Brook Street created a piece of history this morning as their 4-1 win over Kobis at New Home Park saw them reach the Hattrick Scottish Cup Sixth Round for the first time.

With both sides fielding their first teams, the match raged from end to end in front of the noisy 47,909 crowd. The first chance fell to the visitors but Corey Dearmouth slammed the ball against the post when it seemed easier to score.

This was to prove costly six minutes from the break when Brook Street captain Leoš Loos fired home the opening goal from close range.

Germán Olmos Ribas broke through to double Brook Street’s lead in the sixty-fifth minute, and Leoš rose high to power home a header seven minutes later to make the tie all but safe.

But back came Kobis, and Charlie Arran pulled a goal back with eleven minutes remaining, but it was to be too little too late, and Jake MacConnechy hammered the final nail into the coffin with six minutes to go.

“We were absolutely superb this morning”, beamed a delighted Marcus Lővman at full-time. “We knew they’d field a very strong side, so we thought we’d match up and go for it”.

He continued, “The lads have created history this morning and we can’t wait to see who we get in the draw”.

This afternoon, that Sixth Round draw saw us paired with League II side Swansea FC.

“It will be a huge test for us”, admitted Marcus on hearing the draw, “as they’re flying high in their division and are on a long unbeaten run. We however have a tremendous team spirit and regularly punch well above our weight. With this in mind, it’s certain to be a great game”.

He added, “It’s sure to be a very big crowd, and we can’t wait until next week”.

The match at Brockville United’s 111,291 capacity Kevin McAllister Stadium in Falkirk takes place next Wednesday with a 1030 kick-off.
