MATCH REPORT

 

Sunday 5th May v Scotspurs at Holyrood Sports Centre

 

David Stewart; Ally McNaught, Calum Colquhoun (c) (Allan Mackenzie), Allan Lennox, Alan Galindo; Gary Duncan, David Blair (Stephen Mosley), Ross Dunbar, Andy Dick; Craig McKenna (Adam Walker), Scott Macrae

 

Perth based Scotspurs were next up for us after our trip to sunny Montrose and thankfully some of our regulars were back.

 

One of those that had been at Montrose, CC, declared himself fit after a hamstring pull and he deservedly led the team out to mark his 100th appearance (and no goals from open play).

 

David, after an excellent away day performance, was in goals; Ally and CC at full back with Wee Gee and Wee Lenny in central defence; Gary, Ross, Andy D and LHD were in the middle; Sebo and Craig, recovered from his ankle injuries, up front.

 

Scotspurs had four ex Ormond Saints in their ranks; Fernie, Cal, Davie Robb and Gav the Gaffer and the referee was Big Nigel the Geordie Partick Thistle centre half who is now qualified to officiate at games.

 

The game started slowly although we had the upper hand in the middle of the park without troubling Wee Fernie.

 

In our goal David had little to do and he was more or less a spectator for the first twenty minutes or so.

 

After dominating the first half we eventually took the lead just before half time when Ross scored from close in and that was the only goal at the break.

 

Wee Al, Stephen and Adam came on the interval and the second half followed a similar pattern to the first except we managed to take our chances.

 

Ross scored two more to complete his first hat trick for the Club and Gary, with a rare goal, Sebo and Andy D all got on the scoresheet as well.

 

David earned his second shut out which included a fine diving save to make the score 6-0.

 

CC came off at half time but went back for the last five minutes and pulled his hamstring again which more or less finishes his season. But he did get a bottle of vodka in The Langside afterwards to ease the pain !

 

The team as a whole played very well and Referee Nigel reckoned it was the best he’d seen us play after many years of playing against us for Partick.

 

A good day and a good wee session in The Langside to celebrate.
