    Hynd Blown Away 

    Sunday, May 05, 2013 4:30:07 PM

    Young Scott Hynd, at only 15 years and 260 days, made his first team debut last week against Albion Rovers, coming on for the last 15 minutes to be the youngest player to play for "The Wasps" in the Scottish Football League, and at Gayfield on Saturday, at 15 years and 267 days, came on in the final 10 minutes to score the winning goal and now become the youngest player to have scored in the Scottish Football League for "The Wasps", a dream come true for the youngster who is still sitting his standard grades at Dunfermline High School. The game was never a classic, with the high winds spoiling the spectacle but for Scott Hynd, it is a game he will never forget. Arbroath had to win the game to have any chance of clinching a play off spot, while Alloa Athletic had already clinched 2nd spot in the league, but manager Paul Hartley was still looking to win the game. In the first half "The Wasps" had the strong wind behing them and dominated the play, then in the second period the roles reversed with the home side having the strong wind advantage and pegged "The Wasps"back. However with time running out Eddie Ferns shot, come cross, came back of the far post and there was young Scott Hynd, who reacted first, to head the ball past Tony Bullock in the Arbroath goal.
