Ammies began brightly and were ahead inside five minutes when Achref Ghamni opened the scoring against his former team mates with a neat lobbed shot over the Town glovesman.

There were two more half-chances before the break, but neither Danny Gould or Colin Gourlay could apply a finish and Ammies went into the interval with a 1-0 lead.

In the second half Town pressed more and Fulls failed with a couple of chances before he slipped his way past a couple of defenders before tucking the ball past Ammies keeper Hazell to make it 1-1.

A change in midfield for Ammies then helped to steady things. Robbie Lambert was outstanding in the middle third for Ammies who nearly won it late on when a Ghamni shot struck the post and then rolled across the goal line and away before being cleared.

Both managers after the game said it was played in good spirit and a draw was a fair result in the end. Ammies now take their unbeaten start to the season into this weekend’s home meeting with Newtown.
