Eyüphan Toga levels the scores, but two second half goals saw Swans through.

Brook Street’s record-breaking Scottish Cup run came to an end this morning at New Home Park, as Swansea ran out 3-1 winners. However heads can be held high as they went down fighting and can be justifiably proud of their achievement.

When Dillon Lennon opened for Swans after only ten minutes, many feared the worst, but Eyüphan Toga’s leveller just four minutes later certainly calmed nerves both on the park and in the stands. Brook Street continued to match their League 2 opponents, and deserved to go in tied at the break.

However it was a different story in the second half as Swans really turned the screw and two goals from Phil Kingston saw the League 2 side safely through to the next round.

At full-time, far from being disappointed, Marcus said, “We’ve gone toe to toe with a very good League 2 side, and while we’ve lost on the day, we can hold our heads up high as we acquitted ourselves very well”.

He continued, “Everyone played their part, and they can be proud to have written themselves into the history of this club. Now we must focus on the league campaign, although I believe we are now entered into the Thistle Cup”.

That Thistle Cup campaign starts next week against League V side saints are coming when we enter in the Sixth Round. The match will be played next Wednesday at Starks Park, Kirkcaldy with a 10:45 kick-off.
