Vale of Leven 2 v LANARK 2 - 7th October at 2pm

Posted by bc57 on October 6, 2017 at 5:05 AM Comments comments (0)

An opportunity to keep our unbeaten run going, which we did with a 3rd draw on the bounce which will kill us, like last season.

Our longest away league trip but I like watching games at this venue.  Pitch was in great condition and my pie was good, served by a very nice lady..

Nothing between teams in first 30 mins then we lost 2 stupid goals in 3 minutes and went downhill from there for next 10. Cat had to make a couple of good saves during this period

Transfer News

Sorry to learn that our Player of the Year (IMO) Gareth Halford and the club have had a falling out. Worse still that he has signed for our nearest rivals Carluke. Clearly between the two parties but, will we get to hear what the problem was, if only the official version? Hopefully we will have some funds to invest as a consequence.

The young trialist with the hairdo that made a late appearance at St Ant's last week looked promising. Who is he, where has he been playing and will he retu...

LANARK 3 Gartcairn 3

Posted by bc57 on October 1, 2017 at 2:25 AM Comments comments (1)

2 points dropped against the league leaders but, ultimately we were happy to get the point with a scrambled equaliser by Peter O'Donnell in the 93rd minute which should have been ruled offside during the build up play.

2 weeks in a row we have equalised so late which is a trait to be happy with. However, we keep gifting team's goals.

They opened the scoring early on due to a daft handball by Stuart Annetts. We equalised through a well struck first half penalty by Shaun Gallagher ...

LANARK v Gartcairn - 2pm 30th September 2017

We welcome Gartcairn who are currently top of the league.

We sorted out the last team who visted us as league leaders and hope we can do so again today, particularly after events at the end of last season.

St Anthony's 2 LANARK 2

We went one up after only 44 seconds following a beautiful through ball from the returning Cameron Lawson which was well retrieved by Ronan Kearney who cut it back for       to slot away.

Unfortunately our defensive frailties were to the fore when we lost an equaliser 5 minutes later and then went further behind on 35 minutes.

Shaun Gallagher created an excellent chance for himself before half time, rounding the keeper and then inexplicably put it wide when he seeme...

Lanark Utd 2-1 Carluke Rovers

Posted by Yowe6 on September 16, 2017 at 1:55 PM Comments comments (2)

What a difference a week makes. Well deserved 2-1 victory today against our local rivals Carluke to hand them their first league defeat of the season.

We should have won by a lot more. Two excellent goals by Ronan Kearney, one a beautiful free kick into the top corner.

Wouldn't be Lanark without giving us a fright. Another sloppy goal conceded - in the 93rd minute. Managed to hold out for a further 3 minutes to ...
