Football columnist and Largs Thistle legend George Wall writes for the 'News'... 

It was a poor result for Largs Thistle to go out of the Scottish so early after the highs of last season. 
It’s a bodyblow to the club and the only thing to do now is go out and win the next game. 
I was not at the game but feedback I got was that it was a poor performance and the better team won. See picture below by Ryan Scott Photography.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
Arnie freshened the team up. However for me, no matter who played, they should still have been good enough to progress. 
Although disappointed the fans need to stick behind the team and continue to turn up to the games.
Looking through the full list of results Largs and the Kilbirnie defeat to Gartcairn stick out as the surprises. 
Kilbirnie manager Liam McGuiness resigned after the game albeit it seems he was resigning win or lose. 
Liam was a good young manager. I am sorry to see him go. Arnie should be on the phone to Liam asking him to come as a player as he would add value to the team and would give that experience which is needed. 
I also see that after defeat to Beith one of my ex teammates Peter Leonard has resigned as Whitletts manager.
* Friday night football in Inverclyde going well with another large crowd for the Port Glasgow v Greenock Juniors following on from the big crowd a month ago in the reverse fixture, Port running out 1-0 winners with a goal from ex-Largs captain Barry McLaughlin. 
It would be good if Barrfields had floodlights to get a night game on in Largs.
* There are question marks over the new VAR system..
During Man City v Aston Villa, and Arsenal v Crystal Place fixtures there was yet more controversy. There is a growing feeling that the new video replay system is ruining the game, and it is difficult to disagree. 
These guys are all watching the same replays of the incident on hi tech equipment and still can’t agree. 
Goal line technology and off the ball incidents is all it should be used for at this time.
* One of my mates Craig McPherson currently assistant at Dumbarton and Youth Coach at Rangers tells me there is a feel good factor at Ibrox not only due to the first team results but also because the development teams are doing well. Seems the Stevie G factor is working right across the club.
Rangers and Celtic are nip and tuck at the top of the SPL, both winning but Celtic made it look easy against Aberdeen while Rangers had a bigger fight to get the three points. It is going to be interesting over the course of the season to see if Rangers can really mount a challenge.
* Leicester 9-0 winners against Southampton, what a crazy score in the so called best league in the world but how could it happen? I know Southampton had a man sent off but it was a ridiculous scoreline. 
I remember playing in the 10-0 defeat for Largs v Beith the season we won the Scottish.
We started the game with eight players - we did not have a recognised goalie to start with and no matter how much we tried to shut up shop the goals just kept going in.
Southampton only had one man sent off - it just seems a crazy score!
