After 2 and a half weeks since our last game the team returned to match action this afternoon as we hosted St Andrews United at the Canniepairt. After a cagey first 20 minutes from both sides Tayport found their rhythm and opened the scoring through Ryan Paterson in the 23rd minute, 3 minutes later Tayport were two up as Jamie McCabe headed home. Tayport continued to dominate the rest of the first half and Paterson got his second of the match a minute before half time. Much of the second half was played in the middle of the park and there were not many chances created by either side in the second half. With 5 minutes to play Jamie Gill got on the score sheet after previously hitting the post minutes earlier. A convincing 4-0 victory for the Port this afternoon, a week before the league season begins, but before then the team travel to Thornton Hibs on Tuesday evening for our final pre-season friendly.
