CIVIL Service Strollers manager Gary Jardine high-fived his players after they moved into the top four.

The Christie Gillies Park side hammered neighbours Edinburgh University 5-0.

Kerr Allan, David Churchill, Ross Guthrie and Andrew Mair were all on target with Matthew Mackie also scoring an own goal.

Manager Jardine said: “To be where we are in the league at this time of year is testament to the hard work of everyone at the club.

“Edinburgh Uni are well organised with plenty good players but we showed today that we can open up teams.

"I'm delighted for the players and we just need to keep working hard over the next few weeks."

League leaders East Kilbride survived a scare at Victoria Park, where Vale of Leithen hit the post in the closing stages, to win 1-0.

Craig Malcolm’s first half header keeps Kilby eight points clear.

Manager Stuart Malcom said: “It was far from convincing today but we won and that’s what really matters.”

BSC Glasgow remain in second after Thomas Orr’s strike gave them a 1-0 win over Gala Fairydean Rovers.

Both teams had a player sent off – Reese Donaldson for Gala and Robbie McNab for BSC - and both missed penalties.

Murray Carstairs grabbed a double as Kelty Hearts thumped Gretna 4-0 at New Central Park.

Brian Ritchie was also on target for Barry Ferguson’s team along with a Jack Hunter own goal.

Aidan Ferris and Blair Lyons were the scorers as Stirling University beat bottom side Whitehill Welfare 2-0 at Forthbank.

And East Stirlingshire secured the points with a 3-1 win over Cumbernauld Colts.

Andy Rogers scored twice with Ross Allum also finding the net.
