CUMBERNAULD United were a bit unlucky to be knocked out of the West of Scotland Cup on Saturday by Ayrshire giants Auchinleck Talbot.

Displaying their usual footballing skills, United were the superior team in the first half and were ahead of one of Scotalnd’s foremost junior sides at the interval.

As expected Talbot exerted pressure at the start of the second period and got an equaliser. Their winning goal, however, had a large element of luck and unfortunately the Cumbernauld boys could not find a further score to level the tie.
