Celtic B have taken the upper hand in their first competitive home opener in the Lowland League, as they go into the break 1-0 up against local side East Kilbride at the Penny Cars Stadium.
The young side, managed by Tommy McIntyre, started off on the wrong foot last week in an agonising 2-1 loss to Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic, however their fortunes seen to be turning in Airdrie this afternoon.
Owen Moffat, a youngster who has been training with the first-team of recent, has put the youth side ahead on the stroke of half-time to further his claim to becoming a key player in the academy – with the potential of making the first team.
