Ton Win Big

Morton have recorded big wins in their two most recent pre-season friendlies. In their second and final game in Obertraun they beat Austrian fourth division side Salzburg Sport Club 1914 (known as SAK1914 in their homeland) 8-1. The goals were scored by Ryan McGuffie (4), Brian Wake (2), Stevie Masterton and Brian Graham (who scored a penalty).

Acccording to the Greenock Telegraph the team lined up as follows: Cuthbert, Walker, Greacen, McManus, Paartalu, Masterton, MacFarlane, McGuffie, Wake, Weatherson, McAlister. The substitutes were: Stewart, Graham, Monti, Strachan, Finlayson.

It has been widely reported that SAK 1914 play in the equivalent of the Austrian 3rd division. However, after a bit of research I've found they play in the 1. Salzburger Bundesliga - a Salzburg regional league that along with two other leagues filters into the broader regional league central above. It is, in effect, one of nine divisions which all operate at the fourth level of Austrian football.

More recently we beat third division Stranraer 10-0 in a bounce match played in Glasgow last night. greenockmorton.org poster and occasional greenockmortonfc.blogspot.com contributor Toby posted on the unofficial messageboard to say that the goalscorers were Graham (2), Weatherson (2), Monti, McAlister, Wake and 3 goals from trialists.
