Match Details

Scorer: Hassan


The Reserves slumped out of the County Cup after Old Russellians punished several defensive errors to progress. After a fairly even first half hour with few chances, a poor backpass saw the visitors have two players clear for a simple finish. Then on the stroke of half-time, the Old Boys failed to clear and allowed too much time for the Russellian player on the edge of the box to pick his spot in the bottom corner.

The second half saw the Old Boys play with more fight and a better tempo and after the introduction of Abdul Hassan looked more dangerous going forward. The Old Boys twice hit the woodwork, but it was the visitors who scored again after another defensive error put the visiting right winger through on goal and he slotted home comfortably. An excellent turn and finish saw Hassan pull one goal back, but in the closing minutes, the away side were again allowed too much time on the ball on the edge of the area, and the finish gave the home ‘keeper no chance.
