First Team Debuts

Milestones
Eamonn Bannon scored his first goal for the Club.
Iain Phillip scored his first goal for the Club.

And a game reminiscent of the previous Saturday with Premier League goals easy to come by. Willie Pettigrew and Iain Phillip did the spadework with early goals and Eamonn Bannon provided the icing on the cake with the best of the three in the last ten minutes.
