After a very good start to the season, September wasn’t such a good month for us. Two 2-0 defeats in the league to Turriff and Banks O’ Dee respectively saw us drop from 6th to 10th in the table and they were accompanied by a disappointing Scottish Cup exit at the hands of Glasgow University. While we felt that we created enough chances in the first half to win the cup game, we were punished for not taking them and conceded a couple of goals we thought we could have dealt with better. We were devastated to have let the club and its supporters down on the biggest stage but we hope that that feeling is something that our younger players in particular will learn from and the experience will help them in the future. It is worth noting that Glasgow University took Albion Rovers to extra time in the 2nd Round so they were certainly no mugs, though the overall feeling remains that it was a good opportunity lost.
September also saw the departure of Callum Murray to Huntly. Although Callum was only with us for a short period of time, he became a popular figure within the changing room and rarely missed training. Unfortunately, moves do not always work out and it was in the best interests of both the club and Callum to allow him to make the switch to Huntly. We wish Callum the best, I am sure that once he regains his full fitness, he can make a positive contribution at his new club.
