Forfar Athletic’s Development side ran out 7-2 winners over Cowdenbeath on Tuesday.

After a fairly lack lustre first half showing the young Loons burst into life and thanks to some great lead up work and clinical finishing, they eventually racked up an impressive win.

Frankie Devine gave the home side the lead in the 18th minute with a cracking drive from 15 yards out, but within 10 minutes the Central Park side had gone 2-1 up.

Cameron Muirhead netted their first and Calum Robertson the second, aided by a wicked deflection which saw the ball loop over Jason King into the net.

However three minutes before the break, the Loons were back on level terms.

Scott Page in the visitors’ goal did well to block a Cameron Clark strike but Jack Neave was on hand to hook the rebound home.

The second period was a different story with the homesters at their rampant best.

Kerr Hay rifled home number three on the night with a left foot shot from 12 yards out in the 58th minute, then just 60 seconds later Craig Smith added a fourth from close range.

Kerr netted number five in the 69th minute with a fierce low drive from 22 yards out, number six coming just two minutes later with Smith netting after running on to a superb through ball from Kerr.

Substitute Matthew Aitken rounded off the scoring in the 74th minute, Frankie Devine the architect on this occasion.

In the closing quarter of an hour the Athies could have taken their final tally into double figures.

Station Park is again the venue for SPFL development League action next Tuesday, February 9 Stenhousemuir the visitors on this occasion, the kick-off again at 8p.m.
