Glen­cairn Un­der-19s were left to regret a mad three-minute spell which saw them go from two goals up to a goal be­hind in the SYFA West Re­gion Cup fi­nal against St Cadoc’s.

The young Glens, who were wrap­ping up their first ever sea­son, struck to take the lead just be­fore the half-time whis­tle through Mitchell MacDon­ald, who pounced on a de­fen­sive er­ror to lob the ball over the goal­keeper and then head it into an un­guarded net.

In the 59th minute Glen­cairn dou­bled their lead with a quite stun­ning strike from Mark Tay­lor, whose 25-yard shot sailed into the top cor­ner.

It seemed at this stage that the sil­ver­ware was set to head to Ruther­glen, but five min­utes later the game turned com­pletely on its head.

The 64th minute saw St Cadoc’s pull a goal back, and then an­other, when keeper Farrell came to claim the ball but a St Cadoc’s striker got to it first.

The dis­as­trous few min­utes con­tin­ued as United were awarded a penalty in the 66th minute and con­verted it be­fore adding an­other goal with 15 min­utes to se­cure the tro­phy.
