Auchinleck Talbot manager Tommy Sloan applauded his side’s second half attacking masterclass as they beat Irvine Meadow 5-1 at the weekend.

Despite the convincing end scoreline, it was actually Medda who started the Premier Division match on the front foot.

They took the lead after just three minutes at Meadow Park through a diving header from inform midfielder Michael Wardrope.

The away side rallied however and grabbed an equaliser just before the break to level.

A cross found forward Bryan Boylan in the box, who expertly curled the ball into the bottom right corner with his first touch.

Talbot then went all out in the second half and took the lead one minute after the restart.

Bot hit Meadow on the counter attack and a mistake from the Medda backline saw Mark Shankland clean through on goal.

The attacker then rounded Marc Waters and tapped into the back of the net to score.

Boylan then added to their lead not long after with a bullet header for his second of the match.

The Bot then got their fourth of the afternoon with 25 minutes to go, Aiden Wilson heading in a rebound at the back post.

Graham Wilson then unleashed a powerful drive from distance which flew into the back of the Meadow net to complete the scoring.

Speaking to the Chronicle, Sloan said: “I am pleased to have scored five goals anywhere but a trip to Meadow Park is always a tough fixture, so I am delighted.

“We have not scored a lot of goals this year, we have struggled to be free flowing and score as many as we would like.

“But once we equalised in the first half, there was a confidence about the players as we got ourselves back into the game.

“That really showed in the second half, I felt the team looked a far more confident bunch in possession of the ball.

“For 20 minutes just after half time we played really well with some good stuff.

“We carved out a number of chances and managed to take a few as well, so I am really pleased.”
