Carluke Rovers 2-1 Vale of Leven
Carluke: John McNulty (36), Kevin Barclay (90).
Vale: Dougie Wilson
Man of the match: Stevie Gow
Saturday 6th October 2001
Abercorn Builders Central League Division 1

Vale suffered a disappointing defeat in a game they should have won easily. They dominated early proceedings and took the lead when a cross from Ward was met by Wilson, who got in front of his marker to head home from close range.

The lead didn't last long however and a hooked shot by the Carluke no. 7 looped over Maclaurin and into the back of the net.

Vale were determined to take the three points back down the road and had a good shout for a penalty turned down early in the second half. Wilson looked to have been tripped in the box as he made his way to the byline, but the referee waved away the protests and awarded a goal kick.

Renton and McKernan came on as Vale looked to push forward for the winner, but in the last few minutes it was Carluke who scored. One of their players picked the ball up in the midfield, drove forward and hit a shot from about 22 yards which flew into the back of the net.


Team: Maclaurin, Goodwin, Hunter, Gow, Lacy, Wilson, Deeley (Renton), Brown, Gentile, Ward, D. Meechan (McKernan). Sub not used: J. Meechan
