CUMBERNAULD co-manager James Orr admits he’s over the moon to be in the top five after his youthful side’s narrow win over bottom side Hawick.

Only William Mortimer’s strike, following a controversial penalty, gave Colts the three points that lift them to joint fourth in the table.

Manager Orr said: “We have the youngest squad in the Lowland League and we don’t have the finances of many of the other clubs, so being up amongst the leaders is great for us.

“I would be over the moon to finish in the top four this season.

“We made today’s win difficult for ourselves and the longer the game went on the more Hawick believed they could get something.”

BSC Glasgow took advantage of East Kilbride not having a game to move five points clear at the top with a 4-0 win over Whitehill Welfare.

Goal-hero Atkinson said: "We kept going right til the end and I just knew if we got one final chance we’d do it.

"When it went in I knew there would be no time for Gretna to respond too.

“I guess that’s the thing about us though – we just never know when to give up.

"We’ve got a lot of guys like myself who have come through the Academy system, it’s in our Spartans DNA to fight til the end.”

Gretna played the final hour with ten men after Jack Hunter was red-carded.

Edusport Academy moved into the top half of the table after Thomas Garnier’s late strike gave them a 2-1 over Civil Service Strollers in the capital.
