Cam­bus­lang Rangers....0 Auchin­leck Tal­bot.........3

Cam­bus­lang Rangers were knocked out of the West of Scot­land Cup at the week­end when Su­per Pre­mier Side Auchin­leck Tal­bot vis­ited Somervell.

The goals the home side con­ceded could eas­ily have been avoided and the mis­takes at the back cost them dearly in the end.

Lang started well enough and the Tal­bot keeper had to be alert to turn Dale Simeon’s ef­fort round the post in Lang’s first at­tack.

The vis­i­tors took the lead after only five min­utes. A free kick was con­ceded out on the touch­line and the ball was floated into the dan­ger area. Mil­liken made a move to the front post that wasn’t matched by the Lang de­fence and he rose to nod past Stewart in the Lang goal.

There fol­lowed a pat­tern of play with nei­ther side able to get a grip on the game and it be­came bogged down in the mid­dle of the park. Lang strik­ers Gorm­ley and Kil­martin had very lit­tle to feed off.

The vis­i­tors dou­bled their lead on 25 Cor­ner man Liam Gorm­ley is held off by a Tal­bot man; Dale Simeon con­trols the ball un­der pres­sure, be­low
