With their Scottish Amateur Cup Fourth-Round game with Echt called off, St Mungo played out a very useful and winning friendly against Drumchapel Amateurs, writes Tom Scott. Murray gave Saints the lead against their Premier Division opponents midway through the first half with a neat finish, and the same player was unlucky with another effort,. which struck the post.
Drumchapel pulled level when a superb header flew past ‘keeper Robertson.
Substitute Newall put St Mungo back in front when he powered home a header from McGratton’s pinpoint cross.
The Drum piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser but they were denied when Gallagher’s long ball upfield allowed Tullis to race clear and make the final score 3-1.
Templeton Cup Blow: Templeton Albert crashed out of the Scottish Cup against a very good Hurlford Thistle, who led 2-0 at the interval.
A third goal followed on the resumption and although Albert reduced the leeway through substitute Taylor, Hurlford easily ran out 5-1 winners.
Significantly, Templeton goalkeeper Martin Lennox did his best to keep a respectable final scoreline and was named Man of the Match.
Meanwhile, Garrowhill Thistle reached the Fifth Round of the Scottish Cup after defeating Renfrew Town 3-2. Calton Athletic were held to a 1-1 home draw by New Cumnock.
