Captain Jordan Leitch opened the scoring as Bute YFC’s under-15s extended their unbeaten run to four months with a 2-1 win away to St Cadoc’s BC on Saturday.

After a goalless first half Leitch drilled a shot into the net off the underside of the bar to put the islanders in front, before Scott Harvey burst through from midfield to double the lead.

That second goal came against the run of play, and the home side’s pressure finally paid off when they pulled one back with ten minutes left - but the Bute defence held firm to chalk up a seventh game in a row without defeat.

BYFC’s next game is away to North Kelvin United on February 27.
