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 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.

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

U19’s – Troon 4 Auchinleck Talbot 6
Talbot returned to league duty on Sun day with a visit to Portland Park to take on Troon. It was a very open,
end to end first 20 minutes before Talbot took the lead through Speirs. 10 minutes later it was 2-0, with Laird
grabbinic the goal. Talbot were well in control at this stage, until a cross to the back post was misjudged by
the Talbot defence and Troon made it 2-1. Talbot continued to press and got a third goal thanks to a 25 yard
strike from McClung. Right on halftime, a free kick into the box was headed home by the Troon player,
making it 3-2. Five minutes into the second half Talbot take a 4-2 lead through Dempsey. Then on 65
minutes, a great passing move through the length of the pitch resulted in McClung tapping in his second of
the game. But straight from kick off Troon score again to make it 5-3. Then a mix up with a Talbot defender
and the goalkeeper resulted in another goal from Troon with 10 minutes to go. But with 5 mins remaining, a
great long pass from Crout sent Dempsey clear to make it 6-4 to Talbot at full time.

2003 – Cunninghame 1 Auchinleck Talbot 3
This was a hard fought win for Talbot, making it four from four this season. The Talbot boys had a free week
last week and it showed as they took their time to get themselves in front. The pitch didn’t help the situation
however as it was very narrow and bumpy. Nicolas Jakab put Talbot 1-0 up at half time after clever footwork
and a brilliant curling finish across the keeper into the bottom corner. In the second half, Cunninghame hit
back through bad decision making at the back making it 1-1. A change in personnel brought fresh legs and
desire into the Talbot side. They got their second through Zak Smith after a great through ball from Michael
Kane. Talbot went on to add a third after good hold up play from Callum Walker showing his strength and
laying it off to Keelan Stakim who found Nicolas Jakab for his second. Cunninghame were reduced to 10
men soon after, nearing the end of the game. Special mention to Bradley “the hitman” Harte who after
months out through injury made his comeback.
Joint man of the match: Nicolas Jakab with 2 goals and Keelan Stakim for winning everything in the
midfield and driving the boys forward.                                                                                                                                                                                                 2006 – Only one team with 9 boys available for the 06’s this week. Talbot were away to Galston who kindly
agreed to play one of their teams in the first half and the other in the second. Talbot started off not too bad
with some good football at times. As the game went on the boys struggled a bit and basic errors were
happening far too often. The second game was much the same although Talbot did manage two fantastic
goals from TJ Graham and Mason McNeillie which showed what the team could have done had they not put
their heads down after conceding a couple of goals. Unfortunately Talbot didn’t do themselves justice in this
game and the lack of numbers was always going to go against them. A bit of picking the boys up to be done
and and some work in training. On a positive note there was still some hard graft from a few and some really
pleasing football to watch at times from the Talbot boys.
2007 – A home game for the lads on Saturday against Cambusdoon. Talbot were playing in their new kit for
the first time and the football they played at times looked just as good as they did. Talbot started the game on
the front foot, piling on the pressure with some cracking forward play, using the full width of the pitch.
Cambusdoon’s goalkeeper deserves a mention as he was pulling off save after save. A quick break and slight
lack of concentration at the back let Cambusdoon up the field and they scored a good goal from distance into
the bottom corner. This didn’t affect the Talbot players though as they continued to play the same excellent
football and started to take their opportunities. The players were playing their first game in predominantly
new positions, and the desire shown was excellent. Some lovely quick passing and movement was causing
havoc along with sturdy defending, refusing to let the opposition through. Into the second half and it was one
way traffic for the most part. Again, Talbot were relentlessly piling on the pressure and put a few chances
away. Talbot’s speed of attack was really good for most of the match. A bit of work is required on making
slightly quicker decisions at times in the final third but this will come. The team have progressed well this
year and attitudes and desire are becoming better as this has been letting them down at times. When they
work hard, they are a joy to watch. Special mention this week goes to Shawn Blackmore for his aggressive
tackling and forward passing. The team would like to thank their new kit sponsor S2 Partnership Ltd for their
support.
2008 – No game.
2009 – Busy day for the 2009 boys playing in 2 sessions at Prestwick. A really slow start from the boys with
clear signs of them struggling to get up to pace with the other teams. They grew into each game and by the
time the second session came the boys were really up for it. There was some good play and goals from all
over the pitch. It was hard to single any one individual out but Robbie Young’s first touch was excellent. This
allowed him create space for himself and others with ease.
2010 – Will start playing games this coming Sunday. The team would like to thank their new kit sponsor
Boss Groundworks for their support.
2011 – Will also start playing games this coming Sunday. The team would like to thank their new kit sponsor
McTaggart Group for their support.
The 2012’s are training well. Their new training kit has been ordered and the kids are really enjoying
themselves.
