A VERY makeshift Beith side couldn’t be faulted for effort but ultimately lost out 3-1 to a strong Pollok side.

The visitors took the lead from a corner when Boyle, who appeared to climb on John Sheridan, headed down for Stuart McCann to head home close in.

The hosts had to play an hour with 10 men when a Kevin Green challenge on McCann was harshly considered to be worthy of a red card from a decision made by the assistant who oddly didn’t seem to have any better view of the incident than the referee.

Stefan McLuskey then headed home for 'Lok. Veteran striker Kenny McLean slotted away a penalty after he was flattened in the box by Gallagher who somehow saw yellow instead of red.

Pollok bagged a decisive third goal with eight minutes left through Ryan McGregor.

Kilbirnie Ladeside drew 1-1 at home to Clydebank, with David Ramsay on target.

Ardeer went down 2-1 at St Anthony's.

Sixteen-year-old striker Lewis Dean netted with a superb lob in seven minutes.

However Ants levelled in 93 minutes when a a throw into the penalty are was headed on by Stephen McGarrigle and although Shaun Gallacher's attempted volley was surely an attempt on goal, the ball came through to Williams who lashed home.
