Five games took place this evening.
Dave Gladman managed to consolidate his position at the top of the league with a 3-0 victory over Colin Berry. Gladman has started the league preferring playing a faster game than his slower possession style. This allowed Berry much more possession and opportunities than is normal against Gladman but he was unable to take any of those opportunities. In contrast Gladman was able to breach the usually solid Berry defence by employing swift attacking moves. Berry did manage to get his first point on the table, coming from behind to draw 1-1 with John Mathieson. Berry took only a minute to equalise after losing a first half goal. Berry was able to prevent Mathieson reproducing his flowing play of last week but a share of the points was probably fair.
Willie Fleming opened his campaign with two wins, the first a hard fought one against Baver Bari. Although both players had numerous chances, only one goal was scored. Bari could reasonably argue that he deserved to take something from this match. Fleming had less difficulty in his second match with a crushing victory over Brian Spoors.
The club welcomed the return to action of Ronnie McKenzie in a high scoring match against Baver Bari. McKenzie scored first but found himself 3-2 down at half-time. The outcome was in doubt until the final moment when Bari sealed the match with a fifth goal.
