2001 – Irvine Meadow 4 Auchinleck Talbot 6.
An outstanding performance displayed at the weekend by the Talbot boys. Everyone knew this was going to be a hard and physical game but from the minute the match kicked off Talbot were up for the challenge showing strength and determination and superb football skills. Another 3 points wee earned. Goals came from Jamie Conn -1 Taylor Kerr -2 Justin Barr -3. Man of the match went to Lewis Bell.

2003 – No game.

2005 – Auchinleck Talbot 2005s were at home this week at Auchinleck Academy to face Valspar United. Talbot instantly put on the pressure as soon as the ref blew his whistle for the start off the game with Valspar holding out in defence and the keeper pulling out some good saves. This didn’t last for long and Talbot had their breakthrough with Taylor Fowler opening the scoring with a well worked team goal with some great passing from defence through to attack. The pressure continued and Cody Gibson put Talbot two goals up then Calum Wilson made it three just before halftime. The confidence was high and Talbot couldn’t wait to get the second half started. Valspar tried to get back into the game but the Talbot defence was too strong and there were a couple of great saves from keeper Jack Scott. Talbot again put on the pressure with Taylor Fowler scoring a brilliant solo goal then Cody Gibson scored to put the game beyond Valspar United. This was a very good performance from Talbot 2005s… well done boys from the coaching team!!.

2006 – Only one game for the 2006’s on Saturday at Grange Academy against Dreghorn. The boys were fantastic from start to finish and the football being played for boys their age was exceptional. Teamwork, passing and moving and great goals was a joy to watch. Every boy deserves praise this week. Two goals from Russell Hendry and a hat-trick from Mason McNeillie wrapped up a very good day for the 2006’s.

2007 – Game for the boys against Dean Colts on Saturday at Auchinleck Academy. They started really well and kept the opposition on the back foot, creating a good few chances and working really hard. As the first half went on though, a lot of the boys started losing concentration and the effort started to slip a bit. This continued in the second half which let Dean into the game. There were some decent moves today, with just bad luck at times. Effort and attitude continues to be an issue for some of the boys though, not all of them. Hard work always beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard. Special mention this week goes to Joe Savage for some good touches on the ball, and a decent attitude.

2008 – The boys played against Greenan, Dean Thistle x2 and Shortlees on Sunday at Caledonian Parks. The boys played really well in their first three games. Their passing was good and they kept their shape well with only the finishing touch missing on occasion.
Good defending and playing from the back as well. The last game v Shortlees, the boys got overrun a bit but had the chances to win the game but we’re competitive which was encouraging.

2009 – The boys were playing in the fun fours on Sunday. They’re coming along nicely and making improvements each week. They’re enjoying their football. Man o the match this week was Finlay McRoberts for his determination, constant movement, passing & goals.
