LATEST MATCH

Glenafton welcomed Rossvale to Loch Park in the first meeting between the two clubs. The visitors managed by former Glens player David Gormley raced to an early lead on 3 minutes through a close range shot from Liam McGonigle.  Vale continued to look dangerous on the break and just as the Glens seemed to be getting a foothold on the game the double their lead on 26 minutes through Sean Higgins from the penalty spot.

The home side started brightly in the second half and halved the deficit on 55 minutes following a corner kick which concluded with Craig Pettigrew drilling a low shot from 8 yards out through a ruck of players, the keeper and two defenders on the line.

Glens enoyed a lot of possession with converting it into clear chances while Rossvale always looked dangerous on the break. With 10 minutes to go the hoe side were reduced to 10 men following Ryan Nisbet’s second yellow card. The home side continued to press but the visitors held out to take all three points.
