Doc’s beat­ing a win­ning drum

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

IN Dundee Satur­day Morn­ing League ac­tion, sig­nif­i­cant progress has been made by Doc’s Hiber­nia who have clawed back the gap with their games in hand at the top of the Premier.

Their 4-2 win over FC Ket­tle­drum takes them to within a point of lead­ers Hill­town Hot­spurs but, cru­cially, they have a game in hand on the ti­tle hold­ers.

It now looks very much like a two-horse race for the ti­tle with Ket­tle­drum and River­side CSC slip­ping out of the reck­on­ing.

DUSC’s 3-0 win over River­side puts paid to any out­side chance they may have hoped for of push­ing the league lead­ers to the wire.

It also eased rel­e­ga­tion fears for DUSC who open up a four-point gap be­tween them and Dry­burgh whose 1-0 de­feat to Hawkhill keeps them in the sec­ond rel­e­ga­tion spot, al­beit with a game in hand.

The table is propped up by DC Ath­letic who are only a point be­hind Dry­burgh with a game in hand.

In the Bal­gay Bar First Divi­sion, Cairdy This­tle went into top spot though they have played two more than un­de­feated St James fol­low­ing a 3-1 win over Club 83.

Mark Mor­ris scored for the Tan­ger­ines to pull it back to 2-1 be­fore a late goal sealed the points for Cairdy.

In the Tri­dent Tro­phies Sec­ond Divi­sion, Dundee City went into sec­ond with a 3-2 win over Kelso.

Bank Street Ath­letic re­main top af­ter an 8-1 win over bot­tom club Fife This­tle.

Clark’s fine 3-1 win over Boars Rock lifts them away from the bot­tom of the table and level on points with Sto­b­swell Ath­letic and Kelso.

They also have games in hand over their com­peti­tors.

Can­non Fod­der’s stint in t he Di­rect Soc­cer spon­sored North of Tay Cup came to an abrupt halt when t hey were beaten 8-1 by Broughty United.

Hav­ing pegged one back to level on t he 40 minute mark through Len­non Brett, Fod­der con­ceded soon af­ter at a free-kick to go i n 2-1 down.

Any come­back hopes were soon sti­fled as they con­ceded five sec­ond half goals from cor­ner kicks to top off a sham­bolic per­for­mance and send them out of the com­pe­ti­tion. An eighth goal from open play topped off a mis­er­able af­ter­noon.

This week­end’s fix­tures are in doubt due to the win­try fore­cast.

Club sec­re­taries are asked to check their email ac­counts and keep their phones on as an up­date will be pro­vided on Fri­day af­ter­noon as to the sta­tus of the parks.

They will be con­tacted by the match sec­re­tary as soon as he knows the state of play.
