Port Glasgow Boys Club Orange progressed to the third round of the Scottish Cup after a 4-2 win over Finnart at Glasgow Green.

Port Glasgow came into the game sitting top of the Paisley, Johstone and District 2004 Division 3 while Finnart sit fifth in the same division, five points behind Port Glasgow. Finnart overcame Palace Park Pride 3-2 to reach the second round. Port Glasgow received a bye missing out on the first round.

The visitors would have fancied their chances going against Finnart, with their current superiority in the league. They lined up; O’Neill, Campbell, Fuller, Watt, S. Gault, Ingram, Brown, Gilmour, P. Gault, MacDonald, Rodgers in a 4-4-2 formation.

It took Port Glasgow only 22 minutes to open the scoring. Lyle MacDonald put his side in front, from there a strong finish to the half saw the visitors take a commanding lead into the break. Kyle fuller doubled his side’s lead on the 42nd minute before Declan Bryne came off the bench to score a third a minute before half time. 

The second half Finnart had somewhat of a mini revival as they pulled a goal back on 48 minutes. However, any hope of a comeback was to put to bed only a minute later as Byrne scored his second of the game. The match was over as a contest for Finnart but they grabbed a late consultation to complete the 4-2 scoreline.

Jamie Gilmour was named man of the match for the hosts. The central midfielder was vital in the engine room for Port Glasgow.

The Two teams will meet again on the 21st October in the league. Both sides return to league action this Saturday where Finnart will play hosts to Parkmoor and Port Glasgow will welcome Palace Park Pride. Of course, Port Glasgow will also now eagerly anticipate the draw for the third round.
