Gartcairn’s resounding Scottish Junior Cup victory is perfect preparation for Cambuslang clash


Gartcairn’s 5-2 Scottish Junior Cup victory over Tayport is the perfect preparation to face Cambuslang Rangers tonight (Wednesday), according to assistant Scott Mills.

The Airdrie club progressed in style in the second round, with a hat trick from Ross McNeil complemented by strikes from David Sinclair and Eddie Ferns, drawing a third round draw at home against Beith in late October.

Mills is hoping they can shock the West of Scotland League B Conference leaders and half the six-point deficit, despite having played one game more than the Rangers.

He said: “It was a great result and a good performance to go with it, so we’re really happy.

“It was a good start, we scored 60 seconds and we never looked back, to be honest.

“We knew it was going to happen and we were rewarded. The boys have trained well, worked hard, it’s a great atmosphere, and we’re starting to settle in as a group, so we’re delighted.

“To get it the same day and score all five goals was really good.

“We have a really big game on Wednesday night, so it couldn’t have been a better preparation for this game.

“We want dense and fast games, and we have a chance to collect points on Wednesday night.

“It’s a good opportunity for us to win maybe a position or two, and if we can do the trick on Wednesday, the game [at home to Renfrew] Saturday gives us a chance to consolidate, so we look forward to the next few days.

“The boys are playing with confidence and we are in turmoil.”
