First Team Debuts

Milestones

After only squeezing through on penalties in the last round against Stirling Albion, our luck ran out at Dingwall. Although we had the better chances and County keeper, Nicky Walker, was named Man of the Match, it was the Third Division side who advanced thanks to two goals in extra-time. Derek Adams fired in a free-kick on the stroke of halftime in extra-time and knocked in a rebound for the second in the final minute to complete one of the biggest upsets in our cup history.
