First Team Debuts


Slightly a more comfortable victory At Palmerston than the scoreline inay suggest due to the loss of those two late goals. Gary McSwegan was the Hat-trick Hero at Palmerston. To add to his two hat-tricks against CE Principat, taking his tally for the season to nine for the season. McSwegan won the game before teenager Steven Thompson came on to grab his second first team goal.
