Saturday 26 October 2019 – Dennistoun Thistle 2 – 4 Tollcross – Crownpoint – KO 10am
Today’s opposition was Tollcross, another new entrant to the Churches league and another team that we had played in the group staged of the Athol Cup, a game which ended in the only draw we’ve ever had since starting the club. We knew today would be tough, as Tollcross has started strong in both the league and cups they had entered, but we were ready to go and wearing our new away kit for the first time.
Just 5 mins into the game Dennistoun took the lead through a penalty which Aldo slotted home, getting us off to a positive start. However the rest of the game didn’t continue in that way. The game had chances for both teams, but Tollcross were getting the better of us and frustration set in.
This frustration caused us to be a little bit negative towards our own teammates, which didn’t help us focus on the game in hand. First defeat in the league today after a disappointing performance and letting our own frustrations boil over. All credit to Tollcross who deserved the points – we’ll go back into training and look to turn things around with a winning performance next week.
Full time score: Dennistoun Thistle 2 – 4 Tollcross
