BELLSHILL ATHLETIC manager Brian McGinty quit tonight ...

with the already-promoted Lanarkshire side sitting at the top of the Stagecoach Central First Division.

The former Rangers signing was unavailable for comment, but it is understood he met with his players to tell them he would not be at the club next season.

Blantyre Vics - who could yet pip Bellshill to the title - battled back from 3-0 down to beat Wishaw 5-3 in a dramatic Euroscot Eng Central League Cup third-round clash.

The home side looked to be on easy street after Kevin Barry Grant (2) and Nicky Moore found the net, but a hat-trick from Craig Smith, a strike from Michael Daly and a Davie Green own goal fired Davie Greig's men into the next round.

Yoker guaranteed their Super First Division safety - and relegated Irvine Vics in the process - with a 2-1 victory over Rob Roy at Guy's Meadow which ended the automatic promotion hopes of Stewart Maxwell's men.

Gary Arbuckle was the Whe Ho match-winner with a second-half brace, while Thomas Collins netted a late consolation for the Kirkintilloch side whose defeat means Shettleston are promoted as runners-up behind champions Pollok.

The Rabs will meet either Arthurlie or Shotts in a Super Premier Division play-off double-header on dates still to be confirmed.
