Blackburn United 1
McQuillan 27mins
Craigshill Thistle 1

With one trialist in the starting XI and one on the bench and making an appearance midway through the second half, as well as a return to action for Jimmy Sommerville, United had a slightly experimental look in this midweek friendly, particularly in that second period when several substitutions were made, and were behind early when a cross into the box wasn’t properly cleared and a Thistle striker took full advantage. However, moments before the half hour mark Aaron Gowans broke through the centre of midfield and slid a pass in front of Andy McQUILLAN who angled a shot past the visiting keeper and in off the far post for the equaliser.

Blackburn United Line-Up: Mitchell, Gowans, Wilson (Meekison 50), Mildren (Woodhouse 50), Lawrie, Mackie (Trialist - Clancy 69), Cormack, Trialist – Henderson (Williamson 63), Macarthur (Sommerville 75), Campbell, McQuillan

Referee: Mr. Iain Snedden
