Bute YFC’s under-17s saw their winning start to the 2013-14 league season halted by a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Eastwood Juveniles on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Eastwood opened the scoring when their centre forward held the ball up, turned and saw his shot squirm through the defence and the keeper - and within ten minutes a rash tackle enabled the visitors to make it 2-0 from the penalty spot.

Matthew Leitch ignored Eastwood’s calls for offside to reduce the arrears with a simple finish, but despite plenty of late pressure from the hosts Eastwood held on to take full points.
