GA PROGRESS FOR PANNY

Carnoustie went in to Saturdays GA Engineering Cup tie with Islavale with just two fit substitutes on the bench and one of those was Alan Cormack but it got worse.

With only 13 available players, manager Alan McSkimming was forced in to changes. Jamie Robbie came back in place of Alan Cormack, Pat Smith came in for Gordon Macdonald and Ryan Taylor same in for Luke McGeehan which meant there needed to be a reshuffle with Smith playing just behind Sam Simpson and Ryan Taylor on the left of a midfield four.

Carnoustie started well and took the lead through Ryan Roche when a corner as headed backwards by Ewan Buggins, hitting Roche and going in. Steven Cook made it 2-0 on 19 minutes when he slammed the ball home after a fine passing move. With just over half an hour gone The Gowfers lost Roche with what looked like a very serious knee injury that resulted in the big centre half heading for Ninewells.

The second half was just ten minutes old when another Buggins header came back off a post and hit Danny Millar in the “midrift” and went in and then ten minutes later, Jamie McCabe confused the keeper with a deceptive deliberately mishit shot that went in at the near post. The visitors pulled one back on 78 minutes when a Scott McIntosh effort hit the inside of the post and was adjudged to have crossed the line before Steven Cook could clear the ball.

Not a vintage performance but good enough to win the tie and be in the Quarter Finals where Carnoustie face a trip across the Tay to the land of milk and honey to face Tayport at The Canniepairt.The second half was just ten minutes old when another Buggins header came back off a post and hit Danny Millar in the “midrift” and went in and then ten minutes later, Jamie McCabe confused the keeper with a deceptive deliberately mishit shot that went in at the near post.
