Cambuslang Rangers 3-1 Glencairn

Abercorn 1st Division

Wednseday 5th May 2003

at Somervell Park




A downpour before the game made the surface very tricky for both sides as Cambuslang tried to keep up their promotion and championship bid alive. Cambuslang opened the scoring in the 12 minute when McCarroll played Brown through on goal, the Lang man held off a few challenges before slipping the ball pas the Glens keeper. The visitors hit back against the run of play and snatched an equaliser after Rowan failed to collect what seemed a tame ball across the face of goal. But McLaughlin fired home. Lang regained the lead through top scorer Brown who scored his second of the match, when Glens trailist keeper spilled the ball into Brown's path and he blasted the easy chance home from 4 yards. The game was wrapped up on the 30 minute mark when McCarroll fired home a 25 yard free kick giving the keeper no chance.


The second half was pretty drab with neither side showing any real urgency. Both side had half chances but it was Cambuslang who ran out comfortable winners in the end and keep them on course for the championship, their first since 1991.
