Rhu Amateurs racked up one of their biggest ever scorelines to progress in the Scottish Amateur Cup. 

A flurry of goals at Ardenconnel saw Rhu safely into the third round of the competition as they ran out 14-1 winners against Kinnoull Red.

Kinnoull made the long trip from Perth and arrived to find the home park in pristine condition after some great work from volunteer grounds person Andrew Stewart.

Rhu started the match in very confident mood after their 6-0 victory in the league last week and soon began to take control of the game with some slick passing and a high press that was giving the away team plenty of problems.

It was new sighing Wallace who grabbed the opening goal and the first of his hat trick with a cool finish below the keeper.

It was soon 2-0 when Paterson dispossessed the defender and finished with ease. Evans then turned scorer after assisting the first two  with a powerful header into the net.

Paterson and Wallace then got the 4th and 5th respectively before veteran Phillips turned back the clock with a delightful lob over the keeper to make 6-0 at half time.

The half-time team talk from manager Gordon Brodie demanded more of the same and Rhu came out flying in the second half.

Wallace got his hat trick with a fine volley before Paterson soon followed suit with another well taken goal for his hat trick to make it 8-0.

A raft of substitutions were then made but this didn’t affect the home side. Substitute McCann got in on the act from the bench with a calm finish to start his day off.

Dods grabbed his first of the day after playing a one-two with the post after an unlucky free kick to make it 10-0.

Rhu then blotted their copybook with some very slack defending and it gave the away side their consolation goal.

Substitute Welsh then made it 11-1 before Dods got his 2nd of the game. McCann then scored two quick fire goals to complete his impressive hat trick from the bench to complete the scoring.

Manager Brodie said: "This was a hugely impressive performance from the whole squad who played with a high intensity throughout and played some lovely football.

"Credit to Kinnoull who didn’t let their heads drop and played the game in the right manner.

"Thanks to the crowd that once again turned out in big numbers to support the lads, it was greatly appreciated.

"The result was actually the highest scoring victory in the Scottish Cup nationally on the day and was one of the biggest victories to date for the boys.

"It gives the boys a great boost leading into Saturday huge match away to high flying Drumchapel Amateurs in the league.

"Thanks once again to all the club sponsors and especially the Rosslea Hall for the pre match breakfast for the boys, Robert Ryan from the Brae Shop for the match ball sponsorship and Callaghan’s Butcher for the post match hospitality."
