On Saturday Vale of Girvan were at home to premer league side Dirrans Athletic in the second round of the Ayrshire Amateur Cup, and came away iwth a stunning victory.

Early on in the first half good work from Darren Henderson down the left holding the ball up and then playing it into the path of Gap who side footed it low into the corner to make it 1-0.

In the 25th minute Dirrans scored a good goal well-worked goal from a soft free kick just outside the box.

The winner though came two minutes from time from Bob Ashworth who was put clear by Darren Henderson. Ash still had it all to do but kept his cool to slot home with only two minutes on the clock.

It was a great result for Girvan who always looked good to win.

Thanks to Paula nd Helen at the Boar’s Head in Colmonell for sponsoring the match ball.
