Score: 3 - 1

Match Report

Carluke Rovers travelled to Wishaw Sports Centre to play local rivals Newmains United in a pre-season friendly and their initial match in the Breathing Space Cup tournament.

The game was a bit scrappy in the first half with Newmains being slightly on top and taking the lead only for Carluke to equalise before half time.

The second half seen several changes by the Rovers management but Newmains continued to boss the match and capitalised on that with a further 2 goals.

This victory put Newmains deservingly to the top of the Breathing Space Cup tournament league.

A poor performance from the Rovers in their first pre-season friendly and with a few more pre-season friendlies lined up the management team will be looking for improvements.

Great to have football back though.
