Kieran Rae netted a hat-trick as Troon Town came from 2-0 down early on against Beith Under-19s and finally emerge 5-3 winners on Thursday. Dylan Adams and Ewan Martin were also on target for Troon, who will now be forced onto the sidelines due to new Scottish Government restrictions.
Who can blame them for being frustrated after some excellent results, quality goals and an unbeaten pre-season programme to date, which started with a 7-1 win against Bobby’s Bar at Quarry Road Astro on September 20.
A week later, Troon defeated Dalry Tartan AFC 3-0, and if you love plenty goals in a match what about the 5-5 draw against Glencairn Thistle AFC earlier this month?
For the record, Town trailed 5-3 with two minutes remaining, but somehow managed a share of the friendly spoils!
