Girvan 3-3 Auchinleck Talbot. A really positive performance from the boys and were unlucky not to take all three points but an away draw is points on the board. That’s 3 draws, 1 win and 1 defeat in the last 5 games from last week. Next week the team are at home to Caley.
The first game of the new season was against Girvan Juniors and the weather was atrocious with strong winds and rain. Girvan got off to a good start with a goal in the first 10 minutes then Talbot quickly pulled one back through Cody Gibson which seemed to settle the team. Talbot then started to play some brilliant attacking football with the Girvan keeper pulling off some great saves to keep them in the game but Talbot got their reward just before half time when Fraser Hume scored from defence through to attack. The second half was comfortable for Talbot with the whole team working together leading to Calum Wilson scoring the third goal. There was no one stand out player in this game as the whole team played and tried hard with plenty of commitment. This was a good start to new season for Auchinleck Talbot 2005s.
Both the 2006 sides were up against it on Saturday due to a lack of numbers. Added to the fact that the games were played in very heavy rain made it very difficult for them. However, they battled on and played some very good passing football at times despite the bad conditions. It was the first league fixture after the summer break and they won’t be long in getting right back into the swing of things.
The boys played against Caledonian on Saturday morning. Played well at the start and created lots of opportunities but weren’t getting the breaks in front of goal. They kept on plugging away and the goals eventually came. In the second match they started slowly but then found that extra gear and again played some neat football. The ball needs to move quicker in the final third though which we’ll work on in training. Special mention this week goes to Ryan Harte for a solid aggressive performance and some positive forward passing.
