TALBOT BOYS CLUB NEWS.
2003 – The lads played away at Prestwick on Sunday, and it was a great performance. Everyone contributed, especially Cameron McBride. The game ended in a one all draw. Another away point but it was a gutting result as we lost a goal in the last 30 seconds from a free kick. The boys are improving all the time and it’s brilliant to watch.
2005 – On Saturday we were at home to Nith Valley Colts. Nith from the start looked like the team that were up to play football and scored in the second minute of the game, it took Talbot a while to get into the game and when they did they started to play some nice attacking football with the ball hitting the post and the Nith keeper
pulling off some nice saves. Then Talbot had the breakthrough they deserved with Ewan MacMillan scoring a goal to level the game. At this point the game opened up and Nith scored and went in at half time with a narrow lead. Talbot started the second the way they started the first and conceded an early goal this made it difficult for Talbot but with determination and good team spirit closed the gap with a strong solo goal from Calum Wilson. Talbot pressed and looked like pulling off a well-deserved draw but Nith scored in the last minute.
2007 – Game against Ayr Boswell on Saturday at Auchinleck Academy. Some good play at times leading to some cracking goals. Hit the woodwork quite a few times as well. The passing was still a bit slow in the final third. We’ll continue to work on that at training though and it’ll click eventually. They’re starting to progress in the right areas now and attitudes are getting much better. All in all, it was a good display from the boys, with a special mention for Christiyan Simmonds for excellent skills and great forward passing.
2009 – The boys enjoyed another weekend at Prestwick with significant improvement being made each week. Drive, determination and will to win is becoming second nature to these young players. None more so than Lewis Parker who’s ball control, movement and ability to take the game to the opposition get better every time we play.
2008 – The boys played 2 games against Ayr Boswells at Prestwick on Sunday.
Another good morning for the boys who were highly competitive and showed spells of playing real good football. Boys are developing really well and trying to play good football which is pleasing. Special mention to Bobby Reid for outstanding tackling and positional sense.
