Hearts U20s ran out 3-2 winners over Dunfermline last night.

The Wee Jambos bagged all three points at New Central Park thanks to Rory Currie’s hat-trick, with Kelby Mason stopping a penalty at the other end.

More good news came in the form of Angus Beith continuing his comeback from injury, lasting the entire 90 minutes against the young Pars.

It took Currie only 12 minutes to open the scoring, slotting home from 18-yards after Russell McLean’s knock down.

Mason kept Hearts in front with a 32nd minute penalty save, denying Ciaran Lafferty from the spot.

Two minutes later Currie doubled the Wee Jambos’ lead, before Dunfermline’s David Hopkirk got on the end of a through ball to half the deficit before the half was out.

Four minutes into the restart Currie bagged his hat-trick to give Jon Daly’s side a commanding lead.

Dunfermline made Hearts sweat though, with Hopkirk dispatching second penalty of the game.

The Wee Jambos saw it through to the end however, with the win taking them up to 13th in the Development League table.

Next up for the young maroons is an away trip to Celtic on Monday 3rd October.
