Match Day 8 | Broomhill vs BRFC

Match Preview / Team News

The Dream Team are back on the road tomorrow night where the will face the outfit formal known as B.S.C Glasglow, Broomhill FC.

Broomhill are coming into the game after a loss to tier 7 side Dunipace in the delayed the 19/20 South of Scotland Challenge Cup Final. Berwick themselves played Dunipace last season and left that game with a victory, progressing in the Scottish Cup to play Stirling Albion.

Berwick go into the game on the back of their first away win of the season, after beating University of Stirling 1-3 on Saturday. The squad came through the game with only one new injury as Sean Stewart picked up a knock, and thus the squad going into the test against Broomhill is largely the same to that which traveled to Stirling at the weekend.

Jordan Sinclair is close to returning but this game comes a little too early and he is likely to again miss out. Ryan Finnie was back on Saturday and after getting 90mins under his belt but has fallen ill and will miss the trip to Indodrill.

1881 Exclusive News | Gers’ boss Stuart Malcom is working hard on a loan deal to strengthen the Dream Team and all at the club are working hard to have this completed to allow the new addition to feature against Broomhill. Stay tuned to social channels for more info.

Tickets for the game cost £8 / £4 / Under 16’s free. The away support this season has been excellent and everyone at BRFC looks forward to seeing you there. For those who cannot join, you can watch the live stream hosted by Broomhill ambassador  Mozza on Twitch:

Broomhill 1 – 2 Berwick Rangers

A familiar pattern unfolded as Berwick Struggled to get going in the first half with the game being broken up by the ball going into play quite often. The Gers’ had chances, the best falling to Lewis Baker who came in from the start today for Calum Smith, who had a well struck shot saved from close range. Ferguson and Harris both also came close but soon after the home team took the lead from the spot, after Lewis Baker’s raised hand hit the ball as it came in from a corner.

The visitors drew level, for the second game in a row, on the stroke of half time. This time the scorer was Lewis Barr, who picked up the ball on the left cut inside and whipped a shot into the far corner. A superb effort (on the assumption he meant it and it wasn’t a cross). None the less The Gers’ went in level as the half time whistle went straight from the restart.

Baker made way for McGrath, who made his debut for the visitors, at half time. The visitors dominated the second half, passing was much improved and the ball was moved around well. McGrath made an impressive start, showing an great touch, good movement and that caused the Broomhill defence worry.

Pressure are and are throughout the half but the end product was not there. STM came close with a great free kick which was well saved. The winner came in 87th min after some superb work from the new man, McGrath who took the ball in on the edge of the box, turned 2 of the Broomhill defence and slipped it in to Taylor who finished with composure for this 3rd in 2 games and sealed the points for Berwick.

Next up, The Gers’ welcome East Kilbride to Shielfield on Saturday, 3pm KO.
