Beith vs Kilwinning WoS Cup 3rd Rnd - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson

Beith Juniors 1 Kilwinning Rangers 3

Beith: Strain, Ryan, Wilson, K MacDonald, Sheridan, S MacDonald, McKeown, Reid, McLean, Christie, Docherty Subs: McKenna, Donnelly, Kerr

Kilwinning: Stewart, Maitland, Fleeting, Kerr, McGowan, Quigley, Agnew, Anderson, Bradford, Lewis, Kemp. Subs: Fisher, McLaren, Boylan, Weir, Hunter

Buffs found success at Bellsdale for the second time this season dumping a lame Beith side out of the West Cup just as they did in the Scottish. The visitors thoroughly deserved the victory, dominating play throughout and have given themselves a decent opportunity to collect some silverware.
Neither keepers were really tested in opening exchanges but the threadbare hosts resources were further stretched when Gary Wilson limped off after only 10 minutes to be replaced by Sean McKenna forcing a reshuffle.
The visitors gradually gained the upper hand and they took the lead after 16 minutes when Kemp applied a good controlled finish from a tight angle at the back post after Buffs kept the pressure on from a corner that Beith couldn't clear. Beith were all over the place and Buffs missed a great opportunity to add another minutes later when Agnew robbed MacDonald in midfield, burst forward and looked set to score only for Docherty to get back and clear his shot off the line. Ben Lewis missed the target from a good position and Adam Strain made a fine block to deny Agnew to keep Beith in the game with Buffs pace and strength dominating proceedings. The visitors were also tight at the back and the only noteworthy effort from Beith in the first half was a McLean shot that Stewart spilled but they had no one else following up to take advantage.

Andy Reid had a decent effort for Beith just after the restart but his shot went the wrong side of the post and Buffs were soon back on top and Strain did well to stop a Lewis shot from a fine Agnew cut back. However Lewis was not to be denied and he made enough space to squeeze a shot into the bottom corner on the hour mark after a soft free kick delivery was headed down to him in a crowded box.
Beith never really looked like they had enough about them to get back into the game with Buffs solid back four offering few chances and when McLean did manage to wriggle clear he was denied a shot by a fine Kerr recovering tackle. Back to the other end and Strain made a great double save to deny Lewis another goal. Darren Christie's pace carved out two good opportunities for the home side but his inviting crosses found no takers before Buffs substitutes secured the victory with a third goal when Boylan robbed MacDonald dithering at the back and squared for Fisher to side foot home.
Beith got on the scoresheet before the end but it was little more than a consolation when McKenna headed home a Docherty corner.

Beith vs Dalry - Ayrsh Cup 2nd Rnd - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson

Beith Juniors 7 Dalry Thistle 0

Beith: Strain, McKeown, Wilson, K MacDonald, Donnelly, Kerr, S MacDonald, Frize, Reid, Christie, Docherty. Subs: McKenna, McLean, Sheridan

Dalry: Hewitt, Halliday, Walsh, Tolland, Hercus, Jas Boyle, Jam Boyle, Campbell, Archdeacon, Tennant, Friel. Subs: Stevenson, Lockhart, Hood, Loughlin, Crerand

Beith recovered from their defeat by Hurlford on the Monday night in their last league game to keep their cup interest alive on Wednesday with a comfortable win over neighbours Dalry. The home side were able to field a stronger side and after a slow start they kept up the pressure into the second half to overcome Dalry's spirited first half resistance.
The visitors had the first shot at goal after 4 minutes with a decent effort from Fraser Campbell that Strain watched cautiously as it just cleared the bar. Beith gradually took control with Christie and Frize making direct runs forward opening up the Dalry defence. Keeper Hewitt was busy, but up to the task, making good stops from Reid, Docherty and Christie. Beith had the ball in the net in the 24th minute but a strange flag from the assistant saw it ruled out. Dalry were just holding out now and struggling to get out of their own half and their resistance finally broke in the 37th minute when defender David Tolland could only help a driven Docherty cross past his own keeper. Beith kept up the pressure and Andy Reid increased their lead from the penalty spot after Tolland had pulled back Darren Christie as he sped past him into the box.
Dalry showed some further defiance at start of the second half and Strain had to get down smartly to turn a Mark Archdeacon shot past the post before play again swung towards keeper Hewitt. Before long Beith effectively killed the contest with a third goal when a quick move involving just on sub Kenny McLean and Darren Christie found Nicky Docherty at the back post to shoot home. Dalry created few chances over the match and couldn't take advantage when a decent one came Tennant's way when he delayed his shot when through on Strain allowing the keeper to block his effort.
By contrast Beith were deadly at the other end and Kenny McLean fired in the pick of the bunch firing a brilliant free kick from around 23 yards into the top corner giving Hewitt no chance. Dalry were now seriously struggling to stem the tide and sub McKenna headed a Docherty cross home in 75 minutes. Number six followed a few minutes later when Paul Frize tricked his way through the defence and finished into the bottom corner. Hewitt made fine stops to deny McLean and Donnelly before Stephen McKeown scored a rare goal to make it seven finishing off a fine move involving some sharp passes in the last minute.

Beith Juniors vs Hurlford United - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson
Beith Juniors 1 Hurlford 4

Beith: Strain, Ryan, Wilson, Donnelly, Sheridan, S MacDonald, Bradley, Storrie, McKenna, Reid, Docherty. subs: Kerr, McLean, McKeown, Convery

Hurlford: A Brown, McGregor, Byrne, G Mitchell, C Robertson, McClure, McKenzie, D Mitchell, Kean, R Robertson, Donnelly. Subs: Chisholm, Watt, Cochrane, M Brown, O'Neill

In their last meaningless league fixture, a makeshift Beith side provided no match for a strong still title chasing Hurlford side. The visitors took an early lead with a bizarre goal when Chris Robertson seemed to over hit an indirect free kick on the halfway line but it caused panic for the Adam Strain as it sailed over his head, hit the crossbar then went in off the despairing keeper. Beith tried to respond and could have equalised through McKenna and Storrie before Hurlford broke upfield quickly in numbers where McClure squared for Robertson to slam the ball home.
Donnelly added another, albeit from a clear offside position, to really kill any possible contest before Andy Reid pulled one back from the spot after McKenna was bundled over in the box. Hurlford could have scored more from a number of chances but they eventually found the net again 5 minutes into the second half when Gary Mitchell powered home a free header from a corner. Mostly poor finishing from dominant Hurlford saw the scoreline stay the same through to the close on bitterly cold evening to watch football.

Largs Thistle 2 Beith Juniors 3 Ayrshire Cup 1st Rnd - Match Report By Robbie Sanderson

Largs Thistle 2 Beith Juniors 3

Largs: Lundy, Fisher, Murray, Kinniburgh, Gilbride, Thomson, Muir, Lindsay, Pierce, Frizzell, McClure. Subs: Jamieson, Little, McDonald, Marks

Beith: Strain, Kerr, Wilson, K MacDonald, Sheridan, McKeown, Ryan, Frize, McKenna, Reid, Docherty. Subs: Donnelly, S MacDonald, Bradley, Convery

Both sides resources were stretched for this encounter with the season in the silly stage with fixtures coming thick and fast for most. There was little between the sides in the opening exchanges with Largs forcing a few corners without troubling the keeper while Beith had a few chances with Nicky Docherty mistiming his header from a corner in a good position and Paul Frize forcing Lundy to save and hooking another shot wide as he got forward from midfield.
However good chances remained thin on the ground until the Beith defence offered Alan Frizzell the opportunity to have a go when he collected a ball thrown forward in the 28th minute. Sheridan and MacDonald both backed off and allowed the forward time to see that Strain was a yard or two off his line and he duly sent a fine measured shot over his head to put his side ahead.
Beith were struggling to find any real rhythm until Frize again showed willingness to attack from midfield and he levelled the score when he burst through into the box to shoot into the bottom corner. The visitors were in generous mood however and before half time they gifted their hosts another when Sean Pierce gratefully latched onto a woefully short headed pass back from Kevin MacDonald to his keeper and rounded the stranded goalie to score.
Despite the help from their opponents, Largs deserved their interval lead and Beith had to try to  change things so they introduced Joe Bradley for the restart clearly hoping his ball skill would have an impact. The change did make a difference but Largs willing forwards continued to give the visitors defence a difficult afternoon and Adam Strain did well to block a Frizzell shot as he bore in on goal. Largs had another opportunity when Gilbride got on the end of a Thomson free kick delivery but missed the target with his header.
Beith tried to respond and had the ball in the net on the hour after Lundy blocked at Ryan's feet and the loose ball was fired home only for the ref to debatably rule for a foul. At the other end Pierce couldn't have gone closer to increasing the home side's lead when he showed great control on the edge of the box to make enough space to fire in a shot that beat Strain but hit the upright and spun clear. There was little between the sides at all before fortunes turned for Beith when Gilbride handled a McKenna pass in the box allowing Andy Reid to level the score confidently from the spot. Largs had put a lot of effort into the contest but they eventually succumbed with only 5 minutes remaining when Paul Frixze stole possession and advanced to throw in a great cross for Andy Reid to finish smartly with some aplomb from 7 yards.
Beith saw out the closing minutes without incident to move into the next round with their narrow victory but they will almost certainly have to improve on this performance to extend their season further. The hosts did not look like a side that should be in the league mire and their all round play and effort suggests they have enough about them to escape the relegation zone.

Beith Juniors v Kilbirnie Ladeside - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson

Beith Juniors 0 Kilbirnie Ladeside 0

Beith: Strain, Ryan. Wilson, K MacDonald, Sheridan, McKeown, Christie, Frize, McLean, McKenna, Docherty. Subs: Bradley, McShane, Reid

Kilbirnie: Fahey, McLean, Malone, Gray, Gair, Marriot, Borris, McGuinness, Forde, Meechan, Boyd. Subs: Coleman, Barr. McCloskey, McAnespie, Kelly

Transcending the obvious local rivalry this derby was all about Kilbirnie chasing vital points to ensure their top league status with games steadily running out. Hosts Beith had already achieved that target and they started the game well and Kenny McLean had two great early opportunities to put his side ahead but Fahey made crucial stops turning both his efforts behind for corners.

Kilbirnie were up against a strong wind but Boyd caused problems for the home defence when they got the ball forward and he forced Strain into a double block. However it was the home side who continued to press but the Ladeside defence stuck to their task despite Beith winning a number of corners.

Darren Christie went close with a free kick that swung just wide of the post on the half hour before Kilbirnie broke to the other end forcing Ryan to make a brilliantly timed tackle in the box to deny Boyd. Kilbirnie looked slightly more dangerous as half time approached with McLean getting forward at any opportunity and he provided a pass for Borris to bring out a good save from Strain.

The match spoiling wind actually increased after the interval and Beith now had the task of defending against it. Kilbirnie saw a lot of the ball but clear chances were hard to come by and Strain continued to look confident in goals making a fine save to turn a Forde shot behind. Like the first half corners caused problems but Beith managed to clear their lines. Beith were now finding little going forward and they replaced ineffective striker McKenna with Joe Bradley in an effort to find something. However the visitors continued to control the midfield and Strain was in action again to get down well to stop a Forde free kick.

Beith were now under real pressure as time ticked on and man of the match Beith keeper Adam Strain made great stops to deny Borris and Forde in quick succession. The hosts had failed to test Kilbirnie at all in the second half but they missed a great chance to pinch the points when Bradley sent Nicky Docherty through but with only Fahey to beat he screwed his shot wide of the post.

Frustrated Kilbirnie created another few half chances in time added on but again failed to get the ball past the outstanding Strain.

Clydebank v Beith - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson

Clydebank 0 Beith Juniors 2

Clydebank: Hamilton, Verlaque, Paterson, Walker, Mort, MCCann, Gold, Barclay, Carcary, Davidson, Shelvey. Subs: Harvie, Cumming, McNab, Irvine, Campbell

Beith: Strain, Ryan, Wilson, K MacDonald, Sheridan, McKeown, Christie, Frize, McLean, McKenna, Docherty. Subs: Reid, S MacDonald, Bradley, McShane, Convery

With the season in the end zone Beith produced a crucial performance to secure points to finally secure their top division status from a tough campaign following promotion. Hosts Clydebank had a mountain to climb to get off the bottom slot and they never really looked like getting anything from this encounter and their fate now looks sealed.


Beith started well in front of a healthy crowd at Holm Park enjoying some good early possession but received a set back when defender Gary Wilson collected a soft yellow card for his first challenge on the half way line. Carcary squeezed in a shot for the hosts but Adam Strain saved comfortably. Beith continued to look the livelier of the sides and they grabbed a crucial lead in the 25th minute when Zander Ryan found the bottom corner from a well taken free kick after Nicky Docherty had been fouled 20 yards out.


Somewhat surprisingly Clydebank offered little response and McKenna and McLean had efforts blocked as Beith continued to press. The home side had a brief flurry before the interval but Shelvey and Davidson had shots blocked. Bankie's sub Harvie almost made an immediate impression after the restart when he fired in a shot forcing Strain into action to touch his effort over the bar as the home side continued to probe via Davidson and Shelvey without testing the Beith keeper.


Quality never came near to matching effort and the scrappy contest continued. Clydebank managed to create further openings with Beith again struggling in midfield but Strain saved a Shelvey shot and Paterson screwed a shot wide from Bankie's best chance in the box. However Beith sub Andy Reid did make the desired impact after 69 minutes when he picked up a loose ball in midfield and advanced to fire in a shot that beat hapless Bankie's Keeper Hamilton for the second time.


The home side's heads visibly dropped at this point and Kenny McLean and Darren Christie kept them on the back foot with their continued effort. Beith could have increased their lead before the end but for decent stops from Hamilton and good fortune for the home side when Andy Reid got a toe to a great Christie cross only for the ball to spin into the keepers arms when a goal looked certain.


After the crucial second goal Beith kept a firm grip on proceedings and saw out time without mishap. Best for Beith in an important win were McLean, Sheridan, Docherty and injury dogged midfielder McKeown.

Arthurlie v Beith - Match Report by Robbie Sanderson

Arthurlie 0 Beith Juniors 0

Arthurlie: White, McGlinchey, Palmer, Devlin, Green, Blakey, McTernan, McGregor, Smith, Stewart, MacPherson. Subs: Burns, Rafferty, Lyden, McArdle, Mailey

Beith: Strain, Ryan, Docherty, K MacDonald, McShane, McGowan, Christie, Frize, McLean, Reid, Bradley. Subs: S MacDonald, McKenna, Sheridan, Wilson, Donnelly

Both sides arrived at this fixture with league safety points very much the target with the season now in the nitty gritty zone. A closely fought match was expected and that is what the goodly crowd got on a fine sunny day.

There was little to note in the opening exchanges with Beith keeper Strain comfortably saving a weak MacPherson header from a driven cross with the sides mainly scrapping away in midfield. Beith had a setback after 19 minutes when David McGowan had to be replaced by Stuart MacDonald following a meaty challenge. The bobbly playing surface wasn't helping either side and, a scrappy contest set in.

Beith were competing well against a big physical home side who were happy to take the route one approach. Lie defenders McGlinchey and ex Beith Palmer were yellow carded for robust challenges with the latter perhaps fortunate to stay on the park when he looked the last man when he intentionally pulled down Darren Christie as he broke clear.

The home side were slightly the better towards half time and posed a threat pushing big men up for set pieces but the sides went in for the interval having given plenty of effort without really testing the keepers.

The home side opened the second half with a surge and Nicky Docherty made a great challenge in the box following pressure from a couple of corners. Play then swung to the other end where Blakey was yellow carded for late challenge on Kenny McLean. Darren Christie was giving the home defence a few problems and he went close to opening the scoring when he got in at the back post to head a fine Ryan cross a foot wide. Andy Reid collected a yellow for a challenge before Christie had another good chance when he burst through on the angle but couldn't finish with White blocking a weak shot.

Lie defender Devlin received a yellow card for pulling back Andy Reid as he broke forward as play became increasingly nervy with the first goal looking the winner. The hosts were taking no prisoners in challenges but bizarrely it was Beith who found themselves reduced to 10 men in the 71st minute when referee Graham produced a second yellow for what was only Andy Reid's second real tackle in the match. Strangely the home side produced nothing to up the ante and Paul Frize and Stuart MacDonald fought manfully in midfield to break up possession. Beith skipper Marc McShane had to leave the fray, failing to recover from a head knock following a brave challenge in the Beith box as the game drew to a close.

In the end a point apiece towards Super League safety was accepted by the sides. Beith will undoubtedly be buoyed, not only by a rare clean sheet, but also by the efforts shown by their players who on the day couldn't really have given any more effort to the cause.

Beith Juniors v Petershill 14 th March 15 Match report by Robbie Sanderson

Beith Juniors 3 Petershill 4   

Beith: Strain, Sheridan, Docherty, K MacDonald, McShane, S MacDonald, Christie, Frize, McLean, Reid, McGowan. Subs: Donnelly, Ryan, McKenna, Wilson, Kerr

Petershill: McNeill, Girvan, Hadden, McCabe, Chisholm, Stevenson, Cusack, Elliot, Daly, Daw, Burke. Subs: Kennedy, Sally, McGladrigan, Clark, McCleary

Beith managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in this one against their bogey team, who played the last 18 minutes with ten men to come from behind to win the points. As Beith fight for crucial points, the goals against column in the league table tells it all, highlighting the Bellsdale side's long established defensive failings.

The hosts started well playing down the slope with Nicky Docherty prominent, attacking down the left wing. The youngster headed narrowly over from a McGowan corner, tee'd up Kenny McLean for a shot that just cleared the bar and had a decent shot saved by keeper McNeill. Petershill were having to defend in numbers and Chisholm was eventually booked after committing several rash tackles and from the free kick awarded McNeill reacted well to stop John Sheridan's header.

However all the pressure counted for nothing when the visitors went in front from their first real attack when Beith failed to properly clear a ball into the box allowing Daly to head on to unmarked Keiran Daw and he had time to take aim and shoot home from 7 yards. The setback clearly rocked Beith and any presence they had in midfield disappeared and Peasy's should have increased their lead when Burke picked out on loan from Clyde striker Michael Daly with a fine cross but he somehow missed the target with a free header. Peasy forwards Daly, Daw and Burke were now looking a class act and Daly had a goal bound shot blocked in a melee in the Beith box from a corner.

As was the case in the first goal, Beith drew back level against the run of play in the 28th minute when Kenny McLean picked up possession outside the box and unleashed a brilliant shot that gave the keeper no chance as it found the top corner. Beith looked potent in attack and McNeill had to be sharp to stop a Christie effort from 25 yards but play soon swung again to the other end where Girvan seemed to have ages to put in a cross behind the Beith defence for Daly to turn the ball home at the back post.

This was a genuine end to end contest and Beith really should have gone in for the break at least level but from pin point Andy Reid crosses, first Darren Christie headed wide and then Nicky Docherty hit the post with another header with only the keeper to beat. Beith missed another gilt edged chance just before half time when Kenny McLean sent Darren Christie through  one on one but he dallied in the box and allowed McNeill time to make a crucial block with his legs.

Beith were quick out of the traps after the interval and a fine move with McLean and Reid forced a corner where McShane headed narrowly over. The hosts kept the pressure on and levelled when Darren Christie pounced to shoot into the bottom corner from 9 yards after Peasy's failed to clear a free kick into the box. The game was really turned on its head a minute later when Christie gave Beith the lead, calmly making space to shoot home from 12 yards after a McLean cross caused panic.

The stunned visitors took some time to regain their composure but they duly did helped by substitutions that seemed to contribute to them sitting very deep. Petershill continued to press and Burke scorned a great opportunity, missing the target with a free header and Daly had a shot blocked when he looked set to score after good skill from Daw.

There was controversy in the 72nd minute when Hadden had the ball in the net before the officials combined to disallow 'the goal'. Visiting full back Graham Girvan was then sent off after receiving a second yellow for over zealously disputing the decision.

Despite the numerical disadvantage Peasy's kept up the pressure and Adam Strain pulled off a fine save at Hadden's feet in the box. At the other end Paul Frize went close when he shot across the face of goal on the turn.

The battling visitors continued to dominate midfield with Beith clinging on desperately and it was no surprise when they pulled level with 9 minutes remaining when Daly out jumped the home defence to send in a powerful header that found the net despite Strain getting a glove to it. Beith were now desperately holding on for a point but this time Peasy's got the advantage from a refereeing decision from a soft penalty when Keiran Daw tumbled in the box. Daw duly made no mistake from the spot to give his side the lead with only 5 minutes to go. Beith pushed on Sean McKenna in a last throw and he had a good chance to salvage a point when he burst through only for the Peasy goalie made a fine block to deny him. To round off the disappointment Beith had John Sheridan sent off in the last minute after he collected a second yellow card.

Hurlford United vs Beith Juniors 07/03/15 - Match report by Robbie Sanderson

Hurlford 2 Beith Juniors 0

Hurlford: Brown, Cameron, Byrne, G Mitchell, C Robertson, D Mitchell, McKenzie, Wilson, Kean, R Robertson, Chisholm. Subs: Watt, Millar, McGregor, Brown, Dempster

Beith: Strain, McShane, Docherty, Donnelly, McShane, S MacDonald, Bradley, Reid, Christie, McLean, McGowan. Subs: Ryan, Frize, Wilson, Kerr

The Scottish weather tried its best to spoil this contest but both sides also tried their best to give the spectators their money's worth, after the game got the go ahead following a morning inspection. High flying Hurlford eventually secured the points but Beith were no also-rans, battling all the way with a tremendous effort playing into a gale force wind in the first half.
As expected the Scottish Cup holders saw most of the ball with the assistance of the elements but it was the 10th minute before Beith keeper Adam Strain was tested when McKenzie tumbled just outside the box allowing Robertson to fire in a free kick that the goalie did well to beat away.
Beith were up for the challenge and David Donnelly put in a great challenge to halt a Daniel Mitchell surging run. The visitors tried to work the ball forward at any opportunity and Darren Christie made a good run and delivered a dangerous cross that was turned behind for a corner. Play continued to flow mainly towards the visitors end and the hosts had the ball in the net but it was rightly ruled out as the last touch came from a player standing in an offside position. The first moment of any controversy arrived after 20 minutes when Beith had a good penalty shout waved away when Mitchell appeared to bundle McLean down in a challenge from behind in the box.
Hurlford continued to have the lion’s share of possession but found clear chances hard to come by as Beith worked hard to protect their goal. Adam Strain did his job well when called upon, turning a Byrne shot behind and getting down well to an on target Kean effort. Despite being up against it for most of the half, Beith had a great chance to take the lead a few minutes before the interval when Darren Christie burst forward and his pace got him one on one with Ford keeper Brown but he couldn't apply the finish and his tame shot was blocked by the keeper and he then scrambled back to collect the ball as it spun agonisingly slowly towards the line.
Christie continued to trouble the home defence after the restart forcing Brown to make an early save. Hurlford were clearly not going to allow Beith to dominate and they pushed up as much as possible to compete strongly in midfield. The wind also noticeably dropped which also helped the home side's cause. Darren Christie's hard work created another good opportunity for Beith but again his finish was not his best and Brown again blocked his effort and Bradley's follow up. The visitors were then cruelly punished as Hurlford swept upfield to earn a penalty when Robertson went down in the box under pressure from McShane, very similarly to the incident in the first half when Beith's appeal was turned down. Stewart Kean made no mistake from the spot.
The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Beith and Hurlford missed a good opportunity a few minutes later when Beith were caught out with a high ball into the box and Mitchell and Robertson seemed to put each other off with the latter heading over. The visitors battled away but essentially Hurlford had a good grip on proceedings now and they tied up the points with 3 minutes remaining from a free kick into the box. Kean was unlucky not to score with a fine header that hit the post but Paul McKenzie reacted quickly to pounce and slam home the rebound.
With their battle lost Beith then proceeded to lose the plot with their discipline in the remaining few minutes with first Charlie Hobbs being sent from the technical area following a spat with the assistant with Joe Bradley following suit a minute later collecting a red card for, one can only assume, saying something less than complimentary to the referee.

Beith Juniors v Largs Thistle WoS Cup 2nd rnd 28/2/15 - Match report by Robbie Sanderson

Beith Juniors 4 Largs Thistle 0

Beith: Strain, Donnelly, Docherty, S MacDonald, McShane, McGowan, Christie, Frize, McLean, Reid, Bradley. Subs: McKenna, Ryan, Wilson, Hobbs, Kerr

Largs: Lundy, Fisher, Keogh, Slaven, Little, Jamieson, Thompson, Fleming, Lindsay, Muir, Frizzel. Subs: Pierce, McDonald, McClure, Marks, Weir

Injury problems saw Beith field a changed side following good recent league results but they were still too strong for the visiting Largs side in this West tie. Largs competed well throughout and never really got a break in front of goal while the home side took their chances with 2 goals in each half securing the win.

The hosts opened strongly playing down the slope and created some good openings. Christie curled a free kick just wide before Donnelly and McGowan blasted shots over the bar from corners. Largs gradually worked their way into the match and almost opened the scoring when Fisher picked up a loose ball outside the box and sent in a swerving shot that beat Strain but crashed off the crossbar.

In an open game, play was now swinging from end to end and from a great Christie run Kenny McLean looked a cert to score but fired his shot over and would be relieved to see a late offside flag. At the other end a defensive tangle let Frizzel advance unchallenged on Strain but the keeper rescued his side with a fine block.

Beith looked the more likely to score and they got themselves ahead after 26 minutes when a clever Frize pass sent David McGowan clear and he shot home from an acute angle after being forced wide by ex Beith keeper Lundy. Largs tried to respond and went close with Strain making a good save to touch a Keogh shot over the bar.

Largs were forced into a change when Little hobbled off injured and rejigged their side with Marks replacing. As half time approached Beith punished the visitors for sloppy play in midfield when McGowan picked up the ball and fed Kenny McLean for the striker to waste no time before finding the bottom corner with a shot from 20 yards that Lundy got a hand to but couldn't keep out.

Largs started positively after the break but couldn't create clear chances and the game became increasingly scrappy as weather conditions deteriorated. Again Beith looked the more likely to score and a minute after Lundy had made a good save from Christie the Largs defence switched off and allowed McLean time to cross for David McGowan to knock home his second and Beith's third goal to all but seal the victory.  With the Largs heads down Beith soon added another when Kenny McLean bagged his second coolly drawing Lundy to slide the ball past him after being sent through.

With the contest finished Largs made two substitutions and Beith used all three in a move that back fired somewhat when Sean McKenna had to limp off injured after only 6 minutes on the field and left Beith to play out the last 18 minutes a man down. However Largs had little left in the tank to do any damage and their frustration boiled over 3 minutes from the end when sub McClure collected a red card for a reckless challenge.

Glenafton Athletic v Beith Juniors Match report by Robbie Sanderson

Glenafton Athletic 2 Beith Juniors 2

Glenafton: McGarrity, Menzies, Cairns, McGeoghan, McChesney, Kernon, Orsi, Hay, Kinney, Connoly, McGill. Subs: Wardrope, Meikle, McGuffie, Thomson, Buchanan

Beith: Strain, Donnelly, Docherty, K MacDonald, McShane, McKeown, Christie, Frize, McKenna, Reid, McGowan. Subs: McLean, Bradley, S MacDonald, Sheridan, Ryan

Beith showed their battling spirit to fight back from two goals behind to secure another valuable point to get them another step closer to the all important safety point in the league.
One change was made to the starting line up from last week's away win with Sean McKenna replacing Kenny McLean up front as his introduction paid dividends in last week's win at Shotts.

Beith started well winning several corners but couldn't make them count with Donnelly shooting over and McShane heading a good opportunity at the keeper. Glen's hadn't greatly threatened but found themselves ahead in the 14th minute in bizarre circumstances. There looked no danger with Nicky Docherty set to clear comfortably from his own box but seemed to miscue and drove the ball against Glens Darren McGill, who knew little about it, and the ball spun back past helpless keeper Strain.

The home side looked to build on their good fortune and began to get the better of the midfield contest and they missed a good chance to increase their lead when Connoly picked up an Orsi pass in the box and shot wide. The only noteworthy effort from Beith in this spell was a decent effort from a free kick by Andy Reid that just curled over the top. The referee also started to build what, by the end, would be a lengthy list of bookings for minor offences in a match that could never be seen as dirty.

Glen's continued to look the likelier to add to their lead and Adam Strain made a good save to turn a McGill shot over before Beith had a real let off when Kernon jinked forward into the box only to shoot past with just Strain to beat. Beith rallied slightly before the interval winning a couple of corners but failed to trouble the Glens keeper.

The visitors then found themselves two behind minutes after the restart when Glens pressure told with Kinney muscled in to head a corner past Strain. Beith continued to look vulnerable for another spell but gradually hauled themselves back into the match with Glens looking suspect from cross balls but Docherty scorned a good chance with a weak header and McGarrity did well to beat away a McShane header from a McGowan cross.

Beith persevered however and deservedly reduced the deficit on the hour mark when Andy Reid followed up to shoot home after McGarrity managed to parry a McGowan shot. Beith were now suddenly chasing an equaliser in a match that looked beyond them and Cairns did well to block a McGowan shot as Beith pressed.

The visitors made attacking changes with Joe Bradley and Kenny McLean replacing Donnelly and the fairly ineffective McKenna. There was more controversy again at the other end when the referee adjudged that Adam Strain had picked up a pass back and awarded a free kick inside the box. With the whole Beith side on the line, the free kick was blocked before Orsi smashed the loose ball off the base of the post.

Beith were really going all out for an equaliser and Paul Frize went close with two efforts as the home side clung on. The pressure eventually told with 5 minutes remaining with a McGowan delivery causing danger in the Glens box the ball was only cleared to Darren Christie who steered a fine left foot shot high past McGarrity.

The action was far from over with Cairns blocking a McLean shot in the last minute of regulation time. Injury time produced more excitement at both ends with the home side disappointed that the referee waved away a penalty claim when Adam Strain and Glens sub McGuffie came together with the ball running inches past the post.

This result could prove to be extremely valuable for Beith as it moves them onto 22 points after being stuck on 19 for what seems an eternity. They fully deserved their victory at Hannah Park with a determined performance where they kept their cool after going behind in the first half.
Early play produced nothing of note as the sides sparred in the middle of the park. Beith eventually started to ask some questions with Darren Christie looking confident and forcing a few corners. Another direct Christie run almost gave his side the lead in the 22nd minute but his shot was blocked and Paul Frize's effort from the rebound spun off the keepers legs and over the bar. Resulting corners were again well defended by the home side.
The visitors looked comfortable but Shotts forced a corner of their own and kept the pressure on forcing a poor clearance which fell to Donnelly lurking on the edge of the box and his shot found the net past a possibly unsighted Strain.
Beith continued to have most of the ball but clear chances on the big pitch proved elusive with the home side now having something to defend. Andy Reid made some room for himself to get in a shot that went a yard wide but that and another couple of corners that came to nothing saw Beith go in for the break, against the run of play, a goal behind.
The visitors picked up where they left off after the restart, pinning their host into their own half from the off but the pressure including a number of corners proved fruitless. Beith threw caution to the wind and quickly replaced defender Donnelly with Joe Bradley to add to the attacking threat. Minutes later the sub combined up the right wing with Darren Christie to set up arriving Paul Frize who shot home from 12 yards to square the contest. Sean McKenna then replaced Kenny McLean to put more pressure on his his former employers and it told again a few minutes later when Darren Christie curled in a great right foot shot from the left corner of the box following good work by McGowan.
As the clock advanced Beith's advantage suddenly looked fragile and Last sub Stuart MacDonald made a great block in the box to stop a McCrum shot as the home side went for broke. At the other end McKenna forced Whyte to make a good save. The last 5 minutes had Beith calling all hands to the pumps to defend their slender lead but they prevailed to secure the points.
This was a big win for Beith after a month long lay off and all personnel deserve credit for their efforts with perhaps a special mention for Marc McShane who led the side by example giving his all throughout.

Troon Juniors v Beith Juniors - Match Report from Robbie Sanderson

Troon Juniors 2 Beith Juniors 0

Troon: Johnston, Ure, McGowan, Keenan, Collins, Chatham, Harvey, Wilson, Reilly, Walker, Moore. Subs: Cairns, Gillies, McCann, Paterson, Wylie
Beith: Strain, Donnelly, Wilson, K McDonald, McShane, McKeown, Bradley, Frize, Christie, McLean, Reid. Subs: McKay, McKenna, Kerr, S McDonald, McGowan

Beith will still be trying to figure out how they managed to leave Portland Park pointless when they dominated this match so much. This latest defeat now has them potentially dropping right into the bottom half dogfight if they fail to halt the recent poor run. Conversely the hosts belief that they can climb up the table will surely now grow.

The visitors opened slightly the better but Andy Reid failed to hit the target from a free kick that looked perfect for him just outside the box after Paul Frize was bundled over. However Troon gradually got into the match but a half chance for Wilson was comfortably taken by Strain and a Walker header from a corner went well over.

Reid had another decent chance for Beith when Troon got in at tangle at the back but Johnston managed to block with his legs and McLean's lob from the rebound went a yard wide. Beith were enjoying plenty of possession and Ure popped up on the line to save the bacon when he cleared a Christie shot after a fine run from Joe Bradley created the chance. Beith's good start was harshly punished in the 31st minute when Troon went ahead with a large slice of good fortune when a clearing tackle fell kindly to Moore and from an acute angle his shot spun off Gary Wilson and looped perfectly over the helpless keeper.

Beith tried to put the setback behind them and picked up play again but luck wasn't with them when keeper Johnston missed a Beith corner and the ball hit Marc McShane and fell the wrong side of the post.

Beith started well after the interval but the Troon defence remained solid and corners came and went without troubling the keeper. Troon substitute McCann forced Strain to make a save from a header in a rare attack and they were somewhat fortunate again when Chatham only collected a yellow card for a terrible challenge.

Chances continued to fall to Andy Reid but the Beith striker couldn't find the target as Beith dominated, with the home side struggling to get out of their own half as they defended their slender lead. Beith's efforts became increasingly frantic as time wore on and they got caught on the break with 3 minutes remaining when indecision at the back allowed Moore to get to the bye line and square for Wilson to stab the ball home to cruelly kill the contest.

Beith Juniors v Auchinleck Talbot - Match Report from Robbie Sanderson

BEITH JUNIORS 0 AUCHINLECK TALBOT 2

Beith: Strain, Kerr, Wilson, K McDonald, McShane, McKeown, McGowan, Frize, McKenna, Christie, Reid. Subs: Bradley, S McDonald, McKay, Donnelly, McLean

Auchinleck: Leishman, Lyle, Pope, Park, McGoldrick, Latta, Young, McCracken, Milliken, Wilson, Hyslop. Subs: Shankland, Gormley, Spence, Boyd, Levany

This was another good day for Talbot who comfortably picked up another 3 points to narrow the gap on Irvine Meadow who lost their unbeaten league record with a home defeat.


Beith created an early scoring opportunity when a Paul Frize pass found Sean McKenna in a good position in the box but he couldn't get much on his shot and Leishman turned his effort past the post. Two corners came and went for the home side before Talbot began to dictate playing down the slope with Latta scorning a real chance in front of goal when he shot wide from a Pope cut back. Beith were struggling to clear their lines and pressure duly told in the 13th minute when the visitors knocked the ball about with ease to make an opening for Gordon Pope to shoot past Strain from 7 yards. Beith were all over the place now and Milliken looked set to add another when clean through on Strain but his shot hit the post and was scrambled away for a corner.
One way traffic continued to flow towards the Beith keeper and the home side contributed to their malaise by often giving the ball away cheaply with some poor passing. Steg McKeown was battling away manfully in midfield and he was involved in a good flowing move that won Beith a corner on the half hour and he shot a yard over when the ball fell to him just outside the box. Busy Talbot strikers Wilson and Milliken continued to cause no end of problems for Beith and a combination of good goalkeeping from Strain, luck and poor finishing allowed the hosts to somehow get in for the interval technically still in the game.

Like the first half they started the second period well with McKenna whipping in a shot that forced Leishman into a save and minutes later a good move found Andy Reid free in the box but he shot tamely straight to the keeper. Similarly Talbot quickly resumed their domination with Beith again struggling to cope with their quality and movement. Beith made personnel changes but this had no real impact with the visitors first to virtually everything before sub Bradley gave them the opportunity to increase their lead when he lost possession then put in a frustrated clumsy challenge in the box to let referee Mr Napier award a penalty. Wilson made no mistake with the spot kick to virtually end the contest. Beith stuck to their task for the remainder but apart from a McKay shot that forced a save from Leishman the visitors coasted through with Latta missing 'a sitter' in front of goal before the end.

This was a hard day at the office for Beith but their more meaningful matches will almost certainly be against sides who won't have anywhere near the quality of Talbot who look strong candidates to retain their title. Best efforts for the Beith cause on the day were battlers McShane and McKeown who gave their all throughout.
