Greenock 4 Forth 4

Forth drew 4-4 with Greenock Juniors in an entertaining match at the Inverclyde Academy 3G tonight in freezing and foggy conditions.

Greenock raced into a 2 goal lead within 20 minutes but the Wanderers were giving their defence plenty to think about through Tony Traynor on the right, Kenny Wright in the middle and Gordon Murphy on the left and it was no surprise when Traynor halved the deficit with a neat finish.

Chris McGroarty levelled things with a perfectly struck shot early in the second half, before Greenock briefly regained the advantage. Kenny Wright then levelled things with a trademark clinical finish before Greenock looked to have won it with another goal to make it 4-3. Both teams had further chances to score but it took until virtually the last kick of the ball for Barry Canning to equalise from a splendid ball by Gordon Murphy.

The majority of the Wanderers squad got a run out tonight in a game which could easily have finished 7 all.

Here’s hoping the weather is kind and we can resume our league campaign against Newmains on Saturday.

‘Mon the Forth.
