EK This­tle Ams..5 Dysart Ams ........ 1

East Kil­bride This­tle Am­a­teurs came from be­hind to thrash Dysart AFC in the third round of Scot­tish Cup on Satur­day.

With the senior team hav­ing a free week­end, the spot­light was on the Am­a­teur squad and they did not dis­ap­point at Ballerup as they se­cured a place in the fourth round for the first time in their short his­tory.

Dysart took an early lead af­ter a free kick was floated into the back post and the at­tacker nod­ded home.

And 10 min­utes later This­tle had their keeper to thank as Con­nolly pulled off a stun­ning save with the ball head­ing for the top cor­ner.

How­ever, it was all This­tle af­ter that as they dom­i­nated pos­ses­sion and in the sec­ond half they got their re­ward.

Two early goals from Thomas Tracey set­tled This­tle’s nerves and they be­gan to con­trol the game with some slick pass­ing, great move­ment and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

A Jor­dan Con­nor brace and a slick fin­ish from David Wil­son buried Dysart and This­tle go march­ing into the fourth round, the best they have achieved since form­ing three years ago.

This­tle are cur­rently sit­ting mid-ta­ble in the Strath­clyde Satur­day Morn­ing League and this week­end they take on Ben­gal Lancers at the Show­park.

EK line-up: Con­nolly, McGlone, Sloan, Camp­bell, Dolan, Wil­son, Brown, Con­nor, Oates, Tracey, Carr.

Subs: McSherry, McSherry, Irvine, Liv­ing­stone, Smith.
