As the Central Scottish AFL play out the 2019-2020 season, the latest instalment was a Top of the Table clash between Harestanes and St Patricks FP at Merkland Astro. Both sides went hell for leather under the floodlights to gain 3 valuable points, but in the end the teams had to settle with a draw. Best described as a game of two halves,  a rampant home side had the better of the first period and deserved their lead after some 35 minutes.

However, St Pat’s surged forward in the 2nd half and got a deserved equaliser in the 68th minute ,when McColl found the spot, when the ball fell kindly into his path inside the 18-yard box. Regardless of the result it was a good watch with all the combatants giving their best in what was a competitive and exciting encounter, which makes the recent decision of the Scottish Government & Sports Scotland even more disappointing.

The Hares stay on top with the luxury of more goals scored counting (goal diff the same) though the  visitors have a game in hand.
