It was a week of mixed fortunes for Dalziel's Caledonian team.

On Wednesday under the floodlights at Dalziel Park, Dalziel faced last years league champions Dumbarton Acad FP and recorded a fantastic 5 -1 victory. Two goals in the first 10 minutes set up the win, firstly a wonder strike from 30 yards by Darren Ferguson, was followed by Craig Mcleod forcing the ball home from close range. The lead was extended just before half time when a visiting defender placed a passback beyond his own keeper for an og.
Dumbarton had to chase the game in the second half but this merely allowed Dalziel more space to play, and it was no surprise that the home team created chance after chance. The fourth goal arrived when Paul Crumley drove to the bye line and cut the ball across goal for Paul Connolly to finish. With 10 minutes left a move involving Iain Clark, and Paul Crumley released Graham Donaldson who crahed the ball home. The visitors scored a consolation goal in the last minute.

On Saturday, however Dalziel crashed out of the Scottish Amateur cup, beaten 3 -2 away to Redbrae Ams. Redbrae took the lead after half an hour when slack marking allowed a free header from 6 yards. Dalziel equalised on the stroke of half time when Paul Crumley looped home a header from a David Jackson corner. Dalziel had the first chance of the second half, the home keeper making a wonderful save from a Robert Sharp shot, but Redbrae moved two goals ahead within the first 20 minutes of the second half. Dalziel did get themselves back into the game when Darren Ferguson fired home a Graham Donaldson cross to set up a storming final 20 minutes. A combination of tremendous goalkeeping and bad luck thwarted Dalziel, even with the very last move of the game Gerry Jamieson moved forward to head over a difficult swerving cross from Colm McGarry.
