Brechin City 0 Cowdenbeath 3 (0-3)

PostedMay 16, 2010

The people of Cowdenbeath will wake on Sunday morning and realise it was not all a dream.

Cowdenbeath Football Club started off the season as relegation favourites but, thanks to the remarkable efforts of Danny Lennon and his team, will proudly take its place in the Irn-Bru First Division next season alongside Dunfermline Athletic and Raith Rovers after the Blue Brazil clinched promotion to the second tier of Scottish football for the first time since the early 90s.

The seemingly impossible was achieved after a 3-0 win at Glebe Park secured a comprehensive aggregate win and back-to-back promotions.

The opening exchanges were even with both Charlie King and Paul McQuade denied by the woodwork but Lennon's team opened the scoring after 17 minutes and never looked back. Scott McBride took a corner from the right and his delivery was perfect for Joe Mbu to glance the ball home from close range.

Cowden showed their class from there on in and it was no surprise when Gareth Wardlaw doubled the advantage after 25 minutes. David Scott made a fantastic save from Paul McQuade but Cowden's top scorer was well placed to head home the second.

A third goal was inevitable and it came with seconds remaining before the interval. Scott Linton put in a sublime delivery from the left and Wardaw outjumped Mark Docherty to head home.

Cowden had lost a three goal half-time lead during their last visit to Glebe Park but there was no danger of a repeat this time.

Around a thousand Blue Brazilians made the trip north with the hundreds on the pitch at full-time celebrating with their heroes. Special days like this don't come often but when they do you savour every moment.

It really did happen. We can all start dreaming again and look forward to dancing on the streets of Raith again!

It was just like watching Brazil!
