Fairmuir got off to the perfect start in 2017 with a 7-0 victory against Dundee United SC. The visitors found themselves 3-0 up at the break and despite an improved performance from DUSC, found the net a further four times in the second half.

It took Fairmuir just 62 seconds to open the scoring, with Jay Tosh grabbing the opener. The ball fell to the striker inside the area and he drilled it past DUSC’s  Jamie Scott.

Scott was called into action moments later, producing a fine save to deny Angus Dewar. The midfielder broke away from the DUSC defence, but saw his shot pushed onto the crossbar by the goalkeeper.

DUSC were not prepared to lie down, and saw Ross Dewar’s shot saved by Lewis Burns. The hosts were growing into the game, denying Fairmuir any clear-cut chances, but struggling to ask any serious questions of Burns. Dewar fired wide after 21 minutes.

Despite the signs of improvement from DUSC, it was Fairmuir that got the second goal. Thomas Gibb was too hot for the DUSC defence to handle, and the striker slotted past Scott from inside the box after 27 minutes.

Two minutes later, the lead was three. Ryan McGregor finding the net from close range despite the offside calls from the DUSC players.

Fairmuir were in the mood and would have been further ahead if not for a good stop from Scott, this time the keeper denied Tosh. The pacey striker then rounded Scott after 33 minutes, but saw his shot cleared off the line.

DUSC had their best chance of the half six minutes before the break. Following a corner, the ball broke to John McGlashan, but he sent his effort over the bar, much to the despair of his teammates.

DUSC started the second half well and hit the post four minutes after the restart. Lennon McIntosh managed to get to the by-line, but his effort came back off the post.

Despite DUSC’s improvement, Fairmuir were about to seal the points with three goals in as many minutes. The first off which was scored by Jordan Adam, who swept home a wonderful first time effort from the top of the box after 53 minutes.

Rian Clark made it 5-0 after 54 minutes. Igor Zinko’s shot was well saved by Scott, but the ball fell kindly for the number 12, who put the ball into the empty net.

Zinko added Fairmuir’s sixth after 56 minutes. The midfielder managing to make his way through the DUSC defence before slotting the ball past Scott at the near post. This was a tough spell for DUSC, who had grown into the game, but now found themselves six down.

Fairmuir weren’t finished at six as Adam doubled his tally for the day with nine minutes remaining. The DUSC defence failing to clear a cross that eventually looped up into the air, onto the head of Adam who nodded home from close range.

Despite the one-sidedness of the score, DUSC managed to compete with Fairmuir for most of the match, and were unlucky not to have found the net at least once. Fairmuir on the other hand will be hoping to pick up trophies in 2017, and in form like this, it’s going to take a very good side to stop them.

Star Player
Dundee United SC
Fairmuir BC
Jude Moir - Battled well in the midfield and used the ball well. An all round decent performance from the DUSC man.
Angus Dewar - Was at the heart of everything Fairmuir did well. Rarely gave the ball away, picked up a couple of assists and was unfortunate not to find the net himself in what was a top performance.
Magic Moment
Dundee United SC
Fairmuir BC
McIntosh's run and shot in the second half - A good piece of individual skill and was unlucky not to find the net.
Zinko's Goal - A similar run to McIntosh's, but the Fairmuir man managed to find the net.
