Result: Coldstream 0 Lothian Thistle/ Hutchison Vale 4
On a warm and sunny afternoon the early exchanges were even as the Blues took on Thistle for the second time in two weeks. A midfield stalemate prevailed and both keepers were unemployed. Thistle had the odd chance as did the Blues with Beesley heading narrowly over. Thistle were however awarded a penalty when Walters sliced a clearance and Hossack was booked for the foul in the box. The Thistle centre forward made no mistake from the spot. Coldstream were competing well and falling behind in such a fashion seemed deja vu all over again considering the last game against Leith Athletic. Beasley had a decent shot well taken by the visiting keeper and then had a fine cross cum shot flash narrowly past. In between Walters made a superb acrobatic save to keep the Blues in the game. The visitors half time pep talk seemed to work wonders and they greatly raised their game in the second period. Unfortunately Walters seemed to have a rush of blood and brought down a Thistle forward in the box but redeemed his error with a great save from the resulting spot kick. Coldstream were by no means out of it with some clever play but the final touch was lacking. Eventually they were caught out by a long ball for the visitors to make it two. They were by far the much sharper side now and deservedly went three up when the defence was split open again. Inglis brought a flying save out of the Thistle keeper but this was now against the run of play. Thistle were awarded their third penalty of the match when Robinson was adjudged to have fouled in the box. He was red carded and visitors duly completed the scoring from the spot.
The Blues had competed well in the first half but rather lost their way after the break and the powerful Thistle side ran out worthy winners. Another easy game next week with Lowland League side Spartans visiting in the Football Nations Cup. Strewth !
Coldstream: Walters, Wales, Logan, Inglis, Hossack, Hebdon, Robinson, Beesley, ( Johnston )Sutherland, Steele, ( Crawford ), Brown, ( Gray ), Bowling, Nisbet.

|William Hill Scottish cup Second Preliminary Round |
Result: Leith Athletic 1 Coldstream 0
The courageous Streamers went out of the Cup by the narrowest of margins on the artificial pitch of a sunlit Ainslie Park. They were by no means overawed by their powerful opponents and with a little luck the tie could have been taken back to Home Park for the replay their football deserved. they were strong at the back, inventive in midfield with some of the through passes to Sutherland very inviting. Crawford was missed for his scavenging skills in the box and this is probably why the Blues failed to score.
Simpson was the first to show for the Home Side when he flashed a shot just wide and Glynn fired a free kick over the bar. Play was even when Sutherland was put through on the keeper only to be adjudged offside much to the chagrin of the visiting fans. He was in action soon after with two shots blocked before Gordon turned his final effort away for a corner. Leith took the lead on the half hour mark when a shot from Keith was deflected away from the waiting hands of Walters for Hainey to tap in. Play surged from end to end and on the half time whistle Gordon just managed to tip over Sutherland's flashing free kick. The second half started with Hay hitting the post from a tight angle before Sutherland at the other end contributed clever work in the box before spinning and shooting just past. Coldstream were on top at this stage and only some weird and wonderful offside decisions thwarted them. Gordon saved again from Sutherland before Walters was called into action with Leith forcing a brace of corners ending with a stramash in the goalmouth. Fortunately Walters emerged with the ball in his hands. By this time the home crowd was becoming restive knowing that one goal might not be enough and Leith responded well with McKinlay playing a prominent part in his runs down the left wing. Streamers were now having to push men up to find that elusive equaliser and spaces were appearing in defence. Mackinlay went clean through but pulled his shot wide. Just near the final whistle Sutherland had a great chance after clever work in the box but his final shot skipped past the far post.
Coldstream had Hossack and Wales booked whilst Lowson, Glynn and McKinlay suffered the same fate for Leith.
Chairman Dave Lauder adjudged Gary Wales to be man of the Match for his tenacity in defence and his willingness to move forward at every opportunity.
Coldstream: Walters, Wales, Logan, Ingles, Hossack, Hebdon, Robinson, Beasley, Sutherland, Steele ( Gray ) Brown ( Johnston ) Subs: Tibbits, Nisbet, Bowling.
