Kilwinning Rangers 1 GLENAFTON ATHLETIC 2
Scorers : Burns (og), Robertson
Glens go top after victory over reigning champions
Called in briefly to Abbey Park en-route to the Kilmarnock vs. Hibernian game. Arrived in time to hear the cheers of the Buffs fans celebrating the opening goal on the 10 minute mark and watch them threaten to add to that in the next ten.
Boyd shot buffed round the post
The Glens weathered the storm and began to carve out chances of their own but found the Buffs keeper in good form, keeping his team in front with two excellent point blank saves.
Gary Matthews saves the day (if you look hard enough)
The Buffs continued to threaten and were rewarded with a penalty following an apparent hand-ball in a packed penalty box. Big Gary Matthews came to rescue, stretching to his right to guide the ball past the post. As a I left the ground for the 3pm kick-off at Rugby Park, there was another loud cheer from the Abbey side of the park and it was clear that the Glens had equalised with 5 minutes or so of the half remaining. Further cheers were heard on the Fenwick Moor as the final score of Kilwinning 1 Glenafton 2 was announced on WestSound, formerly aka Buffsound*.

* The Club News in today's match programme had a go at WestSound anchorman Iain Ferguson for expressing his opinion that the Glens were the only Ayrshire team that were capable of winning the league. There is no truth in the rumour that the programme notes were written by Jim McSherry - there were no spelling mistakes
'The ba's on the slates', Bunion - but never mind the Killie beat Hibs 3-1 !
