ROSE took advantage of the early postponement of the game against Kirkcaldy to secure a friendly against current Scottish Junior Cup holders Auchinleck. In truth the result was something of a travesty as the two teams were evenly matched throughout the 90 minutes.

Linlithgow dominated the early stages of the match and it was no suprise when Roddy McLennan got in behind the Talbot defence to put his side ahead, but then the counter-scoring began - find out how the rest of the match played ou in Jon Mahoney’s match report, in the Journal and Gazette on sale today, Friday, December 16.
