East Kilbride Tournament

Saturday 19th July

Glenafton Athletic 1 Stirling Albion 2

The Glens were on top during the early encounters but it was the SFL side that took lead when John O'Neill headed past Chris Fahey making his debut in the Afton goals. Further chances for either side were few and far between although John McMillan almost sneaked an equaliser just before the break. Half-time Glens 0 Stirling 1

The Beanos almost increased their lead in the second half but Harty's shot battered off the Glens post with Fahey beaten. Again chances were thin on the ground but John Paul Grant took his when the Glens were awarded a penalty and he slotted the spot-kick beyond Myles Hogarth. With a penalty shoot-out pending Liam Corr broke the deadlock with a 20 yard thunderous shot which gave Fahey no chance and it would be Stirling that would face hosts East Kilbiride Thistel in Sunday's final.
