Jordan eyes first Scottish Cup win
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.”
