Coupar knocked out by Lun­carty

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE BACK PAGE -

Coupar An­gus were knocked out of the GA Cup by Perthshire ri­vals Lun­carty at the week­end.

It was the sec­ond week in a row the teams had faced off against each other fol­low­ing a 2-2 draw in the league.

But Lun­carty proved too strong at Fox­hall Park this time round to run out com­fort­able 6-1 win­ners. Mur­ray Irvine net­ted the Coupar goal.

Man­ager Lo­gan McConachie had no com­plaints about the re­sult and said: “Lun­carty started well but we gifted them goals by not pick­ing up sec­ond balls or track­ing run­ners.

“They played well though and de­served the vic­tory.

“We had eight play­ers miss­ing from last week and un­for­tu­nately our squad depth isn’t as plen­ti­ful as that of Lun­carty.

“And with a num­ber of ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers miss­ing we were fighting a los­ing bat­tle. We’ll look to right our wrongs this week­end com­ing.”

Coupar are back on North Di­vi­sion duty this week­end and travel to play For­far Al­bion, who are yet to record a win this sea­son. Kick-off is 2.30pm.

Blair Ber­ryp­ick­ers

This week’s Blair­gowrie JFC ber­ryp­ick­ers’ weigh-in num­bers were 6, 10, 13 and 16.

There were no win­ners, mean­ing the prize money next week will be £950.
