After an amazing match full of incident Charscot failed to hold onto a lead giving up an equaliser in the 89th minute. The 4-4 draw was the highest Charscot have ever been involved in in their history and it was just a pity that there was only 12,000 people at Lammermuir Gardens to see this thriller.

As expected Charscot failed miserably at Paddock Road surrendering 3 goals and not putting up any sort of fight. In fact other than early bookings for Andy Petterson and Darren Stone the games fairly flew by and most of the travelling fans had left long before the final whistle.

Manager Rich Grove took all the blame saying he could hardly expect the player’s to put in too much effort when he had been so sceptical of the worthiness of this cup tie.

With league results of utmost importance and question marks still hanging over the goalkeeping staff at the club Rich Grove is looking at young Senegal international Jacques Songo’o from FC Porto. It is understood he would be available for £4mill and a decision is expected later in the week…


Charscot today took a deserved 3 points beating arch-rivals The Academy 3-1 in the local derby to move within 3 points of the league leaders.

Off the field 2 players joined the youth ranks today though the jury is out as to their potential long-term use to the club. Martin McFly and Serhat Akin were both signed when on the verge of signing for Premier League Space Cadets. The Cadet’s manager was unavailable for comment…
