Five-star showing by Rovers

In a weekend when most of the region was under water, three youth league matches managed to survive.

Heston Rovers moved to within striking distance of the top of the Under-13 league thanks to a four-goal salvo from Taylor Brett and a strike from Jamie Dalzell at Annan Athletic.

An enthralling clash at Heathhall saw Heston Rovers open up the Under-17 title race as they edged out leaders Lochar Thistle in an 11-goal thriller.

Finally, in the Under-15s, Greystone Rovers heaped more misery on Annan Colts as they scored five unanswered goals.
