    Seaboard Cup opener sees Tain tumble out

    Depleted, short of key players and continuing a trend of under-performing this season, Tain Thistle were hammered at Cromarty by 8 goals to 3, as the Jags watched another chance at silverware vanish, in the first round of the Seaboard Cup.<br /><br />First half reply from Darran Goller and a penalty from Liam Rostock pulled the issue back to 4-2 at half time before Cromarty knocked a further four goals beyond Matheson in the second half. John Maclellan scored Tain's only goal of the second half.<br /><br />The result is Thistle's worst since July 2005, when they were on the receiving end of a 10-3 thrashing at the hands of eventual league winners Invergordon Social Club. Thistle went on to finish 2nd in the league that year however.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Matheson, Sutherland (C Nimmons), Johnston, Stewart, Farquhar, Brand, Cameron, Goller, Burry, Rostock, Maclellan<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />Shearer<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Goller 20, Rostock pen 42, Maclellan 50<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />Burry, Farquhar
