Dundonald  0   -   Tranent  2      

                                                                           

This was Dundonald's last game of the season and a victory over Tranent would ensure they finished in third place. Tranent had a strong wind at their backs in the first half and the home side found

themselves under severe pressure in the early stages of this game. With twenty minutes on the clock the visitors took the lead  when they headed home from a free kick. Dundonald looked out of sorts at this point but Smith did well to get the ball under control inside the Tranent box but the striker was out numbered and the chance was lost. There was abit of good fortune about the visitors second goal when a shot from outside the box was picked up by the wind and flew into the top corner off the net. Walton almost reduced the defict but his shot, from the edge of the box, was well saved.

Half Time 0-2

A rollicking at half time from the Dundonald management team certainly made a difference because it was the home side who was on the front foot in this half and it was Tranent who were struggling to get out their own half. The front two for Dundonald Wilson then Smith both saw their efforts well saved before Gay put a header just over the bar. A goal looked to be on the cards but the Tranent defence held firm.

This was disappointing way to end the season but Dundonald should be proud that they managed to secure their place in next seasons SuperLeague because this was not a easy league to qualify from.
