SCOTTISH CUP :: BSC Taken Out By Talbot

Auchinleck Talbot 5-0 BSC Glasgow | William Hill Scottish Cup | Beechwood Stadium | 3rd October 2015

By Sam Jenkinson

BSC Glasgow exited the Scottish Cup after West Super League champions Auchinleck Talbot dominated Saturday’s replay. Two early goals in the opening five minutes set the tone on a difficult afternoon for Broomhill.

After last week’s stellar performance and 2-2 draw at Lochburn Park, BSC named an unchanged side with Aaron Connolly and Aidan Ferris starting up front. 

But it was the home side who came out the traps at pace. David Gillies got the opener in the first minute, a rebound falling to the striker who finished past Derick Moore. 

And it got worse for BSC before 5 minutes had past. Gillies played in Graham Wilson after a Bot counter and he made no mistake to put his side in the driver’s seat.

BSC did begin to gain a foothold in the game as it continued, with Gerard Traynor finding space out on the left multiple times. Unfortunately for Glasgow, referee Steven Reid awarded a penalty for Talbot after Arnault Bembo got the wrong side of Kier Milliken, and Graham Pope sent the ball into the bottom right corner to put the junior side three goals to the good.

Talbot made it four and booked their place in the second round ten minutes after the break. Milliken, who had just had a shot saved excellently by Moore, made no mistake at the second time of asking, putting the ball across the goal.

Talbot finished off proceedings after some extended pressure. Bryan Young saw his shot blocked on the line by Traynor before it was swung back in from the left and central midfielder Dwayne Hyslop headed home.

Craig Young spoke of his side’s performance after a tough day for BSC:
“They were by far and away the better side on the day, we didn’t compete and after we lost two early goals we were struggling. I don’t think the scoreline flatters them, to be perfectly honest, it could have been six or seven.”

Captain David Gray had similar views on the tie:
“We got what we deserved against a group of boys that worked hard, fought for each other and kept things simple, which is something we did last week but not today.”

“I don’t feel like Auchinleck are a team that should be that far ahead of us but when you make as many mistakes as we did today, teams will punish you.”

“They battled harder than us today, won their headers, defended properly, stayed within their capabilities and won the game professionally.”

Young looked ahead to the rest of the season in the Lowland League:
“It’s my job to get the players going again. I need to pick them up and try and get the good habits that they’ve had for most of my time here and try to get it going in the league.”
