Lochee United have moved to thank supporters for the massive turnout at Thomson Park at the weekend.
Around 2,000 people descended on Dryburgh to see The Bluebells attempt to make the Scottish Junior Cup final by conquering giants Auchinleck Talbot.
Despite a 1-0 first leg win, the Ayrshire side were just too strong for Lochee winning 2-0 on the day.
The game, due to kick off at 2.30pm, had to be delayed by around 15 minutes due to huge queues of supporters waiting to get in the ground.
United held on in the first half amid continued pressure from Talbot.
However, George Shields’ side caved late on with two quick fire goals.
A powerful header from Dwayne Hyslop opened the scoring before Ross Harvey slotted home from a loose ball in the box almost immediately after the first.
Issuing a statement following the game, Lochee United thanked the local community for its backing.
It read: “The result in our Scottish Junior Cup Semi Final against Auchinleck Talbot was obviously a great disappointment to us all.
“Many thanks to the players and management team for their efforts in taking the club to this stage of the competition.
“Congratulations to Auchinleck for a game well played and good luck in the final.
“The club would like to take this opportunity to say a massive, heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to the people of Dundee and further afield who got behind Lochee United in the most amazing show of support.
“It was an incredible turnout and a true testament to the community spirit of local people.
“The dream may be over for this season, but we will be back next year.”
