Coach-Manager Stuart Syme was thrilled to see the reaction from the Glasgow Elm Football Club as they crushed Craig Albert 4-0, writes Tom Scott.
Said Stuart “We had a rematch against them after they beat us 5-0 to a few weeks ago.”
“If you remember it was the game was had a striker in goals, and our CMs playing at CB.”
“Thankfully, for the rematch I had nearly a full squad to pick from.”
“First half started with a great tempo, both teams getting on and using the ball well.
“We had a few chances, but didn’t take them.”
“Craig Albert were unlucky to lose a couple of players to injury early on, but we had our own injury issue with a striker having to come off at about 25/30 mins, and his replacement Craig McConnel scored with near enough his first touch after Graeme Davidson hit the bar.”
“The play was firmly in our favour, we wasted a few chances, but Graeme Davidson scored just before the break, so we went into half- time two goals to the good.”
“A few changes at half- time saw us re-jig the midfield and keep pressing on.”
“Paul Keys scored our 3rd goal, topping an outstanding performance. He gave their defenders a torrid time all game.”
“The 3rd striker we put on had a handful of chances, but was caught offside. Thankfully, a few minutes later Shaun McNamee got his goal, which was deserved with the work he was putting in off the ball.”
“At 4-0 up, we had an injury and I had to come on. I contributed little apart from a tame how’d volley that the keeper collected comfortably. Ever player, to a man, was outstanding, but a special mention to Ross Cameron, who played at CB instead of CM and strolled the game.”
Goal scorers: Craig McConnel, Graeme Davidson, Paul Keys, Shaun McNamee.
