Coach Roddie Leitch said on Facebook after the match: “Great win today, solid first half performance, not a bad player for Bute today at all. Well done to Nico and Scott with the goals, well done to Ryan [Leitch] for a clean sheet, and well done to Max [Allan] for the miss of the season.

“Great to see the park busy again. Decent team and a decent referee makes all the difference.”
