HIGH-flying Craigmark Burntonians are celebrating a major landmark in the Macron Scottish Junior Cup.

They edged out 1975 winners Glenrothes 2-1 in a cliffhanger which went right to the wire, to clinch a last 16 spot for the first time in more than three decades.

A dramatic last gasp goal from Bryce Reid clinched victory for the Dalmellington team.

Manager Greg Gallagher, in his first season in charge admitted it was a thrilling afternoon and said: "That was a great win for us, the boys were saying it's the furthest we have gone in the Scottish Cup since the 1980's. We played well and missed quite a few chances in both halves. But the win felt even more special I think because the goal came so late, with the last kick of the ball and we could celebrate even more than we might have done.

"It's great to be through but I'm not bothered about who we play in the next round."

Saturday sees 'Mark head to North Ayrshire to face fellow strugglers Irvine Vics, who lost 6-1 away to Cumbernauld United.

Both teams were promoted from the Ayrshire District League last season.

Gallagher added: "We want to start picking up in the league and the aim is to make sure we survive. It's an important game for us and we must make sure we take the three points."
