in good stead for our next challenge against the Hearts in August'.
