Hall Cup Semi-Final Dumbarton Wanderers 7-2 Giffnock AFC

1st March 2015

Dumbarton Wanderers will face Bridgewater in the final of the Hall Cup after defeating Giffnock in the second semi-final which took place at Lochinch Sports Ground yesterday. The game kicked off just as a light drizzle began to fall but both sides started at a good tempo with Dumbarton enjoying territorial advantage in the opening stages of what was to be an end to end first half.

Chances were limited in the first half with defences on top until Dumbarton opened the scoring in the 40th minute when a cross from McCafferty found Dillon in space inside the box and he slotted it home with some aplomb. Giffnock were unhappy with this decision as they thought Dillon was offside but they responded in fine fashion when Blythe cracked a 25 yard

Hall Cup Semi- Final Bridgewater 3-2 Duncanrig

22nd February 2015

Bridgewater continued their remarkable run of success by reaching the Hall Cup Final at the hands of plucky Duncanrig yesterday. Bridgewater took the lead through an Allan Ramsay penalty after 10 minutes following good work down the right involving Jason McGoldrick who was involved in most of the first half action. Duncanrig responded well to this setback and could have squared the game in the 15th minute but loud claims for a penalty, which the ref turned down, followed by a header over the bar proved to be their best chances of levelling the score.

In the 34th minute a hopeful punt up the park wasn't dealt with by the Duncanrig defence and Martin Currie coolly lobbed the keeper from 25 yards to put Bridgewater 2-0 ahead. More was to come

Goldenhill 3-1 Hillington

30th November 2014

Goldenhill 3-1 Hillington

Goldenhill beat fellow Premier 1 side Hillington by 3 goals to 1 in the second semi-final of the Centenary Trophy. There wasn't much between the sides but the finishing of Goldenhill was the biggest difference. Damon Gray opened the scoring for Goldenhill with a tidy finish early in the first half. Goldenhill were on top at this time and midway through the first period Duncan McLaughlin scored a quite sublime goal. He picked up the ball 40 yards from goal and beat a number of Hillington defenders with some dazzling footwork before slotting the ball into the Hillington net. 2-0. Goldenhill saw out the half in control of the game.

Half -time  Goldenhill 2-0 Hillington

The second half was just underway when Stuart Ashton scored a fine goal from close range

Finnart reach Centenary Final

21st November 2014

Motherwell Thistle 1 - 5 Finnart AFC

Finnart eased into the Final of the Centenary Trophy with a comfortable victory over a plucky Motherwell side who battled all the way to the final whistle. Finnart stormed into the lead in just 30 seconds when Jason McArthur got in behind the Thistle defence and drove hard and low across the 'Well keeper Aiton, who could only parry the ball into the path of Ben Mills who stroked it in. 1-0. For the following minutes it looked likely that Finnart would add to their score and Motherwell were finding it hard to contain them but out of the blue Bert McMaster found himself in on goal and he beat Brian Paton to the keepers left.1-1. This was a major blow for Finnart but
