FirParkCorner FC Progress in British Cup

The home side started brightly and it wasn't long before they took the lead with Darryn Alexander drilling home after the goalkeeper did well to block O'Neill’s initial effort. However, this seemed to spark the Aberdeen side into life and they went on to dominate the remainder of the first half, grabbing an equaliser on the half hour with a well-executed volley which left Graeme Farmer rooted to the spot.

The FPC Squad

Indeed, the visitors were unlucky not to be ahead at half time with several gilt-edged chances being missed before the interval. Fraser’s words of wisdom at the break clearly had an effect on his side as they rattled home two goals in the first three minutes of the second period. It was the prolific Joseph Lynas who bagged the brace with a pair of well-taken chances with his right foot.

Unsurprisingly, the Inter heads went down and FPC really should have killed off the game with a fourth goal. However, to the visitors’ credit, they did haul themselves back into it with a well-taken finish into the roof of the net with twenty minutes left to play.

Barry Lynas, brother of top-scorer Joe, was then introduced to add pace to the forward line and it wasn't long before FPC killed the game on the break.

Davie Tonner was in the right place at the right time to slot the ball into the corner of the net with a decisive finish. It was soon five as Barry Lynas broke from the left to bullet an unstoppable drive into the corner of the net.

Not to be outdone, Lynas Jnr then completed his hat-trick on the full-time whistle with an excellent chip over the helpless goalkeeper.

The margin of the victory probably flattered the Corner but they certainly deserved the victory. Scunthorpe will provide the next test for Fraser’s troops as they travel up north for round two at the start of February.
