YOUTH REPORTS

2003 – Caley 3-6 Talbot. An early mistake let Caley take the lead. The boys were trying hard to get the ball working for them but a bumpy pitch made it difficult and Caley nearly made it two but a brilliant save by Codie Bottell kept it at. Josh Jones then had it back to 1-1, followed by Kyle Shankland for 2-1. Josh then had a second to make it 3-1 and as half time approached things were looking good. Caley pulled one back though against the run of play and at 3-2 half time things were closer than they should have been. Josh then hit his third with a beauty of an effort that hit the inside of the post and in and claimed his third hat trick of the season and his 20th goal of the campaign to give Talbot a two goal cushion. Caley again though hit back and it was close for comfort again. Fresh legs were introduced and Talbot finally put it to bed Josh Jones scored his 4th and Michael Kane made certain with the 6th with a coolly taken finish. Man of the match Josh Jones. The lads are away next Saturday on a bus trip to play Hillwood thistle for the challenge cup.

 

2005 – Auchinleck Talbot 2005s were at home this week at Auchinleck Academy to face Valspar Athletico. Talbot instantly put on the pressure as soon as the ref blew his whistle for the start off the game with Valspar holding out in defence and the keeper pulling out some good saves. This didn’t last for long and Talbot had their breakthrough with Cody Gibson opening the scoring with a well worked team goal with some great passing from defence through to attack. The pressure continued and Cody Gibson again put Talbot two goals up then Calum Wilson and Josh Suiter made it four just before halftime. The confidence was high and Talbot couldn’t wait to get the second half started. Valspar tried to get back into the game and pulled back a goal but Talbot again put on the pressure with Cody Gibson scoring another four goals to put the game beyond Valspar. This was a very brilliant performance from Talbot 2005s… Well done boys from the coaching team!

 

2006 – Only one game for the 06’s due to the holiday period. Boswell were away from home this week against Troon thistle. Up against it a bit as both of our goalkeepers were away on holiday but Brayden Allan took over and had a good game in goal. We found ourselves behind by a few goals with some silly mistakes but the boys all pushed hard and were determined to get back into the game. Good goals scored by us with the pick of the bunch from Gavin Kirkland with a brilliant solo run and good finish. Some good football but our passing game seems to have went missing over the past few games and we will be concentrating on getting back into that way of playing. Very good game to watch this week and we are continuing to progress very well this season.

 

2007 – The boys were at home to Dean Thistle on Saturday. A couple of players were unavailable due to the holidays but again it was another pleasing display from the team. Progress is being made in all areas with again some nice build up play going forward creating lots of opportunities and scoring some good goals. Solid as usual at the back again with a few good saves from Ewan Griffiths who continues to improve in goal through hard work. There were a few lapses in concentration here and there but they’re only kids. Special mention this week goes to Ally Miller for a great display. Great effort from Ally tracking back and some good skill on the ball from him. We’ll do
