Talbot Academy news

 U19’s – Talbot welcomed Troon to Auchinleck for Sunday’s league match. Talbot started well and had Troon on the back foot from the first whistle. After 25 minutes of constant pressure, Talbot took the lead when the Troon goalkeeper was forced to make a good save however McLean was on hand to tap in the rebound, 1-0. On 35 minutes, Laird ran clear and was pulled down by the Troon goalkeeper. Dempsey stepped up to put

the penalty away, 2-0. The second half started in the same way, with Talbot knocking the ball around well and creating numerous chances. But it wasn’t until the 70th minute before they scored again. A long pass sent Dempsey clear and he fired an unstoppable shot into the top corner, 3-0. Talbot continued to create chances but failed to add to their lead. Troon managed a late goal after a mix up at the back post. Full time

Auchinleck Talbot 3 Troon 1.

2003 – Free week. Talbot have a top of the table clash at home to Hurlford on Saturday which is sure to be a great game.

2006 – Games postponed

2007 – The lads were at home to Cumnock on Saturday and didn’t produce the form that they have shown recently. Cumnock started the game on top as Talbot weren’t playing the free flowing football they usually do. Talbot grew into the game but passed up some glorious opportunities to score, most notably two one on one’s with good saves from the Cumnock goalkeeper. Into the second half, and Talbot just weren’t producing the goods. The boys have been making great progress with their quick attacking, creative play of late, but it was one of those days where it was never going to materialise. Still a few positives to take from the game and a lot of learning points too for the lads. Ryan Harte was much more steady and showing signs of his usual good play with good composure on the ball and aggressive tackling. Christiyan Simmonds had an

excellent game in goal, making a few great saves, showing great desire to do well. We’ll done.

2008 – Two teams were away to Valspar on Thursday night. Both Talbot teams have made progress recently and again showed spells of good stuff, putting together some good team moves with certain players showing good pieces of individual skill. Again, lots of learning points to take from the matches, with things to work on in training. The kids are enjoying their football which is good to see. Lapses in concentration creep

into their play in games but this will slowly begin to get better as they’re only young.Onto next week against Glenburn.

2009 – Three teams played at Prestwick on Sunday.

Golds- Started slowly but remained competitive in t heir first two games creating plenty of chances but failing to take them. In their third match they were excellent, creating lots of opportunities and scoring a few goals. They continued their good play on game four in what was a tough match against a good side. Talbot put in a great performance. Special mention to Calvin Gardiner who in only his second week of competitivefootball showed a great work rate with excellent passing and awareness.

Blacks- In their first two games the boys created plenty of chances however bad luck and good goalkeeping ensured things didn’t go Talbot’s way at times. It was end to end stuff in game three with both goalkeepers making some excellent saves to see out a goalless draw. A much improved performance in the last game with some good passing, movement and goals. A special mention to Caleb Muir who in only a few weeks here

continues to show good ability on the ball with some crisp passing and a sweet goal.

Tigers- A great start from the boys with some nice passing leading to some well take n goals. Good teamwork when defending and good distribution with the ball when won back in possession. The work rate from the boys was great, especially Frazer McFadzen who’s teamwork and passing were rewarded with goals.

2010 – Two Talbot teams played their first matches at Prestwick on Sunday morning. The weather was horrible but didn’t dampen the kids spirits. Talbot more than held their own, with each team playing four games against a variety of opponents. Talbot played with great enthusiasm and showed some great tackling and dribbling. They scored a good few goals and really enjoyed their football. An excellent start from Talbot in their footballing journey. The kids did their parents, coaches and the club proud.

2011 – Free week

GEORGE “PUGGY” ALLAN

Auchinleck Talbot were saddened to hear about the death of former captain George Allan. ” Puggy” was a magnificent servant at the club and was one of the players that was instrumental to Talbot’s rise to greater things. The club as well as the supporters would like to pass on our condolences to George’s family.

Auchinleck Talbot statement

TOMMY SLOAN

In November 2003 when the club eventually decided on a manager to replace Tom MacDonald we opted for Tommy Sloan, we’d taken 4 weeks to look at where we were, where we’d like to be and who would best suit the job, after taking some advice from well-respected people with a depth of knowledge of the Junior game, we interviewed Tommy and decided there and then he was the man for the job.

We were confident he had the ability to identify the strengths and weaknesses of players, and use this knowledge to build a new Talbot side capable of challenging again for the major honours.

PREMIER LEAGUE WINNERS: SCOTTISH JUNIOR CUP WINNERS.

 

A Premier League record of THIRD, FIRST AND SECOND in his first three full seasons speaks volumes of the man’s ability to create a winning formula, he went on to carry out the unenviable task of dismantling and rebuilding two great Talbot teams 2005/6 – 2009/10 then from 2010/11 – 2016/17.

 

This process has started again with heroes and legends leaving the club and new blood coming in to pick up the mantle, it is an understood fact that all coming and goings will not be agreeable to all fans as everyone has their own opinion and are entitled to that.

 

However, if any manager deserves respect, tolerance, understanding and most of all support to carry out his work as Team Manager it is Tommy Sloan, it was never to be expected that his every decision or judgement would be the correct one, but we were and still are confident that more often than not he’ll get it right. His priority is the team and their performance overall, not individual players, the committee’s attitude towards Tommy has not changed.

 

Finally, we as a committee should be allowed the respect to judge on whether the manager is up to the task or not and indeed we are positive that Tommy is, also over critical fans should take very good care of what they wish for as the wrong call on the position of our Team manager would no doubt have devastating consequences for Auchinleck Talbot FC.

Craig Pettigrew placed on transfer list

Auchinleck Talbot have placed defender Craig Pettigrew on the transfer list. The former Dumbarton and Stranraer star was signed at the start of this season after being freed by Stranraer.

James Latta who left the club last week has secured a contract at Premier rivals Kilwinning Rangers.

James calls it a day

Auchinleck Talbot FC are sad to announce that club captain James Latta has left the Auchinleck Talbot by mutual consent. James, a tremendous servant goes with our very best wishes for the future.

From James himself.

Thanks for all the comments. Gutted to be leaving but time to move on. I will be taking with me loads of great memories from my 13 years with the club. I have won everything there is to win in junior football, more than a few times (too many to mention). It will be hard for me not to be involved with Talbot after being at the club for so long and also staying around the corner from Beechwood. But I need to move on to get a chance at regular football for the last few years I have got left in me. I would like to thank all at Auchinleck Talbot, fans and committee for supporting me over the years. It’s been an honour to play for and captain the most successful club in junior football.
Thanks
James
