Troon 2 Glenafton 1

Ardagh Glass Cup Quarter-Final

Wednesday 26th August, Portland Park,  Troon

TROON 2 (1)


A minute’s silence was held before kick off as a mark of respect for Irvine Victoria’s club secretary Mrs Sheena Thomson who recently passed away.

Holders travelled to Portland Park, the scene of their Ardagh Glass Cup final victory over Auchinleck Talbot last season, to face Troon in the quarter-final of this season’s competition. In a pulsating cup-tie it was the home side that broke the deadlock 10 minutes before the break when Adam Forsyth headed home a cross from Dale Moore.

Glenafton Squad: Craig McGuffieTroon doubled their lead in 58 minutes after Dean Keenan slammed home a free kick. Glenafton halved the deficit two minutes later through local lad Craig McGuffie who gave former Glens’ goalie Ally Semple no chance with a classy header. Play continued to flow from end to end without producing any further scoring. Congratulations to Troon.
