Bonnyrigg Rose v Shettleston
Scottish Junior Cup (23/09/2017)

(Report submitted by Bonnyrigg Rose)

Rose Cruise into Round 2 Against Toothless Shettleston 


In a game that will be quickly forgotten, Bonnyrigg Rose strolled around in the sunshine against a Shettleston team who offered nothing as an attacking force. The visitors were so poor that they never forced Young into a meaningful save and in truth, the home side never got out of second gear. The match was more like a training session as Rose completely dominated and if they had been more clinical in front of goal, might have doubled their total. Shettleston competed poorly in the middle of the park and their frontline was anonymous. 


Shettleston F C were the latest visitors to  New Dundas Park - this time on Scottish Junior Cup 1st Round business. The "Town" are based in Glasgow's East End and have never won the Junior Cup but, were beaten finalists in the 1958/59 competition against Irvine Meadow X1 and have reached the quarter finals as recently as 2014/15, losing out to Junior Cup specialists Auchinleck Talbot.  They lost to Kilwinning Rangers in the third round last season. The "town" number amongst their former players Scottish Internationalists, Tommy Docherty and Campbell Forsyth.
This season Shettleston play in the Super First Division - the West Region's second tier and lie bottom of that League after 5 games without a win. They also finished bottom of their group in the Central Sectional League Cup. They are not scoring many goals this term but are conceding a lot.
The hosts have started the season in good form and are unbeaten in the East SuperLeague - they currently sit in second place just behind Penicuik. They reached the semi final of the Junior Cup last season losing out by a single goal to eventual winners Glenafton. A measure of the strength Rose's squad is that they had a number of players selected for the upcoming international tournament. 


Rose were straight onto the attack with McIntosh feeding Gray who fired his effort across the front of the goal. After 6 minutes Hoskins shot over from range before Brown curled a free kick just wide. Next a McIntosh snap shot went just beyond the far post before McGachie put a great shooting chance off target. The only surprise after 20 minutes was that Rose hadn't opened their account. All Shettleston had to show for that period was a Martin effort well wide of the target. 

After 27 minutes Rose finally opened their account. Currie sent over a corner and the unmarked KERR YOUNG rose high to power a header past Whyte in the visitor's goal. 

Minutes later McIntosh had a shot from a Gray cut back but he couldn't hit the target. Seconds later McGachie just beat Whyte to a passback but his effort slipped agonisingly wide of the goal.  

With 37 minutes played Rose produced some good football to allow Currie to drive in on goal but his effort was deflected for a corner. In their next raid Gray shot wide from the edge of the box. 

With 5 minutes to the break Rose doubled their lead. A Brown free kick found its way to McGachie who missed his kick. However, his effort committed Whyte in goal and as he went to ground, MCGACHIE netted at the second attempt. 


There was no doubt Rose deserved their lead but two goals hardly reflected their dominance in the first 45 minutes. 


Half Time Bonnyrigg Rose 2;  Shettleston F C 0


No changes at the break and it looked like damage limitation for the visitors. 

Shettleston showed a little more spirit as the half got underway and Nolan made an eye catching run but it came to nothing. 

In the next few minutes, Brett sent over two crosses from the right, the first McGachie couldn't quite reach but he got on the end of the second, sending his header narrowly beyond the post. 

The pattern of Rose totally dominating continued and the third goal game after 59 minutes. BRETT struck a free kick which took a cruel deflection past the wrong footed Whyte. 

Both sides introduced substitutes and Turner for Rose brought out a good stop from Whyte. 

With 15 minutes left Rose got their fourth. Brown caught the visitor's defence napping with a short free kick and CURRIE side footed his shot past the helpless Whyte. 

Rose were now strolling around and creating lots of openings as the visitors tired and Whyte did well to keep a McConnell header out  from a Currie corner. 

McEwan had a shot for Shettleston but it was a tame effort from range. 

With five minutes remaining Rose wrapped up the scoring. Martyniuk finding fellow sub MCCONNELL with a dinked cross. 


This was a very one sided encounter and Shettleston were completely outclassed. Best for Rose were Brown and Brett although the defence cruised through the ninety minutes. Whyte did well in the visitor's goal but they are a side struggling and it will be a long hard season for them. However, to their credit they never resorted to being over physical and let Rose play their football. 


Next Saturday Rose entertain Carnoustie Panmure in the SuperLeague while Shettleston are also on League duty away to Renfrew FC.
