Match Report

The East of Scotland City Cup was lifted with a 5-2 victory over Lowland League Champions East Kilbride at the John Brysdon Arena at the Oriam.

The early stages were extremely competetive, with slack play at the back by City punished by the East Kilbride forward. Almost immediately City went up the park and equalised when Alex Harris leveled from Callum Crane’s cut back. The match changed with an outrageous challenge from East Kilbride’s Darren O’ Dea after 18 minutes which saw the experienced defender shown a straight red. Despite this, Kilby went ahead again, Woods scoring from a freekick just outside the penalty area.

City began to get on top with the extra man and Scott Shepherd levelled just before halftime, turning in from close range. The second half was pretty much one-way traffic, with City making the numerical advatage count. Two quick fire goals from Jonny Court put the game to bed, before arguably the pass of the match from skipper Josh Walker was smashed home by Alex Harris to put a shine on the result.

Always good to record a high scoring win and put silverware in the cabinet, but there’s no denying the red card had a bearing on the match. The sides meet again in only a few weeks in the BetFred Cup, when it will surely be a tighter affair.
