Forfar West End are through to the next round of the GA Engineering Cup after a 3-0 win over in-form Brechin Vics.

Scott Fullerton, formerly of Vics, rounded the Brechin goalie and put West End ahead inside the first minute.

Graeme Hart slotted home from 12 yards and, as an ex-Vics man himself, kept the celebrations muted.

Fullerton added his second and West End’s third when he converted a cross from player-manager Daryl McKenzie.

Up next is a tie against Super League side Carnoustie Panmure.

Kirrie Thistle’s terrible run of form continued on Saturday as they went down 4-0 to promotion-chasing Luncarty in league action.

Prolific striker Anderson had the ball in the net after a few minutes but it was chalked off for offside.

But the big frontman didn’t have to wait long before he found the goal again as he fired in at the second attempt after seeing Knox save his initial header.

He grabbed his second of the match shortly after, helping Nicol’s goal-bound cross into the goal with his head.

The second half saw things go from bad to worse for Thistle when on the hour they were reduced to 10 men, captain Robbie George shown red for bringing down Anderson who was through on goal. The hosts were then reduced further, Ogg the offender this time, sent off for a second yellow after a ball struck his arm.

Luncarty got a third and fourth before the close, adding to Kirrie’s misery and condemning them to their third league defeat at home.

Thistle now face Lochee Harp in the GA Engineering Cup next week.

Forfar Albion were also defeated in league action, losing 3-1 at home to Kennoway Star Hearts.

In the amateurs, Lowson United dropped two points after leading 3-1 with 20 minutes to go, ultimately drawing 3-3 with Barnhill.

Barnhill were awarded two late penalties as they came from behind to secure a point.

Lowson goalscorers were J Duncan, C Howie and G Farquharson.
