Friday 27th September - Dalkeith Thistle v HOB U20s

Dalkeith Thistle 1 - 3 HOB U20s
Away league game tonight against Dalkeith Thistle hoping to continue our good form after last weeks win. Both teams started the game well and right away it was evident Dalkeith were going to be a hard team to break down. After 24 minutes Dalkeith got in behind us and swung in a cross which Dylan unfortunately put into his own net whilst trying to clear to put them 1-0 up. We kept going and on 44 minutes got our reward…

Friday 13th September - HOB U20s v East Fife

HOB U20s 2 - 2 East Fife
A home game tonight against Fife opponents East Fife. Again the lads started very well and settled into the game quickly. Against the run of play East Fife scored after 20 minutes to go 1-0 ahead. This spurred us on and before half time Harris netted to take us in 1-1 at half time. We came out for the second half and had to make a couple of forced changes but again we were on the front foot. Harris……

Friday 30th August - HOB U20s v Bonnyrigg Rose

First home league game tonight against Bonnyrigg Rose. After our slow start last week we were quickly into our stride and our excellent first half performance had us up 2-0 with both goals from Harris Kay. Had we taken our chances we could easily have been 4/5 up. Second half Bonnyrigg to their credit came back into the game and after a couple of individual errors they squared the game at 2-2. There were no further goals….

Friday 3rd May - Camelon v HOB U20s

Friday 3rd May
Tonight we completed our league campaign away to Camelon at Little Kerse. We started very quickly and put Camelon on the back foot by going 2-0 up inside 4 minutes, goals from Deano and Ross. Camelon responded by getting a goal back from the penalty spot after 20 minutes, this only spurred us on and after some great play Ross went on to complete his hat trick for us to lead 4-1 at half time. Second half started in the same fashion and after an hour we were 6-1 ahead with further goal for Deano and Ross. Camelon pulled a late goal back to complete the scoring at 6-2 to us. Very pleasing to involve Cammy and Joe from the U16's who both played the second half and impressed everyone. Tonight's win secured a fourth place finish in the league and I'm delighted with the lads contribution this season. We'll take a well earned break and look forward to next season.

Friday 29th March - HOB U20s v Bonnyton Thistle

Home to Bonnyton Thisle tonight in the Lowlands Conference A League game. The game started at a fast pace with both teams going for it. A lapse in concentration in defence cost us after 6 minutes and we found ourselves 1-0 down. Following this we pushed hard for an equaliser and had a few chances to counter but nothing would go in. On 70 minutes two dubious decisions denied us a penalty but awarded one for the opposition almost immediately resulted in us going 2-0 down. On 81 minutes Jack pulled one….

Wednesday 13th March - Kelty Hearts v HOB U20s

Tonight seen us travel to Central Park Kelty in the quarter final of the Development league Cup. In a great first half both teams were a credit to themselves in producing some excellent football. Kelty opened the scoring after 20 minutes only for Jack to equalise almost immediately, this looked to be the score at half time only for Kelty to score again in the 45th minute. Again after 46 minutes Kelty increased their lead and then continued …..

Friday 1st March - HOB U20s v Lothian Thistle HV

Friday 1st March 
Back at Keirs Park tonight for our 2nd Round Challenge Cup tie against Lothian Thistle HV. From the off we struggled to get into our normal stride and HV took advantage of some slack play from us and we went in 2-0 down at the interval. A bit of reorganisation at half time and we started the second half strongly. Midway through the half Ryan scored from a direct free kick and it was game on again. This though only seemed…..

Friday 22nd February 2019 - HOB U20s V Kelty Hearts U20s

A large crowd gathered to see our local derby at home against Kelty Hearts in our Lowlands Development league game. We started very well and after five minutes Jack scored to put us in front with a great lob over the Kelty keeper. Kelty responded by putting us under pressure and equalised after twenty minutes. This seemed to settle us and we had our best spell from then till half time with Jay heading home five minutes before half time to send us in 2-1 in front. The visitors came out strong……..

Friday 25th January 2019 - HOB U20s v Newtongrange Star

HOB U20s 6 - 0 Newtongrange Star
A home game tonight against Newtongrange Star in the first round of the Development Cup. After a one on one with the Newtongrange keeper in the first minute which we missed the game had a stuffy start from both teams with little chances created. Eventually we settled and Jack fired home from 20 yards to put us 1-0 up. This spurred us on and almost immediately Rory scored a fantastic second goal after great work by Dean. Following half time………

Friday 18th January - Heriot Watt Uni v HOB U20s

Friday 18th January
Away to Heriot Watt at the impressive Orium Centre tonight hoping to get a positive result following last weeks defeat at Dunipace. Again, both teams were evenly matched and the game swung from end to end. Not many chances for both teams in the first half with the best a header from Rory which narrowly past the post. The second half opened up with both teams tiring on the big pitch. After an hour….

Friday 11th January - Dunipace v HOB U20s

After our four week break an away trip to Dunipace was our first league fixture for 2019. Since our first league win of the season against Dunipace in September they have been on a decent run and we knew tonight was going to be a tough task. This is exactly as how the night turned out with both teams matching each other for long spells. Dunipace were first to score……..
