Brook Street cruised into the Second Round of the Hattrick Scottish Cup this morning with a convincing 9-0 thumping of Lightsabers. Matt Cocker grabbed a hat-trick with Fraser Carragher, Alex Clapperton, Andy Harte, Krsto Grubić, Nemanja Janković and Sam Ferretto also finding the net.

“It was a real morale-booster of a result”, claimed Leoš Loos afterwards. “After our relegation, there was an air of despondency in the dressing room, and a win today was the only way to lift it”.

He added, “It was a real shot in the arm for the club as a whole and helped focus us again ahead of Saturday’s league opener.

Brook Street’s reward for the win is a Second Round tie away to The Gravy Spoons over the river in Fife.
