Kilsyth 3 Stoneywood-Parkvale 1

                                                SCOTTISH JUNIOR CUP ROUND 2           28/10/17                                                


Rangers go through to the next round of the Scottish although it was 

not an easy passage despite being strong favourites before the game. In 

the event they started well, going two up in the first quarter of an 

hour; eased off and let the Aberdeen side back into the match, were 

under the cosh for a spell in the second half before a third goal near 

the end finally made sure of the result.

Off to a flyer with a goal within two minutes; McFADDEN finished off a 

good move with the Parkvale defence in disarray.  It was all Rangers in 

the next ten minutes or so and it looked like they might run up a 

cricket score. An injury to Franny Kelly saw him require extended 

treatment but he was able to carry on. Another attack and a handball 

offence gave Rangers a penalty kick which Gary KELLY  placed well out 

of reach of Duncan. Finally the visitors began to show that they were 

not going to lie down after all and in one good attack they had a shot 

strike the crossbar. Their chances looked to be reduced though when 

Jamie Crowmar was red carded after a bad tackle on Chris Martin, 

although he also was able to carry on. Although down to ten men now 

Parkvale were much more in the game now, they went in two down at the 


A real shock for Rangers within a minute of the restart; sloppy 

defending let GRIEG  in to put one past Kane and Parkvale were right 

back in the tie. It was a very different game now, with Jordan Crowmar 

giving the Rangers defence a very hard time with his pacy runs they 

were going all out for an equaliser and for a time seemed very likely 

to get one. Their chances were also improved when David Waters was also 

shown a red card to even things up at ten men apiece.  Rangers had 

their chances to pull ahead though with a fine effort from Smith 

skimming the crossbar and forced several corners, none of which 

produced any result. Eventually Scott Davidson was introduced into the 

fray and within a minute some good work between himself and McFadden 

almost brought a goal. Parkvale also made a couple of substitutions and 

were still looking just as likely to get the next goal. Franny Kelly 

eventually was replaced by Dachnowicz having put in a good showing in 

his first game for more than two months after coming back from injury. 

Eventually with just over ten minutes remaining it was Corey PEARSON 

who took the pressure off with a very good strike from sixteen yards to 

restore Rangers two goal advantage. It was all over from this point 

although Livingstone came on for Gary Kelly to shore up the defence. 

The third round draw is awaited, but with a real weeding out of many of 

the weaker sides in this round a stiffer test may be just be around the 

corner. Meantime a climb up the league table must be the first

Scone 0 Kilsyth 3

                                                              SCOTTISH JUNIOR CUP ROUND 3    23/12/17                                                               


After four failed attempts to have this game played it finally went 

ahead  on Saturday, and it was good news for Rangers in that they 

cruised through to the fourth round of the competition and set up a 

home tie with Carnoustie Panmure. It is scheduled to take place in mid 

January and hopefully will go ahead on the due date.

The conditions for the game were quite good after the long freeze but 

the ground itself was extremely basic. A stiff crosswind promised to 

make the game a bit of a lottery and so it proved with both teams 

finding it difficult to control the ball, passes going astray and such 

shots as were being attempted failing to find the target. Rangers did 

have the better of the play early on but really did not trouble Gorton 

in the home goal in the first twenty minutes or so. The only attempt 

which came close was a twenty five yard strike from Andy McLaughlin 

which just skimmed the crossbar on its way over. Gradually Scone did 

start to come into the game and with the wind helping them they did 

have one good attempt which had Kane at full stretch turning it round 

for a corner. Rangers did force a succession of corners near the 

interval and following one the ball did end up in the net but was 

judged to be well offside, No scoring though come the halftime whistle.

An early flurry from Scone after the restart but it was soon Rangers 

dominating the game and the pressure eventually paid off; a clumsy 

tackle on Franny Kelly resulted in a penalty award and GARY KELLY put 

it past Gorton to ease the pressure. A few changes were made by both 

teams, Dolan replaced Franny Kelly and Scone also made a couple of 

substitutions. It was quite late in the game though before Rangers came 

up with a second goal, a good cross into the box and McGLAUGHLIN shot 

home to ease the fans worries. Near the end Dolan put over a well 

directed corner kick and it struck a Whitworth and ended up in the net 

for a third goal, this time an O.G. A good win after a long spell of 

inactivity and with Petershill rather surprisingly falling at 

Carnoustie a stiffer test may await them in the next round although 

with the benefit of a home draw there is every chance of further 

progress to come.

Kilsyth 0 Carnoustie 2




Rangers crashed out of the Scottish at home to Carnoustie, it was a 

relatively easy passage for the visitors, they were clearly the better 

side and could very easily have run up a bigger margin of victory. 

Some major rebuilding is required before Rangers can compete at this 

level, but the priority for this season must now become the fight to 

remain in the superleague first division.

It was obvious right from the start that Carnoustie were well up for 

the challenge and put severe pressure on the home defence creating 

quite a few chances early on. They won quite a few corners and had a 

couple of freekicks in good positions but Duke, standing in for Kane, 

made several good saves to keep the scoresheet blank for the opening 

half hour. However even he could not prevent the inevitable and a good 

ball in from the right was shot home by URQUART after thirty four 

minutes to open the scoring for the visitors. Diack had a chance to 

level matters shortly after but was slow in getting to the ball in a 

race with Cormack. Near halftime Simpson, who had been a major threat  

to the home defence needed some onfield treatment but was able to 

continue. Only one goal ahead at the interval barely flattered 


A good opening by Rangers to the second half, they applied some 

pressure and it looked like they would be rewarded when a penalty kick 

was awarded after a Carnoustie defender handled in the box. Gary Kelly 

stepped up but somehow managed to miss the target altogether and send 

the ball wide of the post. A big let down and only a few minutes later 

things got worse when SIMPSON shot home a second goal for Carnoustie. 

Rangers did come very close to reducing the deficit not long afterwards 

when McGlauchlin was right through only to see his shot hit the base of 

the post. Rangers made several changes up front in an effort to get 

back into the match but really it was to little effect; the visitors 

defence was very solid and had problem in holding on for the inevitable 

comfortable win. What is already a disappointing season just got more 

so, league points are now the main objective starting at Irvine Meadow 

this coming Saturday.

KILSYTH; Duke, Conville, Hughes, Falconer, Harrison, Livingstone, 

Pearson, G Kelly, Diack, McGlaughlin, F Kelly.

Subs. McFadden, Davidson, Duffy, Smith, Dolan.

CARNOUSTIE; Cormack, Cook, Mair, Paterson, Buggins, Roberts, Urquart, 

Conway, Dignan, McCabe, Simpson.      

Game next Saturday, away to Irvine Meadow, league match KO 2pm.
