Matchday 12 – PDM Buildbase Premier Division Review

The twelfth matchday of the PDM Buildbase Premier Division took place over the weekend and there was as usual a lot of goals, drama and action across the division.

We start at the Match of the Day at Newlandsfield where over 900 people were in attendance as home side Pollok took on visitors Darvel. Pollok went into the match level on points with the visitors knowing that a win would give them a 3 point cushion, with Darvel still having a game in hand, and in the 15th minute of the match Josh Weir headed them into the lead with a fine diving header in what proved to be the only goal of the match much to the delight of the home fans. Pollok moved to within two points of 3rd place Kilwinning with a game in hand, having collected 23 points from their 11 league games so far and ending a run of two games without a win, Darvel remain in 5th but their winless streak now stretches to 3 games having drawn their previous two WoSFL matches.

Leaders Auchinleck Talbot kept up their unbeaten start to the season at Beechwood as they put Cumbernauld United to the sword with a 3-0 win. Talbot had drawn with Beith in their last outing and were looking to get back to winning ways. The first half was goal-less but there wasn’t long to wait for the opener after the break when Dwayne Hyslop’s header was deemed to have crossed the line after 46 minutes to put Auchinleck in front. They doubled their lead in the 70th minute when a quickly taken free kick sent Aiden Wilson into the box, his low cross was blocked but the ball landed back at the feet of the full back who smashed a ferocious effort into the top corner for 2-0. Talbot sealed all three points when Dwayne Hyslop scored his second of the match seven minutes later, with a header that despite the best efforts of the Cumbernauld keeper McGee was deemed to again have crossed the line and it finished 3-0 to Auchinleck who stay a point ahead of Clydebank in second place.

Clydebank travelled to Bonnyton in good spirits after their late comeback last week and with half an hour on the clock Goal of the Month for July winner Nicky Little put the Bankies ahead when he got on the end of Lee Gallacher’s cutback to fire home, eight minutes later the Bankies moved further ahead when Hamish McKinlay dinked the ball over the  Bonnyton keeper to make it 2-0. Things didnt get much better in the second half for Bonnyton when a minute after the re-start McKinlay rolled the ball into the corner of the net to make it 3-0 Clydebank. Bonnyton pulled a goal back when Thomas Demspie fired into the top corner just after the hour mark, but the Bankies had the final say when with just under ten minutes to go Joe Slattery made it 4-1 to the visitors. Bonnyton remain rooted to the bottom of the table while Clydebank remain second.

Kilwinning Rangers went into their home match v Largs Thistle on the back of their first defeat of the season the previous week against Cumnock looking to get back to winning ways however this was dealt a blow in the 13th minute when Carlo Monti was red carded for denying a goalscoring opportunity, reducing the Buffs to ten men. They were then reduced to nine men in the 69th minute when Ross Smith was shown a straight red for serious foul play but despite the two man advantage Largs couldn’t capitalise and the Buffs battled out a 0-0 draw. Kilwinning stay in third with Pollok closing the gap and Largs move on to 8 points as they sit in 17th.

Beith faced the trip to Portland Park to face Troon on the back of a good 1-1 draw at Beechwood in their last WoSFL outing, while Troon had won 2 and drawn one of their last 3, the teams having scored 35 goals between them in their combined 22 matches played, conceding 31 so goals looked like they may be on the card, but it wasn’t to be as Troon hit the post, had efforts cleared off the line, and missed some good chances whilst Beith also had a couple of good chances, and did also have the ball in the net when Kenny McLean had stroked a cross into the bottom corner but the assistant had his flag up and it was ruled out for offside and it finished 0-0

Rob Roy had put together a run of four wins to move them up the table in recent weeks, but had failed to win in their last two coming into the match v Rossvale, who had won two and drawn one of their previous three matches but it was Rob Roy who came out on top at Guys Meadow despite going behind after 31 minutes when Conor Macdonald opened the scoring for the visitors but Luke Kelly levelled it up just before half time at 1-1. Rob Roy took the lead in the 59th minute when Cameron Henry netted their second and wrapped it up four minutes later when Ian Gold made it 3-1 to move the Roy up three places to tenth whilst Rossvale remain in 15th.

Blantyre Vics could have leapfrogged Rossvale into 15th with a win over Glenafton at the KG Stadium, although a win for Glenafton would have seen them overtake both Blantyre and Rossvale given the ‘Vale result but as it was both sides missed the chance to move up the table with a 1-1 draw. Grant Brennan gave the home side the lead just before half time, then the Vics thought they had doubled their lead in the 58th minute when they scored from a corner but the goal was chalked off for offside and Vics were then reduced to ten men when Sam MacKenzie was sent off for dissent. It looked like the ten man Vics might see the win out but with six minutes to go Leon Murphy scored an equaliser and the match finished all square.

Kilbirnie’s new management team of Thomas Molloy and Shaun Dillon got off to a flying start as they took charge of their first WoSFL match since moving from Greenock as their side welcomed Rutherglen Glencairn to Valefield, a win that sees the Blasties now unbeaten in 3 matches with 2 wins either side of a draw. They got off to a great start when Dylan Henry opened the scoring when he collected the ball at the edge of the six yard box, turned and rolled it past the Glencairn keeper and he doubled their lead 14 minutes later in the 36th minute as he cut inside from the right wing and from just inside the box 12 yards out fired a shot off the inside of the post and into the net. Glencairn got right back into the match when Harry Mitchell smashed home a screamer from 25 yards into the top corner after 43 minutes to make it 2-1 and that’s how the scoreline stayed throughout the second half. The win moves Kilbirnie onto 7 points for the season and to within a point of Largs and Glenafton in the positions directly above them whilst Glencairn stay in 14th with 11 points.

Matchday 11 Division Four Preview – Saturday 28th August 2021

In the PDM Buildbase Division Four leaders Kilsyth Athletic host Harthill Royal at the Kilsyth Sports Field looking to make it 3 wins in a row and  will be full of confidence having won 5 of their last 6 with 2 wins in a row, Harthill’s own form has been patchy as they have only won 2 of their last 6 and last time out lost 3-1 to Glenvale but they did beat Kilsyth 4-0 last time the sides faced each other at Gibbshill earlier in the season.

Second place Finnart went out of the Strathclyde Demolition Cup to Premier Division Rutherglen Glencairn last week at the Hamish B Allan Stadium losing out 5-0 but their league form has them looking for a 4th straight division four win and they face third place Glenvale who seem to have found form with only one defeat in their past six and unbeaten in their last four matches.

St Peters make the trip to Campbeltown to face Campbeltown Pupils at Kintyre Park and they will arrive there full of expectation given last weeks 8-2 win over BSC Glasgow but the Pupils will be looking to turn their own form around having only one one of their last six with 3 losses in a row. St Peters can go into third with a win dependant on results elsewhere

BSC will be hoping to put last weeks heavy defeat to St Peters behind them as they face Harmony Row, who drew with Glenvale last time out. BSC have lost four on the bounce and are currently rooted to the bottom of the league having played a game more than 2nd bottom Campbeltown but a win today could see them climb off the bottom

Matchday 12 Preview – Conference C – Saturday 28th August 2021

In the PDM Buildbase WoSFL Conference C we have an almost full fixture list with only Glasgow Perthshire V St. Roch’s and Petershill v East Kilbride falling foul of the pandemic.

Leaders Drumchapel United host Vale of Clyde, who are under new management following the appointment of Bellshill coach Colin Reilly as first team manager last Sunday and the tin pail will be hoping for a boost having taken 4 points from their last possible 18 and sitting bottom of the table. Drumchapel have only tasted defeat once this season and last week demolished St. Anthony’s 7-1 at Petershill Park to make it back to back wins and they will have their sights set on another three points this week.

Kilsyth Rangers revival continues as the Duncansfield Park side team look to make it three wins in a row as they host Ardrossan Winton Rovers knowing a win can take them within 2 points of their opponents having played a game less. Ardrossan themselves have only tasted defeat once in their last 6 matches and are unbeaten in their last four having taken 2 wins and 2 draws, the latest a 2-2 draw with Yoker, so it promises to be a tight affair.

Vale of Leven travel to Gasworks Park to face Larkhall Thistle looking to turn around a poor spell of form that has saw them pick up only one point from their last six matches whilst Larkhall have only 2 wins and a draw from their previous 6. A win for the visitors could lift them out of the bottom three, and Larkhall could climb as high as eighth with all three points.

McKenna Park is the venue as Saint Anthony’s look to bounce back from the aforementioned defeat to Drumchapel as they host Lanark United. The Yowes haven’t tasted victory since their opening day win against Larkhall and will be desperate to turn their form around and start climbing the table. The Ants could go level on points with Ardrossan with a win depending on results and will be looking to get back to the kind of form that saw them win 3 of their last 5 matches.

Yoker face second placed Neilston at Holm Park today and the home side have slowly started to turn their form around having picked up all of their 5 points this season in their last 3 matches having lost 6 on the bounce before that but they face a Neilston team who got back to winning ways against Vale of Clyde last time out and with the two sides below them not playing its a chance for the Farmer’s boys to open up a 5 point gap between them and St Roch’s in third place

Matchday 12 Preview – Conference B – Saturday 28th August 2021

Last week saw only one PDM Buildbase WoSFL Conference B match last week where Port Glasgow came back from a goal down to beat Kello 3-1 but this week we have an almost full card with only the Gartcairn v Cambuslang and Newmains v Dalry matches so far falling foul of the pandemic.

Looking to halt a 5 game losing streak are Carluke Rovers as they face Greenock at the John Cumming Stadium with both sides struggling for consistent form in the league so far. Carluke have only won twice this season, taking only 3 points from their last 18 on offer and Greenock, fresh from losing their management team to Kilbirnie, have 2 wins in their last 6, taking 7 points from the last 18 possible. A win for Carluke could take them above Kello and into 11th, whilst a Greenock win could lift them as high as 6th

The last unbeaten side in Conference B, St Cadoc’s make the trip to Kirkconnell to face Kello and with leaders Cambuslang’s match v Gartcairn postponed the Saint’s can take full advantage with a win and end the night on top of the pile. Kello haven’t tasted league victory since the 28th of July when they beat Newmains 4-1 at Nithsdale and they will need to be on that kind of form to hope to take anything against a side who are on a 5 game winning streak. A win for Kello would move them on to 12 points from their 11 opening games and could see them go level on points with Glasgow United in the position above them.

Ardeer Thistle have been the surprise package in Conference B this season, and they can go level on points with Cambuslang with a win away to Renfrew at New Western Park today. Having only tasted defeat once this season (4-1 at home to Cambuslang) they will be looking to keep up the pressure at the top. Renfrew will be looking for all 3 points themselves having been unbeaten in 4 of their last 6 with a 3-1 home win v Greenock on their last WoSFL MD, and a win today would take them level on points with fourth placed Port Glasgow, who are the idle team this week

Royal Albert still only have a MD2 point v Newmains to show for their efforts so far this season but they will be hoping that changes today as they welcome mid-table Ashfield to Tileworks Park. Having conceded at least 3 goals in each of their past 6 games the Albert have to be on their guard against an Ashfield side who have scored 31 goals in their 9 games so far, a win for the ‘Field would see them make it three wins in a row and would see them join Gartcairn on 18 points.

Thorniewood are unbeaten in 4 in all competitions following last weeks 4-2 pen win over Dundee Violet in the Junior cup, and have won their past 3 WoSFL matches scoring 12 goals conceding 4, Glasgow United are unbeaten in their last 4 WoSFL matches with 2 draws and 2 wins and it promises to be a close one at Robertson Park. With Gartcairn and Port Glasgow not playing a Thorniewood win would lift them to 4th.

Matchday 12 Conference A Preview – Saturday 28th August 2021

There was only a solitary PDM Buildbase Conference A last matchday as Maryhill won 3-2 away too Girvan, leapfrogging them in the table as most of the other clubs took part in the Junior Cup, This week we were down for a full card but due to the ongoing pandemic a couple of games have fallen to isolation (Bellshill v Arthurlie and Lesmahagow v Girvan), whereas Muirkirk’s match v Saltcoats has been forfeited with Muirkirk given a default 3-0 victory.

Craigmark Burntonians can go level on points with leaders Arthurlie when they host Maybole at Station Park and confidence must be high at the Mark, having won 5 of their last 6 matches and sitting in third place with 22 points from their opening 10 fixtures. Maybole themselves have picked up a decent run of form in the league and are unbeaten in four. Both teams took part in the Junior cup last week and Craigmark scored 7 in a 7-1 win away to Lugar, Maybole for their part, lost seven in a 7-0 defeat at Newlandsfield to Pollok. A win for Maybole can put them level with 6th place Bellshill with the Rockburn Park side not playing this week.

Johnstone Burgh got back to winning ways on their last West of Scotland matchday having bounced back from two straight defeats with a 2-0 win over Glasgow University at Keanie Park and followed that up with a 4-2 win in the Junior Cup last week, The Burgh have been steadily climbing the Conference A table having put together 4 wins in their last 6 matches to occupy 7th but visitors Forth have an identical record of 5 wins 1 draw and 3 defeats from their first 9 matches also winning four of their last 6 but have taken 13 from the 18 on offer, however the Burgh have a slightly better goal difference. A win for either side would see them leapfrog Bellshill.

Lugar managed to score 4 goals in their last Rosebank outing but also conceded seven to keep their dismal run of form in place, failing to have taken a point since their opening day win over Saltcoats and it could be a long day as they host second place Shotts Bon Accord who know a win will put them top of the conference with Arthurlie not playing. Shotts have been in good form this season winning eight and losing only two of their ten games so far winning five of their last 6, scoring 21 goals in those games and only conceding seven, six of the goals scored coming in their 6-0 win at Forth in their last WoSFL outing.

Maryhill will be looking to build on their run of 2 wins in their last 3 as they host bottom placed Irvine Victoria at Lochburn Park. Their 3-2 win over Girvan lifted the ‘Hill to 9th and they could climb as high as 7th with a win. The Vics will be looking to pick up their first win of the season, a result that would lift them off the bottom with Saltcoats not playing.

The last match of Conference A for this match day see’s Whitletts Victoria face Glasgow University at Dam Park with the home side currently sitting in 4th position and their visitors in 12th. Whitletts are unbeaten in four, having won 3 and drawn one, and have won 4 of their last six matches whilst have only won on of their last four, having not picked up all 3 points in their last two, a 1-1 draw with Lesmahagow at Craighead Park, and a 2-0 defeat last time out at Keanie Park to Johnstone Burgh

Matchday 12 Premier Division Preview – Saturday 28th August 2021

We have reached matchday twelve of the PDM Buildbase West of Scotland League and there are some big games over all five divisions, starting in the PDM Buildbase Premier Division where match of the day appears to be at Newlandsfield as 4th place Pollok take on fifth placed Darvel as both sides look to turn around recent league form that has saw the home side pick up one point from six, and the visitors two points from six. Last week on Scottish Junior Cup duty Pollok notched seven goals against fellow West of Scotland League side, Maybole from Conference A in a 7-0 win, whilst Darvel looked to have the points in the bag against Clydebank, being 2-0 up with less than ten minutes to play, but the Bankies rallied and scored the equaliser in the 93rd minute from the spot to deny Darvel the win. With both sides on 20 points, the winners will pull three points away from the other, although Darvel will still have a game in hand.

Leaders Auchinleck welcome Cumbernauld United to Beechwood Park with the visitors looking to build on last weeks win over Kilbirnie in the Junior Cup, having tasted defeat to Kilwinning last time they were on WoSFL duty. Talbot’s winning run in the league was also ended when they drew 1-1 with Beith back on the 18th of August, but like their opponents, bounced back from that draw to beat Montrose Roselea last week on cup duty. Cumbernauld currently sit 12th in the division, and a win, with other results going their way, could see them jump as high as eighth and a win for Talbot would ensure they stay top of the pile going into Matchday 13.

Benburb welcome Cumnock to New Tinto Park hoping for a change in league form that has saw them pick up one point in nine, knowing that a win would lift them above their Ayrshire counterparts who themselves have been in good form, and will be full of confidence after ending Kilwinning Rangers unbeaten start to the season last Saturday with a fine 1-0 win at Townhead Park and with the two teams above them Hurlford & Irvine Meadow’s match against each other already postponed, the ‘Nock could move into the top six with a win.

Glenafton visit Blantyre Vics at the KG Stadium a point behind their hosts and hoping last weeks 9-2 away win at Lochee Harp in the Junior Cup can kickstart a sluggish start to the season thats saw the Loch Park side pick up 7 points in 10 games so far this season, with 4 of those 7 points coming in their last six matches, Blantyre Vics themselves having played the same number of games sit on 8 points, 4 of those points coming in their last 3 league matches, as well as a 1-0 away win v Dundee Downfield last week in the cup.

Bottom club Bonnyton Thistle have not had their problems to seek in the league since their shock MD2 3-1 win over Pollok at the Synergy Arena and they will need a similar performance to the one they had then tomorrow as they face 2nd place Clydebank, who’s tails will no doubt be up after last weeks dramatic comeback against Darvel. Bonnyton have lost their last eight in a row, including a 3-1 defeat v Rossvale last time out, having lead 1-0 at half time but a win could see them climb off the bottom depending on how Kilbirnie fare at home to Glencairn, no small task given that Clydebank haven’t tasted defeat this season in the league so far, with 7 wins and 4 draws for the Holm Park side. Clydebank Captain Nicky Little also won the PDM Buildbase Goal of the Month for July this week with over 40% of the vote.

As we previously mentioned Kilbirnie Ladeside host Rutherglen Glencairn and the ex Greenock management team of Thomas Molloy and Shaun Dillon take their place in the Kilbirnie Ladeside dugout for the first time on league duty having been appointed last Thursday following the departure of Martin Ferry and his backroom team after a torrid start to the season. They lost their first match last week in the Scottish Junior Cup, losing to Cumbernauld, but with another week under their belts will be interesting to see if they can provide the spark to the Blasties season with a win that could see them leave the bottom three for this first time this season. Glencairn for their part currently sit 14th and are in good form as of late, making the quarter finals of the Strathclyde Demolition Cup last week being Division Four side Finnart Star 5-0 and taking 6 points from a possible 9 in the league, both on the road beating Benburb and Rob Roy, narrowly losing out to Auchinleck Talbot 1-0 in between those two matches.

Third place Kilwinning face Largs at Buffs Park looking to show their mettle after their first defeat of the season last week to Cumnock. The Buffs have won 3 of their last six with 2 draws and a defeat and will be looking to put the full three points on the board to keep pace with the top two. Largs themselves have had a difficult start to the season, picking up 7 points from their opening 10 matches, their last win coming on the 28th of July, a thumping 4-0 win over Cumbernauld away, but they did manage a good 1-1 draw with Pollok on their last league outing, and last week beat Conference B side Glasgow United 2-1 at Barrfields in the SJFA Cup.

Kirkintilloch Rob Roy take on Rossvale at Guys Meadow, hoping to recapture the form that saw them win four on the spin, before back to back defeats to Glenafton and Glencairn in their last two matches. A win could take Rob Roy as high as eighth but Rossvale will have table climbing ambitions of their own and a win for them would see them move above their hosts in the table, and as high as thirteenth and with two wins from their last three in the league Manager Ian Diack will be looking to make it four unbeaten.

Beith travel to Portland Park having ended Auchinlecks 8 game winning streak with a 1-1 draw at Beechwood and will look to build on that, a win for the Bellsdale Park side could put them as high as seventh in the table and four points ahead of their hosts, who themselves know a win would see them leapfrog Beith and could take them as high as eighth. Troon have been in good form themselves picking up 3 wins from their last 4 games in the league, most recently a 4-0 hammering of Glenafton, although they did taste defeat in the Junior Cup last week in a 10-9 defeat to Benburb on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Fixtures Update

I have updated the fixture list to include re-scheduled Phase 1 games that were postponed, either through Cup fixtures, Covid postponements or whatever other reasons. I have also added in some Phase 2 games to keep the teams playing where possible.I have listed and published fixtures up to and including November 20th.This was the date needed to close down Phase 1 in the Premier Division.

I have decided against going much further at the moment due to the rising incidents of Covid Postponements coming in.
I know that there will be some runs of home games or away games, but due to the circumstances that is unavoidable.
It will be under constant review and some of those runs might get broken up due to changes to incorporate Cup games and Covid postponements.

I hope I have your understanding and support. I’d also like to take this opportunity to ask if any teams would be interested in a fixture between 18th December and 8th January. There will be no games arranged during this period unless there is requests from clubs for me to arrange any.

Kind Regards

Matchday 11 Round up – Saturday 21st August 2021

With a host of WoSFL Clubs on Scottish Junior Cup duty this weekend it was a much reduced league fixture card with only ten league matches over our five divisions and a Strathclyde Demolition First Round Cup tie between Premier Division Rutherglen Glencairn and Division Four’s Finnart Star.

We start with the game of the day in the Premier Division where Clydebank and Darvel met at Holm Park. The visitors led at the break thanks to an own goal on the stroke of half time by Bailey and they doubled their lead as substitute Andy Stirling headed home after 65 minutes. There was late drama to come though and in with nine minutes remaining Clydebank grabbed themselves a lifeline when Jamie Darroch reduced the deficit firing home off the underside of the crossbar and then the Clydebank skipper kept his cool in the third minute of stoppage time for his second of the match to level the match at 2-2 with a penalty much to the delight of the home fans.

Kilwinning had yet to taste defeat in the league this season as they travelled to Townhead Park to face Cumnock knowing a win would put them back top with Auchinleck on SJFA Cup duty but that run was to come to an end at full time as a Findlay Frye goal after 31 minutes gave Cumnock all three points moving Cumnock up into 8th place in the table and the Buffs down to third.

Rossvale moved up to 15th with their first back to back wins of the season as they beat Bonnyton 3-1 at the Synergy Arena to leave Bonnyton without a point in their last eight matches and anchored to the bottom of the league. Dean McColm opened the scoring for the home side Bonntyon after 32 minutes from the spot and they took that lead into the half time break but Rossvale flew out of the traps in the second half to equalise through Jamie Young in the 48th minute. It looked like we were heading for a draw but Rossvale grabbed a second in the 85th minute courtesy of Ross McKenzie and made sure all three points would be theirs in the 90th minute when Conor MacDonald scored a third to give Rossvale a 3-1 win.

There was only one match in the PDM Buildbase Conference A where Maryhill travelled to Girvan knowing a win would move them above their hosts in the table and they went 2-0 up in the first half with goals from Ryan Wallace and Tony Etherson, Girvan pulled a goal back through Kieran Balfour as he netted from an Alan Orr cross with four minutes to go till half time. Girvan then got back on level terms five minutes after the break when Ross Clark headed home a Martyn Brown cross. Girvan had a great chance to go 3-2 ahead in the 55th minute but Craig Harvey missed from the penalty spot. This was to prove costly for the Seasiders as two minutes later Darren Kennedy regained the visitors lead to make it 3-2 to Maryhill and thats how it finished as Maryhill move up to 9th and Girvan down to 11th

Conference B also had only one match where Port Glasgow hosted Kello at the Port Glasgow Community Stadium and it was the visitors who went ahead through Kieran Pagan in the 17th minute but the Undertakers were level in the 35th minute when Jamie McKay levelled, and the Port took a 2-1 lead into the break when Thomas O’Donoghue netted with 4 minutes to go till half time. The Port sealed all three points in the 74th minute when Euan Campbell made it 3-1 to see the Port move up to 4th position in the Conference A table

Conference C had two matches and leaders Drumchapel took on a Saint Anthony’s side coming into the game on the back of two wins back to back for the first time this season and in good form but they were blown away by a Drum side who scored through captain Martin Grehan after 31 seconds for the first of his three goals, he notched his and Drumchapel’s second after 19 minutes to make it 2-0 and it was 3-0 shortly after when McMullin netted after 31 minutes. Grehan completed his hat-trick two minutes later to take the home side into the half time break 4-0 ahead. The second half was more of the same and Drumchapel made it 5-0 after 63 minutes when Ryan Deas beat Smith in the Ants goal. The Ants scored the goal of the game with a superb Shaun Gallacher strike to make it 5-1 on 67 but goals from the Smith brothers, first Cammy in 78 and then 3 minutes later Jack after 81 made it finish at Petershill Park 7-1 to Drumchapel

In the other Conference C match Neilston got back to winning ways after their long unbeaten run was ended on Wednesday night against Saint Anthony’s with a 2-0 win away to Vale of Clyde at Fullerton Park. A Cammy Haddow spot kick right on the stroke of half time gave the Farmer’s boys a 1-0 lead going into the second half and Jamie Docherty sealed the win in the 50th minute when he netted with an angled chip after Scott had saved from Bolger to lift Neilston above St Roch’s into 2nd place with the Candy on cup duty.

Kilsyth Athletic took full advantage of Finnart Star’s Strathclyde Demolition Cup duty by beating Campbeltown Pupils 5-2 at Duncansfield with a hat-trick from Jamie McAllister, as well as goals for Mikey Downs and Ryan Gibson, with 10 man Campbeltown’s two goals coming from Don McCallum.

Harmony Row moved up to fifth with Harthill on cup duty with a 1-1 draw with Glenvale, who’s 3 match winning streak was ended at New Tinto Park. The Govan side took the lead after 27 minutes through Harry Galloway but Ross Stevenson equalised with 14 minutes left to give both sides a point.

St Peters bounced back from defeat to Harmony Row in sensational fashion steam rolling BSC Glasgow 8-2 at New Western Park. Scott Arthur opened the scoring after the 27th minute and ten minutes later grabbed his and St Peter’s second ten minutes later and Macauley McArthur made it 3-0 two minutes later. Two minutes after the break Aran McDonald made it 4-0 and in the 59th minute got St Peter’s 5th goal. Captain Ciaran Friel made it 6-0 in the 66th minute before Martin Beckett reduced the deficit in the 72nd minute to make it 6-1. St Peter’s weren’t finished adding to their tally for the day though and two goals in four minutes from substitutes Ross Gemmel (79) and Anthony Gordon (82) made it 8-1 to the Paisley side before Matthew Melvin scored an 84th minute consolation goal for BSC.

There was also Strathclyde Demolition Cup action as Premier Division Rutherglen Glencairn faced off against Division Four new boys Finnart Star at the Hamish B Allan stadium. A goal-less first half, the match sprung into life only two minutes into the second when Glencairn took the lead from a Persley Sojila own goal, with the ball rebounding off the bar and off the unfortunate defenders head and into the empty net. Harry Mitchell made it 2-0 Glencairn with a fine effort from the D of the penalty box after an hour and eight minutes later he made it 3-0 with his second goal of the game with a superb free kick that gave Paton in the Finnart goal no chance. Scott Schoenville smashed home a fourth from an angle after 77 minutes to make it 4-0 and sub Marcus Fraser put the cherry on the cake in the 85th minute making it 5-0 to the Glens who now go into the draw for the quarter final of the cup.

 

Matchday 10 Full Time Round up

It was another great night in the PDM Buildbase West of Scotland tonight with plenty of goals, dramas and incidents all over four of our five divisions with Division four having the night off
