Fortune strikes for Loanhead

Niddrie 3, Loanhead Parish Church 3

Loanhead Parish Church 3

Loanhead started the game brightly with centre forward Mark McNally looking sharp.

He was felled in the box after 10 minutes and captain Chris Fortune made no mistake from the sport.

Parish were still looking good when a defending error by John Livingston let Niddrie into the game when his short pass went to the home forward to score.

Loanhead regained the lead on half time when a good ball by John Davidson found Alan Duffin on the left wing. He cut the ball back to McNally, who fired the ball into the net.
