Civil stroll through to second round of Football Nation Qualifying Cup

Civil strolled through to the next round of the Football Nation Qualifying Cup after seeing off Edinburgh University 5-0 in the fist round match.

Civil got off to a great start when Matthew Cunningham drilled a low shot into the bottom corner with just a few minutes on the clock.
This goal spurred Civil on and a perfectly placed cross from Kyle Fee found Joe Boyle at the back post, the youngster got his head to the ball but his effort went over the bar.

Jack Downie almost doubled Civil’s lead when he broke away from the defence but shot went just wide of the woodwork.
Cunningham got his second with twenty minutes gone, a ball was cleared out the Uni box but fell at the feet of Cunningham whose first time volley dipped under he bar and into the net.
Civil went in at half time in front and didn’t look to be under too much pressure.
Just after the interval Cunningham got his third when he got on the end of an Andy Mair cross, Cunningham headed home from close range.
James Hainey sealed the victory with minutes to go when he got on the end of a Cunningham pass and slotted the ball past the advancing keeper to make it 4-0.
Moments later Hainey made it 5-0  when he slipped in and slotted the ball around the keeper and into the bottom corner.
After the game manager, Alex Cunningham, said “I am delighted with the win.
“The boys played really well and I am glad we got back to winning ways.”
