Match Report | Cumnock Juniors 0 – Broomhill 3 | 26/11/2023 | Townhead Park
by David McIntyre
Broomhill scored three goals without reply to fire themselves into the Fourth Round of the Scottish Cup.
It was another successful away fixture for the Broom in the Scottish Cup as they headed off to Townhead Park, home of Cumnock Juniors from the West of Scotland Football League. The match started at lightning pace as both teams looked to get an early foothold in the game. Broomhill were boosted with the return of some of their injured players, giving manager Stephen Swift more options to change the game.
Cumnock Juniors grew into the match and had been doing better with their position. Although Cumnock had more possession they failed to create many goal-scoring opportunities to trouble Luke Scullion.
In the 29th minute, Broomhill took the lead after Ally McColm rifled a low shot into the bottom corner. The goal was created with lovely play down the left-hand side of the pitch involving four players. After the goal, Broomhill took control of the match and continued to pressure Cumnock’s defence.
The second half could not have started any better, with Corey O’Donnell doubling Broomhill’s advantage. Martin Grehan assisted the goal with a lovely touch to set up O’Donnell with a 1v1 with the keeper which the striker deftly dispatched.
The second goal was huge, as it allowed Broomhill to play more freely. Every time they attacked, there was a sense of enthusiasm as they moved up the pitch. The two goal scorers were involved in the third after O’Donnell’s initial shot was parried into the path of McColm to fire into the back of the net and fire Broomhill into the next round.
The Fourth Round of the Scottish Gas Men’s Scottish Cup will see Broomhill travel to Championship side Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January.
