    Jim Goodwin after Scottish Cup Victory

    I was delighted with the effort and commitment as always from the lads. It was a very end to end game and one i'm sure would have been enjoyable from a neutral point of view. We caused a few of our own problems in the first half which allowed Peterhead a couple of opportunities but thankfully we were able to recover in time and make the appropriate blocks and tackles to allow us to hang on to another clean sheet. I think that's ten for the season now.  

    Neill Parry was outstanding again with another two very important saves at key moments in the game  and Ryan Hoggan was excellent too, he never put a foot wrong the whole game and was very assured at left sided centre half of a back three. Jamie Longworth deserves special mention too, whenever you make a change as manager you hope it will have a positive impact and Jammer certainly done that for us saturday. He took his goal very well. 

    We had a number of good opportunities throughout the game and with a little bit more composure we could have scored a few more

    Overall I was delighted with the performance and result. It was always going to be a difficult tie, but the team stood up to everything Peterhead threw at them and managed to ensure our place in the next round of the cup. 

    We are all looking forward to the draw  and are hoping this will be the start of another memorable cup run. 

    With regards to the Stranraer game being postponed, we are disappointed of course but at the same time it allows a few of our injured boys a little more time to recover.
