It was an historic day for the club, participating in the second round of the William Hill Scottish Cup for the first time in their first season as a Senior club.
It was made all the more interesting when they were drawn against the side that many regard as the hallmark for non-league football in Scotland, Auchinleck Talbot.
Having won 5 of the last 10 Scottish Junior Cups (3 in the last 5) and the last 3 West Region Premier Superleague titles there was certainly no question over the quality of their Junior opponents, but it would be a fine opportunity for the Colts squad to show how far they have come in 4 short months as a new group of players.
At a busy Broadwood the men in yellow certainly did just that, winning 2-0 on the day with the visitors keeper having two outstanding saves in the second half also.
They now take their place in the third round at the first time of asking, a magnificent feat and well deserved reward for all those who have worked so hard behind the scenes to get the club to this level, as well as the players and staff in the first team squad.
Elsewhere there was a bit of dissapointment around the Lowland League, with East Kilbride going to a replay the only other side still with a chance to Join the Colts in the Round 3 pot:
Stirling Albion/East Fife (replay)
