Whitehill Welfare v Girvan, Scottish Cup First Round 3-1

Whitehill Welfare progressed to the second round of the Scottish Cup with a comfortable win over Girvan on Saturday.

Their reward is a second round match at home against SPFL side East Stirling on October 4.

On Saturday the home side were immediately on the front foot and after good work from Wayne McIntosh, Steven Manson was played in on the right hand side of the box and he made no mistake with an angled finish high into the net.

Welfare pushed for a second and John Hall saw a shot from close range just held by Colin Robertson in the Girvan goal and Darren McGlashan again tested the keeper from distance.

Battling Girvan almost equalised when Manson was forced to clear on the line and the referee waived away shouts for handball and a penalty.
