Ruther­glen..........2 Irvine Meadow....5 Af­ter go­ing three weeks with­out a match, Wil­lie Har­vey’s Ruther­glen Glen­cairn side in­vited Su­perleague Premier out­fit Irvine Meadow for a friendly on Mon­day night.

Meadow took the lead af­ter seven min­utes when Richie Barr was al­lowed to run through and lob goal­keeper Hutchi­son.

The Irvine side’s lead was dou­bled in the 19th minute when Liam Fin­ni­gan pounced on an er­ror by Andy Neil and drove the ball un­der Hutchi­son.

Glen­cairn fans were fear­ing the worst when Shaun Fraser made it 3-0 on 23 min­utes de­spite two fouls not given in the build-up.

But The Glens pulled a goal back be­fore half time when Mark Batch­e­lor sprung the off­side trap on the right and squared for Paddy Cullen to con­vert.

Meadow stretched their lead again in the 52nd minute when Gary McCann’s cross was laid on a plate for Paul Maxwell to score from a yard out.

Glen­cairn bounced back again and pulled an­other goal back on the hour mark, Sean McGuire link­ing well with De­nis McLaugh­lin be­fore slip­ping the ball un­der goal­keeper Graeme Shep­herd.

The fi­nal goal came with the last kick of the ball, from David Sin­clair, whose 20- yard shot sailed home via a de­felction.

Mean­while, Ross Cameron’s goal for the Glen­cairn Un­der- 16s gave them a 1-1 draw with Broomhill to climb to fourth.

Glens’ un­der-17s beat Giffnock SC Milan 4-2 to stay top of the Pais­ley John­stone & Dis­trict U-17 Di­vi­sion One while the un­der-13s lost 3-2 to Hal­dane United, with Glens’ Jamie Devlin and Joe Friel get­ting on the score­sheet.
