Gretna narrowly missed out in an exciting match where both sides committed to attacking, entertaining football that thrilled the fans at Raydale on Wednesday night.

2008 opened the scoring with a cheeky Brandon Longcake flick past McGinley in the Kilby goal. But East Kilbride quickly struck back and a hat trick from Jack Smith pushed them ahead. They went further ahead when Mark Blakey made it 4-1 before Dean Smith eased the Raydale side’s blushes with a goal just before half time.

Sean Winter extended the visitors lead in the 55th minute before the hoops launched a thrilling fight back with goals from Longcake and Anderson.

The match could have been squared if McGinley had not made a superb penalty save low down on his left.

Disappointment for Gretna but certainly one which had the fans buzzing. Luckily the Raydale side have a quick chance to bounce back with a visit from Stirling University to Raydale on Saturday.
