Scott Takes His Chance To Shine
Updated Friday, 22nd January 2010
Players have to take their chances when they come along even if they are at the cost of a teammate.
Monday night saw Brechin City drop out of the Scottish Cup thanks to a 1-0 win for Ayr United. While disappointed at the result, manager Jim Duffy was pleased to discover he had another excellent goalkeeper at the club. Twenty one year old David Scott made his starting debut for the club in place of the experienced Craig Nelson, who has recently undergone a cartilage operation. The young keeper took his chance and put up a sterling performance as Ayr threw everything but the kitchen sink at the Glebe Park side to grab a second goal.
Speaking after the game, Duffy said: "I found out tonight that we have two fine goalkeepers at Brechin. David joined us from Albion Rovers over the summer and has looked good in training but you are never sure how players will be until you see them play for 90 minutes and I though he done really well. The freezing weather came at a bad time for David as he would have had a wee run of games with Craig out injured but he certainly impressed tonight, especially in the last 15 minutes when Ayr were making us chase the game as we tired after not playing for so long."
