First Team Debuts

Milestones
Ross Tokely scored his first goal for the Club.

Rovers started well but gradually the visitors took control. The first half was hectic and the best chance fell to Charlie Christie in the 40th minute - he hit the post after a great run as the keeper narrowed the angle.

In 54 minutes Mike Teasdale gave the home side the lead with a powerful header following a Daisy Ross corner. At the other end Jim Calder made a great diving save in the 63rd minute from a Watters drive.

In 77 minutes Ross Tokely made it 2-0 with a tremendous 20 yard drive after good work on the left by Daisy Ross. In 86 minutes it was 3-0. Charlie Christie passed to Iain Stewart on the right and he lobbed it over the head of the advancing Ross.

In the end it was a convincing win but it was hard fought.
