Arthurlie secured their first league win of the season as Michael Daly’s late header secured a 4-3 win over Kirkintilloch Rob Roy at Dunterlie Park on Saturday writes Robert Burns.

Before kick-off Arthurlie’s honorary president for the season, Jimmy McQuade, unfurled the club’s flag in what is the 20th anniversary of the season McQuade led Arthurlie to Scottish Cup glory.

Six minutes into the game and Arthurlie went in front as Marc McKenzie and curled a great free-kick from the edge of the box past the despairing dive from McKinven.

Five minutes later it was two, Chris Lennon made strides on the right before laying the ball back and Jordan Craig slipped the ball through to Daly who hit the ball across McKinven to double Arthurlie’s lead.

On the half hour Rob Roy were handed a great opportunity to get back into the game when Colin Spence was adjudged to have brought down MacKie in the area.

Fraser stepped up and hit the resulting penalty but Grant Hay guessed right and palmed the ball away to safety.

Whatever was said in the away dressing room at the interval seemed to have an effect because 10 minutes after the restart the hosts found themselves behind in a bizarre start to the second half.

First Fraser crossed from the right, the ball found MacKie inside the area and his mishit shot fell to Watt who fired home.

Three minutes later it was all square. Walker took a throw on the right to MacKie who gathered then turned onto his left before hitting a great shot past Hay to level the scores.

Lie side had gone from dominant to looking at sixes and sevens so it was no surprise when the visitors went ahead four minutes later.

Gallacher gathered possession deep inside his own half and raced, unchallenged, the length of the field before hitting a low shot from inside the box that came back off the upright, Watt was first to the rebound however and shot home to give Rob Roy the lead.

With 12 minutes to go Lie got the winner. Chris Walker hit a long diagonal to the opposite side of the penalty box where Daly rose highest to head home.
