Onesimo Murube had a good debut for Brook Street, despite having only signed last night

Brook Street Athletic have bowed out of this season’s Scottish Cup, having lost 0-1 away to WKD Ladies FC in this morning’s Tayside derby.

Daniele Corvucci’s sixty-third minute strike was enough to settle the tie, but Athletic will be ruing a number of chances that were squandered, in particular Kyle Fair’s gilt-edged chance to level with seven minutes remaining.

“It was a very tight game and once they scored, they shut up shop”, said Arjen afterwards. He continued, “We still managed to create chances though, but a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing meant that we didn’t take any of them”.

He added, “I’m not going to make the usual statement about, ‘now we will be able to concentrate on the league’ as I’m really disappointed that we’ve been knocked out of the cup at an early stage”.

New signing Onesimo Murube made his debut for the club, coming on at half-time for Al Caird and put in a solid performance as the coach highlighted.

“It’s very difficult to come into a new team less than a day after signing and get up to speed quickly, but Onesimo is a quality player, and I feel that he really didn’t look out of place”.

“He didn’t get any breaks in the game, but his link-up play was very good, and I’m sure he’ll do well for us”.
