IN one of the few amateur games played at the weekend, Pittenweem Rovers welcomed Dalgety Bay for a league game.

With just five minutes played, they took the lead when a James Ketchen corner was met at the front post by Neale Smith, who flicked the ball with his foot into the bottom corner.

As the half went on, both teams had good chances to score.

On 38 minutes, the ball broke to one of the Dalgety Bay strikers and he ran through to shoot from the edge of the box, but his effort went wide of the target.

After 44 minutes, a nice through ball from David Young found Craig Cameron inside the box. He beat his defender and shot low but his effort was well saved.

PIttenweem started the second half in the same manner as the first and they got goal number two when Liam Tarvit played the ball into the box and Neale Smith shot high into the net from around 12 yards.

The visitors were now finding it hard to get into the game, with Pittenweem playing some good stuff and dominating possession of the ball.

It was no real surprise when the third goal was scored after 19 minutes when Mike Gardner received a pass in midfield and chipped a lovely ball over the Bay defence.

Craig Cameron was on hand to control it on the edge of the penalty area and shoot into the corner of the net.

Rovers now looked to add to their goal tally and they had a number of crosses that were just too far ahead of the onrushing players.

The Dalgety Bay ‘keeper was also making some good saves to keep the score down.

Pittenweem came very close to a fourth goal as Neale Smith almost got his hat-trick when he headed just past from a corner.

They had further chances when a Mike Gardner shot was well saved and a great move involving James Ketchen, Neale Smith and Marc Cameron ended with Cameron shooting just past from a wide angle.

Rovers did make it 4-0 with when Marc Cameron played through to Craig Cameron and the striker chipped the ball over the ‘keeper.

Saturday’s ball was sponsored by Clarkson Hamilton Solicitors, Kirkcaldy.
