Match Report


Despite the rain sodden surface both sides went at it hammer and tongs. It was an even contest and the Coatbridge team won because Rice grabbed a gilt-edged gift to score the only goal.

It came in the first half, when Brogan lashed over an accurate cross. It looked a keepers ball, but Gallacher lost his grip. Fallon missed his kick, and Rice netted with a first time swipe.

Struthers, of Albion, who was booked in the first half, was replaced by Wylie after the interval.
