Today Grahamston BC resumed their FVDA Robert Paterson cup campaign with a second round tie against Riverside BC at Forthbank Stadium Stirling. The prize for the eventual winners would be a quarter final place against Cumbernauld Colts. 

As the game kicked off Grahamston settled the quicker of the 2 teams and scored 2 goals within the first 15 minutes. A two goal brace came from Blair Hastings, the first a cross from the right hand side met at the back post and the second a good individual effort beating the on rushing Riverside goal keeper.
Grahamstons third goal came from their debutante Jae Convery scoring what was the pick of the bunch toady with a great 20 yard strike finding the top corner. 

The half didn't amount to much and became a bit of a drab affair as their was no fluidity, width or possession football to Grahamstons style of play as the ball was moving far to quickly and then breaking down.
The coaches of Grahamston recognised this and with a few tactical changes in the line up the last 10 minutes of the half was a much better footballing event with Grahamston beginning to to play much better football.
Half Time: Riverside BC 0-3 Grahamston BC
The coaches of Grahamston got their players in at halftime they made 2 changes in a wide position and also up front. 

As the whistle blew for the second half immediately it could be seen that the Grahamston players had listened to what they had been told by building play when they had the opportunity, holding possession and using the ball much better using the width if the park.

Grahamston added 5 more goals coming from Robbie (Frodo the Precious) Fotheringham, Derrick (Big Slick) Hunter an unfortunate og from the Riverside defender and finally from Jae Convery adding another 2 good goals to grab a debut hat trick in his first game for the club.  
Full Time: Riverside BC 0-8 Grahamston BC
