Ten-man Glen­cairn were left frus­trated not to start the sea­son with a win over Blan­tyre Vics.

Glens made a few changes with Nis­canci, Welsh, Boal and Shaw all com­ing in to the start­ing XI.

The away side thought they should have had a penalty in­side four min­utes when Terry He­witt wres­tled McLaugh­lin to the ground, rip­ping his shirt in the process.

A lovely ball from Muir sent Tait through on goal, but Blan­tyre‘keeper Paul Burns de­nied the striker.

Burns again kept Vics level when he par­ried Nis­canci’s shot.

A lovely pass­ing move re­sulted in McLaugh­lin find­ing him­self clean through, but again Burns was off his line to make the block.

Blan­tyre of­fered more in the sec­ond half and Muir had to scram­ble Thom­son’s header away from goal be­fore Burns tipped McLaugh­lin’s striker round the post.

Glens found them­selves re­duced to 10 men in the 73rd minute when Boal kicked the ball at Fer­gu­son, with the ref deem­ing it wor­thy of a red.

De­spite the man disad­van­tage, Glens con­tin­ued to press and Burns had to save a Nis­canci shot late on. Ruther­glen Glen­cairn: Hutchi­son, Shaw, Boal, Doyle, Neil, Welsh, Ni­sanci, Alan Muir, McLaugh­lin (Zok), Tait, Fraser.
