It was a fairly easy progress through to the second round of the Scottish Cup this afternoon with a 4-0 win against Brechin Vics in the first round tie. A very poor crowd attended the match to see Arniston 3 up at the interval.
Nicol got the first goal, with the vics scoring the second. An own goal with a header, with no Arniston players within striking distance. Colin Nicol was on hand to tap in the 3rd before half time.
Barnes failed to return to the park in the second half, the management likely wishing to give him some time to recover from an injury sustained last week. The match looked over at this point.
Although the second half was not so comfortable, Arniston hit the woodwork on a number of occasions and it was Lee Ballie who made it 4 with a simple header.
