Dirrans Athletic AFC manager Jason Stewart says he was delighted as his side won a cup thriller 4-3 against Beith AFC.

The two sides played out a goalfest in the Second Round of the Jimmy Scott Memorial Trophy at Beith Astro,

Despite the end scoreline it was a reasonably quiet first half, with the only goal of the period coming for the hosts via Glenn Hyslop.

In the second half, Beith then doubled their advantage through Liam Shepherd’s header to put one foot into the third round.

However, Dirrans spectacularly turned the game on it’s head and took the lead after goals from Ross McManus, Rab Lynch and Graeme Muir.

But Beith bounced back and grabbed an equaliser through Shepherd to set up a tense finale.

It was the Dirrans who grabbed a late winner through Stephen Crichton to cap an exhilarating cup tie.

Speaking to the Times, Stewart said: “It was a very good performance, considering we were 2-0 down, we did well to battle back.

“But the game could have gone anyway to be honest, it was a close game, Beith did well as well.

“But I was delighted to get the win.”
