Good win at the Pans

Posted on Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

It turned out a 5 – 2 victory but Preston fought all the way after losing two early goals.  Gavin Malin nodded home the first from a  Jack Beesley cross before Ross Archibald rounded keeper Gilpin to score from an acute angle in the tenth minute.  Preston came back into the game and McColl scored a great free kick on the half hour mark.  Just on half time Donal Henretty beautifully curled home third, Donal had replaced Gavin who pulled a groin early in the game.  Fiften minutes into the second half and Alex King slotted the fourth after a good move involving Jack and Keith McLeod.  Sean McAuley pulled one back against his old team before Keith scored the fifth in the final minute when his shot squirmed past Gilpin.   The Malt and Hops man of the match going to Alex King.

Team: Flockhart, O’Donnell (Fowlie 85), Hoskins, Sivewright, Townley, Archibald, King, Manson, Beesley (Finnie 76), McLeod, Malin (Henretty 20) Subs not used: Livingston, McGarrie
