World News – GB – Hamilton rises to fan fury after humiliating loss to Annan

Fans react as Brian Rice's side stunned at Galabank

Hamilton Accies’ Betfred Cup Group F campaign started a nightmare with a humiliating 3-1 loss to Ligue 2 side Annan

Goals from Steven Swinglehurst, Tyler Fulton and Jack Purdue in the first half got Annan sailing before Scott McMann hit six minutes into the second half to secure consolation

This is the third game in a row Annan has knocked out the Lanarkshire side, after claiming a 1-0 win in the 2018 edition of the competition and a landslide 4-1 win under boss Jim Chapman in of the Scottish Cup in 2016

However, tonight’s result was all the more infuriating as the Borders were in their first competitive game in seven months.

Accies had made nine appearances of the season for Thios before the game at Galabank and fielded a strong side, but their hosts have always proved too strong

@stodmeister said: « It’s totally embarrassing, against a lower league team having their first competitive game of the season It’s probably worse than the last time we were humiliated by them »

Stephen D (@Accies_stephen) posted: « 3-0 in the first half against this opposition suggests a problem with the set-up, the selection or the state of mind with which the team is sent And all these problems rest on Rice « 

After Accies struck out, @Craig_Grn commented: « Score another 9 and it still won’t crush the first half

At halftime, James Wallace said: « I really can’t believe Kilmarnock [who had to give up their 3-0 Cup game against Falkirk] will have a better night than us tonight »

Hamilton returns to action on Saturday for their second group game with Ayr United, who beat Albion Rovers 5-2 at Cliftonhill
