The Latest Update On The Junior Scene
Updated Tuesday, 18th March 2008
Our correspondent reports on a big weekend of football junior cup-tie action.
It was a big week on the junior card as the Scottish Cup quarter finals took place. There was a major shock out East as much fancied Glenafton crashed out to lowly Thornton Hibs. The Hibees also knocked out Petershill in the earlier rounds and booked their place in the semi final with a 2-1 win over Gordon Dalziel's side. Creamery Park also saw Clydebank record a credible replay to big spenders Bathgate. Mark Hailstones opened the scoring with a terrific header which looped into the top corner. Despite the Bankies more than matching Thistle in the first half, the second saw relentless pressure from the home side. Ex bankie Paul McGrillen was furious with the referee and his linesman after he was booked for diving when going down from a challenge from keeper Barry John Corr. Video footage afterwards showed it was the correct decision - and a brave one to make at such a critical point in the match. Bathgate's pressure paid off though and McFadyen headed home with 15 mins left to earn a replay at Glenhead.
