DUNFERMLINE U19's 1 - 1 INVERNESS U19's - 15th Oct 2004

Last updated : 19 March 2005 By Pars Mad

In what was a relatively dissapointing performance from the young Pars against the U19 league's bottom side, Inverness, neither side truly tested the two keepers for any length of time.

After an encouraging start to the match, the Pars went close early on through efforts from McGlinchey and Ogg, the Inverness defence eventually managing to scramble clear.

The visitors were - despite their lowly league position - playing some neat football and it was to come as a surprise when the Pars took the lead a minute before the break. A fairly aimless cross was sent in from the Pars left wing with the Caley keeper confidently approaching the ball for the pick-up, then, in calamitous fashion, the ball seemed to slip through the keeper's hands with Pars striker Steven MCGLINCHEY capatalising on the error to scramble home the opener.

A goal down, the visitors came out for the second-half with an obvious sense of determination, one which would see them equalise only four minutes into the second half. After skillful play on the left, Inverness' left winger sent in a low driven cross which was turned into the net by the visitors to level the scores.

Both sides, in particular the Pars, continued to press for the remainder of the match with neither really looking like adding to the scoreline.

PARS - Murdoch, Wilson, Kay, Vinter, (Smith 35), Scullion, Ross, Dunn, Phinn, McGlinchey, Ogg, Armour (Anderson 55).
