Stagecoach Super League Premier Division

GLENAFTON ATHLETIC  1 vs. Johnstone Burgh 0

Scorer: Houston

The Glens introduced new striker Darren Johnstone signed this morning from local rivals Kello Rovers. and he went straight into the team. pairing up with Scott Houston. The Glens also welcomed back Steview Agnew after he sat out the midw-week victory at Maybole. Johnstone Burgh were looking to kick start their season after a disappointing showing in the Abercorn League Cup and a heavy home defeat to a strong Maryhill side on the opening league game of the season. Both teams finished last season on the same points, and the honours shared with a victory each in the two league games contested. The Glens came out top on this close encounter when after 20 minutes of play Aggie latched on to a slack defensive pass and found Houston who hammered the ball home from 10 yards.

Good performance all round, perhaps we could have scored more and killed them off, but to complain would be to detract from a good showing and a first league win in 17 attempts. A great debut for Darren, who along side Bella gives us a real presence upfront. Something we've not had for a couple of seasons. MOM in my humble opinion was Aggie once more, he really has started on fire this season.

Glenafton came out on top in a poor, poor game involving two very bad teams. The fact it stayed one nil speaks volumes about Glenafton's shortcomings rather than any indication of how JB performed. JB are even worse than they usually are but on yesterdays showing Glenafton won't be too far away from us in the final league placings.

Four points in the bag,one defeat so far this season, certainly shows up our shortcommings.It was not the greatest game yesterday,i dont think big Garry had one save to make,and if we had taken our chances the scoreline would have shown our domination of the game.After the exodus of some of our players i think Gerry is starting to put together a decent team.
