Newmains 0 Lanark 3

Well deserved victory. Should have been by a good few more .

Newmains played the heaviest keeper I have ever seen but he played well, had some excellent saves and you can see he has been a keeper in his day.

Have to doff my cap to Newmains. They have taken some beatings this season but they kept their shape throughout the match and made it very difficult for us. Team spirit and effort clearly not an issue as they didn't let their heads go down.  

How nice to stand and watch a game in pleasant weather.  Summer football anyone?

We have drawn 7 games so far this season. Other than Yoker with 6, no other team in the West comes close. Crippled us.

Match report

Vale of Leven v Gartcairn


In the first of four vital league games Gartcairn made the long trip down to vale of levens mill burn park which was bathed in sunlight.


This was the vales last game of the season but the players were raring to go, from the start both teams tried to put their mark on it but Gartcairn took the lead early on thru a Heppy header which left the keeper stranded. Cairn were on top and tried to spread ball about on what looked like a luscious park but in reality was very bobbly.

On 25 Heppy scores Gartcairn second after a delightful Thomas kilmartin cushioned header into his path to volley home.

Halftime time 0-2


Second half wasn’t a great spectacle although contested by both sides.

Jal replaced Liam on the wing on 63 minutes and Boyle replaced kev Ross on 83 who limped off with a niggly injury.

Vale although competed in midfield didn’t have a direct shot on goal which made it a relatively easy game for the keeper.

Full time Vale of Leven 0-2 Gartcairn

Man of the match Hepburn


Summary , a fine three points in the race for the title, still in our own hands with three league games left, big game this weekend v Bellshill


Wednesday sees us at mtc park for league cup tie v vale of Clyde ok tbc
