Stagecoach West of Scotland Super League, First Division

In the 80th minute of this important league match at Ladywell Stadium, Maybole, on Saturday, the home goalkeeper Scott Johnstone brought off a magnificent save from a header by Cumbernauld’s Danny Boyle - a save that had Maybole and United supporters applauding in unison.

At this period of the game Cumbernauld, a goal behind, were pressing for an equaliser and looking likely to succeed, but five minutes later the home team scored a second goal and then a third to secure the points. Although United got a goal back in the last minute it was too late and when the referee blew his whistle to end the contest it was a very disappointed Cumbernauld party who made the long journey home.
