SCOTTISH CUP SECOND ROUND

PETERHEAD 9-0 COLVILLE PARK

POST MATCH REACTION

 

Peterhead manager Jim McInally:

“I thought in the first half, we were really professional and went about our business well and it was just good to get amongst the goals.”

“We showed Colville a lot of respect but I felt we played some good stuff and I am just delighted to get through.”

“This tie was a bit of a banana skin and a trip into the unknown but apart from a 10-15 minute spell at the start of the second half, I was happy and I was especially pleased with how we finished the game.”

“I was delighted with a lot of the individual performances and it was good to see Rory back in amongst the goals. He is quite good at scoring five in cup ties.”

“The Scottish Cup is as exciting for us as it is for Colville.”

“Although this was their cup final here, we are hoping to get a cup final of our own by pulling out one of the big guns, if we can get through the next round.”

 

Colville manager Michael Kennedy:

“We started off quite well but as the game developed, you saw the class that Peterhead have got.”

“You saw the gulf in the standard of players but we need to recognise that in Scottish football, Peterhead are about eight or nine leagues above us.”

“It has still been a fantastic achievement to get this far and a great day out and I need to recognise how professional and welcoming Peterhead have been towards us, although the result is very disappointing.”

“At our level of football, we are a very, very successful club and we have won our Scottish Cup the last two seasons in a row.”

“Nine times out of 10 we have a successful season and we have started this campaign well but ultimately this scoreline will not define how we are judged.”

“It has just been a great achievement to get this far but now we will focus back on our own level of football and hopefully win another Scottish Amateur Cup and League.”
