Jor­dan eyes first Scot­tish Cup win

Rutherglen Reformer - - U21s Cup Final Preview -

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn striker Jor­dan David­son be­lieves his team have ev­ery chance of clinch­ing their first piece of sil­ver­ware for the sea­son.

The 20-year-old has been part of the side who are cur­rently on an 20-game un­beaten run and have also not lost to Sun­day’s op­po­nents Bar­rhead YMC this sea­son.

Jor­dan, an ap­pren­tice brick layer from Spring­hall, has proved to be a po­tent threat for the Glens since join­ing from ri­vals Tower Hearts in Fe­bru­ary 2016.

And with con­fi­dence build­ing ev­ery week in the Glens camp, the for­mer Trin­ity High School pupil reck­ons any­thing is pos­si­ble.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,”he said.“Every­body is just buzzing for it and re­ally up for the fi­nal.

“There’s a good chance be­cause we’ve beat them be­fore so we can do it.

“We started slow this sea­son and then picked up and started get­ting points on the board. Every­body is play­ing well at the mo­ment.

“It [The Scot­tish Cup fi­nal]is the first

Semi fi­nal hero Jor­dan David­son time for every­body in­clud­ing the coaches so it will be good.

“Hope­fully there will be a great crowd there. It’s a Scot­tish Cup fi­nal, it’s a big sta­dium so it would be great if there was.”

Jor­dan scored the all-im­por­tant win­ner in the semi-fi­nal against his for­mer club last month with just 11 min­utes on the clock re­main­ing.

Tower threw bod­ies in front of his first shot be­fore the ball fell kindly for Jor­dan to score from a few yards out spark­ing wild cel­e­bra­tions and a pile-up of play­ers.

“It was great to score the win­ning goal es­pe­cially against my old team,” he said. “It was an amaz­ing feel­ing.”

Glens co-man­ager Alex McArthur was over­joyed to see Jor­dan bag the goal that sent the team through to their first cup fi­nal of the sea­son.

He said:“In the last few weeks he has been phe­nom­e­nal for us. Es­pe­cially in the semi fi­nal. He bullied the two cen­tre halves who were his ex team­mates at Tower and scored the win­ner with just a few min­utes to go.

“I was ab­so­lutely de­lighted for the boy be­cause he has worked so hard.

“For the first wee while he was out the team but Jor­dan is a con­fi­dence player and if you give him con­fi­dence and en­cour­age­ment he’ll go and do it for you.”
