Sat 7th Feb - Clach 4 Deveronvale 1

The holders of the cup Clachnacuddin comfortably sealed their place in the next round after coming from behind to see off the challenge posed by Deveronvale.

The game got off to a lightning start when John Campbell was left red-faced after the back pass from Andrew Skinner took an awkward bobble and Graeme Rodger nipped in behind him to slot it home to give the away side the lead.

Minutes later Paul Brindle was brought down what seemed to be the outside of the box but referee Graham Fraser pointed to the spot to the horror of the Vale players. Michael Finnis stepped up and confidently smashed the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-1.

Daniel McLennan and Paul Brindle were causing havoc in the Vale defence and both linked up well but McLennan’s low drive from the edge of the box fell on the wrong side of the right hand post.

The strikers combined again midway through the first half and this time McLennan got his shot on target but it was tipped wide.

This was a classic cup game with it going end to end.  Craig Simpson had a low effort well held by Campbell. Minutes later Stuart Leslie's shot went just wide of the target.

However nine minutes from half-time a Lawrie free kick found McGurk who volleyed across the box and veteran midfielder Martin Callum scrambled the ball over the line to give the Merkinchers the advantage.

Minutes into the second half Vale had a strong claim for a penalty when Rodger went down in the box but Clach players surrounded the forward claiming he dived. Graham Fraser agreed to the dismay of the Vale team.

But 10 minutes into the second period a corner played into the box by Lawrie caused a bit of a stramash in the box with several shots being blocked by the Vale defence but Ian Penwright fired home with his shot crashing off the underside of the bar and into the back of the net.

Despite the score line, Vale had the majority of possession and chances in the second half. Several dangerous crosses came from Simpson but Vale just couldn't capitalise. Leslie looked dangerous throughout the second half but had a late shot blocked.

But with eight minutes left Scott Davidson entered the fray at Grant Street and within seconds the young forward was celebrating Clach's fourth of the afternoon. Penwright played a ball through with the outside of his right foot and Davidson raced through to coolly slot it home to seal the win.

The holders comfortably through and will be hoping to replicate last season's success. However Vale will quickly want to forget this score line.
