2011 Review January: Point at Pebble

Bad weather had wiped out the Junior card from late November 2010 through to early January 2011. The Glens had first footed the New Year precariously placed 9th in the 14 team league, in which the bottom four faced relegation at the season’s close. The Loch Park side had a symmetrical league record of W3 L3 D3 and were 10 points behind league leaders Whitletts Victoria.

With the weather still impacting on the fixture list game-rusty Glens relied on friendlies to stretch the legs and amassed 10 goals in three days with victories over Troon (5-2) and Ayr United U19s (5-1).  Finally on the 29th January, some 10 weeks after their last competitive match, the Glens travelled to New Pebble Park to face bottom of the league Annbank United.  Manager Greg Denham introduced a new defensive line up with a back three comprising debutants Craig McEwan (from Pollok) and Scott Wilson (Linlithgow Rose) and New Cumnock lad Ryan McChesney making only his second start of the season.  A clean sheet was duly delivered, however not only by the Glens but also by their hosts with keeper Brian McGarrity saving a spot-kick for the home side from man-of-the match McEwan.
