Match Report :: Cambusnethan v BSC Glasgow | 29th July, 2014
Cambusnethan 0 - 5 BSC Glasgow | 29th July, 2014
Tuesday night at Dalziel Park in Motherwell provided BSC Glasgow with it's final opportunity to tweak the starting line up with Saturday's Lowland League opener against Edinburgh University looming large on the horizon.
Coach John Brogan named a strong starting eleven and they started quickly, immediately taking control of the midfield with Slane, Mclachlan, Wallace and Gebbie all looking strong.
BSC were dealt an early blow when centre back, Kevin Wiliiams limped off although Brogan was able to show his side's strength in depth by bringing on Connolly. This central defensive area has been strengthened further by the signing of 17 year old Matt Niven from the Broomhill u21 side. Even at this early stage it's clear that the club's well structured youth system could provide an excellent resource in terms of potential senior team players.
BSC were unable to break down a stubborn back line despite having the ball in the Cambusnethan net twice in the first half. Both efforts though, from McDougall and Wallace respectively, were flagged for offside.
After the break though, a more realistic scoreline quickly began to develop. Paul Slane, who had been causing havoc in the opposition defence with his electric turn of pace and close ball control, sped down the left flank and cut the ball back perfectly for Mcdougall to slam home.
BSC's second came from a well worked corner between Morgan and Wallace resulting in the left back whipping in a great ball for Mcdougall to double the advantage with a close range header.
The third followed soon after and from the moment Tony Wallace glided through the Cambusnethan backline to go one on one with the keeper and round him with ease before slotting home the result was never in any doubt.
Ally Morgan got his second assist of the night as his low cross was turned home cooly by Wallace for his second and BSC's fourth.
The icing was on the cake when Aiden Malone got the goal that his performance deserved as he dispossessed the Cambusnethan defence before slotting the ball low into the net.
The final score of 5-0 did not flatter BSC Glasgow in any way and spirits are sure to be high as the season starts for real this Saturday.
