Three wins todayGood wins for the Seniors, Juniors and the Amateurs today in league games.
The Seniors made one change from Tuesday’s starting XI with Omar Kader coming in for Donal Henretty. We started on fire with Jack Beesley scoring within a minute from an Omar cross. We continued to dominate and within quarter of an hour we had scored a second. Gavin Malin put through Alex King and Keith McLeod slotted through his cross. It continued to be one way traffic and Alec turned well in the box to slot home the third. The fourth came on the half hour mark when Chris Townsley headed on a Jack corner for Ross Archibald to head home his tenth of the season. The remainder of the game was played at a slower pace and midway through the half Miller nodded home a corner to pull one back for Preston.
The Malt and Hops man of the match went to Alex King again who is in a rich vein of form and was watched by the assistant manager of an SPL team today.
