2005 – Another away game this week, this time to Valspar at the Old Racecourse Ayr. Talbot put pressure on Valspar right from the kick off with some great passing and attacking football which lead to Cody Gibson scoring the opening goal in the first five minutes then within minutes he scored a goal right from the training ground when Talbot were awarded a corner, Calum Wilson passed to Cody Gibson from outwith the penalty box and he slammed the ball passed a despairing goalkeeper. Talbot were in the ascendancy even the defence were pushing forward Kye Bone, Jay Sharp and Josh Suitters were playing with confidence and Calum Wilson scored three along with Ewen MacMillan scoring two in the first half. The second half Talbot made a few changes and Valspar came into the game but the stand-in Talbot keeper Darren Jamieson had a great game and pulled off some great saves. Francis McGhee was solid in defence and Calum Duncan had a great debut and will fit well into the team. Taylor Fowler scored again two goals in two weeks and Cody Gibson scored another two just before full-time. Valspar did score five goals but this didn’t worry Talbot. This was an emphatic win for Talbot with the boys bouncing back brilliantly from last week’s defeat. Well done Auchinleck Talbot 2005s.

2007 – Games against Valspar on Saturday at Auchinleck Academy. Two really tight games with some good football at times from both sides. Movement and awareness needs a bit of work, as does composure on the ball. There were some decent individual pieces of play who then linked in with others afterwards which was pleasing. Our forward play is making progress but lots of work still to be done. Special mention this week goes to Tyler McPike for effort and passing.

2008 – The boys played at Prestwick on Sunday against Caledonian and Troon Dundonald. Really pleasing morning for the boys making great progress and came together on the day today. Good shape, defending and attacking play with all the boys contributing.
Special mention to Andrew Watson for good tackling and determination.

2009 – The boys really enjoyed their games this weekend with a big improvement in performance and understanding of how each other play the last game being especially pleasing as the boys really gave their all with Luke Hannah grabbing four goals in a great team performance
