Match Details

Scorers: Grierson 3 (1p)


The Reserves picked up their first points of the season after a stirring comeback against a decent SCR side.

A familiar slow side by the Old Boys saw the visitors raced into a two goal lead – a controversial first when the home ‘keeper appeared to be fouled and the ball then appeared to be out of play before being slotted home, then a second when the defence failed to react to a short corner. However SCR were good value for their lead.

The second half saw the Old Boys enjoying more of the play and the visitors playing on the break. Sean Grierson scored his first, following up after his initial effort was blocked. His second was from the spot after a foul on Lawrence Bean. Then after SCR had hit the bar late on, Grierson broke away and chipped the on-rushing ‘keeper to seal a dramatic late win.
