Cambuslang Rangers 1-3
Central League Cup 2nd Round
Saturday 19th March
Cambuslang Rangers were involved in a shock cup K.O. at the weekend when 2nd division side Glasgow Perthshire knocked them out of the League Cup. Although there are 2 divisions separating the 2 teams the Lang can have no real complaints as they were beaten by a hungrier, and on the day, a better team.
Cambuslang manager Andy Cunningham missed the shock cup K.O. as he went on a spying mission to check out some future opponents.
Lang keeper Craig Rowan was rested and placed on the bench allowing number 2 Lowe a rare start. Defender Martin Feenie was missing in the heart of the defence.
Very little happened in the opening 15 minutes and indeed the first notable action was the opening goal from Cambuslang. Some Lang pressure paid off when McCarroll cut in from the left and rolled the ball into the path of Coulter who cracked his shot home, despite a brave effort by the keeper to keep it out but the power on the shot saw it home.
should have found themselves level only a minute later but Marcus headed over
from 6 yards out. Lang's Burns also went close but his effort only found the
side net and striker Alan McCrae forced the Shire keeper into a fine stop with
his drive. Cambuslang should have doubled their lead on the half hour mark. A
fine move down the flank saw

injury. McCarroll went close on the hour mark but his free kick was well
tipped over by the Shire keeper. Then
