United “Drum” up late blast to end Glebe Hibs Treble hopes

OOFT..They say its never over till the final whistle but WOW….Tonight was a fairy-tale ending for DRUMCHAPEL UNITED
whilst heartbreaking for Glebe Hibs.
Having taken a first half lead after 9 mins and with just 2 mins left of the 90 Glebe fans must have thought they had a treble.. BUT..Drumchapel’s never say die attitude saw them grab an equaliser in the 88th minute.
Desolate but still thinking that Extra time was ahead Glebe were devastated as the team that always seem to get the job done scored twice in injury time to lift the cup 3-1.
Fantastic never say never atttitude from Drumchapel who kept their Treble hopes alive but must have thought it was not gonna be their night until those fateful last minutes.
Huge congratulations to DRUMCHAPEL UNITED on doing the big 2 Cups Double whilst all must have felt Glebe Hibs deserved a better ending but on tonights showing they will be a force in the Premier Division next season.
Thanks to Scott Struthers at Hamilton Accies for his incredible support to us and amateur game as a whole but also to Joe Tumilty at Sponsors JST ELECTRONICS

Promotion to the Premier Division secured

Milngavie “Wander”into cup delight

Milngavie Wanderers held on despite a late surge from Glasgow Wellington to win the JST ELECTRONICS GLASGOW CUP at Petershill stadium last night.
Another full house watched a thoroughly entertaining match which ebbed and flowed.
Wellies went 1 up in 3 mins..just the start they would have dreamed of but the Wanderers hit back just 6 mins later and then took the lead at 2-1 into half time.
The second half was end to end stuff until Mingavie made it 3-1 and seemed destined to win. But..Glasgow Wellington who were last seasons runners up laid siege to the Milngavie goal and deservedly got one back. Only a worldy save kept Milngavie ahead as time eventually ran out to see Milngavie Wanderers become cup winners.
The Saltire Digital Player of the match award went to Milngavie’s Scott Falconer and Joe Tumilty of JST made the presentations.

BRAES..HEAD TO CUP TRIUMPH

The Spark Commander/Totally Rewired Renfrewshire and Inverclyde Cup Final took place at a packed New Tinto Park last night.
Had it not been for 2 great goalkeeping perfomances and the woodwork being constantly rattled then a goalfest would have occured.
As it was Port Glasgow Athletic saw several attempts saved or crash against posts and bars whilst Breahead took advantage to score 3.
Braehead started the first half on top and deservedly took the lead. PGA came into it but the half ended 1 nil.
PGA started the 2nd half strongly hitting the woodwork again and again before Braehead score a 2nd.
Sadly then PGA had a player dismissed and Braehead wrapped things up with a late penalty.
The good crowd were well entertained and were thanked for supported their teams. The league also thanked sponsors for their support.
The Saltire Digital player of the match was awarded to Braeheads Steven Black

Penalty shoot out drama sees Glebe Hibernian overcome Never(ton) say die rivals

Well, that was one of the best finals we have seen. The DK TILING SERVICES Lanarkshire Cup Final at Petershill had absolutely everything you could wish for.
So first up, what a great atmosphere created by the fantastic support for both teams, who were a credit to the two teams and the league, so thanks to them.
The players, performance and conduct was a real credit to both Stephen Kane, Manager of Glebe, and Jim Robert of Netherton
The Match officials, Joe Sweeney(Ref) assisted by Barry Livingstone and Brian O’Neill with 4th official Charlie Robertson were really superb, with not any complaints from even the crowd!!!!

The game then, well too, much too, much to write it all. Glebe deservedly struck in the first half to lead at ht, then Netherton deservedly equalised in the second half
The next Drama was Extra time which in the first 15 saw Glebe reduced to ten men when a second caution saw a red card issued.
Then, player of the match Josh Kane, Netherton goalie, made, a triple stop that will have people talking about it for a long long time. I still cant believe what I saw.
So after 127 mins of non stop action, it went to the lottery of pens where Glebe stopper Craig Hart secured the trophy with two saves, which even that was not enough to outshine his opposite number.
At the presentation, all the good qualities of behaviour and sportsmanship were on display and pointed out by the master of ceremonies.

CAN WE HAVE MORE OF THAT PLEASE.

Thanks to Dylan Knox of DK Tiling services, Stephen from Saltire Digital, and Caitlin and the catering staff at the venue.

OOFT WHAT A NIGHT AND CONGRATS TO GLEBE HIBERNIAN

Is this the first leg of a treble

The Cutting Edge Engravers Champions Cup Final had a first. Both Dinamo Paisley and Drumchapel United had both clubs aiming for an unheard of treble. Champions Cup, Strathclyde Cup and Premier League so one dream would be ended at the Final at New Douglas Park Hamilton.
So to the game..the first talking point came in the seventh minute when Jordan Penny of Drum recieved a red card for serious foul play…what a way to start.
Adam Calder surprisingly opened the scoring in the 42nd minute given that Dinamo had the man advantage and that was the ht scoreline.
Into the second half and Dinamo kept pushing to get back into the game and skipper Chrissy Martin levelled things up on 66 mins. The remaining 24 mins wher very hard fought but we went to extra time.
Goalless in the first 15 the stage was set for a hero to step forward.
Now odds would have been good on the winner as Ian Paterson, fresh from his recent Scotland appearance in Dublin stood up with a brace to secure the cup for Drumchapel United.
The presentation saw James McCLuskey of Drum recieve the Saltire Digital player of the match award.
Massive thanks to Cutting Edge for their sponsorship, Saltire Digital for the pom award and Stuart MacKenzie of Kelvin Smith for the supply of matchballs

Cutting Edge Engravers Champions Cup Final

The wait goes on to get this final played.
Whilst there is a date planned (1/3/24), both finalists potentially would have a Scottish Cup tie on the following day, so if 1 or both make it thru their tie in February, it would raise an issue on getting it played. It was even joked that they could get drawn against each other in the Scottish and play the tie a week earlier so we could still have the final.
The venue, Hamilton Accies, is booked so we have to await developments.
One thing that has been approved by the league executive, is the proposal from the match secretary and referee advisor, is the officials who will take charge of the game
Referee: Ewan Cruickshanks
Assistants: Stuart MacDonald & Andy Seymour
4th Official: David McGuire
