BANNOCKBURN Amateurs secured a dramtic 5-3 home league win against Drumchapel Amateurs after recovering from a disappointing first half.

The visitors took the lead after 15 minutes with a 14 yard snap shot from left back. Within three minutes Darren Walker had a good chance to put Burn level and seemed to make the wrong choice.

Next came a header half chance for Barry Evans. Burn pressed for the equaliser with chances for Jazz Donaldson, Nick McIntosh and Steven Knox. Then in injury time Drumchapel doubled their lead.

Burn came out with renewed conviction and within two minutes a Jazz Donaldson shot needed saving. Jazz hit the bar next from a free kick.

Drum squandered a gilt edged chance as it would surely have put the game out of Burn's reach.

Burn then found their shooting boots and on 55 minutes Darren Walker scored following a cross from Nick McIntosh.

Two minutes later a classic goal from the Graham Taylor coaching manual as keeper David Tait’s kick found Jazz D who skipped in and slotted home the equaliser.

Unfortunately, moments later Drum in the lead again 2-3.

On the hour, some nice interplay, a Walker cross, header won by McIntosh and Knox took the moment to concentrate on making sure his half volley stayed low and hard. Goal.

Next brothers David and Jazz Donaldson combined to catch Drum statuesque. Jazz scored to make it 4-3.

Michael Weir came on for Nick McIntosh after 75 minutes. Quickly followed by the best goal of the day with a bending cultured shot from Knox making it 5-3.

Jazz Donaldson and Walker off for Alan Eastwood and Ross Cavanagh.

Burn saw the game out for another good win.

Lucky numbers this week 23, 24, 25. No winners so it rolls over again. Thanks to the Tartan Arms for post-match hospitality.

Everyone sends best wishes to three Bannockburn players, Gary Currie, Kenny McLellan and Andy McGown who may receive international caps this weekend at Hampden.
