Cumbernauld V Dunfermline A, Dunfermline's final league match of the 2009/2010 season.

This match was played Monday the 19th April at the Muirfield Community Education Centre, Brown Road, Seafar, Cumbernauld. 

After a round tour of Cumbernauld's roadworks, the Dunfermline team arrived to find that  Cumbernauld had split their strength over two teams. Cumbernauld were trying to win their Lanarkshire league match and so had 3 of their A team players diverted to that team. The team left to face Dunfermline contained 3 regular Central League players and were out graded on every board. Unfortunately, one of those players failed to turn up and Cumbernauld were very soon 1-0 down.    

Half way into the match it looked like a 5-0 victory was on the cards, however, good play and mistakes on both sides resulted in a 3.5-1.5 victory to Dunfermline. Cumbernauld did manage to draw their other match 2-2.
