TALBOT BOYS CLUB NEWS.
2001’s Auchinleck Talbot 3 Prestwick 2. Hard game for the boys with Talbot managing to pull off the win. Goals came from Rhys Griffin 2 and Scott Whalen 1.
Man of the match went to Dylan McConnell.
2003’s Hard game against Irvine Meadow. A team made up of last season’s league winners. The score didn’t reflect the performance. The boys played good football in stages but couldn’t quite find that killer pass or next gear. Work rate, effort and never quit attitude was always there for all to see. Michael McCulloch with the goal, and brilliant performances as usual from Gavin Withers and Logan Murray. The boys now have a
few weeks break from games.
2005’s This week we were at home (Auchinleck Academy) against Ayr Boswell. This match was going to be challenging like every other time we had played them. We started off very competitively with really good football from both teams. Ayr Boswell opened the scoring but we soon equalised with Cody Gibson scoring. Talbot started playing with confidence and were dominating the game when Cody then scored a second goal
and we found ourselves 2-1up at half time. Talbot came out for the second half slightly sluggish and found that they were quickly under pressure and conceded a goal. This gave Ayr Boswell momentum and with Talbot playing some of their players out of position possibly put themselves under pressure and conceded another two. The final result did not reflect match as this was a well fought game with some excellent football from both teams. Unlucky Talbot.
2006 ‘s Boswell and Tigers were both at home on Saturday. Boswell were up against Catrine Youth and every boy performed exceptionally well. Excellent football resulting in good goals with the pick of the bunch coming from Lucca Announce with a fantastic shot from halfway and Lewis Smith with a well-deserved hat trick.
Tigers faced Nith Valley United and again every boy contributed with an outstanding performance. Passing, moving and working as a team was evident from the start and the football was pleasing to watch. Two good goals from Russell Hendry capped off a good day all round for the 2006’s.
2007’s Game for the boys against Troon on Saturday at Auchinleck Academy. A much improved performance from what we’ve seen in recent weeks from all the boys. Some lovely football was played. If it wasn’t for an excellent display from the Troon goalkeeper there would have been lots more goals as well. That’s the level of effort they need to show all the time so that they’ll get the benefit out of it. Keep it up boys. Special mention this week goes to Calum Auld for his work rate and excellent passing.
