Emirates Scottish Junior Cup, second round

CUMBERNAULD United travelled to Ayrshire for this second-round tie with six players unavailable through injury, suspension or work commitments but still had far too much for a very poor Dalry outfit.

If the Guy’s Meadow side had taken half the chances on offer they would have returned home with a score well into double figures.

In a pitch resembling a farmer’s ploughed field all credit must go to United who stuck to their passing game throughout. Although frustrated with some poor finishing it became apparent very early in this match that if they were patient the goals would come and they would be in the hat for the next round.
