Sky’s the limit for Livi boys

West Lothian Courier - - Property - Livi Utd ....... 11 Kirk­caldy YM ........ 0

Liv­ingston United earned the praise of Sky Sports pre­sen­ter Jeff Stelling as their re­sound­ing 11-0 vic­tory over Kirk­caldy YM made it onto Gil­lette Soc­cer Satur­day.

The host gave the men from Sta­tion Park a spe­cial men­tion on the pro­gramme af­ter they notched dou­ble fig­ures to claim their sec­ond win of the sea­son and climb up to sev­enth in the South Di­vi­sion ta­ble in the process.

In­cred­i­bly, it was the sec­ond time this term that the team from Fife had lost 11-0 to a team from West Loth­ian af­ter they suf­fered a sim­i­lar loss to Pumpherston last month.

Robert Thom­son’s men got off to the per­fect start and never looked back as they found them­selves two goals up in­side five min­utes thanks to strikes from Dean McLean and Craig Rus­sell.

McLean would grab a first-half hat-trick while both Alex Cum­mings and Kieran McGurk found the net be­fore the break as Livi went in with a six-goal ad­van­tage.

McGurk and Kieran McKee made it eight for the hosts prior to the away side be­ing re­duced to 10 men, as if their day could get any worse.

Con­nor Cowan net­ted a ninth for United be­fore McGurk, who also missed a penalty, rounded off the scor­ing with a late brace.
