Talbot 2-2 Beith. Thanks to both sides for producing an exciting game,in sometimes atrocious conditions. And the Talbot ground crew for providing a pitch which looked in good condition,even at time up. Beith took an early lead after 3mns when Talbot midfielder Steven White, played a loose ball behind his defenders,Beith striker Thomas Collins reacted like a Hound on a Hare & showed good composure to finish from 6yds. Beith were reduced to 10 men when midfielder Paul Frize was involved in a tussle inside the centre circle. Talbot introduced Klark Thompson, & Gareth Armstrong,into the action & immediately they started to pose Beith some problems. Beith however went further in front when Willie Lyle showed good skill when he cushioned a header on his 6yd line, unfortunately for Willie,Beith’s Richard Burke was standing a yard behind him, Richard stepped forward & put the ball in the Talbot net. Deadliest striker in the game at the moment Talbots Graham Wilson got his side back into the game with 5mns to play, when he scored with a diving header from 6yds. Talbots best player Kyle Faulds got his side a share of the spoils when he blasted high into the Beith net from 20yds, in the last minute of the game. MOM, I couldn’t separate Beith’s John Sheridan, Kevin McDonald, & Tommy Martin, they were tremendous. Referee Mr Garry Doherty, stood no nonsense, got more correct than he got wrong. He & his assistants contributed to a fine afternoons entertainment.
