Lanark did more than enough to win this game however a catalogue of missed chances cost us dearly. Dunipace look an improved side and had a few chances as well before slotting home the winner with about 20 minutes to go. Referee disallowed a late Lanark goal for an infringement on the Dunipace keeper when in fact it was his own player who blocked him. Young keeper did well and we missed Ronan Kearney's pace however the team can't be faulted for effort.

League duty continues at 2pm with a home game at Moor Park. Hopefully Lanark can continue their recent good form and climb up the league.
Scottish Cup Day.
We kicked off as the underdogs according to the Turf Accountants who had us at 7/1 for a home win!
Buoyed by our landslide victory the week before Lanark took the game to our higher ranked opponents and gave as good as we got. Their keeper had the better saves to make although the best 2 chances fell to our opponents who shot wide from an excellent position and a chip hit the bar before Ronan Kearney put us 1 up after 40 minutes with a low drive from around 12 ya...Read Full Post »
I was not in attendance but felt that this scoreline is well worthy of being reported upon.
Believe Ronan scored 6.
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 periodRead Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »
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 ...Read Full Post »
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.
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...Read Full Post »
