Saints U20s lost 3-0 in their SFA Youth Cup Quarter Final match against Celtic U20s this afternoon at Lennoxtown. The hosts dominated the first half and they took the lead on 32 minutes when Ewan Henderson slipped the ball to Jack Aitchison and the striker cut inside holding off the Saints defence before slotting the ball past Ross Sinclair in the Saints goals.
Celtic then double their lead on the hour mark as Henderson’s cross into the box picked out Robbie Deas whose header went in off the post. Then 4 minutes later Kerr McInroy netted to seal Celtic’s place in the semi-final.
