JAMBO UNCHAINED AS GLENAFTON ENJOY CUP GLORY

Jamie McKernon won the man-of-the-match award after his freedom of Portland Park display orchestrated Glenafton’s convincing victory over Auchinleck Talbot in the Ardagh Cup final at Troon today.Truth  be told all those that run him close to the award played in either in red and white stripes or in the case of keeper Brian McGarrity  all blue, who produced a faultless display against his former club. The New Cumnock side had enjoyed the best of the chances when they took the lead on 15 minutes.  Aaron Connolly was tackled on the edge of the box and the ball quickly gathered by Cameron Marlow who drove forward before clipping the ball beyond the advancing keeper Andy Leishman.  Soon after Glens almost doubled their lead after excellent wing play from Adam Strachan set up shooting chances in the Talbot box and Connolly was unfortunate to see effort crash off the crossbar. It was Connolly that came close again soon after the restart after he connected with a Michael Wardrope cutback but the ball looped over Leishman’s bar.

On 53 minutes Alain Kinney caught the Talbot defence flat-footed and left himself with a free run on goal before nut-megging the out-rushing Leishman to stroke the ball into net. Just after the hour mark the big keeper made a stunning save from Kinney’ vicious volley as the Glens pushed for a third.  There was to be no more scoring and the Glens ran out comfortable winners.
