Irvine Meadow boss Colin Spence says he is “over the moon” with his side’s start to the season after they maintained their 100 per cent winning record following a 1-0 victory away at Largs Thistle on Saturday.

It was Meadow’s second consecutive win in the Premier Division of the West of Scotland Football League following their opening day win at Rossvale.

Andy McLaughlin’s free kick was the difference between the two sides with Meadow having to play the final minutes with nine players after Mark McLennan and Jared Willet both received red cards.

Meadow co-boss Spence was delighted with his side’s efforts but was not impressed with the referee’s decisions.

He told the Times: “I am very pleased with the Largs win, the boys worked their socks off.

“We knew it would be a tough game again and we had a few decisions go against us but the players dealt with everything that was thrown at them and I feel it was three deserved points.

“I thought the referee got both decisions wrong.

“I felt Mark’s first yellow was harsh and I was astonished when Jared was shown a red.

“After the reds we had to try and reorganise the team and we were shouting instructions at them and they dealt with it very well.

“They defended for their lives and to a man I thought they were excellent. It was always going to be a tough match but it was even harder with the decisions going against us but the boys showed great fight and determination.

“I am over the moon with the first two games to get two wins away from home.

“We need to continue to build momentum. There is no point going away and winning tough games to then throw it away at home so we want to build a winning mentality.”

Elsewhere, in the Premier Division Kilwinning Rangers got their first league victory of the season with an impressive 1-0 win away at Darvel.

This Saturday, Meadow play their first home match against Hurlford while the Buffs take on Rossvale.
