Gerry never disappoints with his highlights.Thought the Glens were the better team on chances shown and on another day could have scored s few more.

Yes, to be fair on reflection from my notes for the match report and from Gerry's video, we actually didn't play too bad. We just didn't defend well, which is a concern. We created lots of chances and on another day some of them would be goals. On to East Kilbride Thistle on Monday night now.

Great advert for junior football, all for a fiver  
Yes, on reflection it was a good game, just disappointing to lose it. Defences weren't on top.

Your goalie  made one unbelievable  save , the ball looked  behind him

There were many great saves by both keepers, but that one was particularly outstanding.

It was an incredible stop, and it saved the referee's blushes as Aaron Black was miles offside.

That was a bit better from us tonight, the tempo was higher and we had the game well and truly won before half time. We were sloppy in the second half, though, but never really in danger of letting Thistle back into the game.

Blantyre's late winner at Larkhall means that they only need a draw on Wednesday night at East Kilbride to win the group, which they should get no problem. All we can do is go to Larkhall and try to win, while hoping there's a surprise result at The Showpark.

I can't see it, personally, but you never know...

Well that was a surprisingly pleasant twist of events tonight. For the second year in a row East Kilbride Thistle have ripped up the script and beaten the team who only needed a draw to win the group, and this time we are the ones to benefit.

To be honest, I never expected Thistle to get anything out of that match tonight, and when Blantyre went 1-0 up I had pretty much given up hope. But the final 15 minutes changed everything.

As for our game, we could have scored double figures if our finishing had been sharper, but I won't grumble with six. Dale Simeon with two goals and four assists was on top form tonight.

So now we have a tasty wee match in the next round away to Cambuslang Rangers.

That can wait, though, as we have three big matches ahead of it as we start our Premiership campaign. Home v Kilbirnie Ladeside, away v Kirkintilloch Rob Roy, and home v Largs Thistle.

Here we go.

Be interesting to see how Glens do in the Premier league?...thought they may have added a couple of other defenders?..how have the new additions looked?

Gavin Mackie has started very well, everybody is impressed by his performances so far, positive and energetic.

Gavin Lachlan has scored five goals in seven games (including pre-season) and appears to be settling in reasonably well.

History in the making indeed as this may well be the only time that Tommy graces a fitba park without a union meeting being in progress.

In fact,if we believe local lore,during his and his brother Eddie's times as stewards in the Hoover factory,the work force spent more time on the Somervell turf than some of the 'Lang players. :huh:

Of course Eddie went on to be the top man at SLDC so the boys,as they say,done good.:)

It was a cracking game, the sun was shining, lots of goals, a penalty, woodwork hit twice, some controversy (the absolutely blatant penalty not given), and The Glens winning made it just perfect.

We took till midway through the first half to settle and get on the ball and Kilbirnie were all over us before that without making Garry Whyte seriously work.

The opening goal was a thing of beauty, and Simeon really is in good form at the moment. We collapsed for five minutes after taking the lead with two individual mistakes by big Soaby, but the big man showed great character to recover and had a brilliant second half.

Simeon returned the favour to set up McKay for our equaliser, and the finish for the winner was top drawer from the wee man.

All in all a really good start for us. Feet firmly on the ground though. It's one game.
