An update from our Manager

What a week……… last Saturday in the Scottish Cup was a great occasion. Every single player gave everything they had,  and left nothing on the pitch.

We put in a great performance and scored a couple of decent goals too. I want to give a special mention to Andy Jones who had a particularly difficult week after his dad Gwyn had taken Ill after the Linlithgow game last Saturday.

Andy was determined to play in the Scottish cup match and we discussed him scoring a goal for his dad. I’d never thought he’d do it within 2 mins but he did, and now goes down in the history books as the club’s first ever scorer in the Scottish Cup.

Andy tells me Gwyn is recovering well in hospital and we all wish him a speedy recovery.

After the celebrations of Saturday we were back in league action on Tuesday night against a good Tynecastle team. We looked a bit leggy on Tuesday with the amount of matches we are playing, but done enough to get 3 important points.

We created lots of chances which is always pleasing and could have won by a greater margin. We are patching players up to play at the minute and can’t get a settled team with the amount of injuries, knocks or illnesses going about.

We are short again tomorrow,  but whoever plays will be determined to extend our current run of good results.

I hope you can make it along tomorrow to Ferguson Park, and cheer on the lads.

Take care

Kevin Haynes, DUFC
