Match Report


Meadow Park, Bathgate.  29/08/2013.  Pitch bumpy and greasy with drizzle.

A blistering drive into the top corner by Melrose to complete the Jags scoring was the highlight of a game dominated by Thistle’s intricate passing strategy against a plucky Armadale team.

A combative opening spell was broken firstly by a towering header from Gibson who rose like an eagle to a Kelly corner which was soon followed by a smart Mungall finish from another corner.

With their passing noticeably improving in the second half the Jags went further ahead when a slide rule pass from Mungall brought out a good save by the Armadale keeper from Gibson but could not prevent Forrest netting the rebound.
Armadale managed a consolation when slack defending at a corner allowed the Armadale three bites at the cherry before finally finishing into the corner.

A good tune up, with lots of good performances all over the field before the Jags commence their start of the Grail Trail at the weekend.

MoM: Hard to split the midfielders who all contributed
