Newtonmore v Lochaber

Report by The Strathy


Won 3-0

Newtonmore Manager PJ Mckintosh had three good reasons to be cheerful after seeing his team claim a comfortable 3-0 win over Lochaber.  The Eilan side looked by far the stronger team through-out in the Premier League fixture with Rory Kennedy firing in from close range for the opener on 29 minutes.  Glen Mackintosh then continued his goalscoring run after five minutes and Iain Robinson sealed the game in the 74th minute.

Afterwards, manager PJ Mackintosh said "I thoguht our defence was back to its best form of last season.  They were quick, covered for each other and distributed well.  We hit the bar and the post twice so it could easily have been a lot more and that would not have flattered us".
