Largs Thistle legend George Wall writes for the News about football matters local, national and international...

Largs got a great result on Saturday with a 4-2 win over Gartcairn - and it was great to see my 35s team-mate Darryl Duffy on the scoresheet with a double. The win moves Largs above Gartcairn into ninth place in the league table. 

Next up is Rob Roy at Barrfields, and on paper at least, it’s three points for Largs. Rob Roy are in the group of five at the bottom who, for me, are in danger of relegation with three going down. At the top of the table both Clydebank and Beith drew against St Cadoc’s and Pollok respectively.

I know Beith were disappointed at dropping two points, thinking they created enough to win the game. With Clydebank coming back from 2-0 down I guess they must have been happy with the draw.

This weekend I am back in the Northern Ireland 60s squad for a tournament in Newcastle, County Down, against England, Wales and Denmark.

England look to be favourites for the tournament, with Denmark being an unknown. Our build-up to the tournament has not been great with us having lost both our goalies due to injury. Let me tell you it’s not easy getting a goalie that is over 60!

We play three games in three days, starting Friday against Wales. On Saturday it's Denmark and on Sunday it’s England. I really hope I am flying home with another medal tucked up in my bag. If we do win, it will be three in a row.

I met another Northern Ireland international player last week, now the assistant manager of the Northern Ireland senior team, Jimmy Nicholl. Jimmy wished the squad well and he only hoped he was fit enough to play. It was great talking to Jimmy, who played 73 times for Northern Ireland - who of course are playing at Hampden on March 26.

Finally this week, hats off to Derek McInnes’s Kilmarnock team at the weekend, scoring five goals in 18 minutes against St Mirren after being 2-0 down. How good was that?
