The Hoose progressed to round 2 of the King Cup with a hard fought entertaining fixture against league 2 side Lochgelly Albert FC

Goals from Kirwan and Duffy put the Hoose 2-0 up but Lochgelly pulled one back with the award of a penalty when Lowden was penalised for bringing down the Fifes side striker within the box.

HT 2-1

The Hoose started the 2nd half brightly extending their lead to 3-1 only for Lochgelly to pull another back following the award of a free kick for a dubious hand ball outside the box.


The game was final put out of Lochgellys reach when some fine play saw debutant Danny McDonald fire home from just outside the box to take the Hoose tally to 4 on the day.

Final score

Fauldhouse United FC 4-2 Lochgelly Albert FC

The Hoose march on to the next round and we wish Lochgelly all the best for the rest of the season
