SJFA East of Scotland Cup. Quarter-Final
Dundonald Bluebell 1 Newtongrange Star 1, 5-4 on penalties (att 150)
The last time I tried to watch a game at Dundonald I arrived to find it was off, but no such problems this time and Moorside Park looked a picture in the warm sunshine.
It's a great junior football venue, with three separate areas of cover for spectators, some steep grass banking, a social club and a snack bar from where I enjoyed an excellent steak pie.
There's no shortage of cup competitions in junior football, but the East of Scotland Cup is one of the better ones, and as expected it was a tight and competitive battle between two Super League sides.
We had to wait until well into the second half for the opening goal, a well placed header for the home side. They couldn't hang onto their lead though, and Newtongrange were well worth their equaliser.
No extra time in junior football (except the national Scottish Junior Cup) so it was straight to a penalty shoot out to determine the semi-finalist. Dundonald triumphed 5-4, but not without controversy amid claims their keeper was moving from the goal line before kicks were taken.
