Match Summary A coachload from Rosyth dockyard see their team go five points clear at the top. Broadis fired home, but Froggatt’s header and the returning Reid’s left footer turned the game. Mapson’s flap at Harris’ cross left Phillips with an easy job, before Reid fired home through a crowded box.
