In the British Cup, the first Semi-Final took place, which was a cross-border match between Scotland’s Fir Park Corner (Motherwell Supporters) and England’s Preston North End Supporters.

Unfortunately for them, the streak ended despite scoring 3 goals, as the game ended 3-6 to Preston North End Supporters. Graeme McMahon, Mark Preston and Jake Glancy got a goal each for the Scots, however Preston’s Badam scored a hat-trick, Ollie got a brace and Ian McGrail also got a goal to complete the scoring.
