A fantastic second half performance from Academy saw them come from a goal behind against visitors Whitehill Welfare, running out 4-1 winners, to book their place in the 3rd round of the William Hill Scottish Cup. The draw takes place on Tuesday at 6pm.

The visitors took the lead after 18 minutes through Scott McCulloch. A screamer from James Pickles 8 minutes after the re-start took the scores level before two penalties from Sam Mackay within the space of 10 minutes turned the game. Richard Macadie came on as a sub on 83 minutes and scored with a cracking strike with his first kick of the ball. Macadie could have grabbed a brace but had a penalty saved by keeper Bryan Young.

Indiscipline from Whitehill saw them finish the game with only eight men and three further bookings.

Academy started playing up the Harmsworth slope and set-out at a good tempo. Within 7 minutes they created the first chance of the game when Steven Anderson flashed a drive just passed keeper Bryan Young's right hand post.

A minute later James Pickles had the ball in the net for the Scorries but it didn't stand, ruled off-side.

Whitehill broke from an Academy free-kick on the edge of their own box. Scott Gormley set the attack off with Connor McGregor teeing up Scott McCulloch and from fully 30 yards out his right foot shot cracked off the face of Michael MacCallum's right hand post before running across the goal-line and out for a goal-kick.

In the next attach Whitehill opened the scoring. Kevin Keane dinked a ball through to the powerful McCulloch who held off Grant Steven and ran in on goal. MaCallum came to narrow the angle and he managed to get a foot on McCulloch's low shot but it wasn't enough to stop the ball trundling over the line just inside his right hand post.

0 - 1

Davie Allan burst through the Whitehill defence but could only shoot straight to keeper Young and minutes later Young was again on-hand this time making a great save from James Pickles. Pickles had been played into the heart of the box by Sam Mackay and he must have thought he'd scored, but Young did fantastically well from close range to get a right foot out to block Pickles attempt.

Welfare could only half clear a corner that fell to Gary Manson just outside the box. He fired in a shot that John Williams blocked with his elbow and he was booked for his efforts. Sam Mackay curled the free-kick over the wall and Young dived to his right to make another good stop pushing the ball wide of target.

Academy were forced to make a change with Grant Steven coming off injured and he was replaced by Andrew Hardwick.
