Mixed day of Cup action

Posted on Saturday, September 17th, 2011

The Seniors crashed out of the Image Printers Cup 4 – 2 away to Gretna while the Juniors had a superb victory on penalties over SuperLeague team Lochee United.
The Juniors were 2 – 0 down with ten minutes to go when Sean Wringe pulled one back. Into injury time and Chris Milligan scores from 20 yards to equalise. Straight to penalties and it was Lewis Kidd who scored the winner as we went through 8 – 7 to record our best win since join the Juniors. A great result, the pic on Kenny’s facebook shows the team celebration.
The Seniors went down in an exciting game at Gretna. We scored first with a snapshot by Chris Anderson but ten minutes later Jardine scored from 25 yards to equalise. A minute later and we were ahead again, a good turn by Chris and Jordan Finnie slotted home. Five minutes before half time and ex Annan striker Sorley equalised again. into the second half and it was Sorley who gave Gretna the lead. We were looking dangerous but midway through the half Scott Fusco picked up a straight red card for arguing with the referee. Keith McLeod did have a chance which wen just wide but it was Sorley who completed his hat trick in the last minute. Jack Beesley then had to go off injured with a bad ankle knock. An x ray back up in Edinburgh showed no break but ligament damage.
Robbie Manson winning man of the match for a driving performance in midfield.
