Vale hit eight against YM

The Galloway News - - SOUTH LEAGUE -

Abbey Vale 8 Dum­fries YMCA 0

Two play­ers scored hat-tricks as Abbey Vale crushed Dum­fries YMCA.

Craig Rudd com­pleted his tre­ble in­side the first 17 min­utes, his goals in­clud­ing a 25 yard screamer.

Cur­tis Telfer scored Vale’s fourth af­ter 36 min­utes and YMCA had Craig Peat sent off early in the sec­ond half.

Tommy Goss got the fifth just be­fore the hour mark, Telfer mak­ing it six in the 73rd minute.

Five min­utes later Goss scored again with Telfer com­plet­ing his hat-trick two min­utes from time.

Vale’s Mur­ray Camp­bell was made cap­tain for his fi­nal match af­ter be­ing ad­vised to give up the game on med­i­cal ad­vice de­spite be­ing just 19.

Vale co-man­ager Al­lan Clark said: “He’s been ad­vised not to do any­thing for the next three years and it’s a real blow as he’s one of, if not the best, left backs in the league.

“It was tremen­dous fin­ish­ing from Craig Rudd, it was dif­fer­ent class.

“Once we got the goals the game seemed to die a death and it was quite comfy in the end even though we didn’t play as well as we can. The goals helped us move up a few places in the league on goal dif­fer­ence.

“We played a lot bet­ter than the last time we played them and the early goals set­tled us down. They made it hard for us the last time and we didn’t play well at all.”

The win gives Vale a handy three points as they be­gin what ap­pears to be a tricky run of fix­tures, start­ing with Satur­day’s trip to league cham­pi­ons Th­reave Rovers.

Clark said: “Th­reave maybe haven’t been pick­ing up as many points as they’d have liked but it will still be a hard game and one they’ll be look­ing to get three points out of.

“The next six fix­tures are re­ally tough but at the same time a lot of the top sides play each other. The next five or six weeks will show what we’re made of.” Mid An­nan­dale 4 Lochmaben 1

Luke Ham­mond scored a hat-trick as Mid An­nan­dale saw off Lochmaben.

Ham­mond opened the scor­ing af­ter four min­utes when he chipped keeper Ross Wil­son fol­low­ing good work from Dean Smith.

Smith added the sec­ond three min­utes later af­ter be­ing played in by tri­al­ist Ro­man Soltys who signed af­ter the game.

Ham­mond chipped the keeper again mid­way through the half to put Mids well in con­trol and he com­pleted his hat-trick af­ter the break af­ter once again be­ing played in by Smith.

Lau­rie Maxwell headed in a con­so­la­tion goal for the vis­i­tors 20 min­utes from time be­fore Mids had Liam Gib­son sent off af­ter he picked up a sec­ond yel­low card. New­ton Stewart 2 Cree­town 1

New­ton Stewart claimed the derby brag­ging rights as they saw off Cree­town at Blair­mount Park.

Grant Fitzsim­mons gave the hosts an early lead and a five minute first half spell saw things get a lot worse for the vis­i­tors.

First, Wil­lie Cloy was sent off and then Fitzsim­mons dou­bled his side’s lead.

Dale McCutcheon scored af­ter the break to give Cree­town some hope but it was dashed when an­other player was sent off.

Cree­town, who have still to an­nounce a new man­ager, are set to wel­come He­ston Rovers to Cas­tle Cary Park in the league on Satur­day.
