Leoš Loos catches out Raiders’ keeper Alessandro Prasciolu at his near post to net Brook Street’s first goal.

Brook Street secured their first points of the new league season with an excellent 3-1 win over Aberdeen Raiders at a rain lashed New home Park yesterday.

Goals from Leoš Loos and Andrew Cleary had Brook Street cruising with only half an hour played, but although the visitors got themselves back into the game with a Ciro Mega strike eight minutes from time, Leoš Loos quickly dispelled any thoughts of a fightback with his second goal of the game a minute later.

“It was a very good performance from the lads in horrendous conditions”, said the coach at the post-match press conference. “We controlled the game and used the flanks very well”, he added.

“It’s just a shame that so few spectators were here to see it, but that was always going to be the case on such a horrible day”. He continued, “We’ve got that all important win under our belts now, so now we’ve got to kick on and build on it”.

And what better way to do it next weekend than by a visit to the early pacesetters Brahms & Liszt. Before that however is a Tartan Cup tie away to Division V side Freakville United on Wednesday.

“We’ll probably stick with the reserves for the Cup game, although we’ll be fielding a more conventional line-up for this”, admitted the Coach.

Elsewhere yesterday, Vines Cross got off the mark with an impressive 4-1 win at home to 412225AHGC; Brahms & Liszt edged out Stellar Ayrshire 3-2 at Deepest Darkest Ayrshire; while Euclidean Dynamo and Slovan Braggislava shared the points with a 1-1 draw at the Slovan Braggislava Arena.
