Carnoustie are in sev­enth heaven

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

CARNOUSTIE are in sev­enth heaven af­ter their Su­per League clash against an un­der-strength Jean­field.The 7-0 win takes the Gowfers out of the bot­tom three.

Two Steven Cook goals put them in the driv­ing seat at half-time and the writ­ing was on the wall for Swifts when Ryan Dig­nan made it three early in the sec­ond half. Cook then com­pleted his hat-trick from a penalty and Dig­nan, Ewan Bug­gins and Jamie McCabe added an­other three to com­plete the rout.

De­spite get­ting their noses in front, For­far West End went down by the odd goal in three at home to Brox­burn and re­main rooted to the foot of the table.

Player/boss Daryl McKen­zie gave his side an early lead but Andy Mur­ray’s first-half dou­ble earned the vis­i­tors vic­tory.

Lochee United suf­fered their third de­feat in a row, this time against Lin­lith­gow in the third round of the East of Scot­land Cup.

Lin­lith­gow nosed ahead af­ter 10 min­utes through a Tommy Coyne penalty. An­other spot-kick, again con­verted by Coyne, re­sulted in Stephen McNally be­ing sent off.

Grant Law­son pulled one back in 54 min­utes but Rose hit back with Coyne com­plet­ing his hat-trick.

A Dougie Cameron penalty gave Lochee hope but be­fore they could think about an equaliser, Lin­lith­gow added a fourth from Ruari Ma­cLen­nan to seal the tie.
